I've always used Facebook to share where I'm at with writing stuff, but my ability to reach those who follow my author page is decreasing every day. Frustrating! I then came across an author who said they put their newsletter on their website rather than emailing it out, so I thought if a newsletter can go on a website, then so too can the posts I would normally put on Facebook. So here it is - my non-Facebook update page.
So, the current status.
I'm well into writing my next novel. This one I kind-of wrote last year, but I wasn't happy with how it went. I couldn't leave it - or at least the characters - so after a long time thinking it over I started writing it again. I've kept the two main characters, changed the female lead's job, and also kept the same crime. The rest is new. And I tell you what, this time it's flowing and I'm enjoying the story! I'm really glad I decided to rewrite it. This story is not part of either series I've written so far, and yes, I'm planning this book to be the start of a new series. There is a slight cross over - a minor character from one of my other series is in this book, and other characters make a tiny appearance (I can't wait to see if anyone picks it up!).
The plan at the moment is to finish the draft mid-November at the latest and have it edited and to my beta readers for Christmas. All being well I should have it launched in March or early April.
