Welcome to my blog, Ascroft, eh? I’m Dianne Ascroft, author and freelance writer, and I’ll post here whenever anything relevant (well, in my opinion anyways) crosses my mind – especially anything that relates to my writing.
Are you wondering why I chose ‘Ascroft, eh?’ as the name of this blog? No, well, I’ll tell you anyway…Firstly a name beginning with A can come in useful when it’s included in an alphabetical list – just as well that Ascroft is my surname then, isn’t it?! I also wanted something that would make me easy to find and also convey my heritage. I’ve lived in Britain for nearly two decades but I can’t (and don’t want to) shake my Canadian roots. So I just couldn’t resist throwing in the ‘eh?’
As I’ve mentioned, I’m a writer and I released an historical fiction, ‘Hitler and Mars Bars’ in March. So now I’m telling everyone and anyone who will listen about it. And it just so happens that I have something to tell you about – my first virtual book mini-tour is next week. Here’s a list of the stops on my tour –
August 26 – BCR Pen Pal Reunion blog – www.myspace.com/bcrpenpalreunion Click on the blog on the right hand side of the page to read my stop at this page.
August 27 – live radio interview on the Tony Kay show, 8pm EST (1am UK time) – www.artistfirst.com Click ‘listen live’ to hear the interview live. The archived interview will be available a few days after the live broadcast. I will let you know when it is released.

Hope you will be able to join me on one or more of my stops on the tour.
