Summertime and the Living is Hot!

The heat has hit and the energy levels have plummeted. Combine that with being the one person in the household who is working…make that supposed to be working…while everyone else is on holidays, well, I’m lacking in commitment.

I’ve had a sensational two months. I spent that last 8 days of November and the first 14 days of December in the USA. Ten days in New York City, Baby! And 12 days in New Mexico and Texas; the urban jungle and then the wilderness. All of it was fabulous. In NYC, Boy Wonder, the son who loves a musical, saw 7 shows, Billy Joel in concert and jazz at the Lincoln Centre. Not bad! I saw half of that…

We got home a week before Christmas, a time filled with shopping and baking followed by family celebrations, New Year, and houseguests. I did print out the 183 pages of the novel am writing and read it to remind me of the story. I don’t think my mind was ready to cope with an analytical read and I just wanted to change every word. I set it aside and rationalised that a new website was necessary before the cover reveal for my next book.

The website is live! (Please take a peek, cos Boy Wonder did an amazing job with some help from an IT coder) The cover for Daughter of Mine* is revealed! Can I settle to work? NO!

Boy Wonder is waiting for university offers, which is VERY distracting and I am supposed to be going to the beach to camp for a couple of weeks. I am going to have to take my battery operated word processor and try and write some words each day. That is fine in theory but mostly I am missing the desire to work. I can’t seem to find it anywhere!  It happens every January. The heat zaps my energy. Half the country is on holidays and I willingly and easily distracted.

Anyone got any tips on how I can find my mojo cos I tell you, the deadline for the book isn’t scaring me enough yet and it really should be!

(Shh, but Daughter of Mine isn’t a medical romance per se BUT one of the protagonists is a female surgeon. It’s a 500 page novel about family, tangled secrets and lies. It’s being released on March 1st in Australia and NZ and can be preordered now.)

Valentine’s Day.Finger Hug on Valentine's day theme

It was great looking at everyone’s FB posts and twitter messages about what their valentines did for them. My true love gave me a gorgeous bunch of flowers and breakfast in bed.

New Book Covers

Two new covers landed in my inbox this week. Ask me Nicely is my Brazen that’s coming out on 3rd March. No, it’s not a medical but its set in a vet practice. There are animals inlcuding a foul-mouthed galah and an obese labrador with a tick. It is a little bit…saucy (dirty) but if you’re into that kind of thing….

In May I have a crazy/different/new/excitinAMN_500g/scary project coming to fruition. The book is called Limbo. It’s still me but with ghosts and a PI and I really love the cover!

Also I’m putting this cover up even though its a couple of months old now because it’s a medical and I just adore it. I think it’s one of my best medical covers yet!
