First of all, I’d like to apologise to all my readers for my long silence this year. I’ve wanted to put up a post for a while, but I’ve been swamped with (bill-paying) work and writing. Fear not though, there’s a lot in the pipelines for this year, so this is a quick catch up for everyone who is interested (thank you to everyone who’s asked about the blog).
As some readers of the Mentalist Series know, I’m hoping to release Keepers (Book Three of The Mentalist Series) this winter and work on that is underway. In addition to that, I’ve written a prequel novella to The Mentalist Series which will hopefully be available by late spring/early summer, so keep an eye out for it. I’ve also signed up to contribute to what looks to be a promising fairy-tale anthology, organised by The Bearded Scribe, which has a summer deadline. This all means I’ve been incredibly busy this year! See why I haven’t blogged much?
Sticking with writing, I recently got acknowledged as a contributor to the amazing literacy charity, Worldreader, which provides free e-readers (loaded with books) to children in developing countries. So thrilled to be listed with the likes of Nnedi Okorafor! Any authors/writers reading this should please consider donating their work to this brilliant cause. There are other great and exciting things happening in the background which I can’t reveal at the moment but, if they come to pass, you’ll be hearing about them here first. Promise!
I’ll end with something fun. A friend posted this on her Facebook page and I was shocked (in a good way) to see I had read 35 of the 100 books – BBC Believes You Only Read 6. I have about five more books on the list in my library at home waiting to be read, so I better get to them. What’s your count?
