Happy New Year everyone! I hope however you spent it you had a good one!
Like a lot of people, I am making New Year’s Resolutions, but unlike the previous years I am determined to make it until the end of the year without them falling by the wayside.
The main one is very simple: catch up.
Due to circumstances and illness, I am massively behind with my writing and reading. As it stands with Perfect World 3 the cover is done, the summary is done and the final version is due back from my betas at some point in the next month or so. I then need to do the final edits/read through. Then I can start thinking about the cover reveal and release date. I am still hesitant to put a timetable on it due to ongoing circumstances I have, but I am hopeful that it will be during the first half of the year.
I wrote a scene for the first time in a little while last night. It wasn’t for a novel, I sometimes just write scenes with two characters to see how they interact with each other without any specific plot or idea in mind. Last night, I chose Thane and Atsuo from my Demon’s Blood universe. Thane and Atsuo have not yet shared any ‘screen time’ together so far in the series, but they work well together so that’s good news for future novels!
I am still a few reviews behind schedule from last year, but I am getting there and once again I apologise to everyone who is currently waiting on a review from me. I have temporarily closed review requests to give myself time to catch up. Requests will open again once I have caught up and the release date for Perfect World 3 has been decided.
My other goal for the year is to be more healthy. I want to start exercising again, and also going for more walks. I have the beach two minutes down the road from me, so I intend to make the most of this for evening strolls!
I’m also hoping to make a reappearance on social media after being absent for so long!
