Welcome to the round up of posts you might have missed over the last week.
It has been summer here this week and like many of you very high temperatures. Even I have had to wait until early evening to sit out but that has been lovely.. Australia however has been enduring the lowest temperatures for a very long time with – 4 expected in the Sydney region.. That is cold for Australia. Certainly the weather is very unpredictable at the moment.
A few things going on at the moment and here is an opportunity for poets and flash fiction writers from Judith Barrow and here is her facebook link to DM her if you are interested..Judith Barrow Author
“Hi Everyone, I’m putting feelers out for poetry readings ( your own work ,any subject) and a hundred word flash fiction pieces (subject “Harvest”) for an online festival to be held by Showboat in September. Showboat is an online TV company I sometimes volunteer at. It would be on Zoom and pre-recorded in a couple of weeks’ time. You’d be dealing directly with them, but I said I would ask those of you I know here. Anyone interested can DM me on FB and I will pass on your details and what you would like to do. It would be a great place to showcase your writing” Judith Barrow Author
I have been out and about this week with the lovely Marcia Meara, who has a series running ‘Ten things you may not know about me’ and if you have not seen the post you might like to pop over to discover a few more of my quirks and past shenanigans.

I have also released my latest poetry collection this week. The 50+ poems have accumulated over the last year, with some that share memories of my childhood and teen years lying in a drawer for many moons. I have a number of writing projects on the go at the moment but I felt the need to finish one and get it out there.. I must admit I did take a screenshot of my orange flag #1 release in poetry and nature… I am sure fleeting but a little boost.
You can find out more about the collection here: #Poetry – Life is Like a Mosaic: Random Fragments in Harmony by Sally Cronin
This week I have uploaded the audio for some of my current and previous reviews plus my new book promotion as an example as I will be adding new books in the Cafe and Bookstore to the podcast menu soon.
Also a Short Story from Flights of Fancy – The Psychic Parrot.

William Price King is on his summer break until September with grandchildren but he has left his selections for the Breakfast Show and sends his best wishes. This week D.G. Kaye, Debby Gies is back with a new Realms of Relationships about Kindred Spirits who enter our lives at times when they are needed most. On Friday Daniel Kemp added his special brand of humour to the Laughter Lines.
My thanks to William, Debby and Danny for their wonderful contributions and to you for your support during the week..
