It’s been such a long time since I wrote a post, even failing to announce the publication of part two of The House of Birds and Butterflies – The Lovebirds. It came out a couple of weeks ago, and it’s had a fab reception so far with eight, five-star reviews on Amazon.
It’s publication week for part three, Twilight Song, which comes out on Friday, and I’m hoping readers will love it just as much!
While I’ve been failing to update my website, I’ve been busy putting the finishing touches to the paperback of The House of Birds and Butterflies, which comes out this summer. There’s always extra material to do, like the dedication and acknowledgements, and this time round there’s also a Q&A with me at the back, about my inspiration for writing this book – among other things – which I hope you’ll enjoy reading.
I’ve also been keeping up with my reading and in a future post will update you on the brilliant novels I’ve devoured recently – Louise Candlish’s Our House and the new Karen Swan summer read, The Greek Escape, are particular highlights.
Now that the weather’s starting to feel springlike, we’ve put the furniture back on our deck, which is beyond exciting. For anyone who follows me on Instagram, The Deck (#decklife) features heavily. My husband, David, built it on the back of our kitchen last year, and I love it. I’m determined to spend as much time as possible on it this summer, writing, reading and watching the birds on the feeders.
Added to that I’ve been turning the scribbled beginnings of my next book into a fully formed synopsis, and I couldn’t be more excited about this new idea. I hope I’ll be able to share more about it with you all soon.
So that’s about it! Lots of lovely bookish things as always, with some – hopefully – exciting things on the horizon. I’d love to know what you’ve been up to, what you’ve been reading and whether you’ve had a chance to dip into any of The House of Birds and Butterflies.
Enjoy the sunshine!
