Today (April 1st) I set up my card reader so I can now take card payments. This is something I have been thinking about for a while. I am glad I waited because the cost of the machines has reduced a lot (the only thing that has!)
I went to the Bucket and Spade café in Dymchurch where they sell my books. Someone had left a note for me, asking me to get in touch. That was a lovely surprise!
In my writing, I am still in Georgian times (1762). My character Harry has been having a rough time recently and he is drinking too much brandy in the Ship Inn. His ability to make the right choices is becoming impaired...
In the evening, I went to SWAN (South Willesborough and Newtown) WI group. I had tweaked my author talk to include more of the Ashford scenes which I have in my Dungeness series of novels. How fantastic to be in Newtown because this is where Alice and Albert go to view a house (Secrets of the Shingle). The WI group were welcoming as always and the new card reader worked!
