My Four Seasons box set is currently on sale for 99 cents, and I was thrilled to see the orange Best Seller tag appear on Amazon to show that it had reached #1 on the Holiday Romance charts! It was also #1 on iBooks Australia with its very own banner, which was super cool.
I haven’t posted on this blog for a while, but I’m still here, and still writing. After releasing As Deep as the Ocean in January, my personal life had a few twists and turns as my husband came to the end of his teaching career and finally retired on medical grounds in February.
It’s been a tough few years with the passing of both my mother- and father-in-law, with my husband’s illness, with my son graduating from high school, and with him flying the nest (albeit temporarily) and travelling around the world on his own.
But gradually, things are starting to settle down. I’m getting used to writing full time, and after 5 years of hard work, it’s nice to be able to take my foot off the pedal a bit and write what I enjoy, while still having time to go out for lunch with the Silver Fox, and to read and do some more in the kitchen.
With my mind on other things, I left Blue Penguin Bay for a bit and wrote a series of shorter novels (the Like a Boss series). The last of those will be released this weekend, and they did the trick, being thoroughly enjoyable to write, and reminding me how much I love romance. I’ve now returned to Blue Penguin Bay, and I’m writing book 2 (As Beautiful as the Bay). The planned release date for this is July 29.
So it’s onward and upward from here! All being well, I hope to publish 5 books between now and Christmas :-) Stay tuned to find out what they are!
