Oh dear. It would appear that I’m very slack at updating my blog. Hhmmm. May have to do something about that in the near future. Or you know, blame facebook. Yes, that is where I hole up 98% of the time. It’s very distracting.
Anyway onto the updates…
THE WINTER PRINCESS is receiving mixed reviews. Yes, I know it will probably teach me for sumitting a (free) first draft to Smashwords and putting it into circulation on goodreads.com but I still think it has potential… even if I am sketchy on the description/details.
Anyway, it’s back on the editing/review table. And has yet to be pulled… so we’ll see.
Yep, I’ve decided that if I can update my author page on facebook as often as I do then I’m going to aim to update my blog more often as well.
Stay tuned, I’m aiming for once a week.
Ugh! Sorry everyone… seems I update facebook more than I do my blog. I’ll try and fix that in future okay?
Since the end December, I have had 2 short stories “Cursed” and “Dark Desire” rejected. But I have also submitted 3 peices of flash fictions which I am waiting to hear back on.
Work on 4 pieces: “Once”, “Love and Clockwork”, “Mistreatment” and “Intangible” are on track to being completed.
Novels in the works at present include: “Bo”, “Bloodletting” and the sequel to “The Winter Princess” otherwise known as Zoe/Zooey.
Also for those interested, “The Winter Princess” along with a rough copy of the first chapter of “Bo” are available for free download at Smashwords.com
I stress that both are by no means perfect, but I had such an adventure with writing Zooey that I had to share it.
So… the last week has been a busy one.
4 kids under 6 is the main reason and Christmas is the other.
That said, I have managed to complete one short story for submission “Dark Desire” and I’m writing a whole heap of other things, both short and long fiction.
As well as having put up THE WINTER PRINCESS on Smashwords.com for FREE!
I enjoyed writing it, but it is very much a first draft…
Should you be interested… pop on over to… http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/108738 and you can download it.
I have a dozen or more projects on the go at the moment. Several that need to be completed by 31st December 2011.
And having submitted my rough first draft of THE WINTER PRINCESS to Smashwords.com for free I’m pleased to see the positive 4 star reviews I’ve gotten so far. In case you are out of the loop I am very guarded when it comes to my writing, mainly because I lack confidence in my ability to pen a good story.
So, I have two short stories being published in an Anthology with Pill Hill Press… going to print on the 5th December. Freya and Blood Sacrifice and I cannot wait.
I’ve also put up The Winter Princess on Smashwords.com as a free e-book until December 1st.
And I have several other projects in the works… will update my projects page momentarily.
So, I got word today that my flash fiction “Freya” is going to be published as part of an anthology. I am stoked… and just for kicks I submitted another story “Blood Sacrifice”… will wait and see how that goes.
I’ve also submitted “Cursed” to another publisher… so I’m hoping to hear back on that one soon.
Cannot believe I got published. My dreams are becoming a reality.
