As students have their reading week and a new Semester dawns, it makes me wonder how many get chance to read beyond the wonderfully accessible short to extend their commitment to a novella or novel. The whole curling up with a good book idea is not too much of an indulgence. It just needs the clocks to stop, the phones to break and social media to go away…
Snow is on the horizon, so prayers might be answered.

I shared a meal with someone this lunchtime. It was a lamb roast lunch, all but for the Yorkshire puddings, that I forgot.

There’s a month to wait but… You maybe interested to know that an extract from the beginning of my novel, ‘What If I Go?’ outlining the dangers from gangs of sexual abuse for students, is to be published online at ‘The Voices Project’ on 10th October.

The Voices Project is a non-judgemental venue for women, and also men, to express their personal stories and observations through poetry/prose to promote social change. The hope is to bring the voices of these individuals forward, providing a creative pathway leading to growth and empowerment, and in turn affecting everything within their lives. Although our main focus is on women’s literature, we do publish (and celebrate!) the voices of men, as it’s important we are all a part of the conversation and mission.
If you could direct traffic that way then abuse survivors could gain from the empathy found there. Thank-you!
