Summer 2015 has been a funny one here in the top right-hand corner of Switzerland. After the rainiest June ever, we had the hottest July for 150 years, and up until yesterday this month has been equally hot – alas, all good things come to an end. Today I am wearing socks.

The Attic Room has been out for three and a half weeks now and is doing well. I was really happy on the 11th August to see my third book hit number 267, and today it’s still in the top ten in all three of its categories, which is so much more than I ever expected. Royalties gained this far have now exceeded my costs for all editing, formatting and the book cover, so it’s so far, so good for the experiment ‘self-publishing’.

Down through the trees to the path first of all,

  1. I’ve been enjoying the cooler weather here too — from a bit north of you in Germany. Nice pictures! You just inspired me to take a break and go out.


  2. Ah, Linda. Beautiful pictures. I’ll be in Switzerland in winter once again. First of all, the flights are more reasonable and secondly, I have enough sun and warmth right here. So for me, the winter and its holidays are more enjoyable in Switzerland than in sunny California. This time, we’ll have to get together for sure. I’m spending November, December, and January there. Looking forward to the Gluehwein!

    If I lived with all those beautiful trees, I wouldn’t need a holiday!

    Congrats on success of The Attic Room (I loved it!).

    I’m facing the return from Spain (hot and sunny) to Glasgow (not hot, and what is this thing you call sun?). Hope you have a wonderful holiday.

      Gosh, thanks Barb – you’re on my list of people to ask if they want a copy! I’ll buy you a coffee sometime instead. It’s holidays at home, but they’re often the most relaxing kind. Loved all your Spain blogs 🙂
