We first went to the Dordogne a couple of years ago and it was where I was inspired to start writing my first novel, Secrets of the River. There was a particular commune (or as I like to think of it, village) called Brantome which ended up being the place the book was set.
I am really excited to be back there and although we aren't staying in Brantome itself this time, we have set aside a day or two to travel over so I can capture and share some of the places which feature in the book and perhaps get some further inspiration for a sequel which I know some people have been asking for.
This is me in 2013, being inspired...
Perhaps I will see it all through different eyes now that SOTR is based there or perhaps it will be just the same. I really have no clue but I am hoping that it will, for the most part, remain unchanged.
If you've read the book you will get the relevance of a random man fishing in the river and if you haven't then you now have no excuse as to honour the fact that I will be in Brantome within the week, Secrets of the River will be just 99p from today until Tuesday and then will be £1.99 for the duration of the holiday. I would love to see people downloading and perhaps hopping over to Instagram which is where I will be sharing most of my photos from the trip (I'm not 100% certain about internet access but I am hoping to share photos on here too if you don't have an IG account)
As ever if you do read the book I would appreciate it if you could leave me a review on Amazon and tell your friends and thank you to all those who have supported me so far. I really appreciate it!
But for now...I'm headed back to Brantome.
