A year later

Nearly a year after publishing my first book, I’ve learnt so much.

A lot of googling, Facebook groups/friends and twitter friends, have made me improve so much. Marketing still scares me, but not as much. Books have sold, reviews have appeared – most are good too. That takes a bit to get used too.

I’ve still got a lot to learn, but my writing is now stronger an better. So here’s to my next release.

What am I upto?

With Falling for a Duke now successfully launched and I’ve only lost one preorder, had several sales since and KU reads, I’m quite a happy bunny.

So, what’s next?

Well, I’ve been gifted three lovely cover for my ‘Magic of Scotland’ series, but I’m not up to working on them yet. Instead, I’m working on ‘The Legend of Tiarne’. It’s a bit out of my comfort zone, still a romance, so it’s taking time and I’m spending time sorting out the first few chapters. In other words I’ve ditched I’ve ditched 20000 words for the moment. They will go back in later.

But most of my time is doing my final edits of the next ‘Romancing in Scotland’ book, before sending it to the editor. At over 90000 words, it’s the longest book yet and this will take time.

Wish me luck, I’m gonna need it.

Falling for a Duke update

With the arc’s on the way out, I’m hoping for reviews to be in by the release date of the eBook.

I’m also arranging a Facebook release launch, and I may be offering a few prizes and more information on the book. Maybe reviews and teasers, if they are back.

 

Falling for a Duke

So, my beta comments are back. She liked the story and gave me really excellent comments, and a few questions which I have now altered. Just a sentence or so, no big chances.

However, she did mention giving Bella more happy memories, so I have. One so delightful, I’m dead jealous.

I’m not spoiling it, you’ll have to read the book, but even I think I have outdone myself with this one. In fact, I’m adding something along the same lines to the second Romancing in Scotland book. No spoilers on that one either, but I will say it’s on the second draft/first edit and going well. Look out for that release in 2019.
