Looking back, looking forward...
The end of the year looms large and I thought it was about time I posted a writing update. 2015 has been an amazing and sometimes challenging year. The month of May saw the release of my first published book, A Royal Romance, from Bold Strokes Books. It was such a thrill to hold my own book in my hands, and I couldn't wait to have that feeling again and again.
Huge thanks to all who took the time to read the book, and those readers who emailed me with their kind words.
My two online stories, The Dylan Morgan Show and The Dalton family Saga, were long overdue for both their conclusions, and so I wrote and posted Family forever – A Dylan Morgan show story, the last adventure for Dylan and Emily. It was sad to say goodbye, but I thought it was time to let them live their lives quietly, happy and settled. :-)
I know a lot of readers are waiting on the next Dalton Saga, and I did intend to have it released by now, but ill health has really held my writing back in the latter part of this year. All being well, I will aim to get it finished in the New Year.
So looking forward, 2016 will be a busy year. As well the new instalment of the Dalton Saga, May 2016 will see the release of my second published book, Heart Of The Pack – A Wolfgang County story.
Here is the blurb -
Selena Miller accepts a job in Wolfgang County, jumping at the chance to get away from her overbearing family. Crippled by anxiety, she's determined to start a new, independent life.
As Second of the Wolfgang pack, Caden Wolfgang is used to having her orders followed without question. When the Alpha allows a human to work in the heart of their business, Caden is horrified. Haunted by a childhood tragedy at the hands of a human, Caden makes it her mission to keep Selena from threatening everything they've built.
When contempt turns into attraction and passion flares, can their love survive Selena learning the truth of what the Wolfgangs really are?
A paranormal romance is a departure from the world of, A Royal romance, but I return to the theme of aristocracy in my second release of 2016, Courting the Countess, due later in the year.
Take a look at the blurb –
Professor of archaeology Henrietta "Harry" Knight becomes Countess of Axedale upon her father’s death and takes a sabbatical from Cambridge University to begin refurbishing the long-neglected and run down Axedale Hall. The child of a loveless marriage, witness to her father’s infidelities and her mother’s pain, Harry has no intention of ever falling in love.
Annie Brannigan is a survivor, remaining positive through hardships. As an agency housekeeper, she moves from post to post with her daughter Riley, taking care of people who have everything she will never have. Annie’s greatest wish is to find her happy ever after.
Can love restore the countess’s heart and the crumbling Axedale Hall, or will the first foundations of love turn to dust?
I really do appreciate the support of anyone who has taken the trouble to read my books and stories. Here's to a great 2016!
