Hope things are going well for you (Diiarts etc) I'm still trying to find an agent, but sort of considering self-publishing for Munro. Hope you don't mind the following message,
As someone who read / commented on Munro’s Choice (aeons ago now) and who I therefore think of as one of my Authonomy friends I hope you don’t mind me messaging you.
Munro is going to China! Sadly not for book signing, but with me as I undertake a charity trek of the Great Wall on behalf of the Fostering Network - the UK’s leading charity for everyone involved in fostering.
The Great Wall runs over the tops of mountains and even where it is well-paved the going will be tough, especially for me - my normal walking extends as far as my stairs. Parts of the trek, where the wall isn’t in good condition, add the challenge of rough terrain (not to mention the scary drops!) to the incline. There is a suggested 16-week pre-trek training programme, which I will be beginning in June, building up to walking for eight hours a day on consecutive days. Given my current state of fitness (or lack of) I have already started pre-training training! (That’s where Munro comes in - I’m hoping to use the training time as thinking time for Book 2.)
My aim is to raise £2850.00. (Of which £2250 must be raised by July 22nd) If you can help please log onto www.justgiving.com where you can donate online and the money goes direct to the Fostering Network. Typing in Margaret Skea in the ‘your friend’s name’ box will take you to my page, where there are more details about the challenge.
This is a really good cause, helping disadvantaged children. Please, please help,
And please, please message me if you do, so that I can thank you.
Good luck with your own writing,
