Just to let you know that my second book launch will take place on the evening of Thursday 1st March. The Lady Lord Mayors of Norwich (Pen and Sword Books) is a group biography exploring the lives, both personal and public, of the seventeen remarkable women who have worn the chain of office since 1923 when Ethel Colman started the trend! Tickets at £5 (including glass of wine!) from Jarrolds Events webpage or in store. Do come - we will have both the current Lord Mayor and Sheriff in attendance, plus eight of the surviving 'chapters' in person!

I'm happy to say I'll be returning to Suffolk's most stylish venue, Abbey Hall in Eye, on Saturday 17th March for an evening of chat and songs, some from my forthcoming CD, the inappropriately named Enough About Me.
The show is entitled From Here to Obscurity, there will be wine, cheese and sophistication - in the audience at least. I'm really looking forward to it, and will hope to see you there.
Tickets are available here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/from-here-to-obscurity-tickets-42648747552.

I am a British expat living in Moscow, Russia, and I have recently launched a monthly magazine of short stories and poems. I am currently looking for writers who would like to submit their writing and would be very happy if you could share the details with the members of East Anglian Writers. They can create a profile quickly and easily on our website, www.thefabler.ru.
Although we do not pay for every submission, we do offer the following benefits to authors:

The Yeovil Literary Prize is a competition for novels as well as for short stories and poems. There is an extra category for Writing Without Restriction. This can be anything you have

informative or quirky piece of writing that should be shared.
We accept both postal and online entries. Have a look at the website
www.yeovilprize.co.uk for details of submissions and judges.
Please come along if you can and join fellow EAW members for a convivial drink or two to see in the New Year on Monday 5 February at The Plough, St Benedicts Street, Norwich, from 5 pm until approximately 7 pm. These get-togethers are always enjoyable, so we hope to see you there.
