Happy Christmas – I’m British

xmasI’d like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy Christmas. In the UK we use this term for friends and loved ones. Merry Christmas and Season’s Greetings are also used.

What we don’t say is, Happy Holidays. This is left to our friends across the pond. However, I do wish you all Happy Holidays, a Merry Happy Christmas with Season’s Greetings and An extremely Happy New Year.

I hope to become a member of the Romance Novelist Association in 2015 and this means ensuring my email gets out at the stroke of midnight New Year’s Eve as there are only 250 places for new writer memberships. DH has gifted me the subscription if I am successful with my application. What an exciting prospect this will be for me, to attend RNA meetings and increase my presence within the romance novel world of authors.

I do hope all your dreams come true.

Thank you, thank you, for your ongoing support of this site, my books and the Virtual Bookcase. Now go, enjoy the season to be jolly! See you next year ♥


About Glynis Smy

I live in the UK, in the seaside town of, Dovercourt~Harwich, where I enjoy writing novels. I've written historical romance/suspense, Medical romance and my latest WIP is in the crime genre. The Victorian era fascinates me and the best part of writing a novel is often the research. Proud writing moments in my life: Shortlisted for Festival of Romance Fiction 2014 New Talent Award Reaching second round of Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award 2014 Maggie's Child: reached #1 Amazon best-seller: Historical Romance Victorian /February 2014/ebook & book paid list. May 2014 #3 Historical Romance Victorian, and #25 in Historical Romance paid top 100 best-seller list. Top 100 in three categories on Amazon UK best-seller listings in 2015. Seeing my books in a Suffolk (UK), library. Over the years I've written short stories in a variety of genres. I've also won a few poetry contests, my first was at the age of twelve, (a poem about the Bangladeshi war). I also won a children's short story competition where the prize was a first-aid box, I was so proud but my husband found it amusing because we owned two pharmacies. My articles have been published in magazines both in the UK and Cyprus. I am also featured in various places on-line. When I am not writing, I enjoy making greetings cards, Cross Stitch, fishing and the company of my little granddaughters.
