Fun Friday

Well, third try, lucky. For some reason server timed out - planned maintenance /upgrading at talktalk perhaps?
So Fun Friday it is. It has been a good and encouraging  week.
Firstly, I had an e-mail from San Francisco with a very complimentary comment about my new BLOG. http://lookville.com Take a look. It is fashion related.
Secondly, I had an e-mail from Dana in Texas, she is The Savvy Book Marketer, asking for permission to use my latest profile photo in an article she was writing about the use of photos in social networking. http://tinyurl.com/3xkvd9l  So chuffed!
Next I had a message from my FB friend and fellow author Paula Lingard to contact Kevin at Petrolheads Cafe Milk Bar - A548 Flint off the A55 - about a book signing event. As usual I got talking about 'my other hat'  and the Gold Wing Owner's Club of Great Britain(GWOCGB) and our North Wales Wings. I had heard about the launch of Petrolheads in my capacity of Rep for NWW. I did say my other hat didn't I? Well they support the Wales Air Ambulance as we do. Anyway, the upshot is that North Wales Wings (GWOCGB) have are very welcome at Petrolheads ( it is for bikers and car-ers alike). Kevin waxed lyrical about the freshly prepared Sunday Roast which they do at a bargain price and exhorted us to come and try it. A good meeting place/ stopping point when out on runs. http://tinyurl.com/373977t
Well to get back to the point of the BLOG, we discussed a book signing for Just Us Two:Ned and Rosie's GoldWing Discovery etc, so watch this space. Then I had an e-mail from a new Gold Winger in the area. After answering this, it was time to make sure I was spruced up enough to go and meet friends for lunch.
Lunch at the Golden Lion, Rossett www.thegoldenlionrossett.co.uk was delicious as usual. I had salmon on a bed of crushed potatoes and creamy leeks. the I was really naughty and had a cold pressed Cheescake with Baileys. So much so, that the rest of the afternoon  alls for a chill out and delving into one of my latest library books.Developing marketing materials can wait. Oh! and I forgot, my printer went on the blink last night. the only fly in the ointment. Message reads: 'Internal components past service date' or some such thing. It is all the same though... I see a new printer on the horizon, and I have just bought new ink cartridges...Oh well! Looking to have a slim Net book cover from www.kinchprint.com but need to check sizes as mine might be a bit bigger than the latest ones on sale. Hope it fits as I have done a lovely design with sunflowers...
Lastly, I have had a message from an on-line bookshop in India ( Friend of Books http://tinyurl.com/22u79rk) which is listing Just Us Two in their catalogue.
I have added their link to www.discover-rosalie.com/WheretoBuy.
So... off now to delve into a good book.
Have a lovely weekend,
