I've only just got into reading again after a few months of a slump. So far this summer I've enjoyed Eight Detectives by Alex Pavesi, Three Hours by Rosamund Lupton, and The Girls are All So Nice Here by Laurie Elizabeth Flynn. This last one isn't out until next year but I think people are going to love it. It's one of the perks of being an author - getting your hands on juicy books before they are released. Currently reading The Southern Book Club's Guide to Slaying Vampires - which has to be the best book title of the year. I couldn't resist it!(less)

I'm pretty disciplined with my writing so whether I'm in the mood or not, I'm at my desk each morning. Some days the words come slower than others, but they always come. Also, I'm under no illusions that all the words I'm writing will make the final cut so I don't feel the pressure to make it perfect.(less)

Happy September!
How are you? No, really. How ARE you? This last few months have been so difficult for so many. I hope you're doing okay.

This summer I've found it difficult to get into reading. I've failed to finish a number of books - no fault of the authors themselves - I've found it hard to settle on anything. But a couple of books which had me hooked to the very last page are Three Hours b Read more of this blog post »

Absolutely brilliant book and so timely. This is exactly what I needed to hear and I now have a note above my desk saying 'what if this could be easy?'

Clearly written and laid out with so much wisdom. In some ways it's nothing new, but it highlights

“Penny ordered drinks - a large latte with a shot of caramel syrup for Decca and a green tea for herself. Charlie thought what people drank told you as much about them as any number of psychological tests. Decca's coffee was decadent, comforting, and perhaps a little bit naughty, just like she was. Penny's tea was an acquired taste. It screamed out worthiness. Hard work but probably worth it in the end.”
Jo Jakeman, Safe House

“She ventured out of the village that morning for what her mum would have called life's little luxuries. A soft gray dressing gown, a matching towel, and bubble bath promising the healing properties of sea kelp. Charlie knew there wasn't a big enough bottle enough to heal her wounds, but she was willing to begin the process. Penderrion was getting to her if she thought that anything with "sea" in the title could be soothing instead of threatening.”
