Can you believe this year is literally half over? That means we’ll have to start thinking about Christmas soon… *head desk* Not to mention I have six week overseas family trip in September/October to plan and organise. Man, I am so not ready for that. LOL
Okay, so this week has been super busy. Blood & Milk is out and the reviews on Amazon have been wonderfully positive and heartfelt. I would like to thank everyone who took a chance on reading. I have also received more emails from readers about this book (in the first few days of release) than any other book. Your messages of love and support truly mean a lot to me, so thank you everyone, from the bottom of my heart. <3 <3
In news of the charity fundraising, I estimate by the end of the first week alone we will have raised about $400USD for the African Human Rights Coalition. I will be sure to keep you posted with updates.
I also have some exciting translation news! Red Dirt Heart is coming out in German!! I’m just waiting on proofreading, which hopefully won’t take long, then I can format it and get it live asap. Rote Erde 1 will be out soon, and I’m super excited about this!
Something else I’m ridiculously excited about is Red Dirt Heart in Audio is due out any day!! This is my first ever audio book and the narrator, the wonderful Joel Froomkin has graciously held my hand throughout the entire process 🙂
The lovely RJ Scott and Love Lane Books will be releasing it asap! I can’t wait for you guys to hear this book. Just listening to it, I laughed and cried – hearing my own words is an amazing thing. And man, I have missed these boys – Charlie still means as much to me now as he did two years ago.
In other news, my WIP (not sure on the title yet…) is at 10K. I estimate it will maybe be around 40K words, but we all know how characters do whatever the hell they want and I, being the lowly writer, have no say in such things. LOL My main character (it’s first person pov) is Henry Beckett and his love interest is Reed Henske, and it’s set in Balmain, Sydney. And I’m aiming/hoping for a release in early September. More details on that later.
What’s happening this coming week? Well, another busy one (no surprises to those who know me lol) It’s EOFY here in Australia (end of financial year) and I haven’t done ANY of my accounts yet, so that needs to be a priority. I also need to write as much as physically possible, as school holidays start on Friday and I’ll be away for all of the first week and half of the second week, so my writing time will be almost zero for the two weeks after this one. Not to mention the RL stuff I have going on…
That also means there might not be a post next week (as I won’t be home) and my online time will also be very minimal, but I will try and schedule something.
