Great news

I am having my first novel 'Figs,Vines and Roses' an eread by Joy M. Lilley shown on the authors listings at the London International Book fair 2015. This is so exciting. Another piece of good news is that I have secured a Traditional publisher for my 2nd novel 'The Liberty Bodice.'

The Second Eye

No it's not the title of my latest book, but the left eye cataract operation. Not quite so good as the first, I should have asked for another anaesthetic eye drop. This of course is our prerogative as a patient. When working as a nurse in the colposcopy unit. I'm always amazed at how little people who have agreed to have the procedure don't ask for more anaesthetic, or stop the process and ask for a general one instead. Perhaps that's down to the British stiff upper lip. Good news is that the effect is immediate and how amazing is that!

Good evening,

Auntie Peggy is getting along quite well. Now I must share the difficulty I am having in finding a traditional publisher. All the tales of how hard it is are true, believe me. There are numerous amounts of Vanity press after my book, with stories of how good it is to spend between £500-- and £5000 with them. At times it makes you feel quite downhearted. But I shall continue to try. If there are publishers out there who happen to read this,do get in touch.
