Scoring With Sir Has A Cover!

The amazing publishing wizards at Totally Bound aren't just completely fabulous - they've given me the cover of my dreams!

I'm wafting it about like a big diamond cocktail ring. So vury pretty!

And it's inspiring me to get Book Two of Sassy With Sir finished pronto. I really love it. Hope you do too.

NaNo Phew

A week in - I'm just over 20k.

Some days it is comic brilliance (for like...several seconds!) And then some days it's root canal squared without an injection.

However, I will continue to merrily plod. Because words are progress. And each scene brings endeavour. I'm having a jolly good bash.

I'm trotting along with NaNoWriMo. Yes trotting. At quite a speed.

I'm at nearly 9k. In three days.

But - dear reader - it can't last. No. I surely cannot sustain this PACE.

Said the actress to the Bishop.

Sigh. Big big sigh!

NaNo Ahoy!

So - Halloween is gone and NaNoWriMo had started today! Well - I've begun.
It's going to be a rollercoaster. I'm sure of it. Some days great - others not so much.  But I have started. And I aim to kick my behind every day to get the minimum wordage done.
Nano is here - bring it on. Let's do this!

I'm pleased, nay ecstatic, to reveal that I've had fabulous writing news this week. And it doesn't just concern one's a SERIES!!! I know...I'm still on cloud baffled. And planet pinching myself.
But I can't quite reveal all yet.

What is it about socks that they all either get holes in other get lost at the same time?
Today I have bulk bought socks. I have also decided to do Nanowrimo.
Not sure if the two things are related. But there it is.

Submission Waiting

Every writer knows waiting on submission news is the bane of the writer's life. Especially when you're subbing to a new publisher.

Right now I'm going waiting crazy. But trying to channel that into creative productivity. I'm between books but it doesn't mean I can't plan, have ideas, doodle in notepads and have pleasant positive daydreams about my current subs hitting the mark with happy news.

I think as I write this I'm realising I should just get on a start something new. Please bear in mind that since subbing my first novel I've written and subbed another novella.

So - time to crack fingers and crack on!

So that's me currently - ploughing on. With a positive mindset.

What do you guys do to make the waiting easier? I'd love to know.

Back to School

The kidlets are back to school. Bless them.

Which means I get some fabulous time to write - write, write, write like the wind.

It feels indulgent and naughty. It shouldn't. It's what I need to do. I've something that needs to be finished soon.

So back to the keyboard.

As you were. :)

P.S. Why is it that as soon as I have a submission out, I immediately get a massive attack of the mega impatient and can't wait to hears? It's truly not good. Must be more mindful and meditate. Submission angst be gone!

Less Writing. More Cats

It's been a while since I've been here. The last two years saw me take a writing break. However I'm back writing again. And that makes me happy.

So I thought I'd show you what's been keeping me busy during 2014/2015.Her name is Izzy and here she is when newly arrived. And again more recently after an unexpected cat hernia op. She's fabulous! If only she didn't claim my lap and laptop!
