Building work update, and #BookBub Featured ad follow up

Life and work, including writing the new equestrian book, is pretty busy just now, and I’m cramming in what I can before I have to take a bit of downtime – I’m having my first hip replacement towards the end of April. I’m both anxious, and at the same time I can’t wait! I have […]

Best Laid Plans… #BookBub #Internet

For my first post of 2022 I want to start by thanking all those who helped to make the launch of THE PRINCE’S HEIR my most successful book launch to date. I planned well ahead for a 0.99c sale on book #1, THE PRINCE’S MAN, and booked a week’s worth of promotions – 10 paid […]

How far ahead do you think? #EstatePlanning for #Authors

I am no expert on this subject, but I’ve saved a few notes about it with a ‘get to this someday’ tag. It’s not something we like to think about – dying – but for the sake of our family and friends, we really should bite the bullet, so to speak. Please be assured nothing […]

UPDATE: THE PRINCE’S HEIR and our building work!

First reports are in from my Beta Readers with a gratifying thumbs up for the plot and the finish. I’m really excited to get this one out into the world – I wrote the epilogue a couple of years ago, even before I began writing this final instalment, it was such a beautiful way to […]

Doggie fun in the sun – and the rain! #Scotland

This post is particularly for those of you who read, enjoyed, and commented on last week’s ’10 Things You Might Not Know about…’ series, which featured yours truly: https://marciamearawrites.com/2021/10/27/tenthingsyoumaynotknow-about-deborah-jay/ Many of you commented on our pack of rescue dogs, so I thought I’d share some pictures of them having fun.

In celebration of my husband’s remarkable complete recovery from COVID-19, I have made an executive decision! (Alert the Media!) The best way I can think of to share our good fortune with others is to have a BIG SALE, so for at least a week (possibly a bit longer),…

This year’s #garden

I am still hard at work on the final book in this Five Kingdom’s cycle – THE PRINCE’S HEIR – currently working out the exact sequence of events in the huge climax this 4 book sequence has been leading up to. I’m also putting a few sample chapters together for my equestrian publisher for their […]

#BookReview: WITCHY BUSINESS by Eve Paludan and Stuart Sharp #Supernatural

I’m still snowed under with stuff to do, and about to set off again on the long haul south to teach (and judge at the British Dressage Winter Championships – yay!), so just a quick book review this week. Witchy Business by Eve Paludan My rating: 4 of 5 stars I picked this up because […]
