Waves Hi Raven here. Sips coffee anyone want one?

Refills pot and shares it around.

Are you sitting comfortably? Oh good well let me start. As ever I’m rambling on…

Yesterday was an all over the place sort of day for me. Hubby had toothache over the weekend so I got out the hard stare and told him to go and get to the dentist as it opened—or else.

He did but oh so reluctantly because of course rolls eyes it didn’t hurt on Monday…

Yes well, he had treatment. Quite a lot as far as I can tell. Dare I say no wine with dinner?

Then, it was cover and title reveal day… I was so excited, I spilled coffee danced around like a dervish and scared three tourists and our resident squirrels.

Then they sent me the blurb for The Lord’s Persuasion of Lady Lydia and said go forth and share it.

Then, (sorry lots of ‘then’ in this) I was lucky enough to get a couple of my eBooks into our county library services with a couple of paperbacks to follow.

Then I found out I’d still got a stash of chocolate and a piece of gluten free Daim cake.

Then I decided to write this, drink coffee and eat the Daim cake.

So just got to show you the cover and the blurb, hope you don’t mind… But well, it would be rude not to show you how much I’ve been distracted.

Blurb

Seducing the wallflower…

Over the years, Lydia Field has perfected the art of being a wallflower. It’s the only way to avoid the attention of unwanted suitors – and the perils of a convenient, loveless marriage! Instead, she dreams of the day she can leave London’s high society behind her, trading the glamorous balls and afternoon teas for a quiet life in the country.

But in an unguarded moment, she finds herself catching the eye of notorious rake ‘Handsome Harry’, Lord Birnham. Now that he’s glimpsed the wildness and fire that lurks beneath Lydia’s demure exterior, Lord Birnham will not rest until he has unleashed the full extent of her passion!

For if there’s one skill that Lord Birnham is known for, it’s the art of persuasion…

 

Oops bats eyelashes the Amazon link snuck in…

I have to say I’m so pleased with this cover. I was asked for some input and you know they’ve got in everything I asked for and more. It really encapsulates the story. In Love

Now I best get back to the revisions or it won’t be out in October.

Happy reading,

Writing Through The Insecurities

Hi there! It’s been WAY too long since I posted on this wonderful site. My sincere apologies.

writer_at_work_working_caution_sign_poster-ra6e68f24e0a64fe2bac7c08bae2fa138_sthp_8byvr_324Today I’d like to talk about writing through the insecurities. We’re human. Life happens. It gets in the way and not only blocks our creativity, but makes us mute as writers. Pushing through isn’t as easy as it sounds, as we all probably know.

I’ve been published for five and a half years now, and I can tell you I’ve had months where I’ve banged out two books, and months where I’ve been lucky to write half a page.

Health issues, money issues, friends in need, friends who betray you, work-related issues, computer issues, on and on and on. It’s called LIFE. But I also know if I want to succeed at this … if I want to make an actual living off this one day, I have to take it seriously. I have to make it a priority. I have to treat it like the business that it is, not like the hobby some people in my life think it is.

So how does one do that? How does one go about keeping writing in the forefront when everything around you is falling apart?

Well, the reality is that sometimes you cannot do it. Some days, it has to take a back seat. But the trick is to get back to it as soon as the initial crisis is taken care of. As soon as you can put your butt in the chair and type again, DO IT. Even if it’s only 200 words a day.

That’s 200 words a day more than you would have done had you ignored your laptop and pretended you weren’t a writer. 200 words a day times one month of steady writing equals 6,000 words, and that’s nothing to sneeze at.

spiral_clock_2_by_cat_machineAnother thing I do when life seems to be more complicated than I’m ready to handle is schedule my writing. I set aside blocks of time on days I know I can fit them in, around everything else that’s going on. That way it becomes one more task on the calendar that day instead of this gigantic THING hanging out there in space, staring at me and daring me to ignore it.

And you know what? Sometimes you simply have to give yourself permission to take a break for a while. There are circumstances where writing simply won’t fit into what you need to deal with, and that’s okay. As I said up there, we’re only HUMAN.

Until next time, Happy Writing!
