• Good Morning Monday! News and Updates

    OMG this year is almost over. And can you believe it… this decade is almost over!  Craaaaazy, isn’t it? But with a new decade brings new things, new goals, new milestones. I’m excited but also a little scared, not gonna lie. The world’s political arena at the moment is a horrifying spectacle and I worry about what it means for my kids, and how the new normal is really rather depressing. BUT all doom and gloom aside, adversity brings about change and strength. 2020 will be a good year. I’m determined for it to be my best year yet! Okay, so that was a deep and dark beginning LOL  On…

  • Good Morning Monday ~ FREE Deleted Scene from Tallowwood!

    What an amazing week it’s been! The release of Tallowwood has been FAB!  So many people have read and loved it. I’m so thrilled, and so proud of August and Jake! With lots of #1 rankings all over the world, Tallowwood is still #1 in LGBT Mystery and #2 in Gay Romance in the US, and it’s still #1 in all LGBT categories in Germany and Australia. I’m so happy people are loving this book! I’ve seen reviews like “Best book of 2019!” “N.R. Walker at her best” With lots of words like powerful and lyrical and brilliant. Guys, I can’t thank you enough for the response to this book!!…

  • Good Morning Monday ~ It’s Release Week for Tallowwood!

      Oh my GAWD it’s been a busy week, and this week will be even busier!  I’ve been travelling the last two weekends, trying to get things ready for Tallowwood release day, trying to start my next book, and working on some edits and proofing for a surprise for you guys later this week. It just neverrrrrr ends!! But yay for release weeks!! It’s always an exciting, nerve-wracking process for me. I’m so excited for everyone to finally read the book and meet the characters, but OMG what if people don’t like it, or if it falls spectacularly short of expectations, or if Amazon decide not to upload it, or…

  • Good Morning Monday ~ Tallowwood Excerpt!

      Release day for Tallowwood is getting closer!!  And I promised an excerpt so, without dragging it out, here it is…   Chapter One Detective August Shaw sat in his old, cramped office, tucked away from the rest of the bustling Police Headquarters in Parramatta, Sydney. He preferred it that way. He didn’t even mind the shoebox-sized office if it meant people left him alone. His colleagues would smile at him and some even tried to make small talk about weekend football or local festivals, but August would simply pretend to smile behind his coffee cup and make his excuses to go back to hiding in his office. He felt…

  • Good Morning Monday ~ Date Changes, And The Week That Was

      I spent most of this last week away, taking a lovely few days in the Hunter Valley with fellow MM author Nic Starr.  It was a much-needed recharge and catch up. We chatted and laughed, and discussed the industry goings-on. It was a lot of fun! I finished going through my WIP first draft and tidied that up, considered what I want to start writing next, and managed to get in some reading time! So, more on my WIP…  It was scheduled for release in the first week of December (as I explained last week with regards to my usual 8 weeks between releases) but that has now changed…

  • Good Morning Monday ~ Coming Up & Audio Update

      Sorry for not posting my weekly update last week. Kinda out of spoons lately, not gonna lie. I’ve been taking some mental health days off social media and it has helped me regroup and recharge. Some days we just need to unplug for a bit and take a breath. I’ve been struggling to make headway on my WIP. It’s at 27K words and honestly, I should have finished it weeks ago. But I can almost see the finish line (It’s a novella) but I really do love these characters. They’re cute and authentic, and their story is about being true to one’s self and finding people who appreciate the…

  • Good Morning Monday ~ Busy Again!

      It’s been another busy week, but then again, I haven’t had a non-busy week in years LOL.  Though my daughter got her drivers license last week and it has really freed up a lot of my time. I used to spend a lot of my days driving kids all over town – sometimes leaving the house 8 or 10 times per day – but now she’s mobile, I don’t have to do that anymore. It’s like I’m getting a little bit of my life back! So yay for that! I didn’t manage a great deal of words this week, but my WIP is now at 10K and should be…

  • Good Morning Monday! What a Week…

      What a week indeed.  The release of Sir was fabulous, so a HUGE thank you to everyone who read and reviewed Sig, Levin, and Hunter’s story. Sir broke into the #1 in six or seven countries on release day, and is still doing really well. I’m so glad people are loving that little book! It was fun and very different, and I love using creative muscles I don’t get to use very often. Thank you guys, for supporting me and reading my books.   You can find Sir at Amazon Be quick! Upside Down is still on sale at all retailers, but only for another couple of days. If…

  • Good Morning Monday! An Excerpt from Sir and a SALE on Upside Down

      It’s been a super busy week in Walkerville. I finished the first draft of Tallowwood, and it’s now with some beta-readers. It came to a total of 96K words (before edits, obv) and I’m waiting for feedback to see how much it sucks. LOL It’s release week for SIR!!!! I’m so excited for you all to meet Sig, Levin, and Hunter. Though I would warn you all, it’s a stretch from my usual thing, there is quite a LOT of sex but it is relationship-based, as all my books are. And last week I promised an excerpt, and so I shall deliver…   Excerpt The Mercedes slowed around the…

  • Good Morning Monday ~ First Draft From Hell Is Done!

      OMG finally finally finally!! The first draft of this bloody book is done!! It’s very rough and needs a mountain of work and fixing before I can send it off to beta-readers, but it’s DONE!!  It came in at a rather plump 95,400 words. I had originally thought it would be three x 30,000-word novellas, but the characters were adamant it be one book. The word count was pretty much the same either way, but I think it will make for a better reading experience. And the title? Tallowwood. Tallowwood is a fictional town where the majority of the book takes place. It’s set in Australia, the two main…
