Happy new week everyone. I’ve been feeling a bit low over the last week, trying to meet publishing deadlines and fulfil other commitments. There is a lot of Christmas cheer around, which is wonderful, with fairy lights adorning houses and Christmas carols playing on the radio, but our boiler is broken so our toes are a bit frosty right now. I think i’m missing working with my mum, who I haven’t hugged since March. Even though I work on my own a lot of the time, i’m feeling – as i’m sure is everyone else in the world – the loss of chats over a table with friends. This photo is from two years ago and is Christmas lunch with the lovely Chelmsford Romantic Novelists’ Association  members.

There is light at the end of the tunnel, with news of vaccines and possibilities that we may be able to be together again soon, so i’m trying to shake off the procrastination and find my usual enthusiasm. Writing these words onto paper helps me to focus on what I need to achieve this week. There are lots of exciting things on the horizon, with at least three new fiction books out next year, The little ice cream shop by the sea (out March 2021), Invisible Woman (out July 2021) and the third title will be revealed in the run up to launch day in May.

This week i’m taking part in the Chick Lit blog hop on Wednesday 9th Dec. I have some incredible prizes to give away via my Facebook page, including book themed socks, a beautiful notebook, a copy of bestselling book ‘Seven kinds of people you find in bookshops’ a copy of my own bestselling book, Finding Gina and a simply stunning set of 36 inspirational quote magnetic bookmarks. I’m also being interviewed for a Mumpreneur summit, details of which i’ll post later in the week or early next week.

I really appreciate your support of my writing and blog posts and hope you are all staying safe, well and that you’re managing to avoid procrastination – unlike me today!

If you could wish for one gift under the Christmas tree this year, what would it be?

  1. Fantastic about the new books on the horizon, Lizzie! We live in very strange times and we can hope that light at the end of the tunnel is really a light! Hang in there! Hugs!

  2. Wow! Am amazed at your energy Lizzie. Can empathise with the stop-go way writing sometimes works. I too scare myself sometimes when I have a good day and the work count is in four figures. Jo xx

    • I don’t feel that energetic! Lol. A four figure word count is an amazing achievement. I aim for that every day, but it doesn’t always happen.

  3. Brilliant news about the books! I know what you mean about not being able to hug family members – but there is light at the end of the tunnel. 2021 will be a good year.
