I'm just checking in. I'm still rattling around, if you follow me on social media you'll be aware of this.
A lot of stuff has happened. A lot of (life) bone shattering stuff but also some soul shaking stuff of the most amazing variety.
At 31, I'm finally getting in touch with the total core of me and I'm loving every super scary moment of it. My writing has suffered some.
Well, actually, more accurately my book release schedule for this year has taken a hit. But I am chipping away with some poetry. I started with poetry when I first began writing but sort of just stopped one day and went to shorts and eventually on to my novels after a lot of self-doubt and a huge break from writing.
I'm loving getting back in touch with the poetry side of writing. I feel like I can speak more from my heart with that and I think that's what I need at this point in time. The really cool thing is I'm getting a bit of a collection going and plan to release this. Yay!
Now, onto the books.
All The Games: I'm hating Sheri at the moment. There, I said it. I was so excited to write her story and dive into her crooks and crannies more but man, she's kicking my butt. There's really no other way to put it. Add in the bone shattering aspects of real-life and I had no energy to deal with her.
I've got back in touch with her and she's doing well when she's not stumbling and falling through her life -- a bit like me. Oh, is there something in that?
This book was originally set for release for June 12 which is simply not going to happen. I could rush it out for you guys but I'm not going to do that. I think more of you, more of my characters and more of myself. At this stage, I'm not prepared to put a date on this but please know I have a rough deadline in my head and it WILL be out before the end of the year. I am hoping sooner rather than later. But I'm going with the flow and I hope you guys will too!
The next project I'm super excited about is #Endolife. This doesn't have a release date but it might make sense to release this during next March, since this is Endometriosis awareness month. The other books I had set for this year I can't comment on at this stage as they are sitting abandoned but I can promise I will get to them. Some are already half completed.
The poetry collection should definitely be out sometime this year too as most of that work is already done.
I have some plans for my blog so I'll be posting more regularly and I'll be sure to update on any and all book progress.
I moved house and I'm settling in to my new surrounds and a different office. I found the best walking/running track (photo included) and I have patiently awaited the connection of my internet (sort of).
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for those of you who enjoy my writing, those of you who enjoy me in your life and those of you who have offered me support when everything turned upside down and inside out. I won't forget any of it.
Much love! X
