Sleeping With Your Best Friend

So the editing and proof reading has finally been done on my first novella. I thought I'd never get there!

The book cover has been ready for ages but it's been hard to find the right editor for this sexy, rom com, but I can finally say - it's finished.

The next stage of the operation is to find readers and reviewers. And that's where you come in. I can send a copy to you in Mobi format. If you are a book blogger, all the better, but anyone who wants to give a new writer a go is very welcome to receive a review copy.

Choosing who to publish with comes next. Smashwords and Amazon spring to mind but I have a publication date lined up: Tuesday 30th June 2015!

Watch This Space!

Nightmares in Editing!

Editing has got to be one of the most difficult things about writing. Some would tell you that real writing is editing and in a lot of respects I'd agree.

English: Hands collaborating in co-writing or ...But there's nothing like the sweet abandon of having an idea, switching on the laptop and just typing away like your life depended on it.

Of course, half an hour of doing that and you may well have written something that is a real nightmare. Reading back you might wonder what on earth you were talking about. Did you ever learn to spell? - I mean really spell? And what about that little thing called punctuation? It does exist still - doesn't it?

It is now time to enter the editing zone.

My problem is, I've come so close to saying I've completed my first novella when every time I look at it I find another bloody typo. So it's time to whip out the red pen!

This week I am on target to finish, and I mean really finish, Sleeping With Your Best Friend. And while I can't wait to press publish I'm thinking seriously about sending it out to book bloggers and organising a blog tour!

So before I can get to fancy talks of blog tours and reviews - I have to make sure I've dotted all the i's and crossed all the t's! Then I'm further along the way to publication.

Any book bloggers up for a sexy, funny romantic comedy novella, drop me a line and I'll send you a copy!
