Boldwood Books will ask you for your chosen hedgehog name. It might be that you want to name him/her after yourself, a friend or family member. It might be that you choose the name of a family pet. Or you might get creative.

There are a few suggestions we won’t be able to accept:

  • Any swear words/racism/sexism or anything along those lines that is inappropriate
  • A hedgehog name that is already used in the first book – Finding Love at Hedgehog Hollow – but there are only six names used: Spike, Spikette, Sonic, Mrs Tiggywinkle, Mr Snuffles and Quilly
  • A name that matches any of the characters in the first or second book as it would be confusing to have a person and a hedgehog with the same name!

I’m editing this book at the moment and have a part of the story saved where I will slot in the name of the chosen hedgehog so I can’t wait to hear what’s picked.

We have a name for the second (and third) book but they’re being kept under wraps for the moment. The cover for book 2 should be revealed next month but the editing process will be ongoing so the book won’t actually be ready for print for some time yet but a copy will be put aside with your name on it (and your hedgehog’s name in it!) as soon as it is.

You can read the full T&Cs here: https://www.boldwoodbooks.com/competition-terms-conditions/

Good luck!

What’s on my wall (Part 3)? Motivation Monday

Happy Birthday Alice

Hello and welcome to another fresh week and also a fresh month. For #MotivationMonday, I bring you a picture today rather than a saying. This large canvas is on my wall right above my computer screen and I absolutely love it.

I bought it from Next Home several years ago because it’s a coastal image and because I loved the calming colours. It’s such a happy picture and looking at it instantly transports me into the seaside setting of my Whitsborough Bay books.

Scarborough’s beach huts on North Bay

It doesn’t look like Whitsborough Bay, though.

There is a pier leading to Whitsborough Bay’s lighthouse but it’s nothing like this traditional-style one; it’s large rocks with a path across the top.

And the beach huts in Whitsborough Bay are an exact match for Scarborough’s bright orange, blue, yellow, red and lime green ones rather than pastels like in this canvas.

But the feel is still there and I find it inspiring. Wishing you an inspiring start to the week and the month.

Big hugs
