If you haven’t signed up to my Newsletter yet, you’re missing out on some lovely freebies!

You can discover what I put in my Newsletters in the first third of the year by visiting my Newsletter Page and clicking on the links.

Since May I’ve shared another Freyan Verse Seven (one of my invented forms of poetry!) about what it’s like to dance. I’ve also told my readers why I can’t wait to sell my B&B! And I’ve revealed a little of a novel I’m writing about Eran Silver Hand (who’s mentioned in The Kaerling series). And on 15th August, I’ll be sharing episode 2 of my short story, Reality!

By signing up to my Newsletter you’ll only receive one email from me each month and you’ll be notified in the Newsletter about special offers and new launches!

Thank you to Bard of the Isles for publishing my short story, “Nya”. You can read it HERE! Click on Short Stories and scroll down to Nya by Freya Pickard.

Thank you also, to Spillwords for their pairing of my poem Stuck in the Middle with the perfect picture!

Thank you to the 1226 people in June who downloaded Silver Fire for FREE on Kindle. And thank you too to the people who also downloaded Silver Fire for FREE on Nook, Kobo and Apple. (I’m still waiting for the stats to come through to discover exactly how many downloads there were for each seller!)

If you’ve not read it yet, Silver Fire is the first volume of my fantastical series, The Kaerling. Reading the first book of any series for free is an excellent way of getting into the series – go on, try it! It’s on Amazon US, Amazon UK, Kobo, Apple, Nook and other stores…

And don’t forget that I managed to get my cover for The Butterfly Tree into yet another Book Cover Award contest, this time over at Alternative Read. If you have two minutes, please vote for The Butterfly Tree! The deadline is 31st July 2020! Thank you!

In this month’s issue I also attempt to describe how I fit in some writing during the months when our B&B is closed.

If I am in the middle of a sentence when the phone rings, I have to save the document and leave it there. I have to switch from creative mode to business mode and sometimes I lose the thread and never get the words back again for that particular moment …

Whenever you describe a scene, I don’t need pictures; the images are so clear in my mind. From ‘a chill wind rattled the dead leaves’ and ‘only the wind moaned,’ right through the end, you have such a unique, expressive and eloquent usage of words. S Evans

Don’t you just love the painting by Elisa Choi on the front cover?!

In this issue I describe what it’s like in the “quiet months” when running a B&B.

When we’re closed, I still have to answer the telephone and deal with online bookings. We try and keep to a regular routine otherwise we find we get too tired. We’re usually up by 8am …

I also continue my explorations of Dartmoor in haiku and elfje.

I really enjoyed reading it, the story is full of suspence and intrigue, which I both adore, and the haiku are great! C Messelodi
