• Good Morning Monday! September is here!

    September already, which is the beginning of Spring for us Aussies. And I have to say, as much as I love winter, I’m actually looking forward to being able to sit outside and get some writing done with some warmer weather. Don’t worry, I’ll be complaining about the heat soon LOL I didn’t do a post last week for a few reasons. Mostly because I did two the week before with the release of Private Charter and I don’t want anyone to feel like I’m spamming them. And two, I haven’t been productive in my writing so I kind of felt like I had nothing to say unless it was…

  • Good Morning Monday ~ Blah blah blah…

    This week was just blah. I had major focus issues this week, but I did manage to get some things done, but not one monumental, big thing. I wanted to write a whole bunch on my Christmas short story and barely managed 1K words. I did manage to get some proofing edits done on Private Charter, and I did manage to get ARCs out. I also did some research for my Christmas story, and I did get some amazing feedback on my Roman-era story that I very briefly started to unpack. But I wanted to get more written on my WIP and I know that productivity doesn’t equate to word…

  • Good Morning Monday ~ What’s on in August?

    Yes, holy crap it’s August! This year has gone so fast it makes my head spin. It was another busy week in Walkerland, and seriously I need another word for busy. My WIP, Nova Praetorian, is now at 92K and I pretty much only two or three more scenes to write. Then I can start the endless/funless job of trying to fix it. It’s an unholy mess right now. It’s written in third person, which is not my usual MO. And for the first 50K words, I’ve somehow managed to write it from everyone’s point of view, not just the MC’s. I’ve headhopped so much not even Freud couldn’t make…

  • Good Morning Monday ~ Holy crap, tomorrow is the first of May!

    Tomorrow is May. Truly. This year is almost half done. I can’t believe it. But, as the saying goes, time flies when you’re having fun… I’ve been crazy-busy. I mean, I’m always busy. I rarely ever get a minute to myself – I’m not even exaggerating LOL This last week I took my daughter and niece to Sydney for a Harry Styles concert. I singlehandedly propped up the New South Wales economy for a while with the amount of shopping two teenage girls subjected me to, we spent a day at Taronga Zoo (my niece had never been on a ferry or to Taronga, so we rectified that) and we…

  • Autism Awareness Month ~ Hopes and Dreams, and a contest~

    Autism Fact:  People with autism are more likely to be the victims of violence than committing a violent act. April is Autism Awareness Month and it’s always an honour to take part. This year the theme is hopes and dreams, which is another great topic and one we don’t reflect on enough. I usually only take stock of which goals I’d like to achieve around the new year, not really as a resolution, but more of a ‘am I going in the direction I want/need to be going’ kind of way. I am truly lucky that I have my dream job – and I know this. I don’t take it for…

  • Good Morning Monday! It’s Release Day for Evolved and a $50 Amazon Gift Card to Win!!

    I’m so excited for everyone to meet Shaun! I’ve had an INCREDIBLE response to the ARC’s with reviews and feedback being wonderful, so a HUGE thank you to everyone who has let me know they loved it! It’s such a relief to get those first replies and even better when they’re glowing reviews. Blurb: In 2068, androids are an integrated part of human life. Big Brother no longer just watches from the shadows. It’s in every household. Lloyd Salter has OCD issues with noise and mess, and he’s uncomfortable with human interaction. When his ex claimed the only thing perfect enough to live up to his standards was an android,…

  • Good Morning Monday!! Who wants an Evolved Excerpt?

    Another week. Holy hell. It’s now getting to the point where I’m scared to blink LOL. This year is flying! My kids are now off school for two weeks, and will no doubt be driving me crazy. The joys of working from home LOL  I may have to sequester myself to the library for some quiet time. 😉 But I did promise an excerpt from Evolved, and considering release day is just SEVEN days away, it’s probably overdue. So, enough of my blabbering on… So, without further ado… here it is 🙂 By the time my intercom sounded at nine fifteen the next morning, the butterflies in my belly felt…

  • Good Morning Monday!

    What a crazy week it’s been! I was supposed to be home by now, but I’m currently still in Sydney. I came here for the Sydney Author Event (not as an author) and booked our flights home for the Monday instead of the Sunday. Luckily I realised my error before we left for the airport LOL!!  I’m such an idiot!  I said “OMG I can’t believe I did that!” and my daughter replied with “Um, what? You’ve been saying the Ed Sheeran concert was in April and the Harry Styles one was in March (Ed was March, Harry is April) for six months!”  LOL so maybe she has a point.…

  • Good Morning Monday ~ The Cover Reveal of Evolved!

    Man, it’s almost April. The mornings are cooler here now, and the sun sets a little earlier, so it’s getting harder to ignore that the year is really pressing on. It’s kinda crazy how fast it seems to go now, it’s like one book release after another. Which is not a bad thing 😉 So in WIP news, I finished Galaxies and Oceans!!  OMG it truly felt like the manuscript that would never end. LOL!!  It finished at 84.5K words, though this week will be spent going back over it and fixing/adding/deleting so there’s no saying what the final word count will be. But Aubrey and Patrick’s story is down,…

  • Good Morning Monday ~ 2018 has started with a bang!
