There's no need to be afraid
At Christmas time
We let in light and we banish shade
...and so begins one of my favourite Christmas songs. (Band Aid 1984)
I was watching the video clip yesterday on You Tube as I do most years, and it led me to reflect on age and life. Some of the singers in that clip have now passed on, and the others are heading into their later years.
Many of them achieved great things, both in the music world and in fundraising.. the Feed the World initiative of Bob Geldof.
As an author, I would hope that I've brought pleasure to my readers in the past year. Reading a Christmas message this week that thanked me for all my books made me smile. and fired that enthusiasm to keep writing the many stories that are in my head.
2017 is ending on a nice note. My new release (out 15 January ) HIS OUTBACK NANNY reached #2 on a bestseller list on pre-order last night. You can see it on my website... http://www.annieseaton.net/prickle-creek-farm. html
