March is here!

🌸 March is here!! That means it’s officially spring, right? πŸ˜…

🌸 Sure, we’re still buried in snow here in northern Sweden, but at least the outdoor temperature is a little more manageable 🀣 That’s enough for me 😁

🌸 So, what about progress on my books? Well, lately it’s been slow but steady wins the race πŸ™ˆ Almost proofread book 4, and I’m nearly 2/3 through writing book 5 (55k words). Just gotta keep writing a bit each day and I’ll get there… eventually πŸ˜‚

Update cake!

❄️ Righty then, update time!! πŸ₯³

❄️ First, I’ll just go ahead an explain that photo by saying it was my birthday yesterday and my dear hubby got me this cake to commemorate our time as WoW players, way back when πŸŽ‚πŸ˜…β€οΈ

❄️ Aaaand second: Book 4 is officially done, and only needs a final proofread before early readers can get their hands on a copy πŸ˜πŸ™ I’m excited to hear what they think!!

February flying by!

❄️ A whole week gone already!! February is flying by!! πŸ˜± But yeah, time for another update, I guess πŸ˜…❀️

❄️ I’ve been busy as always, and a big push has been made on book 5 of The Light of Darkness series πŸ˜ I’m about a 3rd in (30k words, or 100 pages) and the rest is roughly plotted out, so I’m finally making some progress! πŸ’ͺ But damn, it really does put a spanner in the works when a character goes “screw your plot” and does their own thing πŸ€£ Oh, the joys of being a pantser, I suppose πŸ˜‚

❄️ But it’s really nice to see that wordcount go up, so I’m hoping to finish this book within my own set deadline πŸ˜ Fingers crossed πŸ€ž

Still on offer!

Hello there!

❄️ Hello there! πŸ‘‹

❄️ Apparently, it’s good to show your face once in a while, so here I am… sitting in my computer chair, editing a book one-handed πŸ˜‚ Yes, this is as real as it comes. Writing with kids can be a struggle, to say the least, but it’s all good fun β€οΈ

❄️ And as to my progress… Well, I’ve not posted a lot about it lately, but that doesn’t mean it’s ground to a halt! It’s actually been rather good, all things considered. The biggest happening lately is that book 4 of The Light of Darkness is nearing completion and I’m hoping to send it out to early readers soon πŸ˜

❄️ So excited!! πŸ˜πŸ™
