The Good News and the not so Good News!

COMPETITION POSTPONED UNTIL BETTER TIMES:

Firstly ~ the ‘not so good’ news!

My dice competition, planned in January, will be postponed until at least June. There is no way I can deliver the real book prizes and have not had time to do any lead up to the event.

 

Secondly ~ the Good News!

In ten days time I am going ahead with a blog tour kindly set up by Mary Anne Yarde from The Coffee Pot Book Club

I’m really looking forward to being back into the world of bookish things again, after the manic time we are all having trying to ensure that ourselves and our parents are set for the lock down ~ for as long as it takes!

I’ll put more detailed announcements in the next few days days, but it will run from Monday 6th April to Friday 10th!

I wish you all good health,
                       boundless cheer in these dark times,
                                                                     wonderful neighbours and friends like we have here in Kinghorn
                                                                                                                                                  and that you avoid becoming too stir crazy,
                                                                                                                                                                                                                           keep safe and stay inside.

An Armchair Visit to Fife on Social Media

Podcasts and Website

Here are two website which are packed with information and photos:

https://fifecoastandcountrysidetrust.co.uk/walks/fife-pilgrim-way/ has much about the newly opened Fife Pilgrim Way from Cuross to St Andrews. There are helpful maps, hints and guides. It is a path I have yet to enjoy.

http://www.walkfife.com/walk-fife-podcast/ This is the most exciting site I’ve found of late. Podcasts brimming with suggestions, guides and advice to enjoy The Kingdom of Fife. Brilliant!

Love Fife on Twitter

I love searching for places I know on the internet. If you are visiting Fife there’s no better way (apart from reading the books on my last post ‘Excellent Books about The Fife Coastal Path’) to get to know a place from the comfort of your own armchair than connecting with bite sized posts on Twitter.

Here’s a flavour of tweeters I’m following. I’m sure there are many more. Please let me know if I’ve missed you.

A must to follow!

Not to Miss Photos!

For the record I’m @Riduna on Twitter. The name’s nothing to do with Fife by the way, but my fantasy/ memoir The Healing Paths of Fife is still for sale in aid of Kirkcaldy Foodbank until the end of February 2020.

If you love Fife and are not on my radar as yet and think you ought to be, it would be lovely to hear from you. Do get in touch on twitter @Riduna or email diana@dianamaryjackson.co.uk
