Marked Off – a year since the launch

It’s hard to believe but a year has passed since my book Marked Off was launched. It was a wonderful night in Hanna’s Book Shop in Rathmines and, thankfully, there have many good reviews in newspapers and literary websites since. And a few appearances on television and radio shows were really great fun. Anyway, thanks one and all for your support and encouragement, and here’s to an even better new year!

This is fun!

On the air

There is a first time for everything and yesterday I did my first radio interview. I was invited by Jacinta Matthews, host of Creative Flow on Dundalk FM, to appear on the show and we were joined by Roisin and Elaine, two members of a local book club. (Click to listen.)

We discussed my book Marked Off and writing in general.  I must say that it was a memorable and very enjoyable experience. Thank you to all concerned.

Marked Off – it’s finally here!

Well, after a long wait my book is finally here. I collected it (and a few more) from the publishers New Island Books, and it was a great thrill. Afterwards, I was asked to write a piece about the experience of writing the book for  writing.ie – an excellent website for those with an interest in books and the business of books.

And, last week, I did a video interview for ON THE SPOT

Marked Off – First TV interview

Well, time is moving on, and I will soon be busy editing Marked Off with the publishing company. After winning the prize (RTE Today Show & New Island Publishing – Get Your Book Published Competition) in March, I have been looking forward to this moment, and I am sure that it will be interesting and informative.

Marked Off will be published in February 2015.
