Red Kite - back cover blurb

Since deciding to release my novel 'Red Kite' onto kindle next year, I have re-gained my inspiration and learned so much in just a short space of time.

I visited the red kite feeding centre the other day and managed to capture these stunning birds on camera. The wonderful thing was that it gave me some fresh ideas to add to my story and breathe new life into it. I felt like I was watching them at times through the eyes of my central character so now hope that I can add some reality to a couple of the scenes that were written several years ago.

I am working on the back page blurb at the moment. This is something that I have found quite difficult, just like the synopsis, it's hard to sum up a story in a few words and I have already made a dozen attempts without a decent result so far. However, I will continue to work on it until I am satisfied and then hope to post it on this blog for comments (when I feel brave enough!)

I realise that I have a long way to go and so much more to learn. It has to be just right before I make the final decision to release it but that will hopefully come with the editing process. It may take some time but I hope eventually, I will get there.


  1. Hi Diane,
    Lovely to see the Red Kite back where it should be, filling our skies and our hearts!
    I would love to check out your book, but don`t have one of these new-fangled Kindle things, are you going to release it in paper form?

  2. Hello John, I hope to eventually publish on lulu as well. Thank you for your support and I will keep everyone informed. They are magical birds and I have got so much inspiration from watching and reading about them.
    Best wishes

  3. Thanks Simon, they were so difficult to capture as they move so fast, took hundreds of the sky!
