In two days the winner of a copy of the novel , Something Missing will be chosen from the subscribers to www.glenicewhitting,com.
If you haven’t subscribed already why not take this opportunity to get your name on the list and a copy of the book could be winging it’s way to you.
The Perfect Australian Mother’s Day Gift.
A book that deals with two women and their life-long pen-friendship will be the perfect gift for Mother’s Day on the Sunday 14th May. This book and a bunch of gorgeous flowers would brighten any mother’s heart.
Unfortunately for this competition Mother’s Day in the UK was on the 30th of March 2017.
I guess. if you are in the UK you could always keep your hard won copy for a more opportune time, maybe even 2018. I don’t know why, but the years seem to fly past at an ever increasing pace. Good heaven, soon half this year will be gone and we’ll be thinking once again of celebrating Christmas.
I’ll be drawing drawing the winner of the competition on the 2nd of May instead of the last day in April because many subscribers are from England. I must be fair to them . I will never get used to the fact that when it is Tuesday morning here it is Monday evening in London. You should see the times we have our MadeGlobal Publishing masterclasses. It’s usually aproximately 10pm Saturday night for English Authors while the Australian authors get 9am Sunday morning , And then there are authors from USA, Ireland, Belarus to name a few.
Best wishes to all who have taken the time and trouble to participate in this competition.

It is so important not to lock yourself away in an attic to produce your latest work. Writers need to be with other writers, to share ideas, successes and discuss problems.
Last Sunday I caught a bus to the station and spent an hour reading as the train rattled its way to the city. Melbourne was buzzing. Buskers performed, played unusual instruments and generally entertained. The street market was in full swing. A French style black felt hat caught my eye but at $120 was soon replaced on its stand. The Yarra river was bustling with boats ferrying happy passengers and the coffee shops were full.
At the Vic Restaurant at the Art Centre under the spire I met a group of Hysterical Melbourne Historical writers.
It was so uplifting to sit and talk about our latest projects and discuss the highs and lows of the writing life. I know Pickle to Pie fits nicely into Historical Fiction but I’m afraid Something Missing and this latest book are a little too modern. But it doesn’t matter. What matters is to be communicating with like minded people. It refreshed my soul and inspired me to jot down hasty notes in the train going home and pound the keyboard of my trusty computer late into the night.
This is my first reblog but I join many others in thanking Dr Charles French and Jennie for all their help and support over the years
A Teacher's Reflections
I posted on my blog yesterday, “A Gift of Charlotte’s Web.” As I scrolled down to print a hard copy (yes, I have a hard copy of every blog post- it’s wonderful), I looked at the three suggested readings of similar posts. One was titled, “Death and Dying and Chapter Reading.” What? I could not remember the post, as it was quite old. Well, I read it again, and it was terrific.
Then, I looked at the bottom of the post. There was only one ‘like’. One! That ‘like’ was Charles French. He has been a follower and supporter of my blog since way-back-when.
I learned everything I needed and wanted to know by following his blog. I learned how to thank people, how to follow people, and how to reblog. I learned, and Charles French kept reading and liking my blog posts. His blog has become a favorite and a gold…

IT COSTS NOTHING and you will be notified once a week when I post a blog. If you don’t want to see what marketing a book is all about at least you will get one of my quick and easy recipes to keep you going when you are up to your ears tapping away in front of the computer, jotting down your memories in an exercise book or madly marketing your latest novel and writing the next.
Here is my favourite recipe to keep body and soul together. You can even make this dish when unexpected guests arrive right on lunch time and it will still look as if it took hours to prepare. It is filling and nourishing.
Quick and Easy Salmon or Tuna Quiche
One 500gm block of cheese
3 tabs flour
1 tab dried onions
1 tin Salmon or Tuna
Half a cup of milk
In a bowl grate the block of cheddar cheese, add 3 tabs flour and 1 tab dried onion and mix together.
In a greased flan/pie dish place half the cheese mixture, spread over a drained tin of salmon, top with the rest of the cheese mixture
Mix six eggs with the milk and gently pour over the cheese/salmon mixture
Top with extra cheese squares and sprinkle with sweet paprika
Microwave for 10 mins, then bake for 30 mins in moderate oven
Serve with tossed salad and crusty bread. I find it is not only tasty but satisfying. Have fun and I hope I see you at www.glenicewhitting.com
I’ll look forward to catching up with my friends at my new wordpress website www.glenicewhitting.com.
