Just a quickie

I'm hosting Elizabeth Seckman on her Healing Summer blog tour tomorrow - she's going to tell us all about her perfect summer's day!



I'm really excited to have been nominated for Best Writing and/or Inspirational Blog on Misha Gericke's My First Book blog, alongside some fabulous bloggers, and some bloggers I've never met before. There are four categories to vote in - have you been over there yet? Have you discovered some new bloggers too?



I have a bit of a secret... I have another blog. I haven't linked it up to my Blogger profile because I don't want people to get confused - it's just a bit of fun for me, really - but I thought I'd give myself a little shout out. It's called The Gym Instructor and it's all about fitness and health! I set it up a year ago, and I've only just made the effort to start blogging on it regularly. It's an experiment in writing articles, mostly, and I'd appreciate you popping over and giving me some feedback - either from a content or technical article-writing point of view. At the moment I have a guest post on there by Jade Varden at the moment, but I'm planning the next post to be added in the next couple of days.


Have you got any news to share?

  1. Congrats on your nomination and good luck with the Gym blog. Congrats, to be honest I can barely handle one blog, let alone two. You are a force of nature Annalisa :)>

    1. I can barely handle two either - it's been going for 12 months and I've just put up my 16th post. But thanks anyway :-)

  3. I'm hoping that clicking the link to your new blog counts as today's exercise!

    Other than releasing my latest romance, A Year and a Day, I don't have any news. ;-)

    1. Lol, kind of exercise, I guess. Thanks for following the other blog.

      A book release is the biggest news, you don't need anything else!

  4. Congrats on the nomination! So cool! And your other blog sounds like something I might need- after I get off bedrest and give birth to my third baby, that is:)

  6. congrats on the award. And smart idea to keep the blogs separate. It drives me nuts when I comment back and the blogger has five blogs, and I have to go through each one to figure out which is the most recent and which is the one I want to comment on.

    My news is I'm starting to hang out in my edit cave today.

    1. It's just a nomination at the moment, Stina, but thanks :-)

      Yes, that's exactly why I didn;t link the blogs - I find it awkward too.

      Have fun editing!

    1. It's going to take a little while for me to settle down in my other blog - at work people ask a question and I answer it (sometimes in great depth) - on a blog I have to decide. There's so much I don't know where to start.

  10. Congratulations on your nomination-- well deserved.

    I'm glad to know about the other blog and am going to head over. I started another blog too, like you, to practice and play with different kinds of writing. Can't wait to check out this new one of yours-- sounds right up my interest alley.

  11. Congrats on the nomination. I'll check out your other blog, I could probably do with some health and fitness as my news is I'm suffering with a chesty cough and it's really getting me down!

    1. Thanks Suzanne, and thanks for the follow on the other blog. I had that chesty thing a couple of weeks ago - the secret is not to do too much too soon. In the case of this bug, too much is leaving the house. Take care :-)

  14. I figured out a long time ago that I love to eat, so I have to move. Writing has been the anti-exerciser, so this will be a wonderful, get it together Liz place that I need! Thanks for the motivation and the help!

    1. The reason I started working out was because I love chocolate! All the rest - including enjoyment - happened a little bit later! :-)
