• Good Morning Monday! 2.5 weeks to go!

    OMG there’s only two and a half weeks until we leave for the U.S.!!!    It’s getting real, folks. And I still have so much to do!  BUT, it does look like my next release, The Weight Of It All will be released before I go.  Yay!! JSYK, there won’t be pre-orders for The Weight Of It All.  And chances are there won’t be a blog tour, unless I can pull one together at the last minute. It also means there won’t be my usual new release gift card giveaway etc because I’ll be in transit and can’t guarantee I’ll be able to send the Amazon gift card or even…

  • Good Morning Monday! What’s on this week?

    Okay so this one is gonna be the quickest, shortest update ever!  I’m supposed to be walking out the door LOL. What happened last week?  After my pre-readers input, The Weight Of It All is now with my editor. Yay!!  It is looking more and more likely that I will release it before I leave for the US. I was aiming for Sept 14th but it might be a day or two before that, to save my sanity, as we leave for Sydney, U.S. bound on the 15th.  Fingers crossed I don’t have major rewrites to do… I also revealed the amazing cover and blurb!!  For those that missed it,…

  • Good Morning Monday ~ US Trip Countdown: One Month To Go

    It’s one month until we leave for the US.  This holiday has been coming for months, and I’d put it in my “it’s ages away” brain basket and now, as my daughter just reminded me, it’s only four weeks away. For the most part, I think I’m organised.  Doing a four-person family, five week trip across the US is a bit daunting, but exciting for the most part. But not only do I have all that to plan/organise/do/try and enjoy, I also have GRL to plan for. So whatever I need to organise for GRL, also needs to happen in the next four weeks or it doesn’t happen.  So while I remember……

  • Good Morning Monday! Another week gone, another thousand things to do…

    I’m happy to report it was a productive week on the word count front. Yay!!  My WIP, titled The Weight Of It All is now at 52.5K and, all things going well, I should finish the first draft this week!! I can’t wait for you all to meet Henry and Reed.  I just love them to bits.  <3 A little insight into the story and the characters might be in order, yes?  LOL  Okay, here it is: Thirty five year old socially awkward Henry suddenly finds himself single after eight years, when he’s told it’s because he’s let himself go. He’s overweight, unfit, unwanted. In a mad attempt to get…

  • Good Morning Monday ~ Again!

    Boy these Mondays keep coming around fast!  Today is the first of August which means it is now less than six weeks until we leave for the US… which I am so unbelievably not ready for.  LOL So this week has been yet another busy one. I’ve managed just 8K words on my WIP, but have had some RL issues to deal with. In light of everything, 8000 words is pretty damn good. Of course I’d like some more, but any words are good words and I’ll take them. LOL     It is, however, looking more and more likely that this book will not be ready (or even finished) before…
