Camp NaNoWriMo – The End!

Made it - and earlier than planned! Pippa Parker book 5, The QWERTY Murders, is now in its full first draft! I think I wrote my last post on Monday, hoping to finish on Thursday. As it turned out, on Tuesday I got to my planned word count for the day (3000) and found myself IN …

Camp NaNoWriMo – nearly there!

It's day 22 in the Camp NaNoWriMo house, and things are going surprisingly well. Could it be... (cue sharp intake of breath) too well? My project for Camp NaNoWriMo is Pippa Parker book 5, The QWERTY Murders. I'm fairly sure I wrote book 4, Murder in the Meadow, at the same time last year, quite possibly also …

Camp NaNoWriMo – the story so far!

It's day 8 in the Camp NaNoWriMo house, and so far (she says cautiously) things seem to be going OK. I'm writing Pippa Parker book 5, working title The QWERTY Murders. It's been an interesting start. For one thing, when I was working out the schedule to get 50,000 words done in a month, I realised …

One year old: happy birthday, Caster and Fleet!

I can’t believe it, but it’s true. I had a sort-of-feeling, and when I checked on Amazon I was right. The Case of the Black Tulips, the first book in the Caster & Fleet series, will be one year old on 19 June. I told my husband and he said 'Is that all?' And I …

Caster & Fleet: not goodbye, but au revoir

This morning I wrote a chapter. A last chapter. Not of a book (well OK yes, it was of a book), but a series. And given the title of this post, you can probably guess which one. Oh gosh, it was hard. Starting it was bad enough. How do you write a chapter to finish …
