As for the raunchy scenes….

But I also blog – tab in bar above, me too on occasion–here mainly on writing, as well as what today’s fancy is, Glencoe mountains, friends, films, Mr Shey, the difference between mushy peas and broccoli soup, hey, you name it, often inviting fellow authors to share books and experiences.

  1. Bonjour
    Il était une fois des gentils bisous
    Qui voulaient parcourir le monde
    et voir ses merveilles …
    Soudain, au détour de la vie
    ils ont rencontré ton Amitié
    Alors sur ta joue
    ils se sont posés, et sont restés
    Je te souhaite une bonne
    et merveilleuse journée
    Suivie d’une douce soirée

  3. Hi, I just wanted to let you know that I nominated your wonderful blog for the Real Neat Blog Award. More information can be found here:


  4. Hi, Shehanne! I hope you’re doing well and relaxing while keeping up with those hamstahs, as well as writing new books!
    Has there been any new theatre productions? Thank you for all the times you comment, my very dear friend. 💕xoxo

    • I am busy at 80 thou words in on my work in progress. It’s had a lot of twists and turns, unexpected ones and changes galore. But I am nearly there even if it all needs tidying up, given the twists and turns. We are going to be rerunning the Mr’s play with the backing of the education dept in June. I can now say that. He has been jumping through hoops on that one. Still a few to clear but yeah we finally have dates in the diary whatever. I love coming to your blog. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  5. I’m not really a fan of romance novels… Come to think of it… I’m not really a fan of books at all. Lol.😂

    Id like to thank you for all the support you’ve showed. Peace and blessings to ya! Thanks!

  6. Happy new year to you too

    Une légende dit

  16. First of all I would like to say terrific
    blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.
    I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
    tend to be wasted just trying to figure out
    how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Thank you!

    • LOL, you’ve probably asked the wrong one here given my thoughts are always constantly muddled! AND I never have a clue where I am going with anything I write. BUT, I would say to you, there is nothing wrong at all with what you describe. I have times like that too. I think it’s down to finding that space for writing. Often that’s in the middle of so much else that you can’t get in the swing straight off because of all you’ve come from and all you’re sitting in the middle of. I try to write so much every day regardless. Right now, I am just so busy getting my backlist books back out with a publisher, and setting up my own wee house that I’m not writing anything new as such but I will get back to it very soon now. Now sometimes that word quota takes me forever cos I am doing what you talk about and other times it takes me no time at all. But when I hit a brick wall which is often and I am trying to figure out where the hell to go next, so I am sitting like you for ten fifteen minutes trying to figure out, I always return to one basic. That is to ask myself where this character is right now, and given what kind of person they are, and what their goal is right now, what would THEY do next and I get going no bother again. A lot of it comes down to focus, not your focus but the focus of the story itself. Good luck and listen don’t give up something you enjoy. Writing is never as easy as folks often think. It’s damned hard in terms of the juggling act and the best thing is to be kind to yourself about it

  17. WOW!!! I was expecting hamsters. Great reviews!

    • Oh dear… I suppose if you don’t take ut the trumpet no-one else will Adrienne. Thank you. Yir a gem, The dudes will be here this week with their favorite–not–guest. The lovely Cat Cavendish. They’ve just been a bit quieter if late till I get what became my New year orphaned books off my plate xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  18. Bonjour ou bonsoir SHEHANNE

    La vie a grand besoin de respect et d’amour
    Il faut savoir donner pour mériter de prendre
    Ce qui nous est offert et savoir aussi le rendre
    Nous traversons, souvent, pendant notre vie
    Des tortueux chemins qui viennent nous surprendre
    C’est alors qu’il nous faut ouvrir nos cœurs et tendre
    La main à nos amis pour leur dire bonjour

    Belle journée ou belle soirée

    Bisous Bernard

  20. BONJOUR ou BONSOIR avec Du Bonheur SHEHANNE

    Le bonheur se lit dans les cœurs
    L’amour s’écrit avec toujours
    La gentillesse est une caresse
    L’amitié, que de la bonté
    La présence source d’indulgence
    La tendresse est une richesse
    Que l’on a au fond de son coeur
    Sachons cultiver ce bonheur
    Passe une belle et agréable journée ou soirée
    En ce jour qu’il soit plein de joie et de la bonne humeur
    Gros bisous

    Beautiful,wonderful blog.I very very like your bloq.Thanks more thanks

    You are my love.İ love you.İ love you

  23. Such a brilliant presentation of your fantastic novels,darling,darling!Great idea to include those alluring,fancy photos and some comprehensive excerpts!It’s so practical for your readership to have everything in one post and also to see that there’s more on the way … You’re so prolific,sweet friend Shey!Keep triumphantly going,you’ve already the acknowledgement you deserve 🙂 xxxxxxxxxxx

