Submissions In!

My submissions have been sent...pif paf poof and the send button has done its magic.
So that's one Nocturne Bites done and dusted.
And one non-fiction off to the lovely agency to consider.
Currently I'm holding off the crows of doubt and instead manically packing for our family trek to Glencoe. One of my favourite places, and here's why...

Awesome! Here's hoping the amazing scenery helps me dream up fresh story snippets!

About to Sub!

Hurrah - I am finally finished my Dark Novella and intend to sub it lickety split! Yey. I'm pinching myself that it's actually finished in time for my hols next week in Glencoe. The words can't and wait are regularly leaving my mouth!

And just to whet your appetite here's a pic of the heroine...tasty!

Purse Those Porridge Lips

Jess asked for pic proof that Esme can do Les Dawson. So here it is -
In writing news the Weddings novella has been approved and passed by the lovely editor. Yippee - I intend to sub my dark novella soon too, just doing last round of revs. Busy, busy, busy!

Don't faint - I'm back!

Soz it's been a long break, but I'm finally back.

Reasons for long absence include window fitters and carpentry stuff everywhere plus a looming deadline on my non-fiction book/guidebook. Good news is that both the windows and the book are finished. Oh I do love completion.

I'm still tinkering with the dark paranormal but will hope to sub it soon.

And then there's a new novel lurking - with bobbing characters already shoving their noses into my brain. I'm hoping to get teeth into that soon. I'm already burning 'ambient' Yankee candles to inspire me (it's a winter theme book about a coffee cafe girl so there's yummy scents in my burners to evoke the mood!)

Quick update on baby while I'm at it: standing a lot (then crying when she forgets how to sit back down); finally proper crawling instead of belly sliding everywhere; got her first pair of proper shoes this week (even got her photo taken in shop); also pursing lips in a very funny Les Dawson type manner when being fed (plays havoc with getting food between lips) and now engaging in lots of clapping and sitting doing boogie boogie on the carpet or having long rambling conversations that make absolutely no sense at all a la The Fast Show. It's all quite baffling.

But it's just LOVELY to witness too!

Anyway enuf of my nonsense - how are you?
