Writing and Research

News and Updates

'Times Hearts' is my next book. It is a compliation of short stories of romance and relationships, both contemporary and historical. The book is coming along nicely. Still lots to be done. I am not sure about making a trailer for this book, as I have done so with my other books. 'Times Hearts' will be published on the 5th of June this year.

I have lots of research to undertake for an historical romance novel to be published sometime in 2014 or  possibly early 2015. I do have a title for the book already but will not make it available until I have a cover designed and a good amount of the novel written. This will be my biggest novel and challenge to date. I am looking at possibly 80,000 words or more.

I will also be re editing 'The Seasons May Drift' as I am not really happy with it overall. Just needs some adjustments, tweaks, etc, I hope to have this completed sometime in the summer.

'Scenes from a Journey' writing will recommence about August with publication in September or October.

The audio version of  my first published book 'The Promise' will be recorded sometime during the summer/early autumn. Publication to be determined.
