Good Morning everyone! Happy Sunday! welcome back to the blog, if you're new, a very warm welcome to you!
is a funny month to me, Spring seems like it has finally arrived, albeit with a rainy, damp beginning, but this is British weather so I don't really expect anything less. Spring equals a new start for me as it does every year, but it holds sadness in that
my mom would've celebrated her birthday this month - something that hasme planning a new memorial.
Spring's new beginning for me this year is some new novels in my head that
are itching to reach paper and I'm giddy with excitement over them. These are paranormal romance - a genre I do love reading and these are soemthing a little different. I'm not giving too much away as I don't want to allow expectations to build up only for
disappointment if the books don't meet expectations (mine or yours). I have high hopes of things changing for me this year and this includes with my writing.
So my new books
are a series of 6, split into 2 smaller sets of 3 - they center around family groups is why that is, but the characters will cross over. I've been writing out my characters, ideas I have about who they are, what I want them to be and what it is that they're
telling about themselves - I know the last part sounds strange, but any author will tell you, the characters speak to you, they tell you how they want to be written.
some nifty (if I do say so myself) sub plots to keep the action going and keeping things interesting. I'm even writing a little lore for the characters based on who they are and the type of books that I'm writing and this is exciting for me, I am putting together
something for my own little fictional realm that makes perfect sense to me, works very well with the characters and keeps a tradition there, that while only exists in fiction, seems realistic enough that it could be true in the real world too.
I've written an autobiography too, "On The Brink Of Sanity". This is very much in a rough first draft stage and is very heavy on the short hand notes, scribbled down furiously to get things out of my head before
i forgot them. I'll fill it out more and detail in where necessary later on, but for now, it is waiting in the background for the time when I'm ready to tackle it again.
In the meantime, I'm
enjoying my new work, I'll keep you posted on my progress as always - hopefully I'll be brave enough to face an editor and publisher soon!
Whatever else you're doing, stay safe and look after
each other! As always, Keep Reading! x
