Baby’s fledged

ImageWell, it’s out there – as of a few days ago Something in Common is sitting on a bookshop shelf near you, waiting to see what everyone thinks of it. Very scary time, always on tenterhooks until I get a feel of the reaction – and thankfully the comments from readers of review copies have been good so far. Will be keeping an eye on the bestseller list over the next few weeks…fingers crossed, everyone!

In other news, work is progressing nicely on my sequel to One Summer, which I’m calling Another Summer for the moment, but that may not stick. Have to say it took me a while to get my teeth into it – in my innocence, I imagined a sequel would be less work than a new one, as all the characters are there….not so. I realise now that the hard work is in finding something new and interesting to say about them! Hopefully I’ll pull it off.

Going on holidays today, heading to Lanzarote for a week of lying in the sun, if it’s there…someone on Twitter came home from there yesterday and weather reports were a little off-putting to say the least…bringing the laptop so it won’t be all rest and no work – need to keep the momentum going with the book so I’ll be putting in a few hours each day. Will try and time it so I’m writing when the clouds are out!

Pic is of one of my dwarf apple trees covered in blossom. Love this time of year, when even the gardens of mediocre gardeners (me) look smashing. Everything budding and greening up, perennials reappearing, shrubs growing steadily. The other day my little toddler nephew helped me to plant flower seeds – and when I say helped, I’m using BIG artistic licence – picture seeds being flung willy-nilly! So we’ll be keeping an eye on them over the next few weeks – hopefully about half of them landed roughly where they were supposed to! Of course they’re still in danger from my cat when she’s out and about and looking for a suitable spot to spend a penny…poor things, talk about odds being stacked against them…

Have a happy May, wherever you are. Hope the sun shines at least some of the time. Do let me know if you read Something in Common, I’m dying to hear what you think of it.

    I’m half way through Something in Common and it is absolutely brilliant. Have read all your
    books within the last year once I found you and have loved everyone of them. Can’t wait
    for the sequel to One Summer. Please let me know when it is likely to be released.
    Please keep writing your stories are wonderful.

    • Thanks a million for letting me know, Eleanor – delighted you’re enjoying the books, it’s great to get the positive feedback when I’m struggling with the next plot twist! One Summer sequel should be hitting the shelves next spring, sometime between Feb and May. Will be giving more accurate timings on the site as I get them myself, but first I have to write the darn book! Roisin xx
