Life is a Mess

Yes, alright, I’ve been missing.

Things have really got on top of me. I’ve taken on too much, too soon.

Having just completed editing Beyond all Doubt, I jumped straight into writing promos and media blurb for Whisper of Death. Although the latter isn’t due for publication until June 2017, I had been encouraged to at least have its cover ready so I can cross-promote each other.

Compounding the demanding hours of those projects came the release of my Romance Cards, (available here) only to be quickly followed by preparation of Valentine’s Day cards for advance marketing.  

And then to top all that, I’ve had to prepare for the huge upheaval to a new office.   

Now safely back in my ‘writing zone’ I can concentrate on what inspires me and that’s completing a few pages per hour of editing. I’m also suffering serious guilt pangs over falling behind on my competition writing. Not that I’ve ever won a competition. Either judges don’t understand my ‘out there’ style, or perhaps my writing is just plain crap! The public determine our worth, not ourselves. We only determine the size of our ego. Now that mine is re-inflated, I’ll choose this moment as my exit.

Also dabbling in poetry, Paige produces emotive verse from romance through to environmental issues. Writing is her lifeblood, but as experienced by many writers, there’s a shortfall of financial nutrients feeding the blood.
