Hi Lizzie. My novel is set in a fictional village which I named Little Twichen. Then, incredulously, I was driving down some back lanes one day and saw a signpost for a village called Twitchen! The village is (loosely) based on the village where I live, but again, fiction gives us authors licence to do anything we like - it's brilliant! I live not far from Ludlow, which is also featured in the novel but I have named it Mudlowe, as it is a fictional place although I am sure people will recognise certain places.

Oh no, I dislike January too. It sounds like you have some good things on the horizon, though, to help pull you through. And days are getting longer, slowly but surely. ❤️

Thanks, Jenn! I can feel the optimism flowing and the fact that the days are slowly stretching out again means that Spring is not too far away. Hooray! 🙌

That’s very kind of you, Maureen. Thank you 🙏 I can’t quite believe it sometimes but like you said, once I hold the books in my hands I will know that it’s real. I cannot wait!

That's very exciting – I grew up there! Which village is your novel set in? My novel is also set in Shropshire, but my agent didn't take it – and then it's difficult to send it to other people!! But great news for yours!

Ah, Shropshire. I have relatives that farm in Clun, although I haven't seen to Salop for many years. I am agog for your book to come out!
