How I Dropped The Ball

If there’s one thing I’m good at, it’s planning. If there’s one thing I’m terrible at, it’s sticking to that plan. It’ll work great for a week or two when life is nice and predictable. Then something comes up that chucks a nice, big spanner in the works.

This week’s spanner is trying to move house – I’ve talked about it a bit in the last few weeks!

Here I thought having a weekend away would give me time to read. Oh, no. The opposite, in fact. That’s why this week there’s no book review, I just didn’t have time.

It’s annoying that for the first time in years I haven’t been able to read a book a week and review it. But times are a-changing and when we finally move to a house where I have my own office, no traffic outside and no drunks singing their hearts out at 3am, there’s a chance I’ll become even more productive.

So, instead, today I thought I’d talk a bit about what I’m working on in my author life. Moving is another vital step to becoming a full-time author, and to say I’m looking forward to it is an understatement!

At the moment I have an urban fantasy and an academy book out, both of which are the first in their respective series.

Scorpio’s Grace is my debut novel and I’m currently working on the sequel Scorpio’s Virtue which I’m hoping to release later this year. A Druid’s Secret I wrote to include in the Darkness Rising boxed set which hit the USA Today Bestseller list. The plan for the rest of the series is all set out and ready to write!

Bu perhaps most exciting is the new series I’m working on called The Rogue Valkyrie. Valkyries don’t get enough “air-time” in books just yet, but here’s hoping they get popular some time soon.

The first book in the series, Valkyrie Cursed, follows a valkyrie curse-breaker, Rowan McQuaid soon after she loses her curse-breaker licence. When she accidentally releases a tomb full of vampires hell-bent on revenge, she has to work with Nathanial, the vampire who imprisoned them, to make things right.

Three series is a lot to take on but I’m loving having the variety and choice to jump from one project to another. Let’s just hope I don’t get any more spontaneous ideas for a new series and double the work load.

If you haven’t seen any of my books yet, I’ve got a whole page dedicated to them on this blog which you can find a-right here.

Next week I’ll be back to posting book reviews every week. Consider this a glitch in the Matrix!

Thanks for reading!
