I’m working two jobs, my garden is a weedy mess, in a week it is the school holidays, I have nearly 100 essays to grade, I’m training to teach yoga, lately I only get to see my husband at bedtime…
…golly gee, I think I might publish a book.
While I’m at it, why don’t I start a new blog?
Some of you might say ‘why start a blog right now, Helen?’ and cynically think that it is just to publicise the book, that it is all about self-interest and the blowing of one’s own trumpet…
You’d be right.
The book is coming out with a wonderful small press, Seraph. When you publish with a small press you are accepting that there is little marketing budget and everything you can do to promote your own book is going to help a lot.
Welcome to my self-promoting soap-box.

Helen – The book’s looking good – looking forward to it. I like that it’s called The Comforter and you only see your husband at bedtime!
Hooray for little presses, The Comforter, and your blog (and for yoga, patient husbands, and weedy gardens always waiting for us)
Yuss, little presses are the best presses…..and there are always, always weeds, aren’t there?
So so so so so so SO happy to find you blogging again! And what wonderful news to know a book is forthcoming! Sorry to hear about the overwhelming “To-do” list, and hope that you continue to do the things that make you feel good.
(gleefully bookmarking your new blog!)
🙂 Thanks for your lovely words! So nice to hear people are reading. 🙂
