A New Blog

Ok, well ... time to move on.

My site has been updated and my new blog is now here.

I tried to do my blogroll one blog at a time (don't ask!), so I'm sure to have missed someone I love dearly. Many apologies in advance! If you link to me and I'm not linking back, do let me know.

If you can update all links to me, that would be wonderful. But, really, I'll just be happy to see some of you over there. Here's the RSS feed for those who want it (do I sound like I know what I'm doing?).

I'll post my competition winner on my new blog in the next few days.

It feels a bit sad leaving here.

A freebie and the 'Tales of the Road' campaign

As a farewell to this blog I've a freebie giveaway, courtesy of the kind people at Halfords and in support of Digital Outlook.

Summer is here and my children are out and about more, so I'm offering this blog post in support of the DfT’s ‘Tales of The Road’ campaign.

You might have already seen in cinemas or in the ‘Jazzy Books’ handouts at school, the story of ‘the boy who didn’t find a safe place to cross’. It stresses the importance of children crossing the road at a point where cars can see them. You can see the ad here

The ‘Tales of the Road’ website has been updated with a new game. And they've added a new section which focuses on ‘Cycle Safety’.

Road safety is such an important issue for parents and children and I'm keen to help to spread the word.

So, today I'm offering one lucky blog friend the chance to win this Power Ranger themed cycle kit:

(helmet, bell, drinks bottle and gloves)

(It can be for you or for any Power Ranger fan that you may know)

All you have to do is post 'pick me' into this blog post's comments by 3pm Saturday 20 June.

And I'll draw a name out of a mug next Sunday.

And for those of you with girls, you can check out lovely friend DJ's blog today (on June 14) (and I think at Jo's blog some time soon) for the chance to win a Bratz themed cycle kit.

Oh do enter, go on, go on, go on.

Moving on

I know that some of you have worried - sorry for disappearing without explaining.

After almost 3 years of blogging here, I've decided that it's time to move on. The In Search of Adam blog name feels out of date as I'm heading towards my fourth novel. There are other reasons too, but it's easiest to say that I guess sometimes change is for the best.

I'll post on here in a few days, when I've set up my new site and blog. I really hope that some of you will follow me there.

It'd be lonely without you.
