Hello my lovelies! Sorry I have been so quiet lately, but I have been hard at work on the next book/s. Or, um, at least, I should be writing …. I have been a bit distracted because as of a week ago we are moving house!
My husband has been offered a job in a different part of the country so we are frantically looking for a house to rent somewhere in Sussex/ Kent. You know, if life hadn’t been busy enough, right?! But while it’s super sad to leave the friends we have made over the last year and a bit, I’m trying hard to focus on it being an adventure too. Sussex and Kent is pretty spectacular but in high demand so finding a house is a bit tricky … wish us luck!
Here are some rather fabulous pics of the county we’re moving to … of course we may not end up in one of these pretty villages which seems to require the deposit of a pair of lungs and a kidney, so I’m probably going to end up somewhere a little less picturesque … but a girl can dream, right?
Aside from moving though, I really wanted to check in with you guys most of all because of the incredible messages I’ve been receiving lately – from emails to Twitter DMs and messages on Goodreads (how incredible all these ways we have of getting in touch nowadays, right?) you all have been so kind!
Thank you SO much for this guys, it means the world. I’ve had a few readers tell me that they have read all four of my books over the past few weeks, and I cannot tell you how honoured I feel, it’s surreal. As a reader I used to do this myself but never imagined people would do it with my books so I can’t tell you how incredible it is to hear that some of you have done that! Thank you and for those who read them one at a time I love you just as much, grin.
The two books I’m working on for this year are coming along slowly but surely. The first one will be out in June, and is set on a small Spanish island and involves a secret that goes back to the years of the Inquisition … and the other, which will be out in October if all goes well, is set in Paris in a bookshop in the 60s. Writing two at once was never the plan (I bumbled deadlines) but I can honestly say that when I’m not panicking I’m having a really good time, grin.
How’s your January going? Is it just me or did it feel like this month had about 98 days in it and all of them with dust in the coffers since Christmas?
