What have I been doing? A writing update and thank you

Is it time for a writing update?

Can you believe 2013 is almost over? I’m kinda in shock and wondering where the year has gone. I’ve been so busy writing my regency romances that I’ve skimped on writing updates here on my website. So if I haven’t been here then what exactly did I do for the past twelve months? I wrote a lot of regency romances. Hmm, let me see what I did manage to accomplish this year.

New Stories

  • Guarding the Spoils
  • Miss Watson’s First Scandal
  • Hunting the Hero
  • Miss George’s Second Chance

Two novels and two novellas. Plenty of new regency romances to keep you up late. 🙂

Revised and republished

  • One Wicked Night – wicked short story
  • Love Me Tender – part one of the Love Me duo

After publisher Noble Romance shut up shop and returned my book rights I had both books reedited prior to publishing again. I hope everyone has enjoyed the updated and now fairly priced works if they missed them the first time round.

That’s a huge amount of work right there when you count in new book covers, formatting and uploads. My editors have been simply amazing this year.  Love their dedication to their craft and patience with my work.

Over the course of this year, and this year is still going because I’ve not stopped working yet, I’ve written over 290K new words in stories alone. More words written than published wish means I’m ahead for 2014. Woo hoo! Good times. No wonder my writing updates have been few and far between. LOL

Many thanks to you wonderful readers who’ve picked up the odd copy of my work and been kind enough to contact me or leave a lovely review around the web. Those words of encouragement keep me writing and discovering new ways to make my characters find the one their meant to love. More of that to come. Everyone deserves a happy ending in my regency world.

Take care

Writing Update

Oh, wow. What a crazy busy couple of weeks I’ve had. First off, thank you for your support of Guarding the Spoils. Since release, it’s literally flown off the virtual shelves and is currently sitting at number 11 on the Amazon Regency romance bestsellers list. But now the question everyone wants answered is ‘When do we get Rosemary’s story?’ September, people. Miss Randall is not quite ready to come out and play with the family just yet.

GtS Amazon Chart postion

And speaking of siblings, the first two books in the Wild Randalls series have surged up the charts of late thanks to the temporary drop in the digital book price timed to coincide with the release of Oliver and Elizabeth’s story. Engaging the Enemy reached No 1 in Regency Historical Romance at Amazon, three places shy of the top 100 kindle books. So astonished! I hope if you haven’t grabbed the stories yet you’ll snap them up now while the price is low.

In other news, I’m making changes to my newsletter scheduling from next month. Up until now, I’ve pretty much sent out a newsletter on the 20th of each month (give or take a few months). From now on, newsletters will be sent to coincide with new releases only, or fabulously good news. The next newsletter sent will be May 20 and then July 1st. I’m hoping that by cutting the newsletter numbers in half that I gain more writing time. 

It’s the weekend here, and I’m hoping to get out and about in the sunshine while the weather stays good. Hope your weekend is awesome.
