I had to take a few temping jobs which knocked out January and half of February in terms of writing, but then in between some more casual days here and there, working all over the place, I actually finished the book I was working on! :)
This new work is a bit of a departure from my usual genre in that it has a supernatural element to it, but I am super excited by it! I am aiming for traditional publishing with this one, so first step is to gain literary agent representation, which is where I'm at currently. The book is out with agents, under consideration. Please do wish me luck for this bit, it's nerve-racking waiting for responses!!
So, to take my mind off the wait, I am working on plotting the next book in the series.
Also - some exciting news!! One of my short stories has been accepted by Fox Spirit Books for their Crime Anthology, "You Left Your Biscuit Behind" which is due out later this year. It's an usual name, granted, but then Fox Spirit are a little different themselves ;) You can find out more here - Click Me. My story is called "No Mercy". Watch this space and I will keep you posted! More regularly, I promise ;)
