A new beginning

March 13, 2007

Well, at last the revisions on my current book are complete. It has a brand new title now, MOTHERS AND DAUGHTERS, out later this year.
How about that!

I am starting to plan the next book. I will be making videos of my progress and my methods, explaining the way I create a novel. These I will be posting to YouTube and Livevideo. Isn’t technology wonderful? And its fun too.

My head is full of my new characters and their lives, past and present.

I believe I will enjoy myself writing this one. Let’s hope so.

 Bye for now!

Off with the old, On with the new

 Hi Ya 

My book is finished at last and sent off to my publishers. Hoorah!

 Roll 

Now I am thinking about an idea for the next one.  Characters are crowding into my consciousness.   They are all clamouring to tell me their story. Most of the stuff seems to be about family secrets.  My head is buzzing!

It is all so chaotic. How will I sort it all out into a coherent whole?

I don’t know.  It just happens – eventually – after a lot of hard work.  Anyway, I’ve got a year to whip the whole thing into shape.

Here I go again!!!

  

Result!

Haven’t had time to blog as I am busy writing these days (uploading to YouTube in my spare time!)  However a new two book contract is on the cards. I am so pleased! 

     

Time to get serious

September 21, 2006

The first ten chapters of my new novel are complete – in draft form, of course. Haven’t had much time for blogging unfortunately.

The time has come now to send these ten chapters off to my agent. The purpose of this is to show her that I am getting on with the job in hand; get her advice on how it looks so far, and if possible give her some ammunition to try to secure a new book contract for me.

Even though I have already had ten books published with the uncertain state of publishing today nothing can be taken for granted. You are only as good as your current book – never before has that phrase been truer. The competition in my genre is fierce.
 
But I can only give it my best shot.
