Debut Book Stress

Debut Book Stress


Hello! And thanks for stopping by. Once a month, I will pop up a short blog post filling my legions of fans (bit much?) in on what I’ve been working on, what I’ve been reading, and what is coming up.


What I’ve been working on:

After almost twelve months of incredibly hard work, writing and editing ‘This is Kaylah’, I can finally see the finish line. BUT! This also happens to be the start of yet another incredibly challenging journey – publishing followed by marketing my debut book as a new author. I have been plagued with sleepless nights over my seemingly endless ‘To Do List’. In between chewing my fingernails off, I try and remind myself not to stress, to take each step at a time and most importantly, to breathe!

Big thanks to all the support and guidance I have received from the Romance Writers of Australia of which I am a member. Great organisation to be a part of!

What I’ve been reading:

I recently finished reading The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang. I LOVED it. It’s passionate and quirky and … filled with steamy sex scenes. I highly recommend this book, unless you have an issue with sex and swearing in novels, in which case, I definitely do not recommend it.


What’s coming up:

‘This is Kaylah’ is coming up! My debut book will be available in only a few weeks. Bring it on! Please sign up to my newsletter to be notified of the exact release date. You will also be sent a complimentary short story, or as I like to call it, a ‘lunch time’ read. PS: I won’t spam you!
