Hello, yes it’s me, I’m still around. In a few days time my book launch day arrives! November 9th will see my publishing dream come true. I will have a traditional published book out in the big wide world thanks to HarperImpulse, and to say I’m nervous is an understatement! I’m also very excited.
Hallowe’en is my birthday, and 14th November will be my first RNA awards/winter party event, and so to have a book published in-between is the icing on the cake!
Also, my agent, Kate Nash, is short-listed for Agent of the Year in the RNA Industry Awards. Last year, my Editing Director, Charlotte Ledger, won Publisher of the Year in the same category. I’m so lucky to have these people believe in me and spur me on.
I’m now writing another WWII novel, September Tears (working title), and am making headway into the life of Irene (Reenie) Porter and her family. Reenie struggles with her children away from the family home, and this is her story. It is quite an emotional roller-coaster writing some of the scenes, but I battle through as she manages to get through each one alongside me.
As always, I’d like to thank you for your continued support!
