It’s been ages since my last post, but there’s a good reason. Last October I was approached about writing an Allegra Fairweather novella. I leaped at the opportunity to be included in an anthology to mark the second anniversary of Carina Press in June 2012.
I figured I had plenty of time to write the novella, but life threw me some curved balls. First I received some major edits for a novel, which chewed up four weeks of the time I had to write the novella. Then there was Christmas. Afterwards, it was head down tail up until the novella was complete. I’d barely handed in the first round of edits, when I received the second round of edits for both the novella and the novel. No problem…until I hurt my back and was confined to bed for three days. Yikes! Thank heavens for osteopaths. The second round of edits for both works were handed in on time. Phew!
And that, my friends, is a full and true account of why I haven’t blogged in -ahem – a long time.
Soon I’ll be able to give more details about release dates and titles for both the novel and the novella. It’ll be totally thrilling to have two Allegra Fairweather stories released in 2012.
