Christmas is coming and the year seems to be slipping through my fingers.
The new Help Musicians card is available for purchase from Help Musicians ( I don’t sell the cards myself, sorry)
Back at the studio table again after a jaunt out to Crickhowell festival, a lovely stop off at Booka in Oswestry to sign books ( both absolutely wonderful bookshops) and to Ty Newydd for the Rooted in Nature writing course. What an amazing place that is. Met some fantastic people, and a glorious river.
Good to be home and feeling focussed. Fires in the evening, work punctuated by dog walks up the hill, on the beach, at the airfield.
I’m trying to avoid the time bandit of facebook, but still active on twitter. I may drop off facebook for a sabbatical, as I really need to keep sharp focus on work and not be led astray by beauty of argument. So much work to do if I am to meet the deadline.
All of my books are out now, including The White Fox from Barrington Stoke and a new edition of Tell Me a Dragon from Quarto. Anna has been on holiday and will soon have the new ones up on the website.
The Quiet Music exhibition is still running in Cirencester, and I have been asked to contribute some bears to a show in Newcastle at Seven Stories, so may be heading up that way in the late spring. It’s a touring show, so I will try and let people know where it is.
Oh, and I have some work still in auctions, both to raise money for hospices. This piece at Blue Ginger. You need to go to their facebook page to bid.
This second one is at Postcards from Life.
Meanwhile here is a sneaky sideways look at some details from The Lost Words.
