New Books



Any writer will tell you that it's not good to talk about new work in its early stages. Indeed, once upon a time, I talked so much about a new book that I talked it into oblivion! I had all the research, the notes, the ideas, the theme, the plot, the characters etc and I blathered on and on about it to everyone who would listen until after about two years I realised it wasn't being written. However, I can cheat a bit and show you pics from the settings of my two new works. The first pic belongs to the young adult book (which will be the first of a new series) and the second pic belongs to the adult book. They are both coming along so beautifully I could burst with happiness. I keep thinking one will supercede the other, but no, scenes and ideas keep arriving for both, so until that stops I will keep writing both. (Have never done this before. It's really quite thrilling.) Hmm, it looks as if they are similar but they are not. One is set in ancient Ireland and the other is set in the present day. All right, that's enough. Not another word. But, really, I am dying to talk about them. Will go write instead.

omigod, that is so cool. THERE IS LIGHT COMING FROM INSIDE THE MOUND OF THE HOSTAGES!!!!!!!! I thought it was all chained up and stuff, and look at the lighting from the clouds, utterly gorgeous in my opinion.

Congratulations on the new story and what a great post. I think you're right. Maybe too much talk quells the urge to put a story on paper. I've basically quit talking about it to the people that live with, I'm sure they are much happier that way anyway! LOL. So glad that we'll get more good stories from you hopefully soon!

Oh wow! The pictures are absolutely beautiful! It really makes you want to find out what they mean and how things take place there! I can't wait to read these amazing books. Isn't it wonderful how your mind can actually work with you?! I hope more thoughts keep coming. :)
