You may remember, at the end of September, my back ‘went’ – this is a handy word that covers all kinds of episodes, incidents and peculiarities – and it has only just, very recently, returned.
Being incapacitated is not fun. Pain is tiring.
You get to the stage where you fib if anyone dares to ask how you are as the sound of hearing yourself moan, again, again, and once more for luck is just so dull and boring.
Old lady grunts (lots), profanities tumbling from mouth un-restrained (not pretty), not being able to drive (frustrating), blue toe nails (hideous colour, not one I'd ever choose) were quite common-place and it became hard to imagine any kind of normality and comfort would ever return.
It took Mick, hypnosis, hospital, an amazing surgeon’s magical mojo, several injections (caudal epidural, facets and sacroiliac joints for those who want the minutia of information :)), my family and most cool friends to help me heal. But, recover I did because of having such amazing love and support. Thank you.
And now… 6th and Bedroom Books continue to attract fantastic authors but there are many readers waiting so if you write in the genres: paranormal/parapsychology and/or romance/erotica please look through the respective websites. There are direct links to each on the publishing page.
The Winter issue of The New Writer is out and together with Bedroom Books we are looking for the next best-selling author. If you would like to write romance and or erotica or you have sex/lovelife-pertise please check out the magazine and get your entry in.
In other news, we are now living the dream of having a Greek Island home to complement our one here in the UK. This means I can offer more retreats and specialist holidays for groups and individuals on Lesvos. Squeal and happy dance.
If you fancy spending some time on a Greek Island relaxing by and in the Aegean being bathed in bliss as you write your book, develop your intuition, create your best life or if you'd like a bespoke holiday package just throw yourself through the olive on the right-hand-side of the page for more information. Hope to see you there x

These posts are a mixture of information, interviews and tips for writers and those who are interested in getting published.
I also write about my back and the road to recovery and something might resonate with others in pain and maybe my discoveries will help.
Overall it seems that I prattle.
