Stay tuned: will announce release once the ebook goes live!
It rarely happens that I can’t sleep, but tonight is one of those nights. Sydney has been having really hot weather recently, and after a two day reprieve from the unrelenting heat, we are about to be slammed with 3+ days with above 45 degree heat. The fan is twirling away just at the foot of the bed, the window is cracked wide open and I can even hear the chirps of crickets outside. My feet are boiling and and the air the fan is blowing off me is already bouncing of with radiated heat. Sigh. Summer. I’ve have a love hate relationship with it. I love the long days, and the cool breezes we get some evenings, but that’s about it.
Tonight it’s not even the heat that’s left me sleepless. It’s an uncomfortable feeling in my stomach. Perhaps a bit to do with late night dinner, but I think it may have something more to do with a anxiety and anticipation. I’ve been operating on all cylinders for the last month or more what with new job, new living space, new commute, while still trying to keep some of my old routine going so I feel some sort of a balance in life.
I am becoming obsessed with what is going on around me right now. And it doesn’t help that I have the albeit self-imposed deadline to reach for my book, ‘Charming and Stewart’ releasing this Valentine’s Day. I worked on the book, combing through some of the last chapters for about 5hours after I came back from work. I now have heart burn from the stress of it (lol). I still have two chapters to run over once more before I lock it and start formatting prior to release. Yikes. I’m pushing it with only 5 days to go. Not to mention, there are minor alterations to be made on the cover page too.
I’m not used to dealing with anxiety and insomnia like this. How do you deal with it, those that suffer insomnia? The weird ache in the chest isn’t going away. Perhaps I’ve actually bitten off more than I could chew, what with school work also looming over my head. It won’t do if I go into lessons without planning my material either. On top of it all, I feel guilty that I haven’t been working on new material.
Here I go, well past midnight, wide awake and listening to the night.
People judge a book by its cover and it takes just as much thought to come up with something suitable and alluring.
It’s so wonderful when these things happen the way we imagine and come together easily. I’m loving it! (But I’m biased of course)
Hey hey hey,
Been a while I guess. Pardon my sporadic-ness if you will. I’m in the middle of spending time with my two gorgeous nieces, planning my first semester of content to teach a nervous bunch of teens, and trying to upkeep the blog and keep you in the loop with the next release. Suffice to say I’m feeling the time pressure to deliver by the nominated date of Valentines day, which in fact, as I type this now, is only mere 14 days away! (C*ap)
I have a few chapters to spruce up in the meantime. Yikes.
I’m not sure I’ve already told you guys, that you will find some chapters on here to read prior to grabbing a copy of the book at release, but I thought I’ll remind you once more and share the new blurb with you in the hopes that it will peak your interest (obviously).
BLURB is the hardest thing to write by the way, in case no one has ever told you. It’s the worst. Its epic failure at every keystroke. Like a test you just can’t pass no matter how many time you give it a go. That’s what I’m struggling with at the moment. Bad.
Here is the latest version, below.
Charming Mr Stewart (short blurb)
When Elle packed her bags and left home with her child in tow, she was determined to live life with memories of her late husband alone. As the once prominent wedding photographer re-kindles her business, it’s partially to keep herself far too busy for stupid little thing like love. By chance, when she meets a potentially special client it’s with sweaty palms and skipping beats that may have nothing to with a broken AC and above 30°C heat.
Taking on Mr Stewart as a client may not be strictly business, but will Elle battle all odds, a snobbish matriarch, and a woman hell bent on letting her know that Dean is off-limits unscathed? After all, falling in love with a client is not an option despite Dean’s attempt at every turn to steal what’s left of her healing heart.
