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.

The mind is willing, but the body is weak…

dog-illness-symptomsI have been very absent for the last few months. You may ask where the hell have I been and what the hell have I been doing?

I don’t usually post much personal information on my site but I have a long term condition called lupus. Lupus is an auto-immune disease that attacks your internal organs. It can be very debilitating. Rather than going into detail I’ll include a link for those who want to know more – http://www.lupus.org/

I’m lucky, my lupus could be much worse but it does mean my immune system is pretty much non-existence. Since Christmas I’ve been having numerous stomach issues. The doctors believe it started out as a virus. I couldn’t eat anything but rice and white bread for weeks. I lost a lot of weight. At the end of February I started to recover…and then two weeks ago I had to go into hospital to get what they thought was a tumor removed from my right sinus. It turns out the doctor thinks it’s a benign polyp but I won’t know for sure for a few weeks. I also had a very nasty sinus abscess.

It’s been a very tough few months!

Right now I’m just recovering. I’m spending my time resting, re-cooperating, reading and watching lots of shows on Amazon/Netflix. It’s going to take another few weeks before I’m back at work and maybe another few after that before being back up to my normal functioning level.

So what can you expect from me in 2015? There will be more books coming – the final book in the Mission Pleasure series, Enslaving Dana, will be out later in the year.

After that? I’ll see where the muse decides to take me…
