Beautiful Surprise

This soundtrack is a little bit like a tagine. Taking some meat, vegetables, spices and a little water, then let it bake for a year and a bit... Then open it up just to throw in some new stuff because James Blake has a new album and my God it's helped with edits. Flowing like water! So, yah, he deserves a double spot. Then you have my discovery of the gorgeous Ibeyi (cheers Beyoncé!) and ginger man of the hour (this changes on a regular, you know this) Jack Garratt. Bring the base, blud. Bring the damn base.

So in anticipation of getting this done sooner rather than later, here is the soundtrack of Scottish love - via London and Marrakech.

  1. I have never enjoyed a good read as much as I enjoy reading every single book I could get my hands on of yours.
    You have the most optimistic storytelling abilities when it comes to your heroines and heroes.
    I can't stop reading your books once I start them because I have to know what happens next.
    So now I'm waiting for more stories from you because I have just finished your most recent and as usual you did not disappoint.
    Your books make me wish I owned a publishing company just so that I could be the first person to read your stories because that's just how much I love your storytelling abilities.

    1. Thank you so much! That's so wonderful to read, I may laminate it and frame it!! I've got another coming out today - or most likely tomorrow morning, so keep an eye out! Best wishes, and stay with me!

  2. I got mine! So chuffed! Off to read.....cheers


    1. Hurrah and jubilations!

      Really hope you enjoy it!
