My favourite Raison Muffin from Simit Sarayi Bakery.

I love raison muffins the same way I love cinnamon buns. To be frank, I love most bakery products -yum! Simit Sarayi is a Turkish bakery with branches all over world - some are franchises , BUT my favourite branch in the one on Southhampton Row, WC1.

The staff are so welcoming and friendly. Always nice and smiley which isn't the easiest thing to do on  grim rainy London mornings, afternoons or evening.  I've been to other branches before but this is my favourite one. I even introduced a former colleague to them. So its not really about brand but rather the people behind the counter.

The muffins - the main reason for this blog - are delicious. Juice raisons and a delicious baked muffin.  It doesn't taste chemically like shop bought ones, you know the shop bought ones that taste like there is too much baking powder or baking soda in the next. Or maybe the stuff to keep it longer on the shelf.

 Then the ones that taste like they have too much flour with nothing else. This muffin is delicious! And a bit pricy at £2.40. Sure you can get about 5 shop bought muffins for the price, but the  Simit Sarayi's raison muffin is worth the treat. It's an occasional treat.

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.
