Thank you for all your support and encouragement

Thank you to all of you who read my blog and like or leave comments on posts. Your support and encouragement has lifted me up and helped to keep me going as a writer. And often people I know who read my blog mention how much they enjoyed a recent post. This makes it all worthwhile for me.

And many thanks to those who’ve started following this blog in recent weeks.  Recently, I was touched by these words noted on Facebook by a fellow-writer whose blog I follow:

For those like me who get a bit down actually, a lot down, depressed, despairing etc) sometimes things pop up that make things a whole lot better. As an author, reviews matter and realising that a reader not only enjoyed your book, but *got* what it’s truly about, is a magical moment.
I got one such review today that has given me the warm fuzzies in abundance(Vivienne Tuffnell)

This is certainly how I feel when a new positive review appears on my Amazon page, and it’s also how I feel when I suddenly get new followers, or a thoughtful comment on my blog. As a writer, this tells me that people out there are responding to me, and to what I write.

Please do let me know if there’s anything you’d like to see me blog about, too! I’ll do my best to post on that subject.

Meanwhile, may I wish you all a happy and peaceful Christmas and New Year.
