Where have I been?

Hey guys!

So I disappeared for a while and while I have been gone something has happened… I’ve returned to thousands of views and I am not quite sure why? I may not understand why a post that didn’t really stand out from my others, suddenly gets me 100’s of views a day but I am extremely grateful!

Now, I know I disappeared for a few months (okay almost 6 months!) but I had a genuine reason. I have bought a house and after 6 months I have finally gotten the internet sorted. Which means I have had 6 months of nothing but chilling with my books and my writing.

Over the last 6 months I have mainly been focusing on transforming my home from a 70’s bungalow in to a modern home. It is taking some work but with the living room almost complete and the kitchen well under way I decided it was time to get some sort of normality back. Once I have the house looking how I would like it, I’ll tell you all about it!

So as I said, all I have really had over the last 6 months were my books and my writing. Although I have really slowed my reading down I have managed to stay almost on target. I have hit the 50 book mark and plan on really pushing over the next few months on completing books (okay… I have started a lot of books recently… didn’t finish that many).

On the writing front, I have managed to almost complete the first draft of my most recent middle grade book. Although I wont really discuss the premise of the book, I can say that it is aim is to empower young girls to show them that they can do what they want in life. So far it has been fun and energetic to work on, and I am hoping that I can continue with this energy in to the editing and polishing stages.

So although I have been absent I have been busy.

I would love to hear about what you have been up to over the last 6 months and I would love to know your favourite book you have read so far this year! Leave it in the comments below!
