About me

Creativity is my life-blood. My passions are choral music and writing, and if I can combine the two, so much the better. With a piano in the kitchen, it’s not unknown for me to combine a bit of practice with cooking meals for my schoolteacher husband and two teenage children. Maybe an aga-saga will be next, following recent publication of my memoir. I have an appetite for tasty metaphors and I’m a stickler for correct spelling and grammar – so if you find an erroneous apostrophe in my work, please let me know!

I'm considering trying to interest my local independent bookshop, and also possibly upgrading my publishing plan, but wouldn't want to do so until this is resolved. A blank spine isn't the greatest selling technique! Have a good weekend, Katherine (more) and won+3

I'm still unclear, though, why it wasn't possible to print the title and my name on the spine, as it's 183 pages long and the 'cover creator' tutorial indicated a much shorter page count as precluding spine printing. It simply didn't let me do it when I tried. Do you know if there's anything I'll be able to do about that if I revise it? Or should I try and contact CPI direct? Cheers, Katherine (more) and gained+3

With that in mind, I've ordered some extra hard copies of my book, but I haven't even had the first lot delivered yet - in fact, it looks like they're still being printed even though delivery was expected on Saturday 17th. I've sent an enquiry message to the printers, but haven't had a response - should I be worried? The first order was for 10 copies, so maybe it would normally take longer for a bulk run? Grateful for any advice, Katherine (more) and won+3

I've posted a few reviews of my own, but nobody has yet reviewed my memoir, so if you'd like to take a look, I'd love to read your comments or talk to you about it.
