First a reminder: you have two days left to participate in my competition. The chances of winning are still fairly good.

May competition (world wide)
Read “Liquorice Twists” and answer three simple questions. Send the answers to do.hu.ja (at) mail.tele.dk before the end of May, and two of you will win an Amazon voucher (£ 5 or $ 8).

a) what is the name of the baby in story no 8, “A Question of Perspective”?
b) which car brand is mentioned in story no 11, “Swept Away”?
c) what is the name of the main character of story no 18, “In the Dark”


And if you are in the mood for more suspense, you can read my short story “Heather Farm” for free during the launch period (May and June). Plenty of love, ghosts and countryside atmosphere. Go to Smashwords and enter the coupon code EP59D – and if you like the story, please make my day by spreading the word to your friends.


Latest Liquorice Twists news

I am happy to tell my writer friends that they were right; Amazon offers a large market,  it is often the first place readers search for an ebook, and now I seen had my first sales trickle in there. And while I was in Bristol, Kerrie showed med that I had had my first Amazon review – five stars that made a wonderful day even better:

“This selection of shorts is naughty but in a good way”. 

And I am glad to see that readers of my latest collection appreciate the story ´Catastrophe´ which was a last-minute addition.

NB: perhaps I should make it clear that I appreciate it very much whenever readers take the time to write a fair and honest review of my stories no matter how many or few stars they give me  🙂

    Congratulations on the move! I don’t blame you for switching over and would do the same if I could. My internet provider just can’t handle what it would take, though, if it’s still like it was when I attempted the move from my Yahoo blog several years ago.

    Now I just need to change your address so you show up correctly in my dashboard and I don’t miss any of your posts!

    Dorte – Oh, this is lovely! Welcome to the WordPress family :-). You’ve made a very attractive new home for yourself, and I am very much looking forward to visiting you daily :-).

  3. Kelly: thank you. I think you should try. It went very smoothly, really.

    Margot: thank you. I blundered a bit around yesterday, but today I found a theme I liked and succeeded in adding some photos from Thy, and I am quite satisfied with the local touch.

    I do have a WP account which I set up when I tried to switch before. At the time, though, it required a bigger file for transfer than my ISP could handle. At least I can use my WP account (or my LiveJournal account, which I had totally forgotten about… yet another place I tried blogging) to comment on some of the blogs I’ve been having trouble with.

  5. Congrats on your books on amazon. I’ll try to read the stories after the weekend!

    Btw….I meant to tell you my younger daughter downloaded all your titles now that they’re available at Amazon.
