Hello Again!

Hello Again!

I'm so sorry I haven't been posting since the New Year, but I have been so carried away finishing a novel I started last year, I haven't had time to stop by.

Anyway, I finished it last night and now it is in the hands of an editor. I'm hoping she doesn't find too many errors. However, I tend to write as I think and as my thinking is always muddled these days, that's how my writing turns out.

Body in the Park is the title, unless I have second thoughts. The story is set on Tyneside once again and revolves around Agnes Lockwood and DCI Alan Johnson.. If it does as well as my last book, then I will be very happy.

Certificate and medal for Murder on Tyneside
Talking of my last book, Murder on Tyneside, I am delighted to be able to tell you that it was voted 6th in the top 50 books for 2017, which were written by indie authors and/or published by indie publishers.

I was so pleased to receive a certificate and a medal from the competition organizers.


We had snow here a few weeks ago and, though it has now disappeared, it seems to be trying to come back again. There have been snow flurries on and off all day today. It is also very cold. I had hoped that, as the days were getting longer, spring was on its way. Perhaps I am expecting too much; after all it is still only February.

I really need to make an appointment for another back and neck massage. I had to cancel the last one because of the snow and I haven't got around to making another. But I have to say I have missed lying there while the lovely lady relieves all the stress and tension from the muscles around my shoulders. Highly recommended. Anyone living near the Roxburgh Hotel in the Scottish Borders should give their beauty parlour a whirl. It is situated alongside the hotel, which is surrounded by wonderfully well kept grounds.

I would also like to take this opportunity to mention a novel by Lorna Read. The title is: The Earl's Captive and I have to say I really enjoyed it.
If you would like to take a look for yourselves, it can be found on an amazon near you.

I think that is all for today, but hopefully I'll be back soon.

Cheers!!

Wishing you a Happy New Year!!!

I am afraid that our Christmas didn't go to plan this year.

On Christmas Eve, my husband was whisked into hospital. It seems he had flu, a chest infection and a high potassium level. He was kept in until late afternoon on Boxing Day.

He does seem to be progressing well since he arrived home, so fingers crossed he will continue to get better.

I do hope you all had a wonderful time over Christmas and are now looking forward to the New Year. I wonder what 2018 will have in store for us. Maybe it's best not to ask...

I do hope you all have Happy and Prosperous New Year.

Happy New Year to you all.

Merry Christmas

At bit later than I expected, but here I am.

Last Sunday, we went to see my sister and her husband and my niece and her lovely family. We exchanged Christmas presents and of course all our good wishes for the season. It was great seeing them.

Since we came home on Monday, the week seems to have flown by. I don't feel I have had time to write a long and meaningful blog to you all.

Nevertheless, now that I am here, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and, just in case I don't get back before the New Year, Best Wishes for 2018.

Merry Christmas Everyone and thank you for staying with me.

Cheers!

Deadline Approaching

Hi Again,

A big thank you to all who have voted for Murder on Tyneside in the Read Freely competition to find the 50 Best Indie Books of 2017.

The deadline is approaching fast - I believe the comp closes on 5th December. If you haven't yet voted and you would like to, then please follow this link: Murder on Tyneside

I understand that it takes you to a pre-filled form. All you have to do is add your name and email, as they want to make sure no one votes more that once for the same book. Then submit. If the link takes you to the home page of the site, then try again. It tends to do its own thing at times!! 😅

I will let you know how the competition went once I have the results.

Thank you all once again. You are all stars!! ☆☆☆

Cheers!!

A Big Favour - Please Help!

Hi everyone. Yes, it's me, Eileen Thornton and once again I am seeking a very big favour from you all.

I am sure you all helped me out earlier this year when my novel, Murder on Tyneside was in a competition to be Book of the Month for July. Well, whatever you guys did, it worked, because Murder on Tyneside won the vote.

Now it seems Read Freely are seeking out the best 50 books of 2017 and I do hope that Murder on Tyneside will at least be one of them, if not in the first 10 or so. However, I can't make it happen on my own.

Murder on Tyneside
Therefore, I need each and everyone of your to nominate my novel, Murder on Tyneside to be in the top 50 books for 2017.

As I said, Read Freely are running this competition. Simply click on this link:- READ FREELY which will take you to the site and fill in the nomination form. (It is quick and easy to do - you don't have to jump through any hoops or anything)

I would really appreciate your support.

Meanwhile, I am still working on a sequel to Murder on Tyneside, though I am very near the end. At the moment, I am in the process of trying to bring the whole thing together. Not an easy thing for me to do when I have loose ends flying all over the place. Nevertheless, I am really hoping to have it finished before the end of the year.

I am also trying to work out what to get for Christmas presents. This year I have started early - well earlier than usual. However, I I know that I will still be rushing around the shops or on the internet on December 20th!! How many of you feel the same way??

I think that's all for the moment,

I'll get back to you very soon

Take care and enjoy the day

Cheers!!
