So, I wrote this book…
I did. I mean it. Well, actually, I wrote it, like five years ago when I was a bored housewife in the Caribbean. Y’know, like all Fleming-esque, sitting on the verandah with my laptop (I wanted to inherit my grandma’s typewriter but it was not to be 😦 ) and a Bahama-mam… Nah, just kidding…
I was at the dining table with the air conditioning on while the children had afternoon naps. You know how hot it is in the Bahamas, right? Without air con I’d have done nothing for 2 years but sit on the beach.
And then…nothing. It sat gathering dust. Virtual dust on my laptop. Well, on a memory card inside my laptop. I had another baby. We moved back to the UK. Life got on top of me. Again. As has always been my excuse. As did a few more pounds. And…my 35+ year old dreams of being a writer were sat aging in the corner of my mind again.
Well, to be fair, I was making a little headway (by way of one step forward, twelve steps back, but still, headway…) with an acting career, of sorts.
And then, at the beginning of this month I suffered a personal trauma that pretty much made me burst in to tears every time I saw people, let alone had to talk to them.
The only thing that distracted me was reading a detective novel on my e-reader. And then I finished that one, and something drew me back in to getting back to my series again…so I did. And within 2 weeks I had it edited to within an inch of it’s life (Honestly, some parts were just crap, didn’t make sense or just didn’t fit) and made some sembelance of a contemporary romance novel, oh and with a hero I was totally in love with, so jealous of the heroine!
So, I finally bit the bullet, and forgoing the myriad of rejection letters from publishers I’d probably have to put up with, (there’s enough rejection in acting already) I signed up to Kindle Direct Publishing and have published it as an ebook and paperback and just telling the whole world (that I know personally) about it 🙂
So, go take a look, it’s a contemporary romance with a bit or action and adventure, and a bit of raunchiness. Well, if people will read 50 Shades..
