July 2019

A slightly less productive month with a long weekend away—a much needed break!—but a total of five novels and one novella edited (420,000 words) and a very busy August ahead of me.

July began with a Young Adult fantasy novel—details to follow nearer publication, followed by the third in the revenge thriller series by Sharon M Thompson, Ruthless.

Michelle Vernal’s final novel in the lovely O’Mara’s series, Rosi’s Regrets was a very different change of pace, before a cleverly written novel by Louise Broderick—again, details when available.

The first in the new Eva and Dan private investigator series by Solomon Carter came in at a hefty 120,000 words and was another fast-paced page-turner and a great start to what promises to be another exciting series, and the month ended with a sci-fi, fantasy novella, the first instalment in a new series by Saffron Bryant, on which I’ll be working throughout August and September.

Once again, I was able to work in the garden for some of the time—out of the question today as it’s pouring with rain—and the editing work was interspersed with walks with my lovely guest dogs, the slightly crazy Molly and Dexter in the early part of July, and last week, Jett, a beautiful and very affectionate black Labrador.
