New land…

It’s been months since I joined Instagram. Yesterday, after months of trial, getting cross, error, and giving up, I finally worked out how to get pics onto my account. You have to use your mobile phone. For someone hopelessly devoted to larger machines –  desktop or laptop or even netbook; I’m not fussy – this was an entirely new concept and I’m not sure how I’ll cope there, but that’s a story for the future. For the moment, you can see my page HERE. (It won’t take you long; I’ve only posted four pics so far, including my lantern on the balcony.) We’ll see how I get on over the next few months.

Winter has arrived in N.E. Switzerland and in a lot of other places too, including my website (you may only see it on a desktop pc, but it’s snowing very gently here – I love it! Wish it was only snowing very gently outside, too…) Over the next few weeks we’ll be getting the site organised for next year, so blog posts will be a touch infrequent for the rest of 2017, tho’ I’m planning a ‘Swiss Christmas’ one in a week or two.

Meantime, my books have various promotions and special offers coming up around Christmas, so watch out for some bargains. Most importantly, The Saturday Secret has had its last proper deal as a charity book, and I have sent a Fr.300.- donation to Doctors without Borders.

Donation sent in December 2017.

This makes a total of Fr.500.- altogether – slightly more than it has brought in so far, but I’m confident that by the time its year is up in February, we’ll have reached the magic number.

The next big thing in my writing life will be in January – the cover reveal for A Lake in Switzerland. And I’m having a pen name – sort of – for my feel-good books. As they say, watch this space…

I’ll leave you with some picture-perfect Swiss snow. If you’ve never travelled by ski-lift, this is what it looks like, and no, I didn’t take it…

    They don’t make it easy, do they? but I find Google images a good place to find pictures for Instagram…

    I admire people who dare to use their phones on drag lifts. I’m convinced I’ll drop mine. I’m a bit behind the ball on instagram but slowly catching up

    I love the snow effect, Linda (especially being here in Florida. Warm Christmases? Ugh.). And I can see the effect because, like you, I like BIG machines with BIG screens and am pretty useless with our Android. Congratulations on all the money you’ve raised for Doctors Without Borders – and I’m very excited to know more about your new writing direction and pen name! I will certainly keep watching this space.

      Send some Florida warmth in this direction, please – we have masses of snow, and the wind is ‘wuthering’ in the wood by my flat as I type. The only consolation is, the Swiss are pretty good at keeping the roads etc clear – but it’s cold comfort, sometimes!
