Would you like to interview me, or have me do a guest post on your blog? I'm usually happy to do this (time permitting) Please email me to discuss it and include a link to your blog.

If you know of, or wish to promote, any free to enter writing contests, competitions with writing related or book prizes, or publishing opportunities, I'd love to hear about them. You can either add them as a comment to one of my posts, or email me the details. I'll try to mention them (and you) in one of my posts. (If you'd like to promote a contest that carries a fee then you may add details as a comment to a recent post, but I won't post up those details in a new post.)

Please be aware that I post details of competitions and writing opportunities simply because I hope they'll be of interest to my blog readers. I'm not endorsing any competition or company mentioned and I don't undertake to investigate any of them.

I do not pay for any contributions to my blog nor for advertising.

  1. Where do I get your book please mam?

  2. They're available from Amazon, Kracken. You're in the US aren't you?

  3. If you're interested in the short story collection you're best of downloading it from smashwords as it's free there.

  4. Hi Patsy, I hope you're busy writing!!! :)

    Thought you might be interested in this - an online writing pal has just notified me of this free comp which offers a full version of Microsoft Office for simply writing a photo caption!


  5. Oh no! I hadn't read through the t&cs, Patsy - this is for US and Canada-based residents only because of the license :( Or do you have followers from there who might be interested? I'd still enter for the Stephen King 'On Writing' book and Mitch's book of short stories, but I have a copy of both already!

    Sorry - this has taught me a lesson...I'm too trigger-happy.

  6. Thanks, Marion. I do have US followers so it might be of interest to them.

  7. Oh good! :) But I'll be more careful in future.

  8. Hi Patsy, I'm going to write a blog post showing my latest flowers in the garden, and would like to mention up the garden path. Would you like to answer a couple of questions? If so, I'll pop them on there as well.

    If not, I'll mention the book anyway. It's fab, lovely stories.

  9. Hello Patsy,

    I've just finished re-re-reading A Spot of Appreciation in WW fiction special 2009 (not that I'm a hoarder, you understand!). Thoroughly enjoyed it - thank you.


    1. Glad you liked it! (Sorry, I missed seeing your post)


Thanks so much for commenting!
