Well, it happened. I spent all week wrapped up in blankets with tissues and Lemsip.
But honestly, it’s been a great week. I got to read loads, write loads and work on the edits for Scorpio’s Grace. And because everyone kept telling me to rest, I didn’t even have to leave the house if I didn’t want to. Utter. Bliss.
Being ill isn’t nice, but I managed to balance rest and productivity and get loads done while taking the time out to recover. I don’t think I’ve ever been so grateful to be ill.
The release day for my debut novel, Scorpio’s Grace, is a little over a month away and I can’t help but get excited about it. I’m not going to self-promo like crazy on here but I’m definitely going to be jumping up and down, squealing like a child on Christmas up until the day itself!
I’ve been writing as a form of escapism since I was about twelve years old and convinced my parents to get me a discount laptop for *ahem* “school.” It’s hard to imagine a day going by without taking a plunge into my own magical world.
But looking at the edits of this actual, full-length book and knowing that in a few months time I will actually get to hold it in my hands is just an incredible thought. It’s going to be a busy time in the run-up but it’s going to be worth it!
Scorpio’s Grace is an urban fantasy novel (naturally) featuring Freya, a druid who is on the run from a renowned power-trafficker. To escape being auctioned off to the highest bidder, Freya has to turn to an old flame and some fellow escapees for help.
It’s magic, romance and action in Paris and London!
Although, there won’t be any book release at all if I don’t get these edits done.
Thanks for humouring my gushing, I’m so excited and can’t wait to really get my writing career underway!
Thanks for reading!
