Soooo, I was a fail at posting my Monday post last week. I was away from home and had no internet access, so it was just not possible. Not that I had much to report on anyway, just a crapload of kids’ tennis, and I have to admit the break was lovely, and much needed. <3
But this week, work resumed and I’m so pleased to say that Blood & Milk has passed the 55K words mark. I’m guessing it will end up around the 70K words in total. I have some tough scenes coming up to write, but I’m truly looking forward to giving these boys their full story.
This week I will be getting ARCs ready for Spencer Cohen, Book Three to send out. I’ve finalised the paperback copy and am waiting on the proof to arrive (postage is ridiculously expensive and slow – ugh). But I’m super excited for everyone to read the conclusion of Spencer and Andrew’s story, and I just hope everyone feels I’ve done them justice. Everything is still on schedule for release day on April 21st.
The next two weeks are also a super short one for me. I leave again on the Thursday for five days of no internet (more kids’ tennis) so I’m trying like crazy to get everything done and organised before I leave. Ideally, I would have LOVED to have the first draft of Blood & Milk done by the time I leave, but that is just not going to be possible. I don’t want to rush this story, and to be honest, this first draft will need a butt-tonne of reworking so I’m giving myself some more time to get it right.
I’m taking part of RJ Scott’s awesome annual autism awareness blog hop. My post will go live on the 7th (this Thursday). I’m also making Blind Faith FREE from the 7th to the 10th, and the link will be in that blog post, so keep an eye out! If you haven’t read my Blind Faith book, then will be the time to grab it!
I have some voting/awards nominations right now, which is lovely and humbling. Thank you to those who nominated me <3
Spencer Cohen, Book Two is also up for Book of the Month at Open Skye’s Book Reviews. Feel free to check out the other books and vote for your favourites.
The Spencer Cohen Series is also up for nomination for March’s Best Reads at JGB Readers Choice Awards. It’s a true Grinders Group love-fest, because Felice Stevens is up for January, and Riley Hart is up for February 😀 The best/worst thing about these voting lists is that my to-be-read list usually explodes LOL
But as Spencer Cohen Book Three is now less than three weeks away, I suppose I should post something promo related! 😀
Learning to be in a committed relationship has been easy for Spencer. In fact, too easy. Andrew has fit into his life seamlessly. Spencer’s let go of his insecurities and hang-ups, and he and Andrew are enjoying where things are headed.
For the first time in years, Spencer’s life is unbelievably perfect.
Andrew overthinks everything. So when Spencer gets a phone call from Australia, he’s certain Spencer will push him away.
But instead of driving them apart, maybe it will solidify what they already have. Maybe Spencer will depend on Andrew more than ever. Maybe the Spencer Cohen story will come full circle, and maybe, just maybe, Spencer will have the happily ever after he never thought possible.
So there you have it! Another not-too-exciting Monday Morning post from me LOL.
