Lots of excitement last month of the book front, I had some super positive feedback from a publisher that made me SUPER Excited and happy.

Book 2 has kinda picked up and kind of not, which has been a bit of a struggle trying to get motivated with it.

Yesterday I spent the day writing what my main character’s conflicts are… Which I am not sure whether it will help or not… So if anyone else can think of ways to motivate me to move on with book 2 I’m looking forward to hearing from you x

Which leads into this months question:

If you could use a wish to help you write just one scene/chapter of your book, which one would it be?

I think right now my wish would be for me to find direction and help in regards to book2 what I am doing and where it’s going.

I hope everyone else is doing okay….

Happy Insecure Writers Day! #IWSG @TheIWSG

How quick does the first Wednesday in the month come round? At least I am not ill this time!

So where are we with my writing.

I sent New Beginnings out to agents and publishers and got a little bit excited when one of them asked to read my full manuscript. So I am more or less pressing send and receive all the time! I hate how long it takes for publishers and agents to respond!

While walking the dog yesterday I found myself day dreaming about my book launch… I am also going to an event tonight and meeting some authors and also a lady that I’ve sent New Beginnings to directly. I am really not sure how what your supposed to do in these situations, other than scream have you read my WIP, will you publish it! ALSO there, there is going to be another author whose books I love! OMG it’s crazy kinda stupid.

I am also back to writing again, so novel 2 is on its way i’ve been writing this differently I have been writing scenes and not the novel from beginning to end like I wrote New Beginnings. It has all the character’s in it from my first novel so all a bit exciting there.

Anyway enough of my rambling, on to the question of the month.

Whose perspective do you like to write from best, the hero (protagonist) or the villain (antagonist)? And why?

I guess in New Beginnings I write in the “hero’s” POV partly because as I wrote it I didn’t know who had done it or why they’d done it. In this one again it’s probably from the hero’s again.

I am not sure how I would even go about writing from the villain’s pov…. food for thought.

Rocky Road to Success

Hey,

So I have started to submit my novel to agents and publishers alike and truth be known I am kinda finding it stressful and it’s making me very MANIC!

After I entered that first competition and was like yeah here we go, I think it’s kinda a come down. I know it’s only since the 19th April when I started which isn’t even a month ago! I had this great idea of I would submit 5 of each and then wait till they all reject me and then try another five. But that idea has kinda gone out of the window. As I keep finding people to submit to, never mind whether they were on my list or not. I have also been trying to find people who are already publishing what I write….

I have had two rejections for agents and one rejection from a publisher out of the 12 (as of yesterday) I had sent out.

Book two woe’s continue, as I try and find information on immigration and asylum and try and find people to speak to. One person I had to defend my character to! As she wasn’t willing to help because she didn’t want my readers to think that people came to England to traffic drug. Needless to say I haven’t heard from said charity again! Though I have a great friend who is a social worker and she has been answering my general questions. You know what I think I need to just WRITE! and worry about getting it correct later!

I hope everyone else out there is doing okay 🙂

yours as always

Book Two ;)

When a dead body is found washed up in the river Trent, DI Chris Jackson and his new partner DS Jennifer Garner are called to investigate. What seems like an open and shut suicide case, suddenly becomes more complex when the team are made aware of a boy who was found on the same night wondering the streets of Nottingham. The case becomes more complex and DS Garner begins to question one of her past cases and wonders if everything did end or did she miss a huge part of the jigsaw?

From the best seller author of New Beginnings comes a tale of murder, prostitution and the things we do for love.
