Autumn Catch-up

Hello Everyone!!

Oops! It’s been nearly two months since my last blog, and I can only apologise for that. However, please be assured that the reason I’ve neglected my website is because I’ve been busy, busy, busy with my new projects! So here is a little update on what I’ve been up to, before we get back to our (hopefully) regular blog posts! Here we go…

The Little Book of Marilyn…

My next book – The Little Book of Marilyn – is all finished and has gone through editing successfully. Yay! It’s always such a relief when the editing part of the process is done. First of all because I know then that the publisher actually likes the book (yep, I still get those mind demons that tell me I’m no good – ask my husband, he has to live with me!) and secondly because it gives me a little break to work on new projects while I await the proofs. For those who may not know, the proof pages arrive when the book has been laid out just as it will look in the published version. It’s really exciting to get to this stage, because I get to see all the design, the photos, the font etc… I then need to check it through for any small errors, before it heads off to the printer. So it really is an exciting time. As well as the edits, the cover has now been designed and I absolutely love it. It’s colourful, bold and lots of fun! As soon as I’m able, I’ll share it here and on my social media. Watch this space!

Looking Ahead…

So now that The Little Book of Marilyn is finished, what’s next? Well I’m happy to report that I’ve just completed a new book! I’m not able to say what it is yet, but rest assured I will let you know as soon as I can. My agent read the first draft and really enjoyed it, so that was a great day! I’ve spent the past month doing some structural edits and now it’s gone back to him… As of now, I’m awaiting his verdict, so please hold a good thought for me. 🙂

One Minute Book Reviews…

During the past few months I’ve continued to share One Minute Book Reviews on my Instagram (@MMWriterGirl). If you’re looking for a good book to read, please check them out on my channel, and maybe give me a follow!

I’ll be back with another blog post soon, this time talking about three wonderful books that were sent to me over the past few months. In the meantime, I hope you’ve enjoyed this little update and I hope you’re having a lovely autumn so far!

Until next time,

Michelle x
