Well, what can I say?
I'm totally terrible and I've completely let the blogging thing go! In fact I've completely let the writing thing go too!
I think to be honest last year, what with finishing WitchLove, writing 'Genevieve' and then writing the final book 'WitchHunt', all along with preparing for the IOW Literary Festival and moving 200 miles south kind of floored me!
I was intending on moving in, publishing WitchHunt at the end of October and then taking the rest of the year off to settle in and think of a new series idea; but in reality the new house was a mess and has needed a lot of TLC. I think as well, the longer I stayed away from writing the harder it seemed to get back into it.
I had a great idea for a new three book series, but I just didn't know how to get it going, and I was a little wary as it is a complete change for me in genre. It turned out that redecorating the tiny spare bedroom and turning it into a craft / writing room did the trick! Initially I intended it to be a craft / sewing room (as I love all things crafty!) but I found that with the sun streaming in the window and the lovely view of the fields all I wanted to do was set up my laptop!
Merely a week later, here I am, blogging away and I've even written the four main character sketches and the first two paragraphs! I'm starting to feel the excitement of getting pulled into another imaginary world!
