She’s going to ground, MIA, AWOL, and generally pulling a total disappearing act… This here author is retreating to her study to write her most exciting book yet (during a self-imposed complete social media ban)!
Friends, readers and fellow romance lovers! I’m going away, but in a good cause.
The backend of 2014 was somewhat chaotic for me, and I had to take on a few commitments that took me away from writing. Now I’m somewhat behind on my next book. Actually, scratch that. I’m a lot behind on my next book.
I am nonetheless determined to bring you my next book as soon as I can, and it’s quite possibly my most ambitious one yet. It’s a romantic comedy with a bit of bite. “Seven Years Bad Sex” looks at a toasting superstition gone seriously wrong, and a young married couple’s complete inability to get… romantic. Cue all manner of hilarious and occasionally desperate antics!
To complete this masterpiece, I am taking a leave of absence from social media. Yup, you read that right. Complete and utter radio silence. I’m already shaking with withdrawal symptoms, but it’s got to be done. For the next two to three months, I’m going to use every available minute to write, write, write, until it’s done. I won’t be on Facebook, and I apologise in advance if I miss your birthday or any other significant events. I won’t be on Twitter. I won’t be blogging. I will be well and truly M.I.A.
Please bear with me and forget me not. Writing is paramount to me, and I am so keen to bring you my next book! I’ll be in touch when I surface from my self-imposed ban. In fact, I have an exciting re-entry strategy, and you’ll definitely know when I’m BACK!
In the meantime, you can reach me via the contact page, anytime. Thank you for your support and understanding. See you soon!
It’s 2015! Isn’t that amazing? 2015. Two thousand and fifteen. Fifteen years into the 21st century. The very notion seemed light years away when I was but fifteen. It was the other side of the great millennium divide after all. And my, has the world changed! When I was fifteen, we had mobile phones the size of bricks, and texting hadn’t been invented. The Internet was but a nerd’s secret dream. Televisions still contained cathode tubes, and cars were driving with all sorts of really unhealthy fuels. And yet that was only a few short decades ago. Weird, huh?
HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all! May it be a fabulous one that makes all your dreams come true. :-)
Here’s the year that was for me, my own personal highlights.
Book launch #1: Fallen for Rock. Because I love rock stars (but you already knew that!)
Starting my own radio show! BOOKS ROCK on Siren 107.3 FM! The first season comprised seven monthly shows and you can listen to the entire archive via podcasts!
Summer holidays in and near Whitby….
Autumn holidays in Wales and the West of England–the Wells family took one fabulous road trip visiting castles, waterfalls, gold mines, manor houses and friends. AWESOME!
And of course the Christmas time was full of more priceless moments, including seeing the children’s carol concerts (one in Lincoln cathedral, no less), a hilarious panto, and a fabulous family Christmas. I feel truly blessed!
Thank YOU for all your support throughout the year. I loved every email, every tweet, every Facebook share, every message, and every letter you sent me. They keep me going, and I love hearing from you, so please stay in touch! :-D
And here are my resolutions for 2015.
~Spend much more time with the family and enjoy every moment of that precious time right down to the tiniest second
~Slow down, breathe, and focus on the things that matter
~Write and publish at least one book
~Take up singing lessons
There you go. Nothing too ambitious. After the manic few years that I’ve had of late, I think I owe myself a stock-taking year, and that’s exactly what I have in mind.
What about you? Any highlights and resolutions to share?
Dearest friends and readers! ’tis the season to be jolly, so here’s wishing you all a wonderful Christmas! Be merry, eat chocolate, and may the bubbles flow. :-D
Thank you for all your support during 2014. I hope you all enjoyed the ride, and that you’re getting a well-deserved rest with plenty of jollification and the odd present here or there over the festive period. Let the good times roll! XXX
You all know how much I love the Christmas season. And so do my kids. I’m turning them into regular anti-Grinches! Last weekend, we made a Gingerbread house together. And before you think I’m some kind of domestic goddess (which, of course, I am–just not all of the time!), I confess: we bought a build-your-own-kit. I suppose we could have made the lot from scratch, but I deemed it safer to have some sturdy ingredients. Nonetheless, huge amounts of fun were had by all. We’re planning to demolish the house on Christmas Eve… if we can convince ourselves to tear it down!
Ho Ho ho! Have you built yours yet? What’s your favourite Christmas ‘craft’ activity?
