Still Alive!

Well, I managed to survive the weekend despite the portentous suicide mission of a crow.  Some friends and I went for a lovely meal at the Bottle and Glass in Gibraltar (Aylesbury, Bucks, UK – not the island!).  I highly recommend it.  It was nice to relax and chat without the kids nagging around us.  All parents know how hard it is to get that sort of time with friends. 

Today I managed to update the calendar at home with all the upcoming events from now until September and guess what?  We have one weekend free!  How did that happen?  One weekend to spend at home doing nothing and we are talking about using it to go camping!

C’est la vie. 

Just to see what type of ridiculous things I’d been receiving I decided to check my ‘junk’ folder on my email account and found (Aaaaggghhhh!) an email from agent requesting a full copy of my manuscript!  Can yo believe it?  I now wonder whether any other agents have tried to do the same and think I’m just ignoring them.  What should I do?  Contact them and apologise profusely whilst grovelling?  Luckily I have only submitted to about 4.



About Bea Turvey apprentice author and witch

I am a wild-haired author who cannot stop writing. The writing process is not a task for me. It is an extension of myself. When I write, I lose myself as easily as if I slipped into the story for a swim. Writing became a serious part of my life in Decmber of 2009. Unless you're reading this in 2017 it wasn't that long ago, and the bug hit me hard and fast. My first novel, Banished, was published in March 2010 and is available at If you read it, or anything else I've written, I hope you'll post a review and let me know why you liked it - or even why not!
