January 2019

I’ll start with a small apology…… life got in the way and I omitted to write a newsletter last month. (I also forgot to add writing it to my To Do list and with all the buzz of the run up to Christmas etc, I forgot about it!)

I mentioned in November’s newsletter that I would be busy with my music blog in December and I was! During December I enjoyed three great nights of music. Missed my reviews of those shows? Not to worry, you can catch up here https://the525toglasgow.wordpress.com/

Currently there are seven gigs in my 2019 calendar but that list is bound to grow somewhat as more tours are announced. Do you think I’d get away with badging it as “book research”? LOL

December also saw a guest indie author make an appearance on my blog. I welcomed Mark Grint aka Christian W Smith along to share his excellent short story Alana of Great Lindford and some insights into his writing. If you missed it, you can catch up here https://coralmccallum.wordpress.com/2018/12/03/introducing-2/
If you are an author with a new novel underway or have a short story to share and would like to be featured on my blog, please contact me. Guests are always welcome.


The next instalment in my Silently Watching series rounded off the year on my blog. It never ceases to amaze me how popular that particular dark angel is. Don’t worry, she’ll be back later this year.


My primary creative focus is still Book Baby 5. Progress has been steady throughout December and as planned I began the long arduous process of typing it up on 1st January. The current loose plan is to write/type for the first half of this year, type/edit over Summer and into Autumn then, all being well, Book Baby 5 will take its first tentative steps into the world towards the end of the year. It’s a tall order as there is a huge amount still be done but I’ll give it my best shot!

As my mantra says “Dreams get you started. Discipline keeps you going”. I’m going to need all my self-discipline to bring this one in on schedule- trust me!
Till next time…..
