Greetings from Scotland!
I hope you’re okay during these trying times. Even some of the most relaxed people are finding it hard to stay calm. Therefore, I’ve made my Kick Anxiety eBook free until Tuesday 31st March at 11.59 pm PDT.
Also, I recently released a novelette, I Can’t Go Back to Maplethorpe. At the moment, it’s just 99p or equivalent. It’s a rom-com set in the 1970s and has a little story behind it...
In the sixth form, my hubby’s mate, Dave announced, ‘A gorgeous girl has moved in with me.’
‘But you live with your parents,’ said my hubby.
‘I know. But Mum and Dad feel sorry for her.’
Dave had met a pretty girl in a disco and invited her to tea the next day. After swallowing a bite of Victoria sponge,’ she burst into tears and said, ‘I can’t go back to Mablethorpe.’
Turned out the girl hated life in her seaside town and had spent all her spare money on a few nights in London. And whenever someone suggested she should return home, she’d cry and reiterate, ‘I can’t go back to Mablethorpe.’
‘So, what happened to her?’ I asked my hubby a few years ago after he told me the story.
He shrugged. ‘I don’t know.’
I know – frustrating.
So, I changed Mablethorpe (a real place on the east coast of England) to Maplethorpe (a faux seaside resort on the east coast and tapped away on the keyboard as I Can’t Go Back to Maplethorpe appeared.
That’s it for now, folks.
Stay happy and healthy, and I’ll see you soon.
