30 Minutes Until Release Day, And You Did What?? #writerslife #writersproblems #newrelease

I ‘m a complete nutcase! The evening before release day, I turn my attention to my book cover. My hands took on a mind of their own, and I revamped it!  The last one was the first draft, then I wrote the book and never looked back. I can’t even upload the damn thing, Amazon locked my book for changes, until the official release day. But Here it is!

I love designing stuff and drawing. Clothes, shoes anything goes. One day I’d love to design a whole make-up  and clothing range… as well as book covers.  It’s almost release day!! Well In the UK anyway, it’s  nearly midnight.

I’ve signed up to #NaNoWriMo. Can I write 25,000 words in July & complete book #3 of my Romance Set In Paradise series?? #amwriting #romancenovels

nwm.pngThank you fellow author Kristina Stanley for posting her sign up! You reminded me about Camp NANOWRIMO (that’s national novel writing month). I joined in last year also. This is my second time. If you’re an author/ writer will you also sign up? And try to pen a short novella or finish off your current one in July?

 Book #2 is released in July. My goal is to write book #3 of my Romance Set in Paradise Series  In July. I cooked up my idea for the story over the weekend, something just came to me for the next stand along story.  I noted it down in my notebook as always and thought I’ll come back to this story for book #3. As the Romance Series is short novella length books, my goal is about 25,000 words max to write in July. Could be less but around  25,000 that is a good length for short stories. (if you’re a novel writer) this seems short!

Good luck if you join in. Leave me a comment if you do, I’d love to connect with fellow participants again this year.

Guest Author Over @ Author Jane Risdon’s Blog. #author #writerslife #writingtips

I had a lovely time as Author Jane Risdon’s guest  this week.  She made me feel very welcome. She asked me a lot about my experience with traditional and self-publishing, and what tips I’d give to writers who shy away from using a multi-cultural line up for the characters.

Havana Heat is Complete: New Release Date 12/5/17 #romance #amreading #newrelease

Good morning from a sun kissed London!

Today is set to be the hottest day of the year so far across the UK’s capital, and of course I’m thrilled. I’m not basking in the powerful heat of the Caribbean, but London will do for now. As of 3:00 a.m this morning my next romance novella Havana Heat is complete! I had a burst of creative stamina, which took me through until an ungodly hour writing. But I am on a massive high I finished writing before my deadline. Which means a new earlier release date 12th May 2017 on Amazon, Smashwords, Barnes and Noble, Apple ibooks and many more platforms! Later on tonight, I will crack on with book #2 of #4 of my Romance in Paradise series. I hope to release book #2 shortly after Havana Heat. Your summer romantic, suspenseful and steamy reads are on their way!

Cover Reveal!: Romance in Paradise- Havana Heat. Release Date 18/5/17. #amwriting #romance #newrelease

Hello!

I’ve been quiet I know, no writing prompts, short stories or poems blogged. I have been dormant. But never mind me, behind the scene I’ve been tapping away at my keyboard since my return from France. I’m (very) please to share with you the cover for my next romance novella.  Book one of a series I’ve been working on called Romance in Paradise . Romance in Paradise is a series of four modern, romantic, suspenseful and steamy stories set in some of the most exotic locations around the world. Book one is Havana Heat, set in Cuba in the Caribbean… writing this book and brainstorming for the others has put me in the mood to sip some rum on a beach somewhere hot, I’m loving the research and writing  needed to transport readers into a slice of paradise. A free chapter download will follow shortly, stay tuned to the blog…Your summer romance reads are on their way!
