Smorgasbord Blog Magazine Weekly Round Up 1st – 7th November 2020 -Interviews, Streisand, War Poets, Short stories, Reviews, Books and funnies

Welcome to the round up of post that you might have missed this week on Smorgasbord..

Well this week has certainly been a rollercoaster ride. Televisions around the world have been overheating and the screens shouted at as the American Election took place and lockdowns and further restrictions were announced to try and harness the rampaging virus. So many lives in the balance for one reason or another and after months of this, it would be really amazing if next week starts to see a de-escalation of hostilities on all fronts.

All we can do is watch and stay safe.

It has been the usual week here on Smorgasbord, but I did get out and about earlier in the week for an interview which was great fun and did me the power of good. A link to that post further down the page.

I am also working on the Christmas promotions. I will be starting the Christmas Book Fair in a couple of weeks as I will be featuring all current authors in the Cafe and Bookstore and in the Children’s Cafe too and that will take several weeks.

William Price King will be sharing some wonderful international carols in two special posts in December. And I am planning on having a Christmas Tea Party for bloggers and authors closer to the holidays.

All the regular posts will be featured with plenty of music and funnies.

I hope that gives you something to look forward to and that you will join us when you can.

Time for the posts from the week and as always my thanks to William Price King and Debby Gies who are this week’s contributors, and to you for all your support.

This week I was delighted to be the guest of author Marcia Meara...

  1. Reblogged this on The Write Stuff and commented:
    Another great week over on Sally Cronin’s Smorgasbord, filled with all kinds of goodies, including her stop by The Write Stuff last Tuesday! Always fun to check out this wonderful weekly recap, and when you’re done, hope you’ll share it far and wide for others to enjoy, too. Thanks, and thanks to Sally for letting me be a part of it all this week! 🙂 ❤

  2. Another fabulous week. It’s true, Christmas is quickly approaching. I don’t want to think of what it will look like this year, but I’m not a very Christmassy person, so I guess I shouldn’t complain. Thanks for all your hard work, Sally. Stay well.

  3. It’s a lot of planning and a lot of work for Christmas, Sally. We have so much to look forward to. I just want to thank you for the festivity in advance. Thank God the election is over. I was so nervous at one point and couldn’t believe the votes. Now I pray that the pressing agenda of the task force for the Coronavirus will get underway soon. It’s going to take the vaccine to overcome the monster. It won’t die down by itself. Have a wonderful week!

    • The festivities will go ahead as usual here Miriam.. not going to let anything stand in the way of that.. and yes thank goodness the election is over and hopefully a certain someone will leave with whatever grace and dignity he can muster. As to the Coronovirus the new vaccine looks promising. It will be a while I am sure before it reaches Ireland but the world seems to be pulling together on getting it stopped.. Enjoy your week too..hugsxx
