Pictures depicting each island of The Bahamas have been on show in Rawson Square, downtown Nassau, Bahamas, for the 49th anniversary of The Bahamas' Independence July 10th, 2022. Also visible in the middle rear of the square is a statue of the late Sir Milo Butler GCMG, GCVO, who was the first Bahamian Governor General (1973 to 1979).

NASSAU BAHAMAS TROLLEY TOURS?

MARGARITAVILLE BEACH RESORT,
NASSAU, BAHAMAS

This is something new in Nassau, Bahamas. Haven't seen these trolleys here before. I think it might be Trident Pedal Tours.

THE PASSING OF BAHAMIAN PUBLISHED AUTHOR VERA CHASE



I was shocked and saddened to hear that published author and President of The Commonwealth Writers of The Bahamas Vera Chase had passed away. Vera and I shared our love of writing and she was always so supportive and encouraging to me.

She accomplished much in her lifetime. I just hope and pray that others will fulfill the dreams that she still had.

She worked hard at trying to establish a place here in Nassau where Family Island Junior Writers could stay when they came to Nassau and she also tried to get monetary and other support for her Pompey Project (a movie about "Pompey: A Slave’s Revolt (1830)").

Deepest condolences to Vera's husband and family.

BARCODES ON AMAZON'S PAPERBACK COVERS

 


Above is an example of a barcode from the back cover of my novel "Dangerous Devotion". The barcode is at the bottom right.

When I uploaded a new replacement paperback cover on Amazon recently there was a section to tick a box if I already had a barcode; otherwise leave it blank and they would add one. I always get confused about this, so I messaged Amazon. I was told if you do not have a barcode the option does not have to be checked as they would add one.

Well, I was still confused, because my existing paperback cover did have a barcode, but the new cover I was uploading didn't! Amazon told me yes, it would need a barcode and that "No matter how many times you make changes we will need to add a barcode."

I hope this helps those of you who may have been confused too!

THE TINY LIBRARY!

 

This is the little "library" beside the swimming pool where we now live. It's hidden in a nook in the wall behind two small doors that meet in the middle.


The Swimming Pool at our new residence

Exploring, I had pushed on the narrow doors and they opened to reveal shelves stacked with books. I wondered about the history of these books, where they had been, who might have read them and who had placed them there over the years........!
