Good morning, all! Got another Magic Eye for you, and this one might just be my favourite. Enjoy...
It's been a sad week for my family; on Monday we had to say goodbye to our beautiful dog, Wellington. He really was a sweetheart, and it's so strange being in the house without him. I keep reminding myself he was sixteen, so we were lucky to have him that long.

So, it's been a strange week; my writing mojo departed again, my other job has been really busy and I was resigned to not making any progress on my WIP (book 2 in the Soul Protector series), BUT, something has sparked me off again; just before I went to bed last night, I checked facebook and found a message from an old friend I haven't seen for years. Here's a snippet...
Hi Mandy and I've got 1 thing to say to you.... OH MY GOD, I got your book last Friday and I finished it by Sunday night, gone midnight - it is the best book I have read for years, maybe ever! I could not put it down. How clever are you??? I am so so impressed. It was brilliant. Please write the sequel!!!!
Needless to say, the smile is back on my face and I'm itching to write again! :o)
I'm probably late to the party as usual, but I've just discovered Follow my book blog Friday - a great way to connect and meet with other writers/readers. Click the picture below for the link.

Q. It's that pesky magic book fairy again! She has another wish: What imaginary book world would you like to make a reality?
Hmm, it would have to be one where I had some sort of power - maybe the Sookie Stackhouse series, because being nosey, I would love to know what everyone else is thinking!
I read a quote once that writing a book is like standing on a street corner naked, waiting to see what everyone thinks of you. That's so true. Getting feedback is priceless, especially when it's positive. Even negative feedback is better than nothing; as long as the reviewer has taken the time to explain what they didn't like. I now make sure I review every book I read, because I know somewhere, some author will be sat behind a computer, chewing his/her fingernails, waiting to see what people think.
Have a great weekend people!! xx
