The Single Best Thing is OUT NOW! It came out on Kindle on Valentine’s Day and it’s the finale to the Singles’ Series, and it’s a look into the future, telling us what did become of Eve and her life after leaving Travel Together at the end of Singles, Set and Match. Did she and Melv have their Happy Ever After? You’ll have to read it and see! It will also be out in paperback next month.
To accompany the blog tour, so wonderfully organised by Rachel Gilbey I wrote some articles for various bloggers. I will be putting them … Read the rest »
Here it is! Out today to coincide with the first day of Wimbledon, on Kindle and in paperback very shortly. Singles, Set and Match. The fifth book in the Singles’ Series. And reviews today have been super! “Very absorbing and I found it easy to get lost in Eve’s world for hours.” Overtherainbowbookblog.wordpress.com
”Elaine has such an amazing gift that wherever she writes about, you feel like you’ve had a holiday there yourself.” Kimthebookworm.co.uk
”I must have gone through every emotion possible reading this…What a roller coaster ride. I absolutely freaking loved it.” Bakersnotsosecret.blog
Good morning! I am trying to stay upbeat and positive today in spite of the weather. Now, oddly for someone who’s lived so much of her life in hot climates, I don’t like very hot weather. But I’m getting a bit tired of putting the heating on in the second week of June! But the house has felt so damp and cool the last few nights that I’ve had no option. I’ve been doing the hokey cokey with the washing. It’s been in – out – in – out because of the sudden downpours and so shaken all about with … Read the rest »
Reviews are an author’s life blood. Our readers can’t imagine the thrill it gives us when they write a review. Okay – sometimes a one star review sends a writer running to the coffee or something stronger! – but you learn to accept that your work isn’t going to be everyone’s cup of tea. So it’s a bit galling when Amazon – yes THAT Amazon, the champion of writers and indie authors – won’t let you post a review. This was the case when I tried to post a review for Kim Nash’s Amazing Grace.
At the moment it’s with an army of book bloggers who have kindly agreed to take part in my blog tour, which has been organised by the fabulous Rachel Gilbey (and who I’ve driven nuts!). And that’s exciting and frightening at the same time. Eeek! Crossing all fingers and toes they’ll like it. … Read the rest »

Janet Street-Porter is a Marmite celebrity; with her forthright views, distinctive, quirky look and abhorence of being hugged by anyone outside her immediate circle, you love her or you can’t stand her. I fall into the former category. I admire her for being herself and telling it as it is and I tend to only watch Loose Women when she’s on the panel.
Janet comes across as a strong woman with a large circle of friends so I was a bit surprised to find out that she’s admitted to being lonely. Apparently a couple of months ago she … Read the rest »
Goodness me, it’s been a while since I put fingertips to keyboard and posted something for you. Sincere apologies! But there are two fundamental reasons for my extended silence.
The first, it’s all been bad news really and nobody wants to read about other people’s problems; most have enough with their own without having to listen to mine. 2017 was a tough old year – three hurricanes, the sale of Avocado Cottage falling through four times, banging my head against a brick wall against so many people and things in both Antigua and UK, finding myself with … Read the rest »
What a brilliant surprise earlier today…… A lovely lady – SB – contacted me after seeing my I Feel GOOD post – all the way from…….Australia!! Isn’t it amazing? I’m sitting in Avocado Cottage, Antigua, West Indies, posting a blog about my wonderful Little Yellow Pills and how much good they’re doing me and she’s reading all about it more than eleven thousand miles away! The wonders of technology never fail to amaze me. And I’m delighted she wants to deal with her oxidative stress and get really well again. Oxidative stress is the cause of more than two hundred … Read the rest »
