The Sunday Salon – Getting ready for another week

November has began in earnest and it is the oddest November I have seen in the UK in years... it's warm, can you believe it. Normally we are freezing our arses off but for some odd reason we are getting unexpected sunny mornings and I am loving it...

May it continue for a few weeks longer!!

We have also pushed our clocks back by an hour so we have longer mornings and the evenings are here before we can get anything decently done.

On the blog

This week I started my new feature on the blog WITH THESE WORDS -   I  want to thank you guys for supporting it. From my stats I am getting loads of visitors to the feature. Thank you.

I have two wonderful ladies coming up this week, one Monday and another on Friday - make sure you come over and welcome them to the publishing industry.

Being social on the net

On Saturday  I spend the evening with a handful of ladies online at the BBP (Book Blogger and Publisher catch up evening).  This was a prelude to the grand event coming up in March. This will be the third event organised by Terry Kate from Romance in the Back Seat...

It is a wonderful place for new bloggers, new authors, experience bloggers and authors who have been in the industry for awhile.. We spent the evening talking about vlogging, some of the finer details of reviewing and  trying to get a list together of all the new pubs that are out there.... and of course loads of giggles was intermixed in there as well.

The fun part for me was of course the small pub, as I read alot of them as I like to try my hand at the odd and the weird. It was as always a fun time with the ladies and it is nice to just connect with people who do the same thing you do and are faced with the challenges I am facing...

I really needed that boost as I have been in a blogging slump of sorts recently..

As always I am still struggling to get reviews done, but as always I live in hope that I will get back up to speed and start doing a few...

Keep your fingers cross that I get a few up this week.

I am reading though never fear...

You guys have a great week..

 

Until next week – cheers


From  site –

What is the Sunday Salon? Imagine some university library's vast reading room. It's filled with people--students and faculty and strangers who've wandered in. They're seated at great oaken desks, books piled all around them, and they're all feverishly reading and jotting notes in their leather-bound journals as they go. Later they'll mill around the open dictionaries and compare their thoughts on the afternoon's literary intake....

That's what happens at the Sunday Salon, except it's all virtual. Every Sunday the bloggers participating in that week's Salon get together--at their separate desks, in their own particular time zones--and read. And blog about their reading. And comment on one another's blogs. Think of it as an informal, weekly, mini read-a-thon, an excuse to put aside one's earthly responsibilities and fall into a good book.

Hi, E.H., I know just what you mean about both the blogging slump and struggling to catch up on reviewing, so you're in good company. :) At least you have some good weather to enjoy!

@Blo..

I so hope it stays around for a while - however I know it will only end up to a brutal winter..
