Prefab-ulous Post and Happy News Year

No, the 'Happy NewS Year isn't a mistake. I'd like to wish all my blog readers (if you haven't all deserted me because it's been soo long since I posted) a Happy New Year and to tell you my news.

The above artwork is painted by David Young, the fantastic illustrator who has illustrated all my People's Friend's stories which are set in my imaginary prefab village. The one above illustrated "The Lucky Sixpence"  in the issue dated January 12th 2013.

There'll be another story about the folk in Broome Park prefab village in February (it's a Valentine's Day story). I'll post the illustration for that one nearer the time.

There's a lovely short video about people who still live in prefabs and, sadly, a lot of them are losing their lovely homes. You can see the video and read all about it here:

The People's Friend Facebook page is a great place to visit for a chatter and to find out what's happening in the magazine and to readers, writers and illustrators as well. The NEWS part is, there are new friends joining every day. So, what are you waiting for?   Come and join in:

People's Friend website and blog is newsy, too, and you get a sneak peek of the next issue every Tuesday.

The illustrators on People's Friend really are brilliant. Lovely nostalgic artwork. It's no wonder you are so pleased, Pat.

It's a lovely illustration for a lovely story, Pat. I really enjoy your tales about the prefab folk :-) x

I was so pleased to see another story about the prefab people. They are starting to feel like friends and neighbours to me now, Pat.
It pulled at my heart when I read little Ruth's wish on the silver sixpence.

It's Edward
We went to see my grandma the one called Maisie like in a story you wrote. She red a new one about the prefab houses and said it was ever so good. Will you write some more

A lovely illustration, no wonder you're pleased.

I look forward to watching the video about people still living in prefabs as soon as I get home from work. Thanks for the link.

A lovely illustration,Pat - very evocative. And now we know where you've been hiding : writing more PF stories!
Keep writing...

Rena, I always think the fantastic illustrations add to the thrill of seeing the stories published.

The covers on the novellas are always great, too.

Pat Posner said...

Aww, thank you, Teresa! I really enjoy writing them!

Pat Posner said...

Hello, Beryl
Thank you for visiting again - and thank you for such lovely comments.

I hope you'll enjoy the Valentine story, too.

Hi, Gail
Thank you for calling.
I hope you enjoy the Valentine story. I'm sure you'll like the illustration; it's gorgeous.

Pat Posner said...

Great to see you, Flowerpot. Hope all is well with you and Molls and puss xx

Pat Posner said...

Hello again, Edward
I bet your Grandma enjoys your visits! Please tell her I'm glad she enjoys my prefab stories. And, yes, I will be writing some more.

Pat Posner said...

Hi, Debs
Hope you managed to watch the video.

Pat Posner said...

Hi, Lilian
Hmm, have I been hiding? Didn't mean to. But, yes, I have been writing more stories for PF.
Erm are you RH, too?

Rebecca Holmes said...

I meant as in hiding in the blog, Pat. And, yes, I am RH. Am I down as that on here? Oops... Shows how long it is since I commented on any blogs. Must get more organised. :-/
