Magazine Articles, Bereavement Poem & Readers' Feedback

MAGAZINE ARTICLES

Sorry I haven’t had time to update my diary lately. It’s been a bit hectic. Besides, what is there to say about this sodden summer? Several interviews and articles featuring my novel, A Painful Post Mortem have appeared in various publications: Activate, The Christian Writer, Devon Today among them, with more to follow.

WEBSITE

My bereavement poem, Death Is But A Door – an excerpt from the book – has generated huge interest among readers. It was positioned at No. 8 by Google, and they’ve ranked my website 3/10. Quite an achievement, I feel, given that I’ve only been blogging for a couple of months, and many websites don’t rank at all.

READERS’ FEEDBACK

Several readers have been kind enough to e-mail their comments about the book (mainly positive!) and I’m always grateful for this. You know, instantly, whether or not you’re engaging with an audience you’re speaking to, and have the opportunity to make adjustments if and when necessary. Writing is a solitary task in the process and aftermath unless readers comment, and if you feel you haven’t struck a chord, you’re stuck with a work which is unchangeable. It can be quite dispiriting – so thank you, all who have taken the trouble to write. Please continue. I love to hear from you.
