Been feeling a bit “Blah” lately – probably because of a reaction to the flu jab – so been finding it hard to concentrate.
Started plotting a new novel but it’s not coming together yet – I’ve never actually tried plotting one before – perhaps try again in a week or two.
Did some marketing but lack of funds kind of limits that! Still, did the usual social media whirl etc.
Started a Thunderclap for “A Little Book of Horror” – due for release October 12th
Pre-order Here or Support Thunderclap Here (it’s FREE)
Finally sent off an assignment for a course I’m doing.
Still feeling “Blah”.
Opened up new novel file – I’m twenty thousand words into a new historical romance – and a couple of hours and two thousand words later, I’m not feeling “Blah” any more!
Just do it!
Stop procrastinating and just make an effort. It will come. Give it the right time and place and anything can be accomplished!
Must get back to the novel now!

An Extract from a new Novel I’m Working on!
It’s a Paranormal Historical Romance!
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.
