The Government has placed a National Lockdown on the country in its aim to stem Coronavirus (Covid-19). This means we won’t be able to attend the markets until after Easter 2021.
We’ve made many good friends at the markets, who always come and chat when passing. We’ve also made some very good contacts who are willing to help promote the booklet. Some recommendations cannot be followed up as they’re closed with lockdown.
Until then I am finishing a crime novel, ‘Murder Most Foul’, in readiness to be be brought before agents and publishers. There is also a non-fiction book about the Pilgrim Fathers nearing completion.
