Author’s Recognition Award

Church Cove

I am not yet a published author of books. I hope to be. When this award nomination cropped up, courtesy of Sheree of the blog View From the Back, I thought, why not. It would push me to write about this project I have been working on for the last five years. What masterpiece has she been writing for that many years, you might cackle. And really, I could not take offence — this routine of writing and re-writing is a scourge. I have not known when to stop, somewhat like a dervish who abandons himself to his rhythm of whirling and looks for all the world as if he might never stop, then drop like a consumed fly at some point . More about the project in a few ticks, but to begin with, do hop over to Sheree’s blog for a peek into the world of an avid cyclist with a cracking sense of humour.

About the Creator of the Award

Beverley at Becoming the Oil and the Wine Blog. I popped over to her blog and found that she has a compelling story to tell. Her idea behind creating this award was to support fellow bloggers who have written and published books or who are in the process of writing a book. You are free to write as much as you’d like about your book and/or the reasons why you decided to write one.

About my Book

As I mentioned already, I am in the throes of seeking an agent — and simultaneously in the process of writing the proposal for the book. Nobody told me that writing the book would be the easier bit.

The book is about my dippy-dotty travels through Cornwall (in the UK), complete with hand-drawn sketches that are as imperfect as I am as a person. Featured as a logo for this post, is one of the sketches from the book featuring the village of Church Cove in the Lizard Peninsula. I wish I could tell you that this is the one book you need to own when it comes out, but that would be an utter untruth. I would however appreciate it immensely if you did. And that is as much as I can bring myself to talk about my labour of love.

The great affair in my life is to travel. I count myself immensely fortunate that my partner shares this passion. We are a team that likes to spend time planning and plotting out places to go. Destination check, flights check, accommodation check, cheesy grins check. Off we go.

    1. Hello Beverly, how lovely of you to drop by. I hope to read more of your posts. Your story drew me. I am working on getting the book there and I will do a post when I have news. Thank you for your kind words and appreciation. Also, your award paved the way for me to talk about it and that is kind of difficult for me. Cheers!

  1. You’re a fantastic writer and best of luck with getting the book published. With the sketches included , you could be the Wainwright of Cornwall, with less focus on walking, I suspect.

  2. Writing a book now? Kya baat hai. πŸ™πŸ»
    Much patience in searching for an agent. They live in a dying industry, and bilkul, do not realize it. (With a Z or an S? It’s like offenCe and offense) πŸ˜‰
    There must be some new modern agents… If you find one, do tell?
    Jaldi milenge.
