New book out soon!

Very excited that my book ‘A Life in Mouthfuls: Scottish Food and Drink Memories‘ is very nearly in my eager grasp! Final proofreading being done today, changes to be IMG_3523uploaded to Amazon and then whoopee! We’re off! In homage to my blog efforts of the last few years, I’ve named my publishing imprint ‘The Porridge Press’ – logo on the right designed by my friend Jane.

Self-publishing is a challenge and I’ve spent the last few months working on a website, buying ISBN numbers and generally embarking on steep learning curves, ever onwards and upwards! But we’re nearly there now.

In order to streamline all the online traffic, I’m moving my blog to my website – so from now on, you’ll find my stories at . I hope you’ll come and join me there; I’m really grateful to those of you who have followed ‘A Drawerful of Porridge’ over the years, and especially those of you who sent me comments. It would be really great if we could keep in touch. Not goodbye I hope, but au revoir!
