30th June 2018 – How close?

Another week rolls by… It is quite unbelievable where the time goes.

I finished writing the book back in April, but here I am at the end of June and I have just finished writing it again. Most folks don’t realise that when you write a book, of any size, there are so many words that you can easily lose track of what you have written. So one of the jobs of a writer is to read back through the whole thing to make sure timelines are right and that you haven’t written something and then said the exact opposite e.g. the blonde woman walks into the room and suddenly you find that you have been describing her rich auburn hair… Aargh! Totally wrong.

Next… another read through, just to be sure. This is also when I’ll be looking for keywords that hopefully will give me the title of the book. I have a few ideas currently, however I’m still not settled on one title.

Wish me luck!

23rd June 2018 – Nearly there!

Hi everyone! Yes, novel 3 is nearly completed.
Over  the coming weeks I will be introducing my new baby to you all.
You know… the title, some insights to the story line, previews of the cover, as well as some introductions to the main characters.
I thought it was about time I started getting seriously ramped up for the launch of my next book! So I am getting back to my weekly blogs.
 Those of you following me on Facebook will be surprised to see that I have this website. But I will be using this for my weekly blogs as well as keeping you updated on projects and events coming up.
 Well, here goes…
Less distractions for the last week have seen me back at the computer again! The book fine tuning is reaching the final stages. At last! It shouldn’t be too much longer now. By July I should be hitting the pavement and taking my book to various publishers to make this project a reality.
I think I am starting to go a little stir crazy though.
Here is something that I thought was really amazing!
Did you know, that in the incredibly colourful maze of the English language, the thesaurus has 45 different words as an alternative to the common little three-letter-word “red”? This does not include phrases so there are actually a lot more. Here they are if you are interested http://www.thesaurus.com/browse/red
