Sounds exciting, doesn’t it? Well, minus the chest/lung infection, that is. It’s not that bad… I only cough every time I breathe. 😉 My doc gave me some antibiotics and told me to rest (obviously doesn’t know that rest doesn’t apply to a working mum LOL) Though I am trying to take it easy/easier. This infection has also brought on a spike of chronic fatigue which is a double whammy. Basically I’m too tired to get better. LOL Fingers crossed I see an improvement this week. I’m leaving on Friday for a four day trip to Brisbane with my daughter, my sister, and my niece. Which would have been fab if I wasn’t hacking up a lung every other minute. I’m sure I’ll be feeling better by then…
My next release!
Anywhooooo, I mentioned a cover reveal!! Woo hoooo! I love doing these. It is for my Christmas story, called A Soldier’s Wish. But the big reveal isn’t here today. The big reveal is happening on My Fiction Nook on the 5th November. I know it’s technically the 5th of November here in Australia but we know all dates and timezones for these things are set default to the US. So you’ll have to wait a day. This is part of the Christmas Angel anthology – seven authors, seven different stories involving one Christmas Angel ornament that gets handed down throughout history.
The Christmas Angel Series
In 1750, a master woodcarver poured all his unrequited love, passion, and longing into his masterpiece—a gorgeous Christmas angel for his beloved’s tree. When the man he loved tossed the angel away without a second thought, a miracle happened. The angel was found by another who brought the woodcarver True Love.
Since then, the angel has been passed down, sold, lost and found, but its magic remains. Read the romances inspired by (and perhaps nudged along by) the Christmas Angel through the years. Whether it’s the 1700’s England (Eli Easton), 1880’s New York (Kim Fielding), the turn-of-the-century (Jordan L. Hawk), post World War II (L.A. Witt), Vietnam-era (N.R. Walker), the 1990’s (Anyta Sunday), or 2018 (RJ Scott), the Christmas Angel has a way of landing on the trees of lonely men who need its blessing for a very Merry Christmas and forever HEA.
Christmas Angel (Book #1) – Eli Easton
Summerfield’s Angel (Book #2) – Kim Fielding
The Magician’s Angel (Book #3) – Jordan L. Hawk
Christmas Homecoming (Book #4) – Lori Gallagher Witt
A Soldier’s Wish (Book #5) – N.r. Walker
Shrewd Angel (Book #6) – Anyta Sunday
Christmas Prince (Book #7) – Rj Scott
The books can be read in any order. They are all completely standalones. They are only tied together with a common theme. You can read one, or all seven. And you know you want to read all seven, right??? 😉
Mine is set in Woodstock and Vietnam. Gary and Richard are two characters I simply adored writing. This is my first ever full length standalone Christmas story. Christmas is not really something I get into much (bahumbug, and all that) and I did worry that this wasn’t very Christmassy, but my pre-readers said it passed the Christmas test. The book will be released on December 2nd and will go straight into KU. It is 55,000 words long and follows these boys from when they meet going to Woodstock and the two years that follow.
I hope everyone enjoys reading their story as much as I did writing it! <3
Nova Praetorian has been out a week now and the feedback I’ve had has been really positive. Thank you to everyone who has read and reviewed this book. I know historicals aren’t for everyone – I knew that before I wrote it. But I wouldn’t change a thing. Quintus and Kaeso remain one of my favourite couples I’ve ever written, and I’m very proud of this book.
My WIP update:
I’m currently 22K words into my newest venture. If you were at GRL or saw a few clues on social media, my current WIP is Kennard’s story from my Cronin’s Key series. Yes, Kennard and Stas are getting their story! It’s only going to be shorter (under 30K words) but there’s crazy adventures abound, because as well know, history is never what it seems! 😉
And I can honestly say I have NO clue what’s going to happen is this book. I never plan anything and this is one crazy ride. I’m just as keen to see where it all goes as anyone else! LOL I really want to finish it this week. As I mentioned, I’m going away on Friday for 4-5 days and I’d love to get the first draft finished before I leave. Not sure how possible that is considering every time I add a chapter, something crazier happens. Let me just say, that Eiji is in his element here. The weirder it is, the more he loves it. <3
Okay folks, that’s it for this week. I’ll be away next Monday so there might not be a post next week. Don’t miss me too much 😉
