Lynne Stringer – Author & Editor

christmasbusyMerry Christmas!

I haven’t been too regular with my blogs just recently, mainly owing to just how busy it gets when you’re promoting a new book, especially when it’s Christmastime.

Having pneumonia hasn’t helped either. Even though I only have ‘walking pneumonia’ it’s still been hard to find my ‘get up and go’ to do all the things I need to do at this time of year. Not to mention that there have been break-up parties and Christmas events, usually which require baking, and also the need to do the job I have. You know, the job that actually helps me pay the bills! 🙂

It’s hard to take it easy when you have so many things to do. And always there is the desire to go to one more event in the hope of getting word out about your book. It’s this that has led to me having two book signing events this coming Friday – one at Angus and Robertson Brookside and one at Mad Hatter’s Bookshop at Manly. I think I might be pushing the envelope a bit much to do two in one day, but when it comes to book promotions, I find it hard to say no. Hopefully, I will find the final reserve of strength to get through both of them before I take a well-earned break in the week before Christmas. I’m looking forward to it, as I do, indeed, think Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year.

With that in mind, I’d like to wish all my readers and anyone reading this blog a merry Christmas. Don’t forget, books make wonderful gifts. Make an author happy and buy books for Christmas, and all God’s blessings on your and your families in the new year.

  1. Wishing you a Merry Christmas too Lynne & hoping you recover from the ‘walking pneumonia’. Would have loved to have caught up with you at the book signing at Brookside as that’s my home ground, but we will be away. It’s a good bookstore 🙂 All the best.
