Quick Update

NJN_Avatar_FbFirstly I just want to apologise that I have been absent for so long. I have had some crap going on in my life that just seemed to take over for a while. I Think most of it has been dealt with but now or will have been by the end of June. So I’m saying that the last half of the years should be better for me writing wise. I should have gotten my shit together and have the time to sit down and devote to my writing again.

I absolutely hate that I haven’t been writing as it’s usually the one thing I do to keep me sane when everything in my life goes to shit and lately that hasn’t been happening… But now I feel like I can finally breath again. I feel like me, which in all honesty I haven’t felt like me in such a long time… But I’m getting there.

I’m not sure what books I’ll be working on, so everyone will just have to bear with me as I try and work my way through them all and get them out to you. I will try and rotate through the three publishers that I have so that all my readers have a chance of their favourite stories getting heard… but feel free to drop me a line and tell me if it’s been yonks since I wrote a particular story and need to hurry the hell up and write the next one in the series. I won’t get offended if you feel the need to give me a good shove in any particular direction.

I’m not sure how well that’s working out for me as yet, but it has given me the working base for book three. well, I think it has, because we all know I have a tendency to change my mind at least a hundred times while I write any story. I hope to have this particular story finished by the end of the weekend. That’s if nothing crops up between now and then to stop me from completing my mission.

I’m still not sure who the next book is about as yet I guess we’ll all find out when I actually start writing the damn thing. But my next for Fireborn will either be book 2 in The Diamond Rose, or book two in The Freedomers.

Edits

allthatshiimmers_800Today I finished second edits on Wardens of the Guild 2: All That Shimmers… and got them back to the amazing Rebecca B at pride.

the second time around I only had to address three things which was good… first time around I ended up adding nearly or just over 3K to the story line. and there seemed to be so much red… mainly because of overused words… in this book it was (was/ as he/ just). and the other thing is I forgot descriptions again.

I’ve been told the story is off for final line edits next… wish me luck.

Weekly Report

open-book-clip-art-1816875This week I’ve struggled, and I’m not ashamed to admit it… I got distracted by the cricket… who doesn’t love the cricket.

But I’m happy to announce that I made to the end of the week intact. Okay so here’s where I’m at and where I’ll be heading next… I like this whole having a weekly report as it’s kinda keeping me on track and focused—most of the time.
