The RNA Conference and More!

Hello! Happy Thursday! It is sweltering here in London, but at least we can say it is definitely summer. I spent last weekend somewhere in rural Shropshire at the RNA conference, and I think I'm still in recovery.

Nevertheless, I did manage to revive myself enough to head to Amazon's Christmas Wishlist Event to represent KDP. Here is the lovely shiny stand.

And above, an amazing book bench on Bloomsbury Square, just across from where the event was held.

Here are some lovely writers at last week's conference, all set for the Gala.

Me and Mandy Baggot.

Lorraine getting into the spirit.

Sarah, Rhoda and Liz.

The wonderful Jan Jones and Roger Sanderson.

And I am now going to go collapse into a sweaty heap on the floor. Have a great week, everyone!

Happy Canada Day - And Other Bits and Bobs


First of all, happy Canada Day to my fellow Canadians. I hope everyone had a lovely day!

Here in London, it's been hot and sunny, and I've been out and about enjoying the wonderful weather while it lasts. I'm still slogging away on my novel - Draft 4 now! - and it's getting there. Sigh.

But I won't bore you with that. Here are some photos of my latest exploits.

This summer's Serpentine Pavilion, which I visited today.

A publication-day gift from my Amazon team!

Baby TR in his finery at a recent wedding we attended at Waddesdon Manor in Buckinghamshire.

The beautiful venue. 
And there you have it! Happy Fourth of July to my American friends. I hope everyone is enjoying the summer!
