I've been neglecting this blog terribly for real-life reasons, mostly to do with my day job (i.e. stay-at-home mother of a toddler). Computing time has been precious, and while I can write on my Alphasmart and do forums and twitter on my phone, editing and Scrivener take priority on my computer.
So I thought it was beyond time to do a quick update. :)
Mermaids and Misadventures is written and in editing, and I'm really excited about sharing a book from the POV of Esther. She is so much fun to write. The sequel, Dragons and Deception (working title), is being outlined, although I've written a few scenes. It will be the penultimate novel length instalment, according to current plans.
Game dev wise, I am dying to get back to Stepsister, but I'm suffering the same computer access problems.
I've also outlined a historical love story in Adelaide, South Australia in 1928, about the relationship between a ambitious, wealthy white girl and a mission-raised young Aboriginal charwoman. Working title Lesley and Faith. I am still embroiled in research, so I will be ready to go when Scholars and Sorcery is complete. Much as I love Cornwall and writing books set in Cornwall, there's something special about writing a book set in the town in which I now live. I'm doing lots of cruising around town on buses picking out locations.
I also keep meaning to prepare the paperback copies of the books. Maybe when the whole series is out...
