Fun Friday – Where I talk about writing, editing and why I’ve jinxed the weather.


It’s been a crazy few weeks. Everything seems to have come at once. I’m delighted to say I’ve finished the editing for Halfway Hidden and have now sent it off to be proofed. The cover reveal happened last week, and I was so pleased with everybody’s comments. I really love the design, and was excited to be able to finally share it. To top it all off, I’ve become consumed by a new story that I couldn’t get out of my mind.

With a working title of Unexpected, my latest project is a full-length, New Adult novel. I’m already in love with the characters, and the plot makes my heart race a little. I’m planning on getting it finished by the end of November, ready for editing. For the moment, it is spilling onto the page at a fast rate, and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this continues.

It’s a completely different beast to Halfway Hidden, not only in genre, but also in tone and length. Writing it has taken me out of my comfort zone in a good way, and I’m really looking forward to getting it polished up and out there. I’ll let you know more details as soon as I do.

I’ve also been super-busy at work, as well as doing the usual, mom-type activities with the young’uns, and trying to keep the house from looking like it has a layer of nuclear dust throughout. We have some lovely friends coming to stay this weekend, and I’d rather not clog their airways with dust motes. On the plus side, we’re planning on taking them to London on Saturday. It’s not often that somebody goes to the Big Smog just to get some fresh air, but hey, that’s just the way we roll.

Well, that’s about it for now. I hope you all have an amazing weekend. As we’ll be spending most of it outside, sightseeing, it will almost certainly rain. Have a great one no matter what you do. And thanks for reading.
