The problems with KDP rectified themselves within an hour yesterday so the first chapter of 'What Might Have Been' is up. It will be free on Sunday (4th Nov) so please have a read and tell me what you think!
If you want to read it, and you don't have kindle, you can download the kindle app for PC or smart phone, failing that, you can contact me and I will send you a copy in your preferred formatt.
Confidante: The Escort news - Angelien and I have a planned meeting today further map out the book - we have a rough draft of what stories are going in there, but it needs some polishing so we don't mess the time line up!
Take care to everyone out there - I hope all of my US readers are safe from the hurricane! To everyone else - have a great halloween (if you celebrate it) my kids are all very excited as they have a party to go to this afternoon; I can expect some very hyperactive children tonight!
Well, my first chapter is ready to go up onto kindle for my romance/drama 'What might have been' (god I need a new title for it! help!) I am excited and nervous to put it out there BUT kdp is stuck in conversion mode! Arg! I will just have to wait it out and post here as soon as it is up, then I can let you know when the first promo day is happening so you can take a look.
I had lunch with Angelien today and she is pretty excited to start writing The Escort as well as her memoirs - for everyone who was disappointed 'the brothel' ended so soon, take heart - the Escort will be double in length as it took place over a longer period of time.
I'm really happy today because my self imposed break from writing is over, and I can go on without guilt; my routines are in place, and as long as I follow them, I (hopefully) won't miss anything important! Ah the life of a wife/mother/writer - there isn't much time left between caring for everyone, our home, exercise and writing. Angelien worries that I might burn myself out, but I know I'll be fine; I just need to be VERY organised.
Today has been filled with children's things and visits, so my writing time isn't scheduled until tonight when the children are in bed and hubby is at work - my fingers itch, my characters are knocking on the walls of my head, and I have a hefty supply of coffee!
If you have been reading my recent blog posts you will know that I am working on a romance/drama right now. I will start posting some excerpts up soon and putting the chapters up on Amazon for you all to read as I write it. I would love to get some feedback on it as I go along so keep a eye on this blog for the free days.
Confidante: The Escort is coming - it has been time lined and Angelien has started writing her memories down, she just has some family matters to attend to interstate before we start writing together again. I will let you know how she is progressing as we go along.
In the meantime, I will keep you updated on how my story is going - I really don't like it's working title at the moment so I am hoping that as you all read along, one of you might have a better idea for me.
Anyway! I have rambled enough and need to get back to my family. It's almost dinner time here in Australia, so we are winding down for the day.
Bye for now!
Today is my last day of reading and relaxing before I get back on the writing wagon and I can't wait! I promised myself, my husband and Angelien that I would take a week off writing (but between you and me I failed - I caved in to my itching finger tips and wrote for an hour yesterday - shhh!).
I am currently reading the first book in Sylvia Day's Crossfire trilogy - I'm fairly absorbed so it's keeping my mind off my own story for a while.
I find it amazing though, how the people that you create keep teasing your mind with their presence - it's like they are trapped in there desperate to get out and live their lives in the pages of your story...
I will be doing 'read as I write' again on Amazon so I should release the first chapter within the next couple of weeks.
The wonderful thing about an online launch party is that you don't have to clean up afterwards - it is as simple as closing a tab when it is over.
Our party went for nine hours and we had lots of drop ins and sparked some great conversations. I am sooooooooo grateful to all of those who came and participated and even brought a book.
Angelien and I are really proud of our book and it was amazing for us to have people come and visit us over the last 9 hrs.
Thanks again! Now, back to normal life.
