Fiction update Christmas 2019

Dear network,

Apologies for the silence over these last few months and apologies also for the lack of cheer in this update, despite Christmas approaching.

As you may have noticed, there were no details sent out about the promised book launch, nor have I been in touch with news about my upcoming book…
This is due to me spending most of the autumn over in Sweden, initially because of my father’s ailing health and, later, due to his passing away at the end of October.
All autumn, well into December, has mostly been focused on events in Sweden and all the practicalities of the aftermath of death.
It’s only now, back in the UK, that life is taking on some sort of normality again and I’m beginning to refocus on my creative endeavours.

I’m pleased and grateful to find that copies of both my current works of fiction are somehow still selling, despite my complete lack of time and energy to promote them since the summer.
If my sources are correct, How Pat Got Her Five Cats and Boldly Into Darkness Go have now been read in ten countries to date; England, Scotland, Wales (yep, I see them as countries), Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Slovenia, Barbados, Peru and the USA! If you know of anywhere that I’ve missed out, please let me know and I’ll add it to my stats.
The books are still available from Amazon and, as of next year, I hope to make them (and future works) available directly from my website:

My last newsletter contained many plans for the autumn and winter, most of which have now been cancelled or postponed, including my month-long writer’s residency in Latvia. This means that for 2020, I’m looking for good tips for places to spend quality time writing. Not writer’s retreats, as such, just nice areas to check out, close to nature, maybe near the odd bar… Feel free to send me any recommendations you might have.

To end on a positive note, my third work of fiction, a winter fairytale entitled Hug-Snow Days, has just been sent to the printers this week. Even though it won’t be out before Christmas, as intended, it will have a January release date and I will keep you posted on when it’s out.

Finally I wish you all a lovely, relaxing festive season and a wonderful, creative 2020.

All the best,

AM Hellberg Moberg aka Anna Maria
