Brand new me!

I just received an email from someone who read my previous post about my website being in need of an extreme makeover.  She clicked the link and found  what she describes as a 'lovely' site. 

And it is!  My cunning plan for a skills exchange worked.  I am mentoring a lovely author who I know via WordCloud.  I hope one day to be posting about the amazing publishing deal she's been offered.  Meanwhile, her wonderful husband has been beavering away, doing all the techy stuff that would have been waaay beyond me.  What do you think?  You like? 

While I'm here, I'd just like to explain why I'm not seen in these here blogging parts as much as I'd like.  I'm hosting another 6 week online self-edit course with Emma Darwin.  This is the 4th time we've run this course and we're lucky enough to have yet another talented and proactive group.  Bookings are already coming in for the next one in September.  

I also have a stack of MSs for editing.  Most of these come through Writers' Workshop though I also have people straight coming to me.  Details of how that works are here. 

Then there's the build up to the Festival of Writing in York early in September.  I'm running a self-edit mini course, a couple of workshops (psychic distance and prose microscope) and several Book Doctor sessions.  (I think the latter are fully booked but there are plenty of slots available with other people.)  The full festival programme is here.

There are some other things going on but I'm going to have to be a bit mysterious and not tell you yet.  They're exciting though!
