As we all continue our struggle to survive lockdown without our families and friends at our side, I have realised how much I rely on them for so many things. The first that comes to mind is technology.
At the moment my phone is that black device that lurks in my pocket and makes a funny noise when someone wants to contact me. Phone calls I can manage, texts make some sense and even emails have been known to send, at least to someone if not always the right person.
So it is with great trepidation that I have tried to follow what is happening with our writing group, the Whittlesey Wordsmiths. Some of the more adventurous have taken this opportunity to practise meeting virtually via Zoom, (apparently that is not just an ice lolly any more).
We have started a new online project, writing twelve novels where each member contributes a chapter, so twelve or so chapters, I think. (Put my name down for Maths as well as IT).
So WATCH THIS SPACE for more publications.
In the meantime we have been thrilled to learn that we have been taken on board by Waterstones, who are now selling the following titles online:
Where the Wild Winds Blow Whittlesey Wordsmiths
A Following Wind Whittlesey Wordsmiths
The Railway Carriage Child Wendy Fletcher
A Year Before Christmas Cathy Cade
Not on Waterstones yet but available on Amazon:
Witch Way and other ambiguous Stories Cathy Cade
So, if you’re looking for some new reads you can find us there.
