"The Q Affaire" Newsletter ~ The Days Just Fly By! - Issue #5

The days of Spring are flying by, according to my Q clock, and a lot of the hard work on “The Q Affaire” is now done. So, it’s back to the garden, reading for pleasure, doing a bit of tarot for fun, and as always, the blog. I’m looking forward to getting out an about, to do more painting in the nice weather. Hopefully I’ll get on a roll with painting, the way I did last year. Roll on Summer'cos I’m so ready.

This was a tricky divil of a painting to photograph. I ended up taking photos of details, as well, since I couldn't get a sharp enough image without shine from the varnish. https://t.co/NkQQd3mgLd

I think I like being described as “Hot” by Amazon, and I’m pretty sure Q loves it, even if they got my age wrong, but at least there’s some advertising you get for free. By some, I mean, very little, of course, and I’ve had to throw a couple of quid at a few platforms to make folks aware of the book. There’s a lot of competition out there, and only seconds for someone to see your book. I’m glad now that I did the cover design myself, as my cover stands out pretty well in the listings, with the big Q in red shouting for attention, among the variety of other books listed. Of course, you just know I’m gonna do an excited video about getting an author’s copy of it from Amazon, any day now. I can’t wait, but will have to. Q’s Goodreads review was more than lukewarm, too, and described the book in glowing terms, although he’s cooled his attitude to me quite a bit since seeing this week’s blogpost I put up. Oh well.

I’m looking forward to serialising “The Q Affaire” on my podcasts. I think the book will read very well, and I’m not shy about doing this sorta thing (as you know), so I’ll be doing a few chapters per week, soon, with the premiere on my Donna Emerald YouTube channel first. I hope I don’t get butter, tea or jam on the margins, as I likes a cuppa cha when I’m reading. That’s probably better with just the audio, in the final version. I never was a pretty eater. Just as well I got grace an’ style, in other walks of life.

@TheQAffaire I'm showing up in the listings. Goodie goodie. In good company too. I like penguins. https://t.co/dz7jMQ5fGi
