May and ALL it entails!?

Good afternoon, Blessed Beltane, Happy Easter, Blessings of Ostera and so much more, seems I haven't updated my blog since Yule last year!
But, wow! Since then, what has happened to the world?
We're all living within a new world of family, closeness, lock down, new regimes, inner self and so much more - so long as there's space between us? Some are finding this existence difficult and my heart goes out to you, truly. Others, may have found a new journey that is bringing them an inner joy they hadn't expected - to you I say, fabulous.
Myself, well, if you know me at all either personal or through my blogs, you know I do not believe in merely existing, so I continue to truly live and enjoy LIFE ;)
I am over half way through my ten book deal, narrating the classics of Jane Austin, Bronte, Agatha Christie and more. It is certainly a truly weird and sometimes, almost, an unreal reality, when I step from one world, into another. Jumping from Bronte, to Austin, to Wilde, back to Austin, then Christie and back to Austin has been a roller coaster of regency dresses, spy thrillers and wild plays!!
I even began writing again. I am almost finished writing the first draft of my sixth novel. It is lovely to re-enter that fantasy, paranormal world and say hello to the characters I hadn't touched for over six months :(
I am offering a May Book Sale. Send payment to Paypal with the book(s) you want, name, address and if you're in UK, free postage as well as discount on books.

My husband is a delivery driver, now known as a 'Key Worker', which is bizarre for him as nobody had ever really taken much notice of the man who delivered their parcels, but suddenly, he is special, considered a hero and praised, by the public at least. His bosses and the government have refused to acknowledge his sacrifices. No pay rise. No gloves. No mask. But at least people on twitter have thanked him and those like him. I hope you remember the stress and possibilities of catching the virus that he endures when this is all over?
So, needless to say, our lives continue more or less as before. Our daughter is with us half the week and then we support her at her flat the other half so there is no cross contamination with support staff.
We miss our long weekend walks at various locations around Wales and England. We miss our friends, and I miss my Dad and Step Mum, but life keeps going and we find the joy within it.
We had a mini festival on Friday! That was pretty groovy and lots of fun. The week before that we had a Beltane party to celebrate the coming of Summer with dancing, singing, lots of music and party food.
When I walk every day, I truly look at nature around me and really see the beauty, smell the air, the grass, the blossom. Feel the sun on my skin, the breeze in my hair, the rain, soaking my clothes.
Live. be the life you want to enjoy.
Love and blessings

Just a quick note before I sign off for the Xmas period and take a break from the narration and writing of books.

Am I an Author ALL the time?

Just back from a music festival having spent four days determined to kill my liver and stomach with excesses of alcohol and naughty food!
During this time, I was aware of at least half a dozen women who would bring a book into the music tent and read while various bands played and drunken festival goer's danced around them, which I found an amazing achievement!
I was fascinated by this.
I took my book, but never felt any inclination to read. Neither did my husband, (who took my latest book!)
Whilst watching these ladies of various ages, I began to ponder if authors are ever 'off duty'? I noticed I'd hone in on the readers, checking out the book cover and fantasise about how I'd feel if I'd discovered they were reading one of mine!??
'Don't you ever switch off?' asked my husband.
And he was right to ask, because, do I? Does any author, musician, Artist? Are we continually looking to see if the public are enjoying our creations?
I think I am.
How about you?

The perils of Amazon and Pirates

Where Rivers Meet
So, firstly WHOOOHOOOO!! My fifth supernatural novel, Where Rivers Meet came out yesterday.
https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/wher...

Abigail Lloyd is a talented, grief-stricken young artist who returns to the Welsh village where she had spent many happy years with her beloved Nan. A home where she had always felt loved and safe. A place she hoped to begin her life again and find her own destiny; but on her return, she finds secrets that were long forgotten locked away in an old suitcase. Secrets from her childhood that will push her beliefs to the limit.

Cain is in love with a woman he knows he can never possess. He has watched her grow into a beautiful young woman, but in his harsh world, he knows she would never survive. He never questions the dark tunnel that allows him glimpses of another time, because it leads him to her. It is their destiny to meet.

Set among the Welsh mountains and the ruthless reality of the 19th century copper mines where life is in the hands of the elements and injury, and starvation and death are stark reminders of the time.
A Paranormal Romance

And secondly, I noticed only hours after it had been published, Amazon was allowing a third party, a pirate, to offer my brand new book as 'used' for an extra 50p!?
Firstly, HOW? It hadn't been printed anywhere. It was as new as a baby, so how the hell could it be 'USED'?
Secondly, WHY? Why does Amazon allow these pirates to sell MY book that I had spent months creating for your pleasure for ridiculous amounts of money = £10.46 + £2.60 postage??????????
Thirdly, WHY? Would anyone buy from these pirates when they can have the proper book, created by me for the decent price of £9.99.
Please please please consider your local bookshops, B&N, Blackwells, Waterstones.
Amazon are evil.
Thank you for allowing me to rant and rave.
Now, back to the good news - My book is OUT NOW!!!

Where Rivers Meet

P.J. Roscoe

You know that moment just before something exciting and wonderful happens. Like a fairground ride. You know the thrill is coming, you feel the anticipation and thoroughly enjoy the experience.
That moment when all the edits are finished. You and the editor have gone over every page about a million times (feels like it anyway!!) to find that one correction or change a sentence so it flows better or notice that snippet that doesn't quite work with the story and then, finally, after weeks of reading, corrections, more reading, more corrections, more reading...I could go on!!
It is finally ready. That moment when you both agree it is as perfect as a human can make it. It came from an idea in my head and look...There it is...My new novel.
Where Rivers Meet is at that point. It is ready. It is primed. It is queuing for it's turn to move off onto the fairground ride. I am sitting in my seat, feeling the adrenaline, the rush, the excitement, the anticipation.
Are you?
I am offering a giveaway in e-book form to be the first to receive Where Rivers Meet.

Delve into my world...

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Three-Electr...

Above is the link to Amazon where you can purchase my new supernatural book of short stories and three character subplots for a mere £1 or $1.30.
Does this appear too expensive to you?
Here's the thing. I as the author of this book, that took weeks of editing, planning, sorting, collaborating, writing the stories gets 29p. Yes, that's right, less than what it costs to buy a packet of malteasers! Milk for your coffee or bread for your toast.
Readers assume we're rich and live lifestyles of the eccentric with a wine glass dangling from our fingers, a cigarette perched precariously between our lips whilst staring at the words in front of us, blubbing over how 'bloody good' it is!!
Not so, or at least, not me anyway, or any of my author colleagues.
We sit as often as is possible and work on the next story, the next novel which can take days, weeks, months, even years of struggle and strife to get it absolutely perfect, for you, the readers to gain enjoyment, be delighted, to be emotionally pulled in all directions, to be entertained.
It is our gift to you.
Enjoy xx

Update of Books - Need more Hauntings!

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Three-Electr...

So, above is the latest book out last month - THREE, a book of short supernatural stories to showcase my work. Hope you like it.
I wanted to update you on my progress of THIRTEEN HAUNTINGS which is my non-fiction book of 13 investigations throughout Wales and England. I'm half way through!
Visited Llanfyllyn Workhouse the other day - a gentle haunting during the hours of daylight, it would be interesting to return with a nightly paranormal group - watch this space!
I need five more locations that would be willing to allow me access for a few hours, day or night to investigate the building's characters and relay my experiences.
If you know of a location that would be willing, or have a place you know is haunted, please contact me via my website www.pjroscoe.co.uk or answer this blog.
Thank you
Paula x
