Time to knuckle down...

It's August 2nd and I'm woefully behind on book two in the Appleton Vale series. A November delivery is looking decidedly shaky right now so it's time to reshuffle the diary and dedicate some time to my writing. No interruptions. Nothing except me, the laptop and the ever faithful and loving Hector at my feet.

I'm not yet in a position to give up the day job.  Soon I hope, but right now I have an awful lot of work on my plate with deadline after deadline looming. Combine that with a horse that needs exercising and looking after, a dog that needs walking twice a day, and all the other bits and pieces that make up my life, it's no wonder I'm only a third of the way through the first draft. Gulp!

Next week is a writing week.  I know I keep saying that but this time it's true! I can't let my publisher down, or myself for that matter, so I have every intention of delivering the final manuscript on time for its pre Christmas launch. Wish me luck!
