I’m so sorry that I’ve been quiet. The trouble is that I have big news to share but I can’t do it just yet so I’ve been waiting. But I’m bored with waiting now so I’m back and you will all just have to wait patiently with me!

So in the meantime, it’s business as usual around here. I’ve been busy all summer working on what I hope will be my third novel. I think I’m nearly there with the first draft but I just have one character who is not behaving herself and who I must snap into line before I start to think that I have the bones of something worthwhile.

Also, November is more hectic than usual for some writers as it’s Nanowrimo time. For the uninitiated ( which I assume is most of the planet) Nano, as it is affectionally known, is where you attempt to write a novel (or the first 50,000 words in any event) during the thirty days of November. It’s a tall order and requires focus and determination but I love the challenge and the buzz.

This year, rather than starting a new project, I am using my Nano month to finish the novel that I mentioned above so I’m desperately hoping that the new idea re troublesome character lands some time over the next two days or I’m going to be wasting valuable writing time thinking about her future!

Postcards is still doing well. It has been sitting in the Top 100 of the Amazon Kindle store for well over a month now and I’ve been getting some lovely reviews from readers. I always love to hear from you so please get in touch if you’d like to.

I haven’t been posting my book reviews recently as they weren’t getting any feedback but I’m still reading so if you’d like those back then please comment below and in the meantime I’ll get back to manuscript. I hope to be back with my big news very soon.

Kind regards,
