Hello again everyone!
I know, it’s been a while since I last wrote to you, and you’d be forgiven for thinking I’ve given up blogging for Lent, (not true!) but I’ve been so busy that I don’t know if I’m baked or boiled at the moment.
Update on what’s been happening:
The short story I submitted back at the end of January (the ‘Joe’ in the header) is being featured in the anthology ‘A Haunting of Words’ via Scout Media and is due for release probably in June.
I sent my latest book, Sunshine Girl, out to beta readers a few weeks back and the general consensus is that it’s great! Several have said that they like it so much they are going to actually buy the book once it’s published (and that’s fantastic news!). To that end, (and feeling ever hopeful!) I’ve submitted it to a rather large agency to see whether anyone would like to take it on – with the aim of having it published by one of the ‘Big Five’ – if you’re going to dream big you have to aim high!
I’m also part-way through my next book – Casadastraphobia – another book for adults (definitely for adults!) as well as working in my day job. No, before you ask, there’s not enough hours in the day for my liking!
I’ve been sharing a lot of tips on writing skills that I’ve found on Pinterest via Twitter and Facebook, so if you’d like to read any, do please follow me on either (or both) – I don’t just post ‘serious’ stuff – there’s some lighter moments, too! On FB you’ll find me at https://www.facebook.com/authorjillturner and on Twitter, I’m: https://twitter.com/JillMTurner – follow me and I’ll follow you right back!
Oh, and do please feel free to interact with me. I don’t bite and I love to chat!
Until next time,
