I would really like to be announcing with that title that I had achieved some sort of success towards my goal of getting published but alas so far that has not been the case. However – Yeah!  Have just succeeded in the NaNoWriMo challenge of writing 50,000 words in the month of November and had my second novel, Before the Dawn,  validated. I have to say it was a struggle to get it finished and a couple of days ago didn’t think I was going to do it so it just goes to show what can be done with a deadline looming.

Feeling slightly queasy now that I have pasted it onto a website and it is presumably available for someone in the organisation to read – I’m assuming they don’t do that!?! Too busy I would imagine. If they do though it won’t make much sense, being the second book in a trilogy, and, at the moment it’s particularly badly written – I will say that that’s because of the rush of getting the words down but perhaps it’s just that I write badly!

Anyhow it is now over and I’m going to take a break and perhaps do some organising of things in readiness for Christmas which I am sure will please the family.  Although I do have a little short story idea I’d like to get down so I might have a bit of a play with that!

I think it’s also time to face the fact that I’m not going to find representation for my first novel, A Single Step, so I need to get my ducks in a row to self publish probably in the New Year. Which reminds me I need to do something about my book cover – so much to do! However for this evening I think it’s time to get a bottle open and do some celebrating!

Thanks for reading!

About Georgia Rose

Georgia Rose is a writer and the author of the romantic and suspenseful Grayson Trilogy books: A Single Step, Before the Dawn and Thicker than Water. A short story, The Joker, based on a favourite character from the series followed and is free to download from Amazon. Her fourth novel, Parallel Lies, a standalone, encompasses crime along with Georgia’s usual blending of genre. Following a long stint working in the law Georgia set up her own business providing administration services for other companies which she does to this day managing to entwine that work along with her writing. Georgia’s background in countryside living, riding, instructing and working with horses has provided the knowledge needed for some of her storylines; the others are a product of her passion for people watching and her overactive imagination! Her busy life is set in a tranquil part of rural Cambridgeshire in the UK where she lives with her much neglected husband and dog. Their son, currently at university, comes and goes and their daughter, having delighted them all for long enough, has eventually moved out, got married, and is discovering the joys of being all grown up and having a mortgage.
