Although I don’t (think) I have as many ongoing projects as Miss Costa, things have certainly been pulling my attention away from the blog. The current project taking up the majority of my time is, of course, the Harlequin books. The first of which is undergoing a final spit polish before submission.
Today, however, has been a rare day. Today, I’m experiencing a lull in workload and decided to devote my time here while I still have some. Come 1st July, I will be participating in…stressing through my first Camp NaNoWriMo (completing Harlequin book two), but for now I’m going to enjoy some of your posts.
The observant amongst you will notice the nifty new look to the blog (what can I say? I love green). I’m trying it on for size and would love to hear your thoughts. I’m also on the lookout for someone to design a new header banner so if anyone knows an interested party, please let me know.
I love receiving comments from you all, they really do make my day. It means a lot to me that you all take the time to read and comment on my posts and I feel that I’m not giving them the attention they deserve. With that in mind, I am making a promise: all comments received will be responded to within 48 hours (spam comments excluded. Seriously, where is all this spam coming from?!). You’ve taken the time to write me, I need to make the time to write you back.
You’re all well aware that a lot of my short fiction is the result of writing prompts and What-ifs. I love reading your prompts and I’ve even started writing my own. Every week, I will share a writing prompt for your enjoyment. There’s no competition, no rules, and no obligation to use it. It’ll be there if you want it.
The monthly recap of your posts will be returning at the end of the month along with my monthly pick of up-and-coming UK literary festivals.
This probably should have been at the beginning of the post but I’ve always been taught that those things left until the end are the ones that stick with us. Over the last few months, I have received a number of blog award nominations from Naomi Harvey, Kate Loveton, Noelle Granger and Melissa Barker-Simpson. I am so grateful to all of you for your nominations and I want to offer my deepest apologies for not writing my acceptance posts; they will be coming in the very near future. For now, thank you all again for your nominations.
