Unblock my life

rabbit passing out from tiredness

Waaaaaauuuuuuugggggghhhh!

For the last two weeks, I’ve been preparing for my upcoming blog tour, pulling together thoughts, notes, journal entries, playlists and my worldbuilding inspo from the Chasing Sisyphus creative process.

It’s been an epic flurry of writing, admin and diving back into details I didn’t expect to have to think about again. I remembered my fears about writing that first fight scene, all the insecurities around the motel scene, and the first time I felt sad about doing something other than working on this story. That’s how I know my fictional world has become believable, by the way — the sense of actually wanting to be there.

Well, I’ve just sent off all of this material and can’t wait for you to read it. I’m going through Writer Marketing Services, run by veteran erotica/romance author Lucy Felthouse, and am just thrilled by the help and guidance she’s given me for my first big promo adventure.

What I’m really excited about, though, is getting back to normal life. I didn’t realise how much work I’d be doing for this. I wanted every guest post to be unique and offer some interesting insight into the book or the world. Cue regret about asking for a 10-day tour instead of an easier 5-day one 😬

Today, I’m rewarding myself with a delicious lunch (leftover pasta and chilli con carne), a guilt-free computer game session (Divinity 2!), and some quality time with family (my mother is making dinner).

The tour starts 4th December at Lily Harlem’s blog. More details to come.

 

The Induction of Satine — out now

What’s got two thumbs and was so busy this week, she missed her own book release?

👍😬👍
Me.

The Induction of Satine is now available on Amazon and other big ebook retailers. I’m rather excited about this one. All the feedback I’ve had on it so far — from beta readers, dotters, tweeps — has been very positive. It began as a personal writing challenge, and took on a life of its own once I got to know the characters.

I hope you like it. I’ve been asked to turn it into a series, which I’m genuinely considering, but don’t want to force it. The little world of Bellerophon ticks over in my mind — as does my fascination with Warden Jet.
