Reflexology and Pink Champagne

Hey, a good day at work today. In the morning, we had the Health Centre Christmas party (which has to be better than doing work!), and the boss sent us a fun Christmas game on the computer, so there was a valid excuse to do no work. Must be the new management approach - and I'm all for it of course. At lunch, I had my regular reflexology session, which was pure bliss - so much so that I dozed off three times and woke myself up by snoring. Can't have been pleasant for the poor therapist ...

This afternoon, I spent minuting a Board meeting for a new project - and everyone was in jolly mood. Even the Professor was joking. And he was early - ye gods! I had to go to rustle up some more water though - and, as the catering staff had all gone home, all I could find to put it in was a teapot. Well, I like to convey a professional image to the powers that be. If only I could work out how.

And some lovely news on the novel front - Sue on Myspace (http://www.myspace.com/suehaywood) has just finished reading "Pink Champagne and Apple Juice", has thoroughly enjoyed it, and hopes to do a full review for her website/blog (http://www.teafriendsandchocolate.com/sue/). That's made my day, Sue - so thank you very much! I'm so glad you liked it.

Tonight, I'm hoping to send off some more writing competition entries (I've been sensible and bought a sheet of large-letter stamps instead of queueing for years at the PO), which I started yesterday evening. Apart from that, a quiet evening - bliss.

Today's nice things:

1. Reflexology
2. Sue's review
3. A quiet evening - again.

Anne, some time you'll have to tell me how to make My Space work sensibly! Well done - Pink Champers deserves good reviews!

You need to invite contacts you like the look of, Irene - do a browse in the age range/sex you think your book will appeal to, check if they do a lot of reading or not, and build up your marketing network that way. Also copy your blog into the myspace blog slot and you'll get more readers that way. Good luck.
