Before plunging back into the dark world of Berlin in the 1950s to finish my November novel ‘A Quest in Berlin’, I decided to work on something a bit lighter, and ‘Pitkirtly on Tour’, now published on Amazon and Smashwords (and eventually destined to reach Kobo, iBooks, B&N and so on), is the result. It’s even lighter and less substantial than the average Pitkirtly story, I suppose, but somehow this was what I needed to see me through this time of year and to encourage me to keep on writing even when I didn’t particularly feel like it.
A foggy day in old Edinburgh town (the old Corstorphine branch railway, now a cycle path)
It wasn’t exactly a complete surprise that I didn’t feel so much like writing after my operation but what was hard to accept was that it took so much energy just to sit at the computer and type! And that was even after I managed to evict the cat from my chair.
Anyway, I hope you will be amused by ‘Pitkirtly on Tour’.I don’t suppose it will be long before I feel like starting on a longer Pitkirtly novel. In fact I had an idea for a scenario for the next one quite a few months ago, as often happens when I need to work on something completely different, but I will have to mull over the actual plot a bit more before setting pen to paper or fingers to keyboard.
Thank you very much to anyone who has already bought a copy.
