7th October: I'm in Peterborough for The Darker Side of Fiction book signing. The chance to get tickets is drawing to a close, so grab them ASAP. If you love dark fiction (paranormal, horror, dark fantasy, etc) this is going to be a fabulous event you won't want to miss! The Reign Of The Wolf paperback will, sadly, NOT be available for this signing, BUT I am happy to take pre-orders for the signed book on the day, and will send it in the post to you on publication, with your requested inscription. See me at my table for this.
October, November, December: I'm going to concentrate a lot on marketing over these months to get me back up to the level I was at three years ago as an author, and I will finally have TWO COMPLETED SERIES to market. I am so happy about that. With all the personal happenings over the past few years, I could not keep up with the marketing of my books, let alone the writing. Depression sank in, along with continued challenges such as a house burglary, and an appeal hearing for a school place for my daughter - neither helped my emotional stress levels. I'm sad to say my sales suffered a little for it all. But I'm in a far better place now in life, and would like to forge ahead. My websites are going to be getting a tweaking, and I'm looking at what I can let go of, so I can concentrate solely on writing and publishing my books - I can't have my fingers in so many pies. Over the last two years, I've thought a lot about what I really want from life and from my career - how everyone, including myself, can be happy (not that it's possible to make everyone happy) - and really, I want to write for a living - for pleasure first, but without a doubt for a living (living SHOULD be pleasure). I'd love a busy, fulfilled life writing. With all the struggles the past few years, I feared the possibility of this was fading. Nope, it's still there. I just needed to be in a better place to see it.
Most of my readers have clearly stated they'd love more fantasy based / paranormal books from me, so this is what I'll be plotting and writing at the end of this year and going into the next.
For now, that's all I'm scheduling. With regards to the new book / series coming, I will tell more at the end of this year.
Thank you for being patient and kind. Big love to you all,
