Phew! August was Busy!

August was a very busy month. I managed to finish several projects and one big one that is nearly ready to go – more about that in a minute!

As you may remember I released Fibromyalgia, My Personal Experiences on Audible in June. This book tells a bit about my story and how I cope day by day. I keep a positive outlook and hope that this book will bring a little light to other lives.

Fibromyalgia My Personal Experiences

I am delighted to announce that I have now added two more books to the Audible catalogue with another two to follow shortly!

Irish Paranormal Haunts

For Paranormal lovers! Listen to the background of some of our most exciting investigations. With details of the location histories, paranormal background and my own personal experiences this book is a must for everyone who loves the unknown.

Back to the big one!

I have written the first book in the DS Louisa Williams murder mystery series.

DS Williams is finding it hard to settle into her new job. Her boss, DI Oakes thinks that a woman couldn’t possibly do a man’s job.

As well as problems with her boss, Louisa realises that something else is going on. Could her visions be the result of an injury or is she just sensitive to the paranormal? She knows that she can’t let her boss find out about her extra sensory perception but how can she explain how she knows so much about the murders?

Two women are dead. Can Louisa’s instincts leads her to the murderer before there are any more victims?

Take Time to Smell the Roses

Well, I am currently working on a few different projects.

  • The Girl in the Shadows Part 3 – Editing
  • The Girl in the Shadows Part 4  – Writing
  • A Paranormal Romance Novel (1) – Writing (Almost ready for first edit)
  • A Paranormal Romance Novel (2) – Writing
  • Irish Paranormal Haunts Part 2 – Researching

So, lots of things to keep me busy.

I used to think I’d never finish the first book but now, I have so many things on the go and I know they will all get done in their own time.

Perhaps that’s the secret.

Let things happen as they will. Do not try to force them.

And always take time to smell the roses!

A Paranormal Romance

A rough draft of the first chapter:

Joseph urged his horse on faster and harder and Elizabeth pealed with laughter as she tried to keep up. “Wait for me Joseph! My mare isn’t as fast as your stallion!”
Joseph risked a quick glance over his shoulder and flashed Elizabeth a smile, “You’ll never catch up riding side saddle anyway!”
Elizabeth slowed her mare, “Joseph Hopwood! A lady always rides this way!”
Joseph leaned back in his saddle and the stallion responded at once, slowing his gait and allowing his master to bring him to a halt.
Elizabeth brought her mare to a halt beside the bigger stallion. “Why have you stopped?”
Joseph laughed and gazed into her beautiful brown eyes, “To let you catch up of course!”
To hide her confusion, Elizabeth looked back to where the rest of the horses and riders were still two fields away. The sounds of the hunting horns came closer while the baying of the hounds faded into the distance.
“We’re losing the hounds.”
“There are far more interesting things here than a pack of hounds.” .Joseph suddenly dismounted. With two strides he was beside Elizabeth’s mare. “Come here. I want to show you something.” He reached for her.
With a stifled gasp, Elizabeth slid off the horse and into Joseph’s arms. “What do you want to show me?”
Placing her carefully on the ground, he offered her his arm. “This way. Be careful of your shoes the ground is a trifle soft.”
Together they walked to the top of a small hill, leading the horses behind them. At the summit, Joseph pointed into the distance, “One day all this will be mine.”
Elizabeth held her breath.
“This is one of my favourite places in the world because from here I can see my whole world. Is it not perfect?”
“Yes, it is perfect.”
“I like to ride up here quite often. It reminds me of my place in the world.”
Elizabeth gazed at the countryside and waited expectantly. The last three months had been leading up to this point and she had already decided to accept his proposal.
The marriage would be a good match. Her connections and his wealth, not to mention their well bred good looks, would make them a formidable couple.
Elizabeth had been brought up to play the role of lady of the manor and now at last, it seemed her parents’ wishes would come true. All those hours learning how to speak, act and dress correctly for every occasion were finally going to come to fruition.
“Elizabeth?”
She turned to look at him.
Joseph found himself drowning in those soft brown eyes. Was that a fleck of green in her left iris? He felt that he could stare into her eyes for ever and lose himself. He tore his eyes from hers and was immediately mesmerized by the curve of her ruby lips. He reached out and tenderly tucked a stray strand of her hair back behind her ear. His fingers tingled as he brushed her flushed cheeks.
Just then a fox burst through the fence at the bottom of the hill and within seconds a loud baying heralded the arrival of the hounds in full cry.
With a laugh, Joseph turned to Elizabeth, “Come on! I’ll help you mount!” and so saying, he grabbed her around the waist and lifted her quickly into the saddle. His stallion was already moving as he swung himself astride and with a loud bellow, he kicked the animal in the ribs and set off at a gallop with Elizabeth not far behind.
“Tally-ho, tally-ho!” Joseph’s stallion needed no urging. The fox scaled a ditch quickly followed by the hounds. Joseph set his horse at the ditch, with a massive leap the magnificent stallion cleared the ditch with room to spare. Glancing back, Joseph noted that Elizabeth had turned her smaller horse towards an easier place to jump.
Soon the rest of the hunt had caught up and together, hoses and dogs thundered across the land, flying over fences and streaking across meadows in pursuit of the wily fox.
Suddenly the hounds became quiet and began to mill around aimlessly. “The fox has gone to ground!” The cry echoed around the countryside. Spectators on nearby hills pointed to where they had seen the fox vanish into a covert.
An hour later the Master of Foxhounds called off the hunt and the group reluctantly returned home.

A Productive Week!

The task of marketing seems never ending for indie authors. There is always another site to submit to, a post to write, an ad to tweak – not to mention giveaways to keep up with, social media to be updated, queries to be answered. Sometimes it is hard to get down to the real work – writing!

This week has been fantastic. After spending the last three months concentrating on marketing I have finally settled back down to writing.

The Girl in the Shadows Part 3 – First draft almost complete. First edit well underway.

The Girl in the Shadows Part 4 Sean’s Story – First draft well underway.

A New Novel – Wait for it! An Historical Paranormal Romance! – First draft well underway.

The marketing has also been continuing at the same time and ratings and reviews are coming in – All 5 star this week!

The Girl in the Shadows Part 1 Goodreads giveaway ending tonight – 1726 people requesting it as I write (with a few hours still to run).

Goodreads ad promotion still running.

At times it can be hard when you are struggling to get your books out there but the secret is DON’T GIVE UP!

My dream of one day earning my living from writing is moving closer baby step by baby step.

In the meantime, it’s back to the writing!
