Learning Curves!

The first conclusive Beta reading of my new novel has been given the thumbs up by another author/reviewer. I am delighted about this. I am not just settling for just one Beta review but a few, just to make sure the novel is as it should be and get different perspectives on it.

So far my writing for me has been a learning curve, which I have found immensely enjoyable and very frustrating at the same time. My next book, which is still not titled and yet to be completed, is along with the last couple of books, the most enjoyable fun I have had writing! But given my last two books, caused me so much frustration, I have planned that I will take some short breaks from writing my next book and then go back to it, read it and complete chapters in increments. I will keep re reading my book as I am writing it. 

I know it has been a good while since my last book was published but I want to take my time with this one. I have other books in the pipeline, lots of work ahead!

In other news, I have decided to change where I will place 'The Romantic Poets/Writers Column' will be. Instead of here on my blog, I have already created a Facebook Group in which romantic poets and writers can get together and exchange ideas, share work and links to works and advisory and resource group for all. The group will be made public soon. Just working on charters and usual rule applications etc. Further info on this and links to the group will be posted here and on my author page on Facebook. It's all going to fantastic fun and looking forward to meeting you all in the new group!

For now it ia back to writing my next book. I like to write in the quiet of the morning, when everyone is asleep. I like the lull before dawn, best time to write

Keep your eyes peeled more news soon!
