This week Seeking The Dark the first novel I wrote has won a second award. The Chill with a Book Readers’ Award which was such a lovely surprise.

This morning I was amazed to find my new novel The Phoenix Hour had climb up an Amazon chart to no: 10 in one of the Amazon Charts and no: 40 in another was lovely to see, especially as it has been launched yet. I’m hoping it might reach number 1 but I sure it will soon tumble down.

This morning I had a trip to the optician because for the last week or so I have been worrying about a horseshoe shaped floater in my right eye. At first, I thought my glasses needed cleaning and then when I was in the garden it was like I had a fly dancing in front of my face. Once I realised it was something within the eye, I started to panic and thought I better get it checked out.

I felt quite depressed to think I was have problems with my sight, especially now my writing and art is taking off. After I had two tests done on my eyes, I’ve been told what has happened, and that the retina is still intact. As our eyes ages tiny strands of the vitreous ( the gel-like fluid in the eyeball) breaks away as it shrinks. This is normal as we ages and after a few months the brain will not notice the floater. I can’t wait for that to happen, but at least I know my eyes are as healthy as they can be.

Now I can relax and focus on my art and writing, thank goodness.

Have a lovely weekend.
