Tiny Tales Assembled: I’m on Amazon!

Tiny Tales Assembled: I’m on Amazon!

Six words of shameless self-promotion to indicate that my six-word stories are now available to buy. You know, if you like reading them and are feeling nice…

Yes, after stating on my bucket list that I’d like to have a book published, I can officially say that I have achieved this goal!

Okay, so yes I did it myself. I’ll still hold on to the notion that one day a traditional publishing house will snap up my words and I’ll be subjected to a whirlwind of signings and film offers and be asked to cut the ribbon at the opening of my theme park.

Until then, I have taken the plunge to collate all my Tiny Tales written so far, working over the last few weeks to pop them on Amazon. Some have appeared within blog posts, several have been entries to the weekly challenge hosted by Nicola Auckland, but there are plenty of new ones too. Oh, and I tried to entertain you with some added illustrations …but full disclosure, I’m no Van Gogh!

KINDLE COVER (401x640)

I’m working on offering a print version but for now it is available to download on Kindle. This is all very new to me, I’m bound to have done something wrong or shouldn’t have listened to the Amazon advice on pricing, or whatever.

However, even if you’re not interested in funding my trip to Iceland, I’d be beyond grateful if you shared its existence. It may appeal to other authors or educators as starting points for creative writing – I have to be confident that someone will want a copy.

Mum, I hope you are you reading this…

So, hmmm, yeah… that makes me feel a bit awkward if I’m honest. I’m not too good at the selling yourself role. Any feedback appreciated – I’ll definitely respond once I’ve stopped squirming in the corner.

In the meantime, you can find the details here and look inside to laugh at my attempts at art… https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01J42MHK0

Thanks muchly,

I’m leaving on a… train/plane!

Well, it looks like Miss. Bobbins is about to jet off on her holibobs – in other words, it’s vacation time!

Tomorrow, we shall be taking the train down to old Londinium, where I shall get to see my first classical concert since I was eight – at the Royal Albert Hall no less! I am incredibly excited. 😀

We’ll then be jetting off to the apparently beautiful garden isle of Madeira – obviously I had to choose a destination that was a name of a cake!

So, this is really just to say that there will be no posts for the next week or so but then I’ll be back – with a VLOG! (Assuming I can get around any technical issues of course!)

As I can’t be away from Wifi for too many hours, I’m sure I’ll be checking in on the rest of you and perusing your posts whilst I sit in the sunshine. And I doubt I’ll be able to contain my excitement from Twitter when I’ve been to the concert. So have a lovely week and I’ll see you when I get back and the Bobbins will have turned ONE!! Where does the time go?

Tatty bye for now… 🙂

Announcing a future announcement… AGAIN!

Announcing a future announcement… AGAIN!

Just a quick reminder everyone – If you want to ask me a random question such as what my favourite childhood shoes were or which literary figure would I boast about the blog to, you’ll have to think of something else because they’ve been taken!! Don’t know what I’m on about? Well, what’s new! Read on… 😉

The reason for this ‘save the date’ type announcement is, well, would you believe it…Aloada Bobbins turns ONE YEAR OLD next month!! How on earth did I manage it?! 😀

Naturally, I want to celebrate this minor achievement (which for my infinitely faddy tendencies is a major accomplishment!) but I was wondering what to do.

Announcing a future announcement

Announcing a future announcement

Hey everyone. 🙂

So, this should have gone out yesterday but we had a bit of a family emergency when my G-Pa (i.e. grand daddy Bobbins) was taken into hospital suddenly. He’s okay (ish) but we’ve had a bit of a battle on with the NHS and whilst they are fabulous on the one hand, at the moment they clearly couldn’t organise a viral outbreak in a petri dish. But hey-ho.

Anywho, the reason for this ‘save the date’ type announcement is, well, would you believe it…Aloada Bobbins turns ONE YEAR OLD next month!! How on earth did I manage it?! 😀