    • Doda, this has just come in to me. I think there’s been blips with this whole change over re data sharing etc. cos it’s not alone, and what makes me laugh since these new laws –aye right– re privacy etc, is that Facebook are automatically tagging people in my posts , facial recognition what, when I don’t ask them and have to remove all the tags, talking privacy. Aye right. In other words just let’s admit it’s what we’re doing and stop trying to hide it now we have your consent which we don’t need anyway. Anyway, you have made my day with this lovely comment. Truly. We are off to Yorkshire tomorrow for a few days and I will get in my way with a happy heart now. THEN I will come home and finish editing Destiny for release this summer. Finish that final chapter too. She’s been lying dying on a beach since Christmas, the poor woman, but that hero was such a change his mind about what exactly he was, he’s given me a ton of work and it’s been quite a year this far. Thank you for all your love, your kindness and your unfailing support my darling, darling friend. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    • An intriguing and very ingenious post on your books, Shey. Super attractive! ❤

  24. Never late than never,darling,Shey.Oh gosh,still,for many on the internet,GDPR remains a black box of obscure policy.Nothing is safe,and will never be …
    How nice you’re getting ready for your trip to Yorkshire,I love this region,we have visited it many times.You’ll come back very refreshed and inspired to finish your new novel.Make sure,I’ll be the first one to buy it.Is it going to be released before August?Please let me know.I’ll never stop supporting you,you and your gripping novels deserve it.Enjoy your holidays,darling,darling friend,Shey.Take care xxxxxxxxx

    • I am hoping to have it out end of July now. Thing is I have never stopped working this year. Etopia Press binned all us foreign authors without telling us but I have a new publisher for the backlist books but they all had to be looked at again, I was busy setting up my own wee house at that point–now ready to go– and of course I was really not well for a few months there, then there was the play and editing my husband’s book, there now…. All go. So desperate for this we break. We go to Yorkshire a lot, mainly to walk now but it is a lovely area and I do love York. We always stay outside of it. Love to you bits Doda, and will be well keeping everyone informed of when the new book comes out. thank you so much xxxxxxxxxx
      PS… GDPR…. Teeth going on edge here. Every thing you now go on has that big box you are meant to click. You still get on the site and they still track all your movements anyway. You know by the ads that come up.

  25. So beautiful:)

  26. Thanks for your nice comment. :):)

  27. Shehanne: finally found a space to splash the series name of writer S(teve) M. Stirling’s fine (and, yes, slightly sexy) post-apocalyptic novels titled – after the colon of course :A Novel of The Change. The first pair Dies The Fire and Protector’s war begin a near if not actual dozen swords and longbows, lances and catapults, sorcery and witchcraft and darringdory of Christian brothers in armor. The meat comes at each book, but the gist is – this guy writes. And co-authors. And bad news: my library has you not. Shall I pitch a fit? Right now, or would you like media coverage. Now I must schlep to local book store – nearby is another kind of local so no trouble there. Be well. See you in the blog. J Richards

    • I had a look at his books and they look fabulous. Also liked the prose style. SO yeah I will defo get them. Lol. You pitch a fit!!! I can’t imagine what local this will be you are now visiting x

  28. Great front page! I linked here from Inese’s blog! She asked us not to step on any Hamsters! 😀

    Hello.Shehanne come to Azerbaijan.Please

  30. I may be the 363rd comment, oh hamsters do not hate me!
    However, i have decided to focus more on my Art Gowns blog. Yes, street art is very enticing, but it’s not my art.
    SO, I have begun to sketch and paint my Art Gowns …more.
    You see, it takes 3 – 6 months to make an Art Gown. What about the time in between?
    Art Gowns Art is my answer.
    Sketches, paintings, and Art Gown worthy reblogs.
    So, I might reblog a gorgeous cover of one of Shehanne’s books, if the gown is moving me. OR I might re-post a pic of one of the hamsters in a gown. Does that ever happen? Shehanne would be gorgeous in an Art Gown.
    I think hamsters should be able to wear gowns, just like everyone.
    Sending HUGS! _Resa

  31. Resa, you are way too kind BUT personally I would love to see more of your art gowns. They are amazing. You have such talent . I can all the work that goes into them. xxxxxxxxxx

  32. WOW!!!
    I only came to read about hamsters.

  33. Etkileyici bir sayfa.

  34. Kalpten sevgiler

  35. Hi Shehanne!
    I’m your long lost blogging friend, Robin or reocochran! Hey, are you on Instagram?
    My Instagram is:
    DG Kaye and Luanne Castle, Merril D Smith and Colleen Chesebro are on Instagram and I think FB. Hugs and kisses xo
    xxxxxxxxxxxx ❤️ xxxxxxxxxxxx

  36. Bonsoir ou bonjour mon amie SHEHANNE
    Ce soir
    Une nouvelle nuit vas tomber
    Le sommeil va arriver
    Tes yeux vont se fermer
    Et comme d’habitude tu vas rêver
    D’amour et d’amitié ,
    Et demain tu vas t’éveiller
    Sans rien te rappeler
    De qui tu as rêvé
    Mais tu te rappelleras
    Que la veille tes amies
    Sont venues te souhaiter
    Une merveilleuse soirée ou bonne soirée
    Sur ces lignes je te souhaite pour ce soir

