I have recently written and self published a book, I found it quite difficult in selecting a publisher, and things were not as straightforward as it first seemed. Has anybody else some knowledge for me to use as I have now finished writing my second book and would like it to be seen by a wider audience, and I am well on my way with a third manuscript.

Went to the local garden centre the other day, but couldn't believe they have started putting Xmas decorations out. Quite sad when you think that summer is not over yet. No wonder people are fed up with Xmas when starts too early!
Just watched this film, can someone please tell me what it was all about? My profile photo I is what the smaller screen looks like for most of the film... beautiful soundtrack... must get the sheet music :)
I have been watching the BBC programme World War One Remembered which focused mainly on Passchendaele and, as always, am somoved when thinking about what happened to so many brave men in that battle. My grandfather who died before I was born was gassed there, but survived and came home to live terribly incapacitated by the damage to his lungs. I hope we never forget them and that future generations continue to honour them.
Hello from North Yorkshire. Can I ask if any of you have been on holiday to Mexico in January, the Playa del Carmen area? I just want to know if it is warm then and does it get dark early in the evening then the way it does here. I am thinking of staying at one of the Riu Hotels. Are they are good as they look? Any tips or advise please.
I'm appalled at how bad the NHS problems have got. We have an amazing service that is over used and the poor staff suffer. I would love to volunteer one day a week to help out. I thought maybe there might be others who would feel the same. I am not talking about direct care, more sorting out all those time consuming annoying jobs. I've read recently of minor handyman jobs that need sorting, admin tasks that are straightforward but time consuming. Imagine if all those who retire offered just one day a week, the service would soon be back on its feet and I would hope morale would improve for staff if they feel the support is there. Is it even feasible?
