Zoom launch event for 'Immortal' on Tuesday

"O friends, not those tones!" That particular dog has had its day: soon a new day will dawn. Congratulations to our friends over the Pond for electing President Biden and Vice-President Harris! I've been out in the park this morning and everyone is smiling, despite lockdown. America's big moment can bring hope to us all: change is possible. 


Immortal - Jessica Duchen Book Launch

All the book events I had lined up for November have had to be cancelled/postponed due to the new lockdown (details in the sidebar, which I'll update as necessary). So we're having an online celebration instead. It's on Tuesday 10 November at 6pm UK time for round about an hour, and there'll be an interview, a reading, Q&A and hopefully even some music. If you'd like to join in, please register here to receive an email containing the Zoom link, and then just show up in cyberspace with a glass of something or a cuppa or whatever. We will do our best to make it as festive as possible! Hope to see you there.

How to succeed as a writer in tough times

Huge thanks to the wonderful Joanna Pieters and her inspirational podcast initiative The Creative Life Show: she probes the workings of creativity with her guests, from all walks of creative living, so that we can all learn from them and find new ideas to take our own lives forward.

She asked me for this interview about life as a writer in, er, challenging times. In it you'll learn why creativity is about pragmatism, versatility, practicality, relationship building, pushing yourself, anxiety management, plumbing and an awful lot of tea. I hope you enjoy it!

Here it is on The Creative Life Show site:
