Happy Halloween!

IMG_2122Also known as NaNoWriMo Eve!

I’ve not decided if I’m going to be doing NaNoWriMo this year – between work, family life and studying towards my degree, time to write is scarce at the moment.

That said, I’ve been reading my way through the fantastic Save the Cat! Writes a Novel by Jessica Brody, based on the books by Blake Snyder. Brilliant resource for every writer, no matter what your experience or choice of genre(s). I’m hoping it’ll help kick start my writing mojo as it seems to have disappeared under the pressure of everything else.

In release news, the whole of the Knights and Brides trilogy is now available to buy exclusively from Amazon, and 10th November brings the final novel in The Realm of Larnasia trilogy. War of the Realms concludes the series in a hopefully satisfactory way so fingers crossed its readers enjoy it.

That’s all from me for now… Happy writing to those of you taking part in NaNoWriMo – whether you’re a plotter or a pantser, I wish you every success in hitting your 50,000 words!

The Realm of Larnasia trilogy

Book two in the Realm of Larnasia trilogy, Larnasia’s Queen, is available now from all good online bookstores including Amazon, Kobo, iTunes and Barnes & Noble.

The third and final novel in the series, War of the Realms, is also available to pre-order now!

I hope you enjoy the series – please leave a review on Goodreads or your preferred book seller’s website if you do!

Busy, busy, busy…

The writing bug bit again and I’m busier than ever.

Currently working on plotting/planning four different stories to see which one grabs my full attention… They all seem to be vying for dominance at the moment so it’ll be interesting to see which is the victor.

I abandoned the story I was toying with because it wasn’t flowing right – it’s now reinvented itself into one of the above ideas so we’ll see if it works second time around.

I’ve also made a decision about the YA fantasy trilogy I’ve had written for the best part of a decade gathering dust on my laptop: I’m going to self-publish it!

As it’s different to everything I’m working on now, and was written so long ago, I’m doing a vigorous edit and rewrite/polish and then will release it a story at a time this year under a pen-name (GR Taylor for anyone interested.) I’ll list it on the website as and when it’s available, too.

And that’s where life has taken me since I last posted in mid-March! It’s a lot to do and there’s limited time to do it – in non-writing news, I’m starting a degree through my day job in June so not quite sure how everything’s going to fall into place but we’ll see what happens.

Happy writing!
