I just pressed ‘send’ on Healer Moon

I’m all nervous and fluttery. I’ve just done that hugely difficult thing – pressed ‘send’ to my editors and agent on the novel I’ve been working on for the past year. Blood sweat and tears (both mine and my fabulous critique group – thanks especially to Marnie, my Beta reader on this one) has gone into writing and redrafting and … Read More

Release day for Dark Moon

Today is the day I’ve slaved so hard for – the release day of Dark Moon. Big thanks go to so many people (family, friends, writing groups and critique partners) but especially on this day to my editors at Penguin’s Destiny Romance and my agent, Alex Adsett, who took a chance on it and me and saw something special. I … Read More

The Writer’s Hot Seat

I was tagged last week by the fabulously talented Jennifer St George and then on the same day there was another tag by another wonderful fellow RWA author, Heather Garside in this series of rolling blogs where I’m asked to talk about my writing – I feel very popular!

So here it is – my first ever published urban paranormal, the first in my Witch-Were Chronicles.  It will be out on March 15th. Enjoy.

Dark Moon Cover Revealed

I know I already blogged today, but I couldn’t sit on this until tomorrow. I just got my cover for Dark Moon from my agent, Alex Adsett, and I’m really excited about it. I love the movie poster feel. It’s so dramatic. What do you think?

Weather Blues

It is a blustery, wild, grey day outside. Even in those moments of sunshine breaking through, the clouds are so grey and foreboding, like something out of an old movie, Hitchcock or maybe Rebecca, that it is making feel all moody and forlorn. I should be doing some more work on the next novel in my new series, the Witch-Were … Read More

Reflections

It’s true what they say – what a difference a day makes. Except, I’d change that to say, What a difference a year makes. I’ve read a bunch of blogs reflecting on the last year: reflecting on what they’d learned; looking at whether predictions they’d made about themselves, friends, family, their aspirations, their jobs, the world in general had come … Read More

Prioritising – how do you know when enough is enough?

I’ve just read this great post on Kristen Lamb’s blog about prioritising. She uses a great a great analogy about reaping and sowing that I won’t repeat here – if you’re interested, check out the brilliance directly here: http://warriorwriters.wordpress.com/2013/11/05/author-success-the-laws-of-sowing-reaping I know for my own part I often struggle with prioritising. People think I’m so organised, but to use a swimming … Read More

I’m really excited to say I have the wonderfully talented and incredibly prolific (Nora Roberts – watch out!) Elise K Ackers as a guest on my blog tonight. Elise and I met earlier on this year as we are both authors with Destiny Romance. I was thrilled to find out that there are quite a few of us based in … Read More

RWA Conference – here I come!

I’m heading off to the Romance Writers of Australia annual conference tomorrow morning with my dear friend, Marnie (a talented writer from one of my writing groups who has taken this year off to write and is going to pitch pitch pitch at the conference. Lots of fingers crossed for Marnie. 🙂 I, like many other romance writers, look forward … Read More
