NOSTALGIC SCOTTISH MEMORIES



“A little way out of Aberfoyle we found the lodge on the Craigenveoch estate where my mother and family had lived. On warm, summer evenings she, Jack and Ray leaned out of their bedroom windows, watching their parents sing along with friends to gramophone music as they rowed across Loch Ard. The loch was described by Sir Walter Scott as a ‘beautiful sheet of water … a spacious mirror’. The main house at Craigenveoch, where my grandfather had worked as gardener, still stood proud and well cared for. My mother told us that the house, land, lodge, and two staff apartments over the garage, sold for a little over £3,000 in 1939.” [Excerpt from The Scottish Connection: A Journey Back – Mini-memoir]

In this nostalgic, illustrated mini-memoir I share memories of my 1978 journey back to Scotland with my mother and young sons, to revisit our Scottish roots. “The Scottish Connection” contains a wealth of information - Scottish ancestry, historical facts, genealogy, comparable 1978 prices, geographical descriptions, personal anecdotes, nostalgia and precious old photos. Available to download from Amazon as an e-book for only $2.99 and also in paperback:

WHAT TO DO WITH OLD MANUSCRIPTS!


MANUSCRIPT FOR ROMANTIC SUSPENSE NOVEL
"LOVE AT SUNSET" BY FAY KNOWLES
INSIDE MANUSCRIPT FOR "LOVE AT SUNSET"

What do YOU do with your old manuscripts after your work has been published?! I’ve been doing a lot of purging and was going to throw away my manuscript for my romantic suspense novel “Love at Sunset”, because after all, it’s published and I have hard copies of the actual book! However, son Gavin said: “Oh no, you should keep it, as you never know, a movie producer might contact you about the book and want you to send them the original manuscript!” Here it is above, all 325 double-spaced typed pages of it, showing a bit of the content! This converted to 360 pages in the regular print published book.

And here’s a short description: “Facing imminent danger and fierce opposition to love a second time around, Violet and Gordon seek a new life in Scotland, thousands of miles away from where they live in Nassau, Bahamas, but trouble soon catches up with them. The couple finds themselves in and out of one adventure after another! In the meantime, an unscrupulous attorney appears on the scene back home, along with a crooked realtor. What they do and the extent they would go to leads to a shocking ending. Greed, jealousy, family secrets and bitter grudges worm their way throughout this story!”

“Love at Sunset: A Romantic Suspense” set in The Bahamas and Scotland, with scenes in Fort Lauderdale, New York, London and Devon, is available on Amazon as an e-book and in paperback (regular and large print):

EXCITING NEW LUCILLE PFIFFER MYSTERY SERIES!




Check out page 10 of this past weekend’s Tribune Weekend supplement and read my article about bestselling Bahamian author Tanya R. Taylor's exciting new Lucille Pfiffer mystery series - “A New Cosy Mystery with a Four-legged Heroine”!

“Lucille Pfiffer sees, but not with her eyes. She lives with her beloved dog Vanilla (‘Nilla’ for short) in a cozy neighborhood that is quite ‘active’ due to what occurred in the distant past. Though totally blind, she plays an integral role in helping to solve pressing and puzzling mysteries, one right after the other, which, without her, might remain unsolved. The question is: How can she do any of that with such a handicap?”




BLIND SIGHT, the first book in the series, will be released July 28th and is available now on Amazon for pre-order at a special price. The count down is on! Only FOUR days left to pre-order at a special pre-order price.





BLIND ESCAPE by Tanya R. Taylor (Lucille Pfiffer Mystery Series Book 2) will be released September 5th and is also available now for pre-order.


“In Blind Escape the town of Chadsworth has a new headache on its hand - a puzzling murder for blind Lucille Pfiffer to solve. Will the mystery be unravelled in record time or will the stealthy killer or killers find their way to Lucille's doorstep? Lucille’s dog, Vanilla, once again claims her role as ‘protector’. But Lucille is majorly concerned - not just for her own safety, but for that of her cherished pet.”


I’m excited about this fabulous new mystery series by Tanya R. Taylor and have already pre-ordered Books 1 and 2!
