There have been quite a few misty mornings of late and I’ve been out and about to see them. And they’ve all been beautiful. The sunrise above is over the Formartine area of Aberdeenshire. The wee tree below is in Strichen Community Park.
And there was one, quite common for Scotland really, morning in which all seasons seemed to happen at once. That was beautiful, though cold, too.
I’ll be posting some more photos of these misty mornings in my newsletter next week.
In other, non- weather related, news, I have finally, after many requests, organised a way for people to order signed copies of the books and/or signed bookmarks. See them here in the Ko-fi shop.

Set in 1st century Scotland, my latest novel, SISTERS AT THE EDGE OF THE WORLD, includes the battle of Mons Graupius between the Romans and the Caledonian tribes. The book features a neurodivergent main character and some rather complicated romance!

FIREFLIES AND CHOCOLATE was inspired by the kidnapped children and young people of Aberdeen. The story follows the adventures of Elizabeth Manteith from the castle and her determined efforts to get back home. There’s love. There’s derring-dos on the high seas… And there’s chocolate!

Correction Notice: Sorry ! You ” liked” a post of mine, and there is a mistake: Nybster Bloch is a mathematical 57 or 33 degrees, not 70, from Mauritious /island coastal archeological site, called, La Natural. Sorry ! Thank you for ” liking “.
To see the importance of a 57 or 33 degree angle, see site. example: Orion’s belt is at 33 degrees in a Mercator projection star map, page at site. Sorry for the mistake !
I am reading “Fireflies and Chocolate” now and loving it! Well written!
Thank you Janet 🙂 I’m glad you’re enjoying it.
