Shearwater and Scarlet Thread are my most popular books – I’m working on Part 2 of Shearwater now (in Ireland!) and thought I’d post some updates. Firstly, this book is kicking my ass. I’ve only gotten 10 chapters passed the end of Part One and have 20 to go. Here’s a sneak preview…
I’ve never been satisfied with the cover, so I tried to make a new one… but when I posted it on Facebook almost everyone preferred the original. I’ll try some more and ask for feedback once I have some final options.
This is our (amazing) apartment in Portrush. So much space, great for writing.
This is our neighborhood:
I had hoped to finish Shearwater but the end of September, but it’s not going as quickly as I’d hoped. I wanted to have it out by Halloween but that’s looking unlikely, so probably in November…
In November we’ll be living in a castle in France, and I plan to finish Scarlet Thread (by far the most popular). I’d like to get a new cover for it as well. If I have time this year I’ll finish Orpheum and Prescient.
Since my first books are free, I’m not earning any money from my writing yet and still need to work, which means, less writing time. Hopefully by the end of the year I’ll have four full books out earning some money, so I can focus on writing and get more stories out to you (I have so many stories!)
