The official release date of Bringing Billie Back may be the 13th December (Sunday), but the pre-order links are out! And, I’ve started to take direct orders through my online store – with the warning that the books are due for delivery to me on Monday… so, I’m keeping everything crossed that there is no delay.
Please take a look at my information page which contains all the links required by clicking here. To say I’m excited about the launch date is an understatement… Eek!
Is writing a novel one of your New Years Resolutions? For as long as I can remember, every New Year’s Eve I would vow to write a book by the following year. But, 12 months later, the book was nowhere to be seen. Sure, there would be a few paragraphs, scribbled notes, index cards with a ‘sort of’ plot. But a book? Nope. And so I’d have a little moan and then vow to do the same thing again. Continue reading “Hoping to finally write that book in 2016?”
My feet have really not touched the ground over the last week. The release date of ‘Bringing Billie Back’ is just over a week away and so it’s been crazy. So much to do: ebooks to upload, printing files to proof, marketing posts and much nail biting. And, I’m told that Christmas is just around the corner which I’m a little anxious about as I’d put the holidays on a back burner whilst getting the book ready. So, it now means that:
a) I need to write lots of cards
b) I need to buy presents
c) I need to buy a very large bottle of Bailey’s and drink it quickly <Note: other makes are also available, and I would drink those too>
One of the things I’m most looking forward to, once the book is released and out there, is that I will have a few weeks over Christmas and into the New Year to work on my 2016 writing plan. There’s so much I want to do next year, and I’ve no idea when I’ll get the time with other commitments, like work (I still work full time and write whenever I get a spare minute, which can include in the toilet – yes, too much information, or TMI as the yoof would say…) I need to record ‘Bringing Billie Back’ as an audio book, write another novel, write my non-fiction book and then blog properly, and not randomly, like I seem to do at the moment…
2015 has really given me the chance to learn so much about being an Indie author, and I love it. I’ve met some great people, made lots of new friends, and have so many ideas (they literally chase themselves around in my brain 24/7). So, here’s to 2016, starting off with a bang due to the new release. Which, if you’re planning on getting on the Kindle, you can find on the Amazon Store already as a pre-order (due out 13th Dec). So, please do visit the page if you’d like to take a peek!
BBC Northampton Radio – What a week! My crazy editing has come to an end until the final proof edits are suggested and put right. I’ve released the date that ‘Bringing Billie Back’ is being set free (the 13th December). And today I was lucky to be invited as a guest on the John Griff show, BBC Radio Northampton.
What a lovely guy. He had researched ‘Friendship, Love and Apple Tea’, knew everything about it and asked some great questions. And I loved it. Am kinda hoping Miranda Hart was listening as there’s an offer of a leading role in a film for her, she only has to ask…
In other news, well, it’s all been about editing, editing and more editing whilst ignoring the housework, the need for Christmas shopping and the fact our house is upside down whilst having some building work done. Puglet has sat and watched, silently pleading for more doggie walks…
So now, I need to focus everything on getting the book out on the 13th as promised… if you haven’t already, please subscribe to my mailing list through my website. I’ll be sending out an email on the release date to all that join, to give you links to the different ways of getting hold of the book. Click here to find the very large Subscribe button.
Thanks everyone, for your support, and please urge my final edits to be as quick and as painless as possible!
