Rewriting and Recovering

womanwriting

Hello, my lovelies.

After boasting that I had finished my latest book, rewrites appeared from my editor, and I had to re-open the document and get back to work. I was expecting edits, of course, but they coincided with a busy time personally (I help out with my the local youth theatre group and it’s been the lead-up to show week) and a teensy fainting episode which resulted in me bashing my head.

In case you missed it, I did a short ‘update’ episode of my podcast, The Worried Writer, at the beginning of the month: The Worried Writer #21: Deadlines and Mild Concussion

I have been off the internet and social media in an effort to focus on my book and get the rewrites done by the deadline and it’s been very helpful. Much as I love the internet (and I do, truly, love it!) it was good to take a step back and reduce the number of external voices in my head. Especially with the turbulent (and terrifying) political times of the last couple of weeks.

I’ve also done lots of reading, which is always a good thing.

I will have to put together a ‘recommendations’ post soon, but for now I’m currently enjoying The Outrun by Amy Liptrot.

Also, a quick reminder that The Language of Spells is now available in audio format. If you don’t already have an Audible account, you can sign for up for a one-month free trial and get it completely gratis! (Or any other audiobook you fancy, of course).

The Language of Spells: Audible UK                      Audible US

Personally, I love audiobooks and if you have any recommendations, I’d love to hear them!

And, as always, thank you for visiting.

The Language of Spells Audio Book

It’s out! My very first (published) novel is now available as an audio book and I’m thrilled.

If you don’t already have an Audible subscription, you can sign up for a FREE one month trial and get The Language of Spells completely gratis!

It’s also available from iTunes and Amazon.

I also have a limited number of review copies available. If you are interested in one of those, send me an email.

In other news, I am very close to finishing my current WIP. I got very stuck with this story earlier in the year and couldn’t work out how it ended, which was, frankly, terrifying.

However, I have been working through the edits from my agent and I had a breakthrough. I now have an ending (pro tip – books need endings!) and lots of ideas for improving the rest of the book. Thank goodness! I was seriously worried for a while there…
