On the road again: adventures in NaNoWriMo

I've been meaning to write this post for at least a week now, but life and more particularly events and book launches have got in the way. But now here I am, and having got my words for the day done, I have a bit of space to talk about NaNoWriMo. Or NaNoDicto, as it's become …

Stand by your keyboards – The QWERTY Murders is live!

From nearly live to actually launched - The QWERTY Murders is GO! Not that I'm excited or anything. 😉 The QWERTY Murders is book 5 in the Pippa Parker Mysteries series and I'll be honest, I threw a lot into this one. I didn't quite get the kitchen sink in, but I'll save that for book 6. …

Words complete!

The first draft of the first Maisie Frobisher book (now provisionally titled All At Sea) has marched to its conclusion! Literally, as I've been dictating it on walks. I had planned to finish the book today, but as it turned out the book had other ideas, and demanded to be finished on Friday. It drove …

Adventures in knitting…new book progress!

A couple of blog posts ago I mentioned that I'd started a new book, and that I was dictating it (here is the blog if you missed it). Things are moving on apace. Most days I've been going out for a walk, with the chapter outline in my head and phone in hand. Usually I …

A squirrel, a notebook, and a new series!

Some time ago I was in Paperchase, which had a sale on, and I bought myself a lovely notebook. Here it is. A4, hardback, with a magnetic closing flap, a ribbon, and an inside pocket for documents. I mean, I couldn't LEAVE it there. And it was only £4 in the sale. Like many writers, …
