Cup Winner

I've won another cup.

O.k. it's a coffee mug really. This is me looking smug with my mug.

Those nice people at Words with Jam have sent me this prize for being one of the winners in their October Comp Corner.

Other news:

I found out last week that my latest story for Take a Break was not wanted for Fiction Feast. It had already been published in their Autumn Special. A quick dash down to the Co-op and I got myself a copy. I was shocked to find that the photo they have used looks a lot like me. Creepy.

Also last week I managed to track down a copy of The Weekly News from last November which had one of my stories in it. First time I'd seen it.

Waiting to receive the manuscripts for another competition I've got to judge. A ghost story set in or around Nottingham. Looking forward to some scary reads.

Exceedingly Good


 to Carol at Carol's Corner for awarding me the Super Sweet Blogging Award. To accept it I have to answer the following questions:

1.Cookies or cake?
     Definitely cake. Isn't cookie an American word?
2.Chocolate or vanilla?
     Yes please.
3.What is your favourite sweet treat?
     Bread and butter pudding just like my Aunty Helen used to make.
     Even better than cake.
4.When do you crave sweet things most?
     When I'm awake.
5.If you had a sweet nickname what would it be?
     Mr Kipling.

I'm wheeling the sweet trolley across to Helen and Paula. If they're on a cyber-diet or don't fancy cyber-crumbs in the keyboard that's fine. If you do it, remember to copy the picture of cakes above.

PS Have you checked out Ace Of Cakes on Really Freeview 17?

While I'm posting stuff I thought I'd do a bit of bragging:
I have a story in A Year With Yours 2013 available on Amazon.

People's Friend seem keen on another story of mine. They've already asked for two lots of edits. Apparently it's nearly there.

Take a Break have asked to buy another story for Fiction Feast.

As the end of the year approaches things are beginning to look up a little.
