An Easter message

Goodness, I sound like the pope. Sorry, no disrespect meant.

The last few weeks have been rough. Still, I’m grateful, things could be far worse.

I’m alive, I have a fantastic family and friends. Another book is out, another on the way.

I would like to thank you all of you, readers, friends everywhere and friends on Facebook, Twitter and of course Women on the Verge.

Thank you so much for your kindness and your support.

I’m so touched by all your lovely messages. It’s tempting sometimes to share them but I don’t.

Why not? Because I respect the senders of this kindness. The fact they’ve sent a message privately tells me something, and I wouldn’t betray their confidence. If you share something for all to see, that’s another matter.

Some of these messages touch me very deeply, thank you for sharing your stories. Together we can share and make a difference. So thank you for letting me know when something I’ve said or written has made a difference.

Hope you all have a lovely Easter!

So, what will the Easter bunny bring you?

Nowhere Left to Hide by Elle Amberley

Described as “A heartfelt tale, told with a deft touch” by novelist Rowan Coleman.

Sometimes sad, sometimes funny, sometimes romantic, this much awaited novel is a story of hope, fighting against the odds & the determination to do the right thing.

‘Lyrical from start to finish, Elle Amberley embraces the essence of women and friendship in Nowhere Left to Hide. Natasha, a young poet and writer, is wise beyond her years, as she lets us accompany her on her year long journey from England to the sunny coast of Southern California as she finds courage, her true calling and love.’.

Computer rage, don’t you love the Internet?!

Heck,I’m not the most patient person in the world.Don’t get me wrong, I can be really patient with people I care about but when it comes to machines and myself, I seem to have none at all.

I hate waiting, the computer is always too slow and when it goes wrong, I want to scream with frustration.Often, I’m drumming my fingers waiting for downloads.Ok, so you might have guessed I ‘m not exactly computer savy.
In fact, if you’d told me 2 years ago, I’d end up spending so much time on the Internet and tapping away on a keyboard, I probably would have laughed.

I’ve been sucked in though by all the net offers you, so many interesting sites, you could waste hours, days and still there would be so much more to explore.
Of course, there’s also plenty of rubbish which you have to sift through and that can be quite maddening and time-wasting.Do I have time to waste?!
Shame you can’t filter all the trash that comes up , you have to go through this elimination process.
Still, sometimes, you get a pleasant surprise and often your eyes can open to new ways of thinking.

Some people regard the the Internet as evil, sure you do have to be careful but come on! Unfortunately, not everybody realises how much of themselves they’re giving away.

For my part, I’ve embraced the Internet.I can find all the music I love, find out what’s happening in the world, keep in touch with my friends all over the world.Yep, even the mad one constantly at my side who still finds the need to persecute me on my Twitter, joke!

The Internet also provides me with the tools I need to make the most of it.So often,I’m sat there wondering how to do this or that.When I started my blog, I had to find out how to burn a feed…Say what!
I didn’t have a clue but soon found out, thank you Google and all the geeks in this world!
So yes, I’ve surprised myself creating backgrounds for my profiles and so on.

Why do they have to make it so complicated though.Some things are dead easy like Twitter but when you want to do other things properly, there comes the challenge and my perfectionist side rears its ugly head and I get frustrated.Sometimes I think they like to make it more complicated than it should be so that you spend more and  more time slaving away.Perhaps it’s a conspiracy.Ok, only joking!

Most of all, I  really enjoy writing even more, blogging being so different from the writing I normally do.It has unleashed  all the thoughts and ideas swirling in my brain, quite liberating and refreshing.Tweeting was a challenge at first, expressing myself in 140 characters, a real challenge for my unrestrained mind.

Sometimes I just wish I had a button too, like a machine, at the very least a pause button to still my mind.
A little bit of peace, quiet please! Thank you very much.
