For anyone who hasn’t been to this blog in a while ‘When Love Flue In’ will be released this coming Friday, 5th December. Many blog posts will ensue where I wax lyrical about chimney sweeps or all things Christmas related. I’ll also be giving away a couple of copies at various places, the first of which is currently going on at Stumblingoverchaos.
I fully intend to finish the first draft of New Lease of Life. I know I said this last month but I was struck down by a chest infection that laid me low for a fortnight leaving me with little energy and even less inclination to write. During this period the few words that could be pulled from my brain were utter tosh. I did manage to break the 50K mark though and as far as my vague plotting goes I think I’m only about four scenes from the end. Of course, one of those is the sex scene which will slow me down considerably.
The rest of the month I’m leaving free. I get the feeling that some beta work will be coming my way in the near future (thanks to a little bird called Twitter) and I always make the time to get that back as soon as reasonably possible. I’m almost certainly expecting some edits (more about that in a later post, probably early January) and some cover art discussions/decisions will be required. Maybe I'll get some research done on what could possibly be the main subject of my next story.
As for the rest of my free time (hah!) I intend to do lots of reading. Anyone that saw December’s planned reading post will know I have a huge pile (metaphorically speaking) of holiday themed stories to get through. Hopefully these will provide a sweet, fluffy sugar rush without any of the resulting calories and keep me happy and smiling well into the New Year.
