The Yellow Wallpaper

I’m blown away by the latest review of The Jazz Files on Day 5 of Poppy’s blog tour. This reviewer has seen things in the book – things I’ve layered deep into the text – that (so far) no other reviewer has seen. I’m delighted! You can read the review here.

The Yellow Wallpaper which she refers to is a short story by the feminist writer Charlotte Perkins Gilman who wrote the story in light of her own post natal depression in which a woman imagines someone crawling behind the wallpaper in her convalescent room. It is a powerful story of insanity that could have been prevented if women and their ‘problems’ were treated differently. You can read it for free on the Project Gutenberg website.

Jazz Files on tour

I’m going on tour with The Jazz Files! But this time I don’t have to worry about forgetting my underwear (which friends will know I’m notorious for!) It’s a blog tour, starting today on Whispering Stories. The rest of the tour is listed below. I do hope to bump into some of you on my travels :)

Fiona goes to Hollywood!

Well, Darlington actually, to shoot the video promo of The Jazz Files. Now after 3 months of work I can reveal all of 58 seconds of film! Make sure your sound is switched on. Enjoy :)
