I’m still here! Up to my neck in revisions, but here. And I’m pleased with how the book is shaping up. Thankfully much of the work now is a matter of fine-tuning. It never fails to amaze me how a single sentence can change the balance of a scene.
What other news do I have? There’s a Goodreads giveaway of an advance copy of CHANTRESS (you can check that out here). A big blog tour for the book is coming up in May.
But it’s not all-book-all-the-time here (even if it sometimes feels that way). As proof, I’m sharing some photos I took on last month of our local farmers’ market, inspired by Lorrainemt’s great post over at A Fork in the Road about her farmers’ market in Oregon:
Goodies from The Old Farmhouse Bakery
Lardy Cake – an Oxfordshire specialty that is melt-in-your mouth delicious. As the sign in a local bakery once said, “Yes, it IS” (meaning that yes, it really is made with lard!).
Our local drinks man, who supplies us with homemade cherry wine and pear juice.
One of several farm shops at the market. You can also buy locally raised trout and venison.
One of the lovely people who runs Sufi Spice. They make superb Indian food with as many local ingredients as possible
Cotswold honey and beeswax
The flower stand is always a favorite stop.
Our market has bit of everything, including goose eggs!
