As we are now on the third month of 2016, it's time I wrote another blog. Read on to find out more.

About Time for another Blog

This last year was another exciting one for me. My fifth book was published in June. it was the sequel to EVIL WOMAN, entitled EVIL WOMAN...takes Revenge. It was a book I never expected to write, as there should have been only one novel, but the feedback from my readers was they wanted a sequel.

The sequel was much harder to write than the first book, as I didn't want it to be a copy of the other one, and so i had to view Sadie in a different way. I have so enjoyed exploring her character, the escapism writing gives me is wonderful, it's like being in a play, once i have decided how my characters are going to behave, that shapes the story.

In June I had a book launch from my home, I couldn't believe the support i got, and the amount of people that came. Our house was bursting at the seams, and it was such a lovely friendly atmosphere, and I would thoroughly recommend a home book launch to any author trying to promote their new publication.

What came next?

The rest of 2015 was spent at Craft fairs and signings, promoting not just my new book, but all of them. I met some great crafters, all so talented in their work, and lovely people as well, we are like one big happy family.

I also did a talk about Inspiration, and how I managed to get published last year, which was quite a challenge for me, as i am naturally shy. Addressing a hall full of women is the ultimate way of conquering my fears, and I did enjoy it, and was received with much warmth.

In May of 2015 I was invited to do an interview on radio Suffolk, whilst we were staying there. It was the same theme, my interviewer put me right at ease, and it ended up being an enjoyable experience.

Wikinut Changed

During the latter part of 2015, Wikinut announced that no longer would we be paid for our work. This was because of scams and forgery, writers' work had been stolen and used elsewhere, but without financial gain at the end of it, the scammers lost interest, and the site regained its honest reputation.

As far as i am concerned, it made no difference to me.. Earning maybe two pounds every three months was not a great loss, and the reason I use Wikinut is not for financial gain, it is a platform for my work, and just as important, it is a place where i have many friends, and we all support one another through our writing. So when time permits, I shall carry on with my blogs and my stories.

My plans for 2016

During my time off from signings in January and February, I wrote another novel, different again from all my other work. The story starts in 1959, when life was so different to nowadays, and the story finishes in 2016.

The main character becomes pregnant, and then discovers her boyfriend has been called up for National Service. Of course she is sent away to have her baby because of the disgrace, but unlike other young women at that time, she decides to keep her baby, and she struggles to become an independent woman, with a lot more pit falls along the way.

At this moment in time it is being read, and I have no idea whether it will be published, but even if it's rejected, I shall carry on striving for my dream, to try and become a well known author

I already have four ladies club talks booked for the next three months, and in July I have been invited to audition to go on the list for WI talks. If I can pass this audition it will open a lot more doors for me, but I will not know until September, as we are not told on the day..

I wish anyone who is working like me to become known, all the very best, don't give up, just follow your dream, because we all get only one life.. Right now mine is very exciting, and am crossing my fingers for good luck, both with my new book, and with my audition.

My thanks to Wikipedia for some images, and some are my own.
Also my thanks to radio Suffolk and Youtube for the video

Carol, I would like to say congratulations. I think you have just given me a push in the right direction. I'm working on my first book and it's almost complete. I've been writing for most of my life and having my work published but a book I think will be amazing. I wish you the very best today and always.
