Turns out the life of an author under contract is a hectic one…and I’m making no complaint about that. I'm loving it! That said, it has been pretty full on keeping on top of all my deadlines so here’s a quick recap of all I’ve been up to.
The main challenge in recent months has been editing my debut psychological suspense I Am Watching You while also working on the first draft of my second psych suspense as I needed to get the latter in by the end of May.
Juggling work on two books at the same time is probably the biggest shock to a new author under contract but I’m getting the hang of it finally.
The good news is the proof read of I am Watching You is pretty much done and dusted. I’m SO proud of this new book and I should be able to share the cover very soon. Exciting!
I have also now had terrific feedback on the second book in the deal (phew…always scary to hand in a new book) and have this weekend started editing that second psych suspense…so here we go again, folks!
Meantime I have just accepted an invitation to give a talk and Q&A session at Plymouth Central Library to launch I am Watching You.
The book is out on October 1 (ebook, paperback and audio) but we have decided to stage the event on Wednesday October 11th at 7pm to tie in with Libraries Week.
Regular blog readers will know I am a big supporter of our wonderful local libraries. I have had so much fun staging writer workshops at libraries around Devon but this is my first event in conjunction with Plymouth Libraries so I am really looking forward to it.
Do pop the date in your diary. I understand the event will be free so I’ll post a link on how to reserve tickets as soon as that’s available
Meantime enjoy your own writing and watch this space. Cover reveal for my new book coming very soon!!!
