Monthly Round-up: March 2016

(Cross-posted on the WriteClub blog)

I’m a week late posting the round-up for March. But life keeps getting away from me, and I was also in the midst of confirming some news I wanted to report on.

COMING SOON

Edits for SUFFER THE CHILDREN are more or less done, and we’re on track for a late spring release. I’m hoping to be able to confirm a release date soon. I’m expecting late May.

And now on to the Big News. I’ve just signed the contract for the third Shara Summers novel, SPOTLIGHT ON DEATH, and am pleased to be able to say that this novel has moved from the WIP section to ‘coming soon’. Although ‘coming soon’ is a bit of a relative term. Publication is estimated at Summer/Autumn 2017. So about 18 months away. I am looking forward to working with my editor at MuseItUp on this one. I have a feeling there’ll be lots of edits on this one, but between the two of us I am confident we can get it into shape.

PUBLICITY

I appeared on Eric Price‘s blog on 7 March as part of a blog swap sharing writing tips. I was talking about what I learned during the process of writing my first published novel.

WORK IN PROGRESS

I am now working in earnest on the new horror novel, which still doesn’t have a title. I’m referring to it as the ‘urban explorers novel’ because this is who it features as main characters.

There’s plenty to keep me busy here for a while. Catch you at the end of April!

    Ooh where can we read a blurb for SUFFER THE CHILDREN and SPOTLIGHT ON DEATH? I can never get enough horror.

      Oops I should have read your guest blog first. Now I know what STC is about and it sounds just my kind of thing.

        Thanks for commenting Anna! And for reminding me that I should put STC at the top of the ‘horror novels’ list on my blog, with a big ‘Coming soon’ banner!
