Listen here!

The best thing is going to happen. From 1 January 2019 it will be possible to listen to The Saturday Girls through your very own headphones. The Saturday Girls is now available as an audio book. It’s unabridged so it’s 11 hours long. But think of it – a long car journey, an overnight flight, taking down the Christmas decorations, all those tasks that you dread – all will be so much easier and, let’s face it, more enjoyable, if you can step back into the Sixties, the music, the milkshakes, the money (all in pounds, shillings and pence) with a dash of danger, dancing and delicious Angel cake. Or if you’re just sitting at home, by the fire, maybe sewing on a button, or changing a flat tyre, think of the pleasure of a listening to a good story as you work.

Order it from the library or – hey, splash out on your own copy!

It is of course, still available in paperback.

 

Behind the Beehive


Beehive shoot 3

I’m always thinking about the cover of the book and a couple of weeks ago I asked a couple of young Yorkshire gals what they felt about the current proposal.

And they said – sweetly and without malice – that it needed more beehive so that people who weren’t old would understand the title.

A good beehive is hard to find – but a shop in Kings Lynn does a mean attempt. Two were sent for, one blonde, one brunette. They lay on the stool in the kitchen like small, self sufficient kittens.

And then niece Billie came round and the shoot began.

Snacks were provided – grapes and cherries – and music to fit the mood was on the iPlayer  – Mel Torme ‘Comin’Home’.

Chris will work on the pictures over the weekend and the results will be in soon!
