It's true, I haven't blogged in eight months, but I haven't been playing Skyrim all the time either. ;) Last year I worked on a 'secret series', completing ten short stories as well as three partials for longer length works and S.E.R.A. Vol 4.
This year I've completed two shorter stories in the 'secret series' and I'm currently working on the first full length SERA Files story, 'Saving Sevastyan' as well as a partial on another full length SERA story (which will come after Sevastyan's story) and a short story as well as looking over the full length manuscript which first caught my lovely editor's eye.
So, if you don't hear from me for the next few months, don't worry... and send cookies. ;)
Adult colouring books are becoming the next big thing...but I was there first!
So. I regularly buy these for my girls: Colour Magic, since a friend of mine gave them to Miss 9 a few years ago. They really are mess free and a great way to get the kids away from the TV or for rainy days.
Anyway...I got hooked on colouring these marvellous, magical things in too. I quickly swore the Kidlets and Hubby to secrecy about my ‘habit’, worried that someone might stage an intervention. Now apparently it’s a ‘thing’ so I'm just a trendsetter rather than a weirdo, and I guess I can feel free to colour in without people wondering if I'm quite okay. And should anyone say anything I’ll write them into my next book and kill them in a really embarrassing way. :D
I'm back! And I'm over with Snarky Mum, Michelle to celebrate Chocolate Milk Shake Day. Yep, there is actually a day devoted to chocolate milk shakes. Go check out my post and enter to win some pretty fantastic prizes!
Is now live! The last four months have been hectic and this workshop on characterisation is one of the reasons why (registration is still open btw). Characterisation is one of the most important elements in romance writing. As a writer I want to create unique and memorable characters. And as a reader I love discovering intriguing and diverse characters. I’ve had immense fun creating the workshop, which runs for four weeks over June. Then I have a break before co-presenting the Claytons Conference in August. Phew!
The first title of this blog post was 'Big Year Planned'. Wow. What an incredibly dull blog title - the thing is, it's 5am, overcast and no doubt sultry (outside) here in the tropics, and I'm deep in writing two works at the moment, both of which are SFR (Science Fiction Romance) so my brain isn't up to much more than demanding more coffee.
As I'm hip-high in hot alien men I decided on a more interesting title - even though it makes me sound like I should be on some form of medication... Okay, hang on, one of my heroes is being a PITA.
I'm back, it's now 5:15 and I've already had to knock one of them out. The other is about to get a tongue-lashing...no, not that sort of tongue-lashing, from my feisty human heroine. She lost her job because of him and she's not very happy. I do feel rather sorry for him - he's going to have a long, hard road ahead of him if he wants her to agree to what he's going to suggest.
As for the one who's unconscious - well he's going to have to deal with humans and their downright peculiar ideas...Why would anyone want to abduct them? How is he going to convince them he's not the one invading their planet. And who the heck is Mr Spock?
To support my habit I'll be doing a workshop next year via the RWAustralia OWL's (check it out on my PD page). It's entitled 'An Unconventional Guide to Fascinating Characterisation'. The workshop runs over four weeks from June 1 2015 and is open to both RWA members and non-members. So sign up! Keep me in popcorn.
