Daily Writing Journal: My London Hood - Sunset at Hyde Park, then to Green Park - Fortnum & Mason's Window Display #FortnumsXHeinz

Hyde Park at Sundown/sunset
London Hyde Park at Sundown/sunset
I took this picture in Hyde Park, a few days ago.  I had a meeting in South Kensington, rather posh area of town. After the meeting, I was walking down to Hyde Park Corner - I love London open spaces and parks so whenever I have access to one, I'd rather walk than talk transport.

It was such a lovely vibrant evening that I decided to walk down Green Park and catch my train from Piccadilly Cirrus rather than Hyde Park Corner - this is our Underground transport system - a bit like a metro or transit system.

I passed a famous shop called Fortnum and Mason and it's window display it was advertising Heinz's baked beans and the Heinz's 150 year old Anniversary. There is even a hashtag #FortnumsXHeinz.  I didn't go in because it was rush hour and all I wanted to do was go home.

Apparently Fortnum and Mason was the first place that sold the brand back in the day. This was before common folks could afford to eat baked beans. I'm not a big Heinz baked beans fan, it's rather too savoury for me and I have sweet tooth. I much prefer Sainsbury's baked beans. This isn't to do with cost or anything it's just I prefer the taste and consistency but I know ride or die Heinz baked beans fans. A former colleague was one. It's a bit like people with their tea or coffee - I'm not brand loyal with that either.


 Quite interesting to know common place foods like chocolate, tea, coffee, baked beans were only for the super-rich when they first came out.

My African American & Black Love Romance Adventure Nearly Ready After Four Years.

Thanks for dropping by and taking the time to read this. This post is going to be about my upcoming black love and African American contemporary romance release, which I think tentatively will be late this year or early 2024. It will be a six-part serialised novel, and I'll reveal the date nearer the time. It has been five years since my last black love romance novel. I have two novellas published on Amazon, and I'm  pleased to finally say, I'm about to publish again. It's been a long time.  I planned to release this book in February 2019, but after a long writer's block and other things, it had taken me this long to complete it.  If you follow this blog on and off, I've spoken about it a lot over the years. I'm thinking maybe I should relabel those blog posts as a series of how it developed.  The Story Description The names have changed well from Angelica to Pippa but it's fine.  Everyone wants someone special but PIPPA MILLER thinks not her. She

Finally I'm getting close to a release date for my urban Black Love African America Romance now Pippa & Leyton

I'm working on a pre-release campaign and it isn't going how I'd like it. However if you have being reading me on and off, you'll know I've been writing some novels-in-progress for the longest times!  I stopped writing about it because it just got EMBARRASSING especially when I planned to release this book in 2019. Yes, five years ago! But it's nearly there.  Leyton & Pippa The heroine started off being called Angelica but I kept on misspelling it so I changed it to Pippa. If you look under the label Angelica & Leyton a lot will come up.  Anyway I'm exciting to say, I'm getting reading for publication soon.  Its going to be a six-part serialised instalment, and I'll have details nearer the time.  Maybe A Six Months Countdown I'm planning between three to six months, however when the details are clear, I'll write a post. I'm also doing an extended blog posts on another blog but I'll keep it short and simple here. 

On holiday And Vacation in Alcudia,Mallorca

I'm on a holiday break in Mallorca, Spain. So this means a I won't be writing the prompt. On holiday, I normally have a break from  the internet though it's difficult nowadays with free WiFi. The hotel is okay. A four star on the lower end of the scale - this means no kettle and renting the safe.   The higher end have more add ons. The room are tiny but functional and nice however in fairness it is a beach holiday destination so I doubt there is much lounging around. Food is okay. Superb beach. Everyone seems laid back and relaxed.
