It has been some time since I updated my blog – apologies for that. Grief got in the way but I am pleased to report that I have some of my mo-jo back and am focusing once more on writing.
When my brother Ferg died, in Feb 2016, I lost interest in creative fiction but did take up the pen to write a narrative memoir, ‘Overload’. This was a whole new approach in a different genre and writing style. This new book, let’s just say, is an unusual one and may not be exactly a commercial fit. It is experimental. I hope it will find its way to the right publishing house. With that goal in mind, I have submitted to some agents and am playing that awful waiting game….(watch this space)
In the mean time, the good news is that I have been given the go ahead by the community at Kylemore Abbey for book 2 (‘K-Girls Plus One’) in my teen series, ‘K-Girls’ (I like to submit my drafts to the Community for review) and so once the copy-editing/proof reading is completed I will self-publish digitally in March/April.
In the mean time I thought I should give an update on a previous blog as I am delighted to report that I can now share proof that my the first in the series, ‘K-Girls’, did indeed reach its unusual destination.
How many authors can claim that their own book made it to the South Pole!
From here everything is looking up (get it?)
