My Goals for 2017!

goals-2017-small

New year, new ambitions. For 2017, I’ve come up with a whole new set of goals to hit to make this year my best one yet as a lesbian romance author. They include writing, travelling, reading more widely and living a positive life – and I plan on doing that starting from now. Want to delve into my goals and see the targets I’ve set for myself?

Round-Up Of 2016 Goals: How Did I Do?

2016-2017-jump

Back in January 2016, I set out my goals for the year – the first time I’d ever done so in public. You can read the post here. So how did I do? Seeing as I didn’t actually check my goals after March (for shame!), actually not too badly. 2016 was the year I ramped up my production of books, so come with me as I look back on my goals for 2016 and see what happened along the way…

2015: Ten Things I Learned

Brighton Pride 2015
Me hosting the Brighton Pride Literature tent.

Farewell then, 2015. You’ve been immense. If I had to describe you in three words, I’d say challenging, rewarding and fattening (the life of a writer doesn’t involve a whole lot of moving). But I’ve learned so much, sold a stack of lesbian romance books and I plan to build and grow on that success in the coming year. 2015 was the year I started to take writing seriously. In doing so, I guaranteed that 2015 was without a doubt my busiest year yet. And being busy means you learn stuff – stuff like this…

LFest 2015: Indie Author Panel

This year’s LFest at Uttoxeter Racecourse had it all – sunshine, women, books & song. Really, what more is there in life? By day, I soaked up some rays, got cultured in the Arts Tent and ate some of the largest ice creams ever imagined. By night I whooped to the likes of Stooshe & Lucy Spraggan, drank lager out of plastic cups and wore a cowboy hat with some style. Nearly.

Summer Readings!

LFest-blog

I’m now well into my summer stride – the light and fluffy duvet’s on, the BBQ has been used at least once and I’ve even sat in my garden to have breakfast. It’s like I live in LA or summat. You know what else summer’s about? Drinking beer in fields and getting all dreamy at festivals, that’s what! Over the next two weeks, I’ll be appearing at a couple of venues, so if you’re in the UK and coming along to either LFest or Brighton Pride, do stop by and say hi!

Thumbs Up For This London Love!

It’s just over two weeks since I launched my third book, and I couldn’t be happier with the response so far. People seem to be connecting with the book and the characters which is great – I was sad to say goodbye to them, but I’m happy that readers now get to say hello again! A lot of people have asked me if writing and launching books gets easier with every one you do, and to that I’d say a resounding no. Writing a book is hard, editing a book is hard, and launching a book takes courage – because every time you put a book out there, you offer up a little piece of yourself to the world and you’re never quite sure if the world’s going to like it…
