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! Thanks ladies for thinking of me and including me in this … Read More

DARK MOON

I revealed my new cover the other day and now I have my lovely official blurb for my novel.

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?

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’ve had a really unusual weekend for me this weekend – I’ve actually been out for dinner on Friday and out for lunch today and neither of them were with family or for a family thing. I was out with friends. It’s not that I don’t get out, but it’s not something that happens a lot and for it to … 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.
