OK, so I’m like twenty days too late! But here I am wishing all of you wonderful people a happy new year. I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas and an exciting, positive start to 2017. Me? Well yes, I had a nice Christmas … but I was admitted to hospital! That said I enjoyed it the best I could, I’m now recovered and back to my full health. New year, for me was a nice reflective time. I actually read back over the last four years of journals I wrote. One dated back to a thirty year old pregnant me – that was an interesting read. The whole reflection really put me in a good place to move into 2017.
If you’ve read my blog for some time, you’ll know I’m a very goals and dreams kinda gal, I like to have them and encourage others to as well. Of course this year my goal focused around writing is to complete my thriller novel I’m writing, submit to the publisher who requested to see the full manuscript then hopefully get that bad boy published in 2017. The other day, a few short romance story ideas “came to me” as well, so I noted them down and at some point, I hope to put together a short collection of romance stories in one novella… Watch this space. My second goal, is to return to writing prompts and blogging, last year I blogged the hell out of writing prompts! I LOVE them, you all know this ( most of you) so I will make a creative comeback also with writing prompts this year. I fell off a little last year due to juggling life outside of writing.
So, what’s coming your way in February? Well, I’m pleased to say that the writing project I took part in, (I wrote a short story for a book with fifteen other authors) is now on pre-sale and available from Amazon in the USA and UK. The release date, if I remember correctly is the 9th of February. Here is the link below if you want to check it out. You’ll find sixteen stories in a variety of genres, all of us responded to a writing prompt “Code Redhead”. All sales proceeds will go to a children’s charity in the USA, it feels great to be part of this.
The story by yours truly is of course, a modern day romantic story that crosses over to a little erotica. *face palm* * raise eyebrows* now you know how I feel about writing erotica??? You don’t remember? Read about that in a writing prompt I done last year here click this link I came a little out of my comfort zone, and had some fun with this charity story. And of course it is based in my home town.. London!
