Trials and Tribulations

Aaaargh! This last week has been filled with highs and lows. The biggest low included falling down a set of concrete steps, which led to the high of having time in bed to work on book 2 and also getting the new website live. I gotta say though, this is not a recommended way to get a holiday from housework and all things work-like. The swelling, and shades and colours that currently grace my knee mean that it will go with anything, all you have to do is be able to walk to these events. Alas, in my case it has not been the way of things. lol!

And the website? Well it is live and online. You can visit it at - please do as I love feedback.

In the course of my writing in the last few days, I have been finding out a lot about Low Self Esteem and have found it quite interesting to learn causes and ways of treatment. Some say it is considered an illness, others say it isn't but one thing is certain. There are more sufferers out there with this condition than I ever considered. If you think you need help, there are many organisations out there to offer support. Try Beyond Blue or if you are under 25 there is Youth Beyond Blue if you feel you cannot talk to your General Practitioner.

Book 2 has also now broken the 25K word barrier - still less than halfway but getting exciting now. I would add a short snippet but it might be better to keep it under wraps right now. But I can tell you, this heroine is soooo different to Mellissa the heroine in book 1. I am still discovering things about Jemma I never expected. I am also waiting to hear more about her background...she is only telling me things in dribs and drabs!

Okay, so today I have to work to make up for time lost last week, thankfully I can now at least walk (albeit slowly) into my office and start work.

So I am going to leave you with a quick quote:

If you think you can, you can. And if you think you can't, you're right. Mary Kay Ash - I am of the mindset "I can".

Happy reading!
