READING TO HELP A CHARITY
I love to buy books as presents. I wanted to find a book that would let my mom know how much I appreciate her. As an author, I decided to write the story to say how much I love her. I told my friend what I had planned to do. Grace, also an author, wanted to do the same. We set out to write our two stories, but Grace suffers with MS and it became so bad she had to stop writing. I sent out an appeal to authors worldwide to write stories for Mother's Day, and to donate 10% of every book sold to MS. My call was answered by 13 special authors and our Mother's Day Magic box set was born. Read these beautiful stories and help stop a crippling disease––MS!

MAKING PLANS and an error worth finding.

Hi there. A huge thanks to all 500 plus of you who downloaded Volume One of the Future Movers anthology.  I hope you enjoy my novellas and want to move on to Volume Two.  Meanwhile I've arranged a brand new cover for A Talent for Loving, and as this is the prequel to the whole series - and where The Future Movers all began, I thought it desired a new look.
I'll be uploading it to Amazon within the next week so it will be available as a single - a bit like a tasty starter course before the main meal.

A tip to those of you who enter competitions: Last week I sent off an entry and three days later decided to print it out. Disaster: a very wide right-hand margin and when I printed out the first page of the RTF file I just had a row of overprinted letters at the begininng of each line.  I checked the print preview on both documents and it looked perfect each time. I ran off the first page of other documents in the PC, all good. I tried copying  and pasting the prose into a new file and the error went with it!

I eventually retyped it, luckily only 3000 words, in a new file and have resubmitted it, with a covering note. There is no way the previous submission could be read as I sent the file as an RTF, thinking I was doing the right thing.

MORAL: Always print out the first page of anything you send off to a competition, just to be sure the file is not corrupted.
Here is the new cover, coming soon on Amazon.

Thanks to Annie Seaton for compiling this. Love it.
