The Road To Publishing Update, Turned One Down, But One In The Bag…

coming soon.jpg

Afternoon people!

I  hope you are well,  and enjoyed  a wonderful Halloween and All Saint’s Day, if you celebrate it.  A little update on new releases from me…

For me the end of the year writing wise has  picked up I have been productive while not blogging, one novel completed so far.  I sadly turned down one publisher for Sacrifices ( A romantic story with a historical element, but as always lots of suspense!) as they aren’t for me. So I sent out a few more queries, and pending their responses…which let’s face it takes forever right! I will be patient with this one, I am so tempted to self-publish it but I am being cheered on by family and friends to keep submitting my work. So here goes.

One Publishing Deal In The Bag Thou!…Yassss!

Something so unexpected happened around October’s full Moon (yes, I  am a qualified astrologer too for those that are new! I love it, and it was a ‘lucky Moon’ when I looked at the planet’s positions). Anyway, a publisher across the water who publishes mainly urban fiction approached me,  they asked if I would like to join their new team for 2020. They are establishing themselves  fully and expanding. Now, I am NOT an urban fiction writer in any shape or form…I told them that too and mentioned I may not be the best fit, their response was, “we know you’re not, we want something fresh and for you to be yourself.” I could not believe it. I never thought I’d work with a publisher of this type, let alone someone ask me to join. Purely as I thought I’d never fit in. We negotiated a contract of one book to start with, I signed with them and 2020 I will release one romance title, or possibly a thriller under their label.  I am very excited to write something “Kim’s way” for them.

You only live once right?, something told me “go for it girl, just one book.” So it was a very “lucky full Moon” energy for me indeed. I’ll keep you updated on this release due for the first quarter of 2020,  a story idea actually came to me while I was in the bath LOL.
I remain optimistic about 2020 and what’s ahead, I’l keep pushing with Sacrifices and remain patient for the right agent or publisher.  In the mean time, work on the two works in progress I have, and this idea for the contract I have signed!

Catch up with y’all soon.

Who Is Mr. Clarkson? Excerpt #2! #newrelease #amreading #romance

5:00p.m. James & Clarkson Partnership Manhattan, New York.

 Richard looks forward to tomorrow’s business trip to London. His excitement made him personally organise the hotel reservations, for him and his business partner, rather than have his personal assistant do it. He has not been to London for several years. The city and its vibrancy excite him. The last time he recalls was shortly after his divorce, when he went through his celebrational ‘I’m free and single’ phase. At thirty-nine he is happily divorced, and doesn’t intend on exploring if he can get marriage right a second time. His ex-wife was a handful to say the least. She spent his money faster than it came in, to his surprise the vow of faithfulness was not high on her list of priorities either. Richard has always deep down been a one-woman man, prior to his experience with his ex-wife, he’d look by all means but never touch. Divorce changed him and his willingness to commit, in fear that he’d be taken for a fool again. Three years have passed since he received his divorce papers from his lawyer, women have come and gone.  He has moved forward from his ex-wife emotionally; however, he remains hesitant to trust anyone with his heart or fully commit. Yet he longs for companionship, of late it has felt like a constant catch twenty-two battle, between his logical headstrong attitude and his real wants and desires.

While marriage is off the cards, if he is honest with himself, he would not turn down the chance to spend time with a woman who not only pleases him between the sheets, but also has half a brain. In New York while there is no shortage of beautiful looking women ready and willing to please him, the deeper level of connection just has not happened. For now, he put dating­ –serious dating to one side. He plays the field as and when he feels fit, or lust takes over him.

The last memory he has of London he and fellow shareholder in James and Clarkson Partnership, Dan James, along with a few mutual friends hopped on a flight across the Atlantic to ‘The Big Smoke’ three years ago. The diverse people, the narrow, busy pavements of central London, and most importantly the women are all vivid in his mind. To Richard, there is something alluring about British women, they ooze class, intelligence and style. More than what his ex-wife oozed. Why he had been so blind to marry her is still a mystery to him.

“Excuse me sir, sorry to bother you Mr. James is here to see you.” Richard spins around from the coffee machine to Nina, his personal assistant. Nina is stunning and of Mexican descent. Her mocha skin, delicate features, curvy figure and chestnut brown shoulder length hair, send all the right signals to his lower region. He has a hunch Nina has a ‘thing’ for him, it’s written all over her face. Every time she comes into his office the look she gives him makes it clear.  As he watches her just as closely from across his office, he never fails to notice the extra sway in her hips or undone button at the top of her blouse each morning.

He thought about starting something with her, dinner, a movie, nothing fancy. Dan James his partner warned him off. ‘Don’t fuck with the help.’ Has been his motto for years, he learned his lesson when they were young and just starting out in business. Richard had to manage a female employee who wanted more from him, right after he bent her over his desk and had his way with her.

Richard sighs with lust as his gaze washes over Nina, in a black pant suit with a sharp white fitted shirt tucked in. The curve of her ample breasts strain against the buttons. As she plays with a string of pearls around her neck, his eyes focus on her chest. Richard shakes his head and clears his throat, somehow hoping it would remove his ex-rated thoughts from his mind.

“Sure Nina, send him in.”

“Will do.”

Nina turns on her high heels and sashays out of the room. On cue the extra sway in her hips returns. Richard’s core lights up as he watches through the glass partition how inviting her behind looks, as she moves across the open plan office outside his own. There she goes again, what a prick tease.

My New Release: Exciting News! #amwriting #romance #amreading

coming-soon-1898936_1280

Afternoon all,

It’s dark already and it is only 6:00p.m London time, autumn has truly set in. So, you probably remember I wrote a story for a anthology called Code Redhead- A Serial Novel,  with thirteen other great authors. My old publisher donated the sales revenue to charity for a year, I was thrilled to use my passion to write to help a charity cause and raise money for  cancer, this was in 2016 … remember? Good.  Well I checked my contact and it has expired, I’ve decided not to republish my work as a standalone under them, I now I have my rights back over my work. So what does this mean?… Instead  I will revamp this story a bit then it will be book #1 of another romance series I have in mind. e.g. my new release! As well as my  Romance Set In Paradise series, I want to write a some romance novellas set in cities around the world… more like ‘sin in the city’ to be exact,these stories will be a little steamy. 🙂

I was going to send my work out on query to other publishers and agents, then after some thought I realised  as it has already been published once (and I don’t plan to re-write the whole story I rather like it as it is, I’ll just expand it as the word limit all authors had for the anthology was only 13,000… tiny!) Most publishers won’t republish in this case, as some of it has already been published once… never mind I’m happy to do my own thing! This one will be a self-publish to kick off the series.

Right now, I looking for Beta Readers to add to my list I already have. I wish to send out a draft of this short steamy novella over the next few weeks, once I’ve combed over it, Beta Reader feedback  would be great. If you’d like to Beta Read  a free copy of book #1 of my ‘Sin in The City’ romance series then contact me here.    Send me  an email via ‘contact Kim’ and let me know. I am not a  touchy writer, ( which you probably know already if you have followed me for some time). I don’t need praise I need some honest feedback even if it’s “Kim this is shit… because.” I have thick skin,  so don’t think I want praise, I want honest feedback to better the reading experience, based on  your reading experience of the draft before publishing. That said if your feedback is ” Kim this is great,” then I’ll dust off my shoulders,  do a happy dance and continue to spin some sinful romance for this series.

Thank you! I’d love some help 🙂
