Not at all sure where the weeks have gone again, but today it looks as if summer is well and truly over as it's wet, windy and already getting dark at 6pm.

My last blog was at the very beginning of July and at that time I was getting ready for publication of, and the launch for my 6th novel, Second Best. Both were on 31st July and on that very morning I was interviewed by the lovely Tara Dominick at Hope FM, the Bournemouth based radio station.

According to 'Flair For Words' who reported the launch that evening, 'Pam Fudge's latest novel - Second Best - was launched at the Poole branch of Waterstones on 31st July and about 60 people came to applaud her success. What's more she sold (and signed) more than 40 books. Waterstone's manageress told us that usually no more than half a dozen books are sold on these occasions. There's definitely nothing second best about our Pam.' (

The success of the evening was down to Dee Steed of Waterstones who ably managed the event with her usual good humour and patience and, of course, to my lovely family and friends who support me every inch of the way, not only buying my books - but passing on so many lovely comments when they do. Check out the photos on the 'News' link of the website.

Now it's back to autumn - the best time for writing I always think.
