Yes that is not a rumour, that is fact. I am, this year, working on the third and final book in the Twins series.
A big hi and thanks must go to those people who have read the first two and liked them enough to take the time to contact me and ask about this third last book. Yes it is coming. No, I don’t have a publication date, but it won’t be until 2012. I’ve been typing away on the draft after coming up with the skeleton outline and am hoping it’s all going to go well. For me that is. Some of the characters are not going to fare so well. There will be deaths, but I’m not telling who will be skipping in the fields of the after life. Although, while not committing myself to anything, I am open to receiving bribes for that information in the form of chocolate, champagne and quirky sci-fi themed t-shirts.
I’m also going to be working on the third book in my YA series, The Chronicles of Rosie Black. No title hints yet but you will be too distracted when the second book, Equinox, comes out later this year to worry too much about that yet. Hopefully.
As I have two books in the fire, I’m typing until my fingers bleed – or that’s the plan. Stay tuned for assorted descriptions of days when I just dont’ get enough done. Like today. Word count is so tragic it can almost be considered negative. Hopefully no editors are reading this.
In other news, to distract myself from my paltry need to stare mindlessly at the computer screen, I made a lovely batch of smoked salmon nori rolls, went for a swim with my dog (turns out he is not happy to be used in place of an inflatable sea biscuit – who knew?) and purchased some much needed printer ink, prawns and a tube of wasabi paste. Yes, life in the fast lane here, folks. Just wait until I regale you with my tales of floor washing and dish wiping!
PS there was one exciting thing that happened recently. A snake got into the outdoor loo (that’s toilet for proper folks and bathroom for North Americans) then disappeared. Am still looking for the wormhole it escaped through. Anyone in other dimensions who may have seen it, please do not send it back.
It’s been a long time between blogs here, mostly because I’ve been caught up in blogging on my Rosie Black Chronicles dedicated site. Since Genesis came out I’ve run the blog tour and also have been working on getting the second in the series, Equinox, ready to go the publishers. It’s been a big edit this time with lots of changes which hopefully will be for the better, but I have to get it in to get it printed and out to you. It’s due out next year, no date yet, but I’ll let you know when I do.
In other exciting news, Book 2 in my Twins of Saranthium series, Betrayal, was released in Germany in hardback last month. A gorgeous cover as always which I’ll post here when I can. I am planning on going back to work on the third and final book in the series in the new year. It’s titled Redemption, but you’ll still have to wait a while I’m sorry to say, it’s not due out until 2012.
