Published: The Labyrinth Year – sequel to Baby, Baby

The Labyrinth Year is now officially published – we are glad to announce that it’s selling from the website, and we’re donating £1.00 per purchased copy to Médecins sans Frontières towards their work in West Africa attempting to conquer the Ebola outbreak. So far we’ve collected about £20.00 which isn’t much but should pay for, say, a family hygiene kit or towards equipping another health worker with a protective suit.

Hopefully we can continue with the donations if people purchase from Amazon (both paperback or Kindle should be there soon), though less easily.

Here’s the blurb to entice you to read more:

‘You gave him those girls. What’s he giving you?’

In this sequel to Baby, Baby, Max and Jenny struggle with the pressures of work and family life. Jenny’s heart is in genetic research. Max is everyone’s idea of the caring family doctor. And then there are the kids…
As they build their careers and raise their children, can these two young professionals rely on their values to guide them? Is life a deluding maze, or a purposeful labyrinth?
A sparkling and keenly observed story from a writer who dares to look closely at the society around her.

‘Once again Mari is prepared to tackle complex subjects with clarity , sensitivity and courage,’ Bridget Plass, author of ‘The Apple of his Eye’

Today we were at the Chorleywood Indie Authors Fair with a crowd of other Independent Authors. This was the first literary festival Hodge has visited in order to sell books, publicise, and meet other writers, and a really useful experience. Never mind the dreich weather (rain and fog on the way home), the wonderful women of the WI or whoever made up for that with really good hot tea, and it was of course a chance to meet up in person, or at least say Hi to, many of other the ALLi members from the lovely supportive Facebook closed group.

More anon!
