An Irish Promise

Posted by Liv Thomas on October 3, 2014 at 3:25 PM Comments comments (2)

The second book in our 'Irish' series, was e-published yesterday.  Does that make us old hands?  It's still very surreal, but it's a good feeling to be able to claim two novels to our name.

I would post a pic, but not for the first time, this site won't allow me to do so.  Methinks I need a new host..

Looking forward to hearing how people think the new novel compares to Beneath an Irish Sky.  Although it's possibly more of a romance, I t...

Beneath an Irish Sky...the musical

Posted by Liv Thomas on June 15, 2014 at 1:20 PM Comments comments (17)

When I listen to music, I often get plot ideas, or I relate certain lyrics to situations my characters have been in.  So I started to wonder, which songs could make up the story for Beneath an Irish Sky - if I could produce a BAIS soundtrack, what would be on it?  This is what I came up with. Some of these are actually mentioned in the book, others could well be. If you're not familiar with the songs but have read the book, click on the YT links and listen to the word...

My Writing Process

Posted by Liv Thomas on January 26, 2014 at 5:50 PM Comments comments (19)

Thanks, Cathy Mansell, for inviting me to take part in this blog chain. I have to confess, my blog has been sadly neglected of late because we spent a good part of last year editing and promoting Beneath an Irish Sky.

We're also in the process of completing our second novel, An Irish Promise. It hasn't been easy with real life int...

Sport in schools?

There's been a lot of talk this week about the fact that PE is being taken off the curriculum in some, or all, schools. The main argument appears to be that it's not as important as getting grades in other subjects.

That - in my humble - is ridiculous on more than one count.

It's been established that it's easier to pass exams now than in the past, so I can't see that a couple of hours of PE will make a difference. And ...
