Happy New Year = Happy New Blog Design!!!


And welcome to the new blog design!

In harmony with my resolutions to live in the moment and step outside my comfort zone, this blog design change was very much spur of the moment! I had looked at my old design a couple of times and though it might be time for a change, but you know how it is when you have something you're very comfortable in, that might have outlived it's freshness but that somehow feels a part of you now, so you don't want to let it go...

I decided to do something new to mark this very first day of 2013!

Hope you like it!

You never know what is around the corner, do you?

Just after midnight I heard someone is interested in publishing my novel, Hidden! Nothing is official yet, so I shouldn't get too far ahead of myself, but just hearing someone is interested is enough to make my heart sing! Possibly, some time this year, you may be able to buy a copy of Hidden for the young person in your life - or for yourself, though it's a YA novel for younger YA readers...

I'm trying to keep a lid on it, but as posting it on my blog will probably suggest, I'm not really succeeding very well!

Not a bad start to 2013, I must say!

Thanks guys, what is it they say, a change is like a holiday? I had fun playing around in Photoshop Elements 9 (been a while and it's not like Photoshop, in many ways, so was a bit of a learning curve). The act of impulse ended up taking about five hours to complete, hahaha, that's one way to get through the school holidays - and of course, I took the opportunity to show Erik around PSE9 while I was at it. He might get some use out those skills in high school.

Good Job!
