My new book, Alone - the thoughts and feelings of a new widow, is 24 pages revealing how I coped with - or survived - the first few months after the loss of my husband. It was first published in parts as a blog, but the reaction from other widows encouraged me to publish this book. It will strike a chord with anyone who has lost a dearly loved partner in life, and they will understand that they are not the only ones to feel as they do, and they can talk about it.
It will be available soon from Amazon, and soon after that I hope it will be published as a Kindle e-book. Meanwhile it is available on Ebay (go to Ebay and enter it in the search bar), or from me direct (the cheapest option). The price is £2.99 plus £1.60 post and packing.
I have written stories and essays or articles since I was a child, but when the pressures of being a wife and mother and running a business became too demanding, the writing almost stopped. As the children gained their independence and flew the nest I picked up my pen again, although by now it was a keyboard and computer instead of a pen I have written a few play scripts for local organisations, which have been performed, and have had some magazine articles published. I have several books of short stories with the same central characters in each, waiting to be published this year.
So, has widowhood started a new career for me?
