This month, I decided to take a week off to spend with my son. It was school holidays, and I figured I'd get a lot more time to work on Three Days and do a whole bunch of other stuff I wanted to do with the older books.
This has not been the case.
Instead, I ended up spending a chunk of my holiday in bed, sick. For a couple of weeks before, I'd been bothered by bronchitis, but worked through it. I was tired, but it wasn't at the point where I needed medication for it. By the Monday of my holiday, I had a chest and sinus infection and even now, nearly a week later, I am coughing and feeling like I want to hibernate for the rest of spring.
The sun is gorgeous today, and there's a light breeze, but I'm staying inside where my hayfever can't join in the party!
What I have done is a whole lotta writing on Three Days. I loved Rowan, but a humbled Andrew starting again is actually pretty hot. Especially when you combine him with his new love interest, Maddy. Where she came from, I don't know, but she is funny as hell and goes for what she wants. At the same time, she has a sweet, sensitive side and I have to confess to a bit of a crush on her too!
Anyway, I just wanted to post to show people I was still alive and working. I fall in love with everything I write, but this one is really special. Sparks will fly, and something I never dreamed possible happened. I have deleted scenes to prove how much this story has evolved since I started it! So maybe once the books out, I'll share one of them. I was loathe to part with it, but the story went in the opposite direction and it was impossible to keep it.
Other things I am working on include: Reformatting my older books, both ebook and paperback. So the Hot for the Boss books, which includes a paperback of all four novellas, the Sultan's Bride, and After The Fall will be getting a do-over and Another Chance will be formatted to look more like Taking Chances. The paperback for Loving Rowan will also be available very soon!
This year has been pretty full on, but I think I'll be ready for Christmas and a busy 2015!
