Why oh why do I struggle so much with the first few chapters of my books. I suspect it's because I don't plot. So by the time I work out who's who and roughly what might happen, I have to backtrack and fill in details to make it all make sense.
Current WIP - called - oh yes, I have a title! Er - no, it's not called that. It's called - Winter Boy, Summer Girl - or it might be Summer Girl, Winter Boy. The hero is Jai Winter twin brother of the dastardly Dickhead Richard from Strangers. The heroine is Summer - not sure of her surname but possibly Dey. Jai is a male model for a BIG company like Hugo Boss or Calvin Klein. Summer is a meteorologist - a research scientist - a cloud spotter.
Of course, I know nothing about the modelling business, nor about meteorology so I'm having to go on Google every few minutes to look stuff up. But that's what makes writing fun, for me at least.
Eight chapters in - about a third of the way through and I have no idea - bar one - what is going to happen. That's fun too because I take the journey with my characters.
I can only write productively in the morning and early afternoon. After that, I'm useless. So I'm also revamping my suspense story - Crossing the Line. I'm trying out an idea suggested by a FB pal, Shelley, who suggested I try and create an anti-hero. Ten chapters into that with my revisions and okay so far but the hard bit is to come. Can I really make a repellent character one that the heroine will end up with?
Watch this space - well not literally.

Me and the BBC!

Filming finished today for my section of a BBC program being made for the Inside Out series to be aired in the autumn. It's a look at the link between DH Lawrence's Lady Chatterley's Lover, the rise of erotic romance and me! I come from very close to where Lawrence was born and raised.

I was filmed at the London Book Fair, and again last Tuesday in Eastwood, Lawrence's birthplace where we walked through the wood where the author imagined the meeting to take place of Lady Chatterley and Mellors, the gamekeeper. Professor John Worthen, Lawrence's esteemed biographer was at High Park Wood with me and gulp - he'd read my book Strangers. He was very kind and great fun.
Today the BBC crew came to my home and filmed me working at my desk and then answering a few questions. It was really exciting. But I have a new regard for those who work in front of the camera with no autocue. It's hard to just speak normally!

Cover Reveal!!!

This is for my next MM - With Or Without Him - out in November with Samhain!
Take one troubled music student and add one cool guy from Saudi and what do you get? A fantastic cover by Kanaxa.

The blurb.....

Everyone has at least one deep-seated fear. For Tyler, it’s being in debt. He’s so desperate to get out and stay out of it, he’ll do almost anything—including selling his body at Saturday night sex parties.

But he refuses to open his mind to anyone, especially the men paying to use him however they want. The only time he’s truly happy is during the week at college, when he can escape into his music.

The moment Haris sees Tyler playing piano at a concert, he falls hard, and he’s willing to do whatever it takes to make the guy his. Even if it means—for the first time in his life—opening his wallet as wide and desperate as his heart.

£20,000 to live with a good-looking guy for four months? How can Tyler resist the chance to ditch the sex party scene for good? But neither man realizes how much they’re risking. And when outside forces close in, ready to destroy them, the trickiest part about the next four months could be just surviving.
