Thanks everyone!

Today I received a phone call from Head Office at Waterstone's to say that Mr. Planemaker's Flying Machine has been added to Waterstone's database of books that can be order directly from all Waterstone's bookstores.

Btw, there's a poetry competition running on the bubblegumclub website and it isn't too late to enter, so have a go -- you might win!

Thanks again for all your wonderful support!

Hi Noel,

Yes, I've started a follow-up but it's in the very early stages of writing. Please look out for a feature in the Lancashire Evening Post next Monday in the "What Women Want" section. One of the journalists, Rachel Dearden, has written a short piece about me and Mr. Planemaker's Flying Machine.

Waterstone's in Southport have also kindly agreed to stock Mr. Planemaker's Flying Machine!

Thanks again everyone!

I would like to thank Rachel Dearden and everyone at the Lancashire Evening Post in Fulwood, Preston for doing such a splendid job. Thank you!

Hi everyone,

Sorry I haven't replied sooner, but I took Audrey's hint and started to write the sequel! I've written chapter one and I've started to write chapter two -- the novel should be finished some time next year.

Btw, Mr. Planemaker's Flying Machine is in the October issue of the Lancashire Life magazine. It's on page 295 with a number of books written by Lancashire authors.

Thanks again for all your wonderful support.
