Time For An Update

open-book-clip-art-1816875Okay, I know everyone is wondering if I’m up to date on everything I have set out to do this year… well the answer is ‘NO’. But, I’ll have caught up by the end of Feb… I have kept up to date mostly in longhand… I just haven’t typed it all up on the computer.
The Lines Of Marsden 4: The Trail Of Red Roses… I am on track, and even wording it so the short offshoot Christmas novella at the end of the year… I feel good about this storyline.
Moon Runners 2: I Won’t Let You Go… I have just over half of this written, but need to go back through and rewrite a whole section as it doesn’t make sense, and I have no idea what it has to do with the story itself… I hate it when that happens.
Lancaster’s Way 3: Pre-loved…This is up to date and all written in longhand. I have no excuse except to say that I have been suffering a bout of bronchitis and hadn’t been on the computer for five days… so the ones in long hand will continue to be written in longhand until I find the time to type everything up.
The Connelly Chronicles 2: Beautiful Goodbyes… This story has been one drama after another. I just can’t get it right. I keep getting close to finishing, then pulling it apart and redoing it all over again ~ frustrating as hell I can tell you.
Still waiting to hear back on Intended Mates 1: Lay Your Body Down… and Wardens Of The Guild 1: The Real You

Halfway Point

B - TCCThis book has been a very long time in coming. I can’t wait until it’s finished. but I have promised my editor and my fans that I will have it written and submitted by Jan 31. The Connelly Chronicles 2: Beautiful Goodbyes. I have written and then scrapped and then written again, many times over. It has become a total pain in my arse… I’m finding it hard to write in USA English while still thinking as an Aussie.

The truth is I scrapped the original idea for this story as it didn’t fit my mind frame in the here and now… maybe I just didn’t want to kill off the character I had planned on—no it wasn’t GG—but someone else equally important in Ray & Viv’s lives. So if you don’t hear from me for the next little bit you will know what I’m doing.

Wish me luck.

Today I Am…

open-book-clip-art-1816875Today I’m busy as all get go…  This is what I have to do. I need to  write two synopsis for the stories following Wardens of the Guild 1: The Real You. I have to send it back to the wonderful Faith BB at Pride Publishing.

Today I am also filling in the Cover Art Sheet for Intended Mates 1: Lay Your Body Down and get it back to the ever patient Christie N & Laura B at MLRPress.

I have had a few set backs lately as my knew computer laptop the M Key partially fell off and I had to take it back to where I bought it from and get it fixed… Really hard for me when one of my main characters is called Michael Marsden… not to mention everyone else who starts with an M. luckily today all is working well. you never know how much you use a letter until you. Then once that is done I have to play catch up on all the rest of my writing schedule. I will be glad when the kids are back at school and my time is my own.

My Thoughts…

12.2Okay, today I’ll give a quick update rundown.

  • I’m trying to catch up on all my new writing—as well as the one carrying over from last year.
  • I’m still waiting to hear back from MLRPress about Intended Mates 1: Lay Your Body Down.
  • I still have to write a synopsis up for the books in a series, before Pride publishing will accept Wardens of the Guild 1: The Real You.
  • I’m waiting to start edits Fireborn Publishing on The Freedomers 1: Zephania’s Chance.
  • I’m also going to try and be more active on this blog… if you think I’m starting to slack off at any stage throughout the year feel free to message me and give me a swift kick up the arse to get me back on track.

It’s Already Started


I’m already running late… I still have to finish the last book of 2015—The Connelly Chronicles 2: Beautiful Goodbyes for Pride Publishing. so it’s throwing everything out of whack for me… but no fear I will have caught up by the end of January.

My one major goal this years it to write at least 4K per day to keep on top of the PBC (Penny Brandon Challenge). I think it’s very doable… That will mean I will also hopefully be caught up by the end of January, or maybe February.

I think it will run more smoothly once my son has started back to high school (year 10). At the moment he’s working flat out, so my days are constantly interrupted by me having to drive him to and from work.

Releasing Now…

(FBP) HH 2 - One Last Kiss Goodbye


Releasing: January 1st 2016

Publisher: Fireborn Publishing

CONTENT ADVISORY: This is an extensively expanded and re-edited re-release title.



All his life, Jacen’s had a crush on his brother’s best friend. One night, they share a kiss, but Kayne isn’t his to love. Now, Jacen’s been beaten up, and he flees back to Queensland. Kayne’s no longer with his wife and is raising his son. Will lifelong love win out?

Jacen Ives was living a lie. Being in a relationship with a person he couldn’t fully love was only a small part of the problems in his life. The truth was, he was hiding away from the one man he always knew he was meant to love. Jacen left his home in Queensland to get away from Kayne Henderson and the family he was making for himself. Distance didn’t help because his heart could never forget.

Mistakes made as a teenager set Kayne’s future in place, so–with one last kiss goodbye–he lied, and let his heart walk away from him–his best friend’s younger brother. They say time heals all wounds; what a crock. Sometimes, all time does is just confuse the matter. Especially when Kayne has a soon-to-be ex-wife and a young son to raise.

Years later, after letting Jacen walk away, he finds Jacen has finally come home. Everything is not good; Jacen has been both physically and mentally abused by his ex-boyfriend. Kayne needs to help find out just who is trying to destroy Jacen’s life. Who’s to blame–the man responsible for beating Jacen up or Kayne’s very own ex, who has hated Jacen since they were all teenagers and she found out Jacen held Kayne’s heart? Or is there someone new on the playing field? If so, which one of them are they truly after?
