It has been a very long time between blog posts…
After publishing both Fractured and Let Her Go in close succession, and working very hard on writing and promoting them for a couple of years, I took a step back from writing. There were lots of reasons why, but as my toddlers and babies were turning into preschoolers, I also went back to working more as a psychiatrist. Last year, I opened my own practice, and I started a Masters degree. I missed writing, but I needed to get back to my professional career, and perhaps I needed a break from writing to find my passion for it again.
While I have been ‘absent’, I did finish a draft of novel three. Both Let her Go and Fractured were published in Poland and Turkey, and I still popped up occasionally as a writer in various places. I also got back to reading without analysing the structure of the book, enjoying the story rather than seeing it as part of my job, and with that, my enthusiasm and desire to write has come back.
It’s been spurred along even more by the tireless work of my agent in Europe, Sharon Galant of Zeitgeist Media Group, who has now managed to secure a contract with Canelo, a UK based publisher, and I’m thrilled to say that Let Her Go will be available very soon as an ebook in my home country, the UK, as well as all other world English language territories (excluding Australia and New Zealand where it has always been available). You can read the press release here and I look forward to sharing the cover with you very soon!
Meanwhile I’m working away on Book 3 (which will have a better title soon!) for 2018!
