Autumn update on what the heck I’ve been up to!

Hi everyone,

I don’t really know where to start with this blog to be honest. It’s been a long few months since I posted back in…May. Gah. Sorry for the radio silence!

I was quite ill over the summer months. Finally went back to work to my day job as a librarian at the end of July, and then found out my Mom’s cancer has come back. The very sad news is she only has about 6 months to live, so I’ve been spending time with her. We have lots of stuff planned. The only blessing so far is she seems fairly ‘well’. It’s particularly hard as she is my best friend.

As for writing, I haven’t had much of a chance to do that over the summer, however I can tell you in September I set up a regular writing schedule that I have been keeping up with.

it’s amazing to be writing again. It helps me process some of the my emotions, or just takes my mind off things. I’ve written 15,000 words in October so far, which is a big increase in my productivity!

What are you writing? I hear you cry!

Well, I have been working on a new series…

I can reveal the cover for the first book in my new trilogy, the Knights of Hell MC series:

Sinful is book one in Zeke and Grace’s story. I cannot wait for you to meet Zeke. He’s a badass, MC President and sex on legs! Poor Zeke and Grace do get some shit thrown their way though *evil grin*

Meet the inspiration behind Zeke, Mr. Tom Hardy *swoons* Raise your hands if you love Tom Hardy!

Sinful should be out Winter time, followed by Taken and Possession.

In other news, I’ve been reading soooo much lately. I’m tracking everything on Good Reads now (get me being all organized! haha)

If you want to know what I’m reading you can follow me on Good Reads https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/1661269.Scarlett_Sanderson. I also tend to hang out at some of the erotic romance groups on their, sharing my love (and fangirling) for the genre.

I just finished The Glue by K.Webster – wasn’t sure I was going to like it but I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. Other reading obsessions over the last few months include:

  • Redemption – the last book in the Vincent and Eve series by Jessica Reuben (OMG it was sooo awesome).
  • Stygian by Sherrilyn Kenyon – even though it’s book twenty-something, I still enjoyed it. Found it a bit too long though.
  • Wanting Mr Cane by Shanora Williams – again wasn’t sure I was going to like it as the main female character is only 18, but thoroughly enjoyed it. Have downloaded the next one!

On my TBR pile is Consumed by JR Ward, Blood Communion by Anne Rice (Lestat!) and tons of others.

I think that’s all the news I have to print right now 🙂 Look out for snippets of works in progress over the coming months and regular updates on what I’m reading/watching.

Until next time, take care.

Things I’ve been…reading and watching

When I’m not writing or working as my alter ego (super badass librarian), I read a lot of books and watch a lot of tv shows. I am a total geek.

tv and books

Mister Scarlett has joked that I watch pretty much every piece of trash on tv. I disagree, I watch highly entertaining, highly education television…*ahem* Actually I do watch an awful lot of tv, but it’s part of my downtime so I don’t feel guilty.

Here are a few tv and books shows I’ve been enjoying recently:

iZombie

izombie

I’ve just watched the last episode of season 3 on Netflix. I love this show! Such a great concept with lots of humor and questions about how zombies would handle integrating into society once they are ‘revealed’.

The 100

the-100-recap

This show just keeps getting better and better. Although *MAJOR SPOILER READ NO FURTHER IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN SEASON 4* I can’t believe they killed Roan. He was one of my favorite characters *sobs*

I would recommend this if you love gritty, futuristic drama.

American Gods

I watched this weekly on Amazon Prime. It was the most visually stunning, fucked up show I’ve seen in a while. I love what David Slade did with some Hannibal episodes, and this was no different. It was amazing and confusing, and I’m sooo hoping they make another series.

Those are just a few. I’ve also been watching Dark Matter (excellent sci-fi show on the SciFi channel), Lethal Weapon, Shadowhunters, Reign, Quantico. The list goes on!

Now onto books. I consume books like a yummy piece of cake. I get through 2-3 a week. Here my favourites from the last few weeks:

Wicked Things by Callie Hart

wicked things

Love, love, love Zeth Mayfair, almost as much as adore Callie Hart. I’ve only just discovered her books in the past few months (thank you, Kindle Unlimited!) and I’ve become a complete fan girl. Zeth fucking Mayfair is amazing – dark, brooding, violent and completely adorable. You really should check out the Blood and Roses series!

Come Sundown by Nora Roberts

come sundown

I’ve had a very long relationship with Nora Roberts, as I’m sure most of us romance readers have. In my eyes she is the Queen of romance. I remember reading Homeport many, many, many years ago and falling in love. That’s when I first realised I wanted to write what I write. Come Sundown is the latest in her stand alone romantic suspense novels, and in my opinion, is one of the better ones. Cowboys, romance and crime. Definite winner!

Delicate Ink by Carrie Ann Ryan

delicate ink

This book has been on my kindle for over six months and finally stared it. All I can say is wow, how have I NOT read this series?! I believe it’s up to something like book 8. I’m kicking myself for missing out. Tattoos, hot sex, bearded hero…yummy. The good thing is I can purchase each book every time I reach a writing goal – that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it 😉
