If I had a neon sign above my head that showed what I was doing it at the moment, it would flash WRITING! WRITING! WRITING! (in capital letters so you’d know how very important that was.)
Since most of my time has been taken up with said ‘WRITING! WRITING! WRITING!’ I haven’t been on this site, Twitter, Facebook, my local high street very much at all. I’ve mostly been tucked up in bed (‘my office’ as my OH affectionately calls it while removing a stack of research books from his pillow), immersed in the new world I’m creating. It’s a bit odd being so shut off from the world, but, this is what I do, this is what I love, so I can’t really complain.
The new book is called The Rose Petal Beach and is out in the autumn (the trailer’s on the home page). I’m very excited about it – I always am about a new book, let’s be honest – but I’m especially excited about this one as it’s the first book to be released by my new publishers Quercus.
Everything is changing and as I think I’ve said before, I’m not a fan of change, but I almost always embrace it and it’s almost always for the best. So while I’m not its biggest fan, I do appreciate change in my life. Lots of other things will be changing in the coming months, so I’ll try to keep you informed when I can tear myself away from my newest set of characters.
Hope all is good with all of you.
