New Contract

I have signed a new contract with Whiskey Creek Press. This will be my twelfth book with them. If you are counting you will say "Hold on I make it ten" but I have two books coming out with them, so there is nothing the matter with my math!

The first is an historical romance called A Sprig of Broom. This was the first book I ever had published and the original publisher was Robert Hale Limited. I decided to dust it up and edit it again. It is set in my favourite medieval period, again just after King Richard the Third has been killed. Once more I look at Richard with fresh eyes and set out to prove that he was not the monster as shown by Shakespeare. Now it will come out as an e-book first and of course on Kindle. It might also go out in paperback which would be thrilling. I wish I could share with you the original cover, I thought it magical. Perhaps there will be someway I can do that...one day.

My second new book is a romantic suspense set in a fictional town in England and also in Cornwall. Here we have a woman trying to hide from an abusive man who has threatened revenge on her. It took some time to write this book, my head was not always in a good place. I don't know how, but suddenly I was inspired and I took off like a steam train. It's called The Longest Passion, it took a long time to find a title but when I did, well I think it is perfect but only you, the reader can judge.

It's great to be back in the saddle. I am now working on a modern romance. Life has endless possibilities, and I must be up for the challenge.

Bit congratulations! I am so happy for you. I am sure they areboth going to bring hours of pleasurable reading. I look forward to diving into both stories.

You inspire me, Margaret. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. I love to see that there's a way back to writing. I worried there might not be.

I hope you're celebrating your good news!

Hi Sarita, No haven;t celbrated yet, but will do I hope.

There is a way back, Sarita but it takes time. It will come to you trust me. It has taken me over a year to finish my latest book, I just could not get to it. You are where I was but there is hope. There has to be, Sarita and I know you will know that eventually. Blessings xxx

Prince Nyan, I could not trace your blog, the link you left did not work. However, I doubt a blog would turn into a book...but you never know in this game, and I could be wrong. If you want to write, then write. Have confidence in your ability.
