Hey guys – wherever you are hailing from, it is great to have you!
As part of my recent blog tour, I recently ran a competition for five people to win one of my books. I was absolutely blown away by the sheer numbers of people who entered; not only because there was a huge number, but because they were based in countries from all over the world.
You’d think that I’d be used to this. After all, I have people reading my blog from countries as far away as Romania, Brazil, and even Ghana. As a writer from the UK, that is pretty mind blowing. I guess I am one of that strange generation that is young enough (just about!) to remember growing up in a home without a computer. The internet made a funny little tune whenever we logged on, and you couldn’t talk on the phone at the same time.
If you had told me then that I would soon have my historical novels read by people from across the globe, I definitely would not have believed you! I still have to remind myself that this is really happening sometimes. Living by my pen gets a lot easier when I receive feedback and hellos from readers across the world that love what I write. Which is just of mental.
