{January 4, 2014}   New Year

So it’s a new year and so there is much to be done!

However before I descend into what I have to complete in the next 12 months I thought it would be a good idea to look back on this year and see what has happened, what was good, what was bad, what worked and what didn’t.

I was finally diagnosed after struggling with long term illness, as having fibromyalgia and diverticulitis. Neither are particularly pleasant to suffer with but as a combined force, it is wonderful fun. This has not stopped me from moving forward though.

I was encouraged to start working on some scripts for the first time in several years and really enjoyed writing them – watch this space to find out what happens with them.

I had the covers for the Chronicles of Celadmore revamped and now they are looking superb (even if I do say so myself) I am incredibly happy with them and those that are going to be coming next.

Books were given away left, right and centre in competitions through Momma Says Read (if you haven’t discovered this amazing site and woman – go look now!)

I received lots of helpful feedback on novels that are in the works and other projects.

I got the opportunity to work with a fabulously talented composer who has brought so many of my ideas to life through music.

I took the total of my books in the market to eight and had the honour of publishing someone else’s work that has been selling well A Miracle of Grace

Plans for revamping the covers of the Nicolette Mace series are now well underway and should be out very soon.

I had a crazy October where I wrote the whole of Rising Empire: Part 1 in a month and then went on to do the NaNoWriMo challenge in November and cleared 70,000 words on a combination of projects.

I did some recordings of soundbytes for forthcoming videos linked to my books that are currently found on and also one of the rough videos that is on Youtube…

The Raven Siren wiki was finally launched and can be found at…

And I got to review some amazing books!

But that was all last year.

This year is looking even more jam packed with scripts going out to unnamed people and the following publishing dates for people and their diaries!

Nicolette Mace: the Raven Siren – Beginnings will be out on February 14th 2014

Rising Empire: Part 2 (Chronicles of Celadmore) will be out on March 23rd 2014
