Z is for Zythum #AtoZChallenge #AncientEgyptians #TimeTravel

Phew, made it to the end. It’s been quite frazzling and a couple of posts may have been a tad below par (Happiness, anyone?) but I still managed to cover every letter. Even if there were an awful lot of TV related posts. Hey, I like TV.

Zythum is a beer drunk by Ancient Egyptians.  You only need to know this because it gets a mention in my book.  Which I have ACTUALLY finished and starts its final edit/proofread tomorrow!!   TIME Agents (working title) is about two ordinary sisters who discover that their missing dad is a time-travelling secret agent.  They train to become TIME agents so they can travel to Ancient Egypt…will they manage to save him before the Pharaoh sacrifices him???

It’s a children’s book which is a genre I (and many other adults) enjoy reading enormously, and apparently sales are a lot higher than for adult books (even if David Walliams and other celebs account for most of those sales).  Once it’s been completely proofread, I’m going to try a few agents to see how I get on.  Wish me luck.

The A-Z Challenge has been great for rekindling my love of blogging and I will try to post again before next April.  I’ve discovered some fabulous blogs: great writing, funny bloggers and interesting posts, along with new writing prompts.  Which I obviously need!

Now, I’m off to edit my NaNoWriMo novel: a Christmas murder mystery.  There are a few plot holes which need filling…can you kill someone with a candy cane??

  1. Well done on making it to the end! Good stuff all month and I look forward to reading your blog in the future, including your flash fiction efforts. Good luck with the books – you’re way better than Walliams I’m sure! 🙂

  2. I remember smiling when I first saw your tagline. Congrats on finishing the A to Z and I do hope to see you online here again before next April :). Thanks also for the nod to my blog – I am honoured.

    A Zythum (or just beer if I can’t figure out time travel) toast to you, me and all those who survived A to Z. All the best with the book – I wish you every success!

  3. Congrats on finishing your book. As someone who struggles to meet even the simplest of deadlines, I think completing any deadline is a cause for celebration.
    Even with adult books, the celeb bios are the biggest sellers. So few people actually read books of any kind. Even I don’t read so much these days, and I used to be an avid reader. At the end of the day when I’m tired and need to unwind it is so much easier to trawl through FB or watch something on Netflix, isn’t it?

    1. Thanks very much. It’s taken a long time, with some big gaps where I didn’t do anything with it. But I’m pleased with myself that I’ve finished it, even if no-one ever reads it! Yeah, it’s so easy just to flick on the TV or laptop, instead of reading…although as I usually just fall asleep anyway, at least with a book it doesn’t carry on playing!


  4. Hi again.. just me. I wanted to let you know I was nominated for an award… Part of that is nominating others and you are one of the people I chose. If you wish to accept.. come by and see what I did today and the rules and then… have fun following the rules. (I did have fun).
