From a serial writers diary ...

My new book has been out since Monday, and I'm having problems concentrating. It'll get back soon, I know that, so I'm not worried. I've spent the last week reading Under the Dome by Stephen King, and although it didn't grip me the way The Stand did, it was still a good read.
Otherwise it's all nice and quiet at the Northern front. Spring is coming, winter is still at it's heel, but  it's coming. And I haven't written much new stuff lately. It's an itch.
But it's all good.
Oh, yeah, very good ...

Technologically challenged - help?

I'm not a tech savvy, I'm happy as long as my computer works, so when something goes wrong, I get frustrated. Since Sunday, I've been having problems with my Facebook page. No updates show, no matter how many times I try. So far, no response from the four reports I've sent to Facebook.
Because I get frustrated, I have no patience. So I try to fix things.
I changed the username ot my page, so now I can't get into the page - it's on and off, sometimes I see it, sometimes I don't.
I also changed the password, and achieved only that now my phone demands I enter it everytime I access Facebook from the mobile.
Any good advice?
Help ...

Back in business ...

I've been avoiding my blogs these last months. I have two other blogs in Norwegian, and the blogging thing takes time. And sometimes priorities have to be hard. And in September last year I stopped writing blogs. Now I've started again but I'll keep my ambitions at a lower level.
My priorities have been preparing for my new series - the first book will be published on February 20th. I'm really looking forward to it. This is my second series, and the experience is still exciting! It's fun and challening, so I'll keep going for as long as I enjoy it.

We're having a competition in connection with the book and people can win the first five books. (It's in Norwegian - as are the books, so ...). Anyone want to participate, here's the link: Skjebnesøstre

I'm reading two books at the moment: The Retribution by Val McDermids, and Snuff by Terry Pratchett. They have absolutely nothing in common, which makes it a bit bizarre when I change books. Retribution is dark and filled with serial killers and gruesome details, Snuff is my favourite policeman, Sam Vimes, going to the country side. Funny, but not hilarious. At least so far. I might even manage to write about them here when I'm finished ...
Read well!
