I have one book to rewrite, another to promote and another to start - and that's without looking at my current tbr list! You know what it's like.
All the best with it though - I'm sure it will be a great success!

I’m Still Standing

Yesterday I saw Rocketman, the movie of singer and legend Elton John. Specifically it deals with his burgeoning artistic career, during his years of addiction. As a writer, recovering alcoholic and former bulimic (like Elton) I found it highly relatable.

“Abbey was born to sophistication, whereas I was more Barbara than Buckingham Palace Windsor.”
Samantha Tonge, Doubting Abbey

“I am a down-to-earth gentleman who will never, under any circumstances, resemble some sort of romantic hero like Mr Darcy. ”
Samantha Tonge, Doubting Abbey

“What a precious gift I'd been given, to no longer have that constant internal narrative wondering if I fitted in - a narrative that I'd done my very best to hide, all these years. It made me feel somehow taller. Stronger. Proud of myself. More honest. I mean, what a waste of a life to spend it lying to everyone - and worst of all, to yourself.”
Samantha Tonge, The New Beginnings Coffee Club
