RELAX AND WRITE

Here’s my pick for great gifts for the writer in your life – or as a special treat for yourself if you’re the one scribbling away like a fury.
1. The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron.artists way

I recommend this book to just about everyone I meet. It was the book that got me finally acting towards my long-held dream of being a writer. It’s practical, uplifting and guaranteed to get you writing or painting or dancing – or whatever creative pursuit brings you joy.

2. A room with a door that closes – or at the very least a screen to close off a corner of another room. That’s what I have, and it works just fine. Writers need a space of their own and plenty of privacy – we often do quite crazy things when we’re writing, and it can scare other people!

THRILL SEEKERS REBORN!

I’m super excited to announce that Thrill Seekers has just been released as a new imprint through Raven Books UK. I love the new cover – it looks like a best seller!

Best of all is the fact that at last it is going into bookstores! YES!! When it was first released, I had to distribute it to bookstores myself and managed to have it stocked by a handful of wonderful independents, but now Thrill Seekers is going mainstream – and in time for Christmas!! WOW!

I may be just a little bit happy about this.

I think I’m somewhere between the serene goddess and the camel.

So, if you’d like to buy a copy of Thrill Seekers for yourself, or someone else, for Christmas, it’s now available in all good bookstores throughout the UK and even here in Australia. Angus and Robertson have it reduced at the moment so go for it! See HERE for more information and to purchase.

Never give up on your book babies people. I fought to get Thrill Seekers published many years ago and I thought it had had its run.

But here it is with a second chance at life, going out into the world, not as a baby anymore but as a wild teen – like the characters it portrays. Go forth and conquer little book!

I’ll leave you with a quote from Brian, one of the main characters in Thrill Seekers

“Feeling ten feet tall with a chest as wide and strong as a bear’s, I roll with the movement of the boat. Salty water sprays my face and my cheeks stretch into a mighty grin.”

What second chances have you been given? Have any of your stories had a second chance at life? I’d love to hear from you.

Lots of love,

Edwina xx
