There’s been a bit happening in my writing world at the moment so I thought I'd fill you in.
The next book for release has been critiqued by my beta readers and is now with my editor. The image for the cover has been chosen, the blurb has been drafted, and I’m hoping to be able to announce a release date soon!
It’s now only two months until the big trip! So many of the destinations are wrapped up in my stories that it will be an emotional time, and an exciting one. I plan to post on my blog while I’m away, and there will be heaps of story-related photos too. I’ll be putting an itinerary of the book related places I’ll be visiting up on my blog before I leave.
Work on a new book is progressing sporadically. It’s frustrating – I get a load of words down and then something happens (like getting a head cold) that stops me from being productive. It is coming along though – I’m about a third the way through writing it. I’m loving taking my characters through an adventure. Some of them are showing me new things about themselves, and some are pushing their way forward for more attention. It’s a wonderful process and I’m thoroughly enjoying it.
While I’m working on that story, I’ve also started planning the first book of a new series. At the moment I think there will be three books in total. Early days yet. I hope to start writing the first book over Christmas. That’s always assuming I don’t choose to do one of the many others I want to write. So many ideas!
That’s it for now. Don’t forget – if you want to hear the big announcements before anyone else, sign up to get them delivered to your email.
