The last few weeks have been busy for me from a writing perspective and also from a work perspective. I am in the middle of two large projects and they are both requiring extra effort and time so I have been working longer hours again.
From a writing perspective, I have finally managed to finish the re-writing and self editing of Through the Nethergate and Mr Fox is now doing a read of it for me and picking up a few small things I missed before I send it for final editing. He has been quite complimentary about this book and said “it is quite interesting.” High praise indeed from Mr Fox who is not a big fiction reader.
Here is the cover and the blurb:
You can find out more about this book on my other adult blog, Roberta Writes.
I have three short stories in a new murder mystery anthology that is coming out in July called Death Among Us. My three stories are all historical murder mysteries with a splash of supernatural in line with my current writing style. I made some memes over the weekend to advertise the book. I was pretty pleased with them and think I am getting better at these. Here is one of them:
I was thrilled to find a lovely review of my new Sir Chocolate book, Sir Chocolate and the Fondant Five story and cookbook and two reviews for While the Bombs Fell. It is so exciting to get a good review and it really makes all the effort of writing the book feel worthwhile.
I caught up on my book reviews over the weekend and wrote five new reviews for Goodreads and Amazon. I still have two more to write up this coming weekend and I, by the end of the week, I may have finished my latest audio book too so that will make it three. I don’t like to rush writing reviews as I need to think about them and write them up properly.
I wrote a new historical blog post and that took a bit of time as there was research involved and I did a bit of work too. Oh, I nearly forgot, I also developed a flowchart of my new book idea. That was fun and I am
forcing it to fit in finding that my ideas fit in perfectly with all my blog prompts.
My mom wanted me to take her shopping on Sunday morning so off we went together and had a nice time looking at all the new winter fashion items. Somehow, I am the one who had all the packets when we left the shops though.
The best news of all is that my Michael was awarded the designation of Councillor for his school. He has worked very hard to achieve this and I am so proud of him.
I don’t know where my time goes, well I do know but everything seems to take so long to do, doesn’t it? It feels like my days simply fly by.
Enjoy the rest of the week.
