Something lucky that happened to me

 This topic from Long and Short Reviews was a tough one. My first thought was about winning something, and to be honest I am not a person who wins things. I once won a prize in a bingo game for being the only person in the room not to have had a single number called off their ticket, so needless to say I am not a "lucky" person.

I did manage to win a prize a few months ago which was pretty impressive - it involved a free trip to Go Ape, a year's free bus travel in Yorkshire and a £100 bar tab at a bar in Otley. I haven't bothered with the Go Ape voucher, but I can't complain about the bus pass or the afternoon we spent getting drunk on orange wine.

Other than that, the only thing I can think of as lucky is my writing. I have had the good fortune to be published by publishers who love my writing and who recently offered me a three-book deal. The first in the series, Hyperventilating, will be out on 21st June and I can't wait to unleash it on the world.

In fact, I have a partial cover to reveal today.

So what lucky things have happened to you?


  1. I hope you enjoy your free bus travel! How neat.

  2. That actually does sound like a cool prize package.

    1. I certainly enjoyed it, though very unexpected.
