Just a quick post to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a healthy and happy New Year. The last two years have been hard for all of us and we can only hope the worst is behind us now.
I had expected that lock down and staying home would prove beneficial to my writing but I was wrong. I have really struggled. I've been restless, and disillusioned, unable to concentrate and horrribly stressed. I am behind with both the non-fiction book I am writing and the second in my Henrician series. Come the New Year, I really must get a grip and sit down and force myself to do some serious writing. But first, I have some serious feasting to do.
Over the holiday, keep an eye out for Historical Times Magazine war of the roses issue. I have written a piece about Margaret Beaufort and will be giving away a FREE paperback copy of The Beaufort Bride. So if you havent signed up yet, better do so right away on the following link. It is free to join. https://www.historicaltimes.org/
On a more pensive note, not everyone can be with their families this year. Many of us have lost loved ones and will be missing them over the festive period. The only thing we can do is be glad for the times we did have with them. Raise your glasses and try not to be sad when you look back on happier Christmases, try to be thankful, and if you cannot hug your nearest and dearest, then smile instead. It is what they'd want after all.
Be of good cheer, Spring is coming! and in 2022 I resolve to finish both my books, restore my storm wrecked garden and take the bold step of getting out more. What are you going to do in 2022?