    Une très belle soirée et douce nuit gros bisous Bernard

    Je viens sur la pointe des pieds te déposer un café

    Que ce soit après un doux réveil ou après un bon repas
    Il est d’un gout
    Au doux breuvage légèrement corsé et fruité
    Pour bien commencer en douceur ta journée ou autre
    IL réchauffera ton cœur
    Sous sa douce chaleur dans ces subtils arômes
    De mon café s’échappe une petite fumée aux milles et une douce saveurs parfumées
    Pour un doux réveil après une douce nuit ou après une moment de repos
    Que les arômes de ce doux café
    Viennent en ta demeure s’évaporer
    Pour y laisser ces douces notes parfumées en embaumant ta demeure
    Bonne journée à toi que j’apprécie sincèrement
    Que tu vives avec tes proches de délicieux moments

    Bisous , Bernard

  40. Hey Shey, squeaking loudly – sounds fabulous and how are the dudes!! I will try to catch up with all but a special hug for you my bonny dear!!

    • Oh mah bonnie wee more than dearie, dinnae you ever fash yourself aboot thon and tell the moosie the same, The dudes will be here soon, they are jist ..ken..busy bootin the bahoochie oh the latest book inate shape xxxxxxxx

  41. What an amazing collection of feisty females – a BIG slice of raunch, I’d say.

    • Lol …you know Cath, you have no idea the trouble I have with them. I start out every time writing someone nice. This present one was to be a grief stricken widow I mean seriously prostrate and she would have caused no hold ups if she had stayed that way and caused the hero to fall for her cos he feels responsible for this. But she got the revenge bit between her teeth and NOW? Now I have had to haul her back and tell her straight she is not palatable. So this final coat of paint is to make her palatable. This was on top of the hero throwing the whole book half way through chapter two. And that happens in every book. You have no idea of the hair I tear. But thank you. You’re very, very kind. xxxxxx

  42. Have a great day

  43. Coucou toi, mon Amie SHEHANNE
    Je viens déposer
    Le soleil dans ton coeur
    Ma douceur dans ton âme
    Un ciel étoilé dans ton regard
    Lorsque ton coeur
    Parlera à mon coeur
    Nos âmes brûleront ,d’une douce chaleur
    Lorsque je viens te rendre visite
    Il me semble que je prends ta main
    Afin d’être unis d’une grande amitié Céleste
    Agréable journée ou soirée belle semaine
    Gros bisous Bernard

  44. Your site looks as smexy as ever, Shehanne. 🙂


    Chaque jour quelque soit l’heure
    J’allume mon ordinateur
    Ce n’est qu’une petite boîte rectangulaire
    Parfois elle me fais râlé
    Parce qu’elle me fait attendre
    Pourtant elle a le cœur tendre
    Elle t’envoie mes courriers
    Sans jamais se fatiguer
    Elle affiche mes mots
    Sans jamais me dire si c’est trop
    Elle transporte mes images
    Qu’elle affiche sur tes pages

    Maintenant encore
    Elle t’envoie un bisou de ma part
    Te souhaite une très très belle journée
    Profite bien

  46. We can all do with a little slice of raunch dear lass, I prefer mine with a touch of balsamic vinegar and and salt. Me waving madly!! I miss you! This looks fabulous!

    • Aye lass, we all need that… No the balsamic vinegar. The raunch. Hope you’re good. it was great to see you back out there last night, your gorgeous images and ancestry talk. Waving back madly in return. All the way fae bonnie Scotland where you should be. xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

      • ooh I will be back for certain!!! Nick is having surgery so is going to be laid up a while. I’m struggling to put up the Christmas lights that I so love!! Nollaig Chridheil, and all that!! I’m so perverse I pray for snow!! 🙂 Hugs dear lass!!

      • Well my darling, I didn’t like to nosey the other night on your blog when you said re the light being the train… I know you have your sorrows. And I know this time is hard when things aren’t as you’d like. I remember thinking that and using the idea in Destiny that we do light the tree, the lights whatever cos in holding onto these things we are holding onto far more and that is the knowledge that our world is as it should be. So yeah, it’s murder when it’s not. Big hugs.
        Nollaig Chridheil, when it comes, despite ti all xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  47. Such loveliness, your covers are amazing and so is everything else. I had to travel far to get down here to leave my bit of words, you are amazing, your books are amazing! Happy New Year if I have not said before! ❤

    • My goodness. YOU are the amazing one. You write so beautifully, words that are a delight to read. Delicious in fact. Truly. I am such a huge fan of your work. And this is very kind and generous of you. Honestly. The very best to you this coming year. I am so looking forward to reading more of your poetry. Lots of love and thank you. It’s beyond generous of you in fact xxxx

  48. Loved every word and pic! You’re fantastic ! 💜🤗

  49. Thoughtful and wonderful
