Old Fool’s Blog – My baby is born

I feel as though I’ve given birth to an elephant. I’m exhausted. In the very early hours of the morning of Friday, 25th of July, 2014, after a long painful labour, Two Old Fools in Spain Again was born, weighing just one pound. That’s the paperback, of course, the Kindle edition weighs nothing at all.

It appeared on Amazon and has been popping up on other platforms like Nook, Apple, Kobo and Scribd ever since. It’s the 4th in the series but that doesn’t stop me being just as excited as when each of my other babies was born. That feeling never seems to wear off.

Spain Again blurb


Thank you to my loyal readers, you overwhelm me. Within 24 hours, Spain Again reached the #1 spot in the Spain category of Amazon, top 10 in Memoirs, and was in the top 500 out of MILLIONS of books. That is awesome. Even more awesome, readers have started leaving reviews already, so I’ve quit worrying that people won’t like this latest book.

I have vowed never to write another book as this one took nearly two years of worry,  gallons of coffee and barrels of midnight oil. Famous last words. From past experience, I know that my fingers will soon itch to bash out another few chapters in the Old Fools’ saga.

  • I stayed up really late last night to finish reading it, Victoria, you do not disappoint! I walk the village with you, visit Carmen and Paco and was so sad when xxSPOILER ALERTxx. El Señor xxSPOILER ALERTxx is a surprising twist and I love it. I know you say you will never write another, but please do after a long rest! I laughed and sighed and enjoyed every page I turned. Thank you for the glimpse of life in a village in Spain, Blessing, Rosalie

    • Thank you, Rosalie. I always say I’ll never write another! I did that after Chickens, then again with Ole, and Camel. So there’s a very distinct possibility that another will come along someday… 🙂

  • Vicky, rest up as we don’t want you burned out so we can look forward to another book down the road
    We love you

  • I am an American who has spent the last year and a half in France. I discovered your books a few months ago and have loved reading them! I am hoping you will heal from book writer’s burn out and continue your series… I have truly enjoyed reading your books!

    • Thank you, Beth! Yes, I recovered from ‘Writers’ Burnout’ very quickly and have almost finished the Old Fool’s prequel, and also have Two Old Fools Down Under planned, so you haven’t heard the last from me yet… 🙂
