THE DAY WE DISAPPEARED . . . Has appeared.

It’s here! The Day We Disappeared didn’t disappear at all! Instead it arrived in great piles on bookshelves; it fell through letter boxes and downloaded into peoples’ e-readers and kept people up until the wee hours. (Which, as any writer will tell you, is a win.) IT HAS APPEARED EVERYWHERE. The wait is over! BUT THE FUN TOTALLY DOES NOT END THERE. I am thrilled – and I mean, SUPER-thrilled- to announce that we have paired up with the brilliant daily fashion and culture email, Emerald Street and the jaw-droppingly fabulous Lulu Guinness brand – home to unique and beautiful … Continue reading

Breaking news: my fourth novel!

 Day We Disappeared  FINAL JACKET

Dearest Readers, Blimey. What a summer! I have been working like an absolute mad one, which is why you’ve not heard so much from me on the blog and interweb. But the end result is my new novel, about which I am incredibly excited to be – finally – sharing details. It’s my most ambitious yet and at times drove me mad. But I’m very happy I ploughed on because the result is, hopefully, a big, brave, dark, funny and uplifting story. That was the plan, anyway. It’s definitely a step forward for Lucy Robinson. You can expect the usual … Continue reading

Where the feck is Robinson?

 Lucy Robinson - COPYRIGHT EVA BELL PHOTOGRAPHY

No blog for months! Hardly any tweets! Sub-standard facebooking! Where the feck is Lucy Robinson? She’s here, just. It’s been a mad few months, and the madness continues. It will continue until mid-November at which point I am going to sit on a Greek Island for several months and nobody will stop me. Not even The Man. He can come, if he likes (I hope he does) but if he doesn’t then I shall just have to get it on with Nykos or Stavros or basically anyone who will have me. (Nobody will have me. I’m wrecked.) My lovely novel The … Continue reading

Morning all! HAPPY MONDAY. So, I explained here why I’m not doing my Life I Love blog for a short while. Here, following on from where I left off on Friday, is my third Argentina blog. It’s the one where I sort of got a date with a bloke called Paul. http://lucy-robinson.co.uk/romance-fewer-options/

Life I Love: Vintage Robinson in Argentina

 photo (56)

I’m struggling to find time to upload my daily Life I Love blog at the moment. I’m still making sure I take note of all the things that make me smile, but the small matter of having, erm, FIFTY THOUSAND WORDS TO WRITE IN SIX WEEKS, plus a fuck-load of quite serious plot wrangling, is impeding my ability to share such moments with you. Sorry. So, in the interim, I have decided to introduce you (or re-introduce the die-hards amongst you) to my early blogs from Argentina. I lived there for a year starting June 2010 and had the very … Continue reading

Life I love: Katie and Kim’s Kitchen

 20140704-170154-61314872.jpg

A cafe opened at the end of my road recently. I knew I was going to like it. Possibly because it’s an unpretentious looking place with not a stupid cupcake in site, possibly because when I finally made it there the other day they were closed for a week because they’d gone to Glastonbury. My kind of girls. There was a huge picture of the two of them in the window, loaded up and ready to go to the festival, one wearing knickers and sturdy boots. Even better. These are not the kind of ladies to be found standing at … Continue reading

Facing my fears

Firstly: Welcome to the final blog post of my little tour for The Unfinished Symphony of You and Me. It’s been a WEEK! Thanks to Victoria, Laura, Eve, Kirsty, Chloe and Kevin  for having me. So. My final post. I wrote it last Friday so it’d be all ready for posting today. I thought I’d nailed it. Only I hadn’t. The post was meant to act as a finale to my blog tour, in which me and my book characters talked about things they were afraid of. Today there was going to be a video of me facing a fear … Continue reading
