So, today my second full length ghost story, Spindrift, was released. I’ve been bust touring around chatting about the book, so I won’t say more here. I try to minimise my internet time on release days, because otherwise I spend a lot of time refreshing all my social media feeds in the hope that someone liked it, which is silly for anyone, but especially so when you live in a different timezone from many readers.
On workdays, avoiding the internet is easy. Otherwise, I get sneaky. Sometimes I go walking. Sometimes, like today, I have a writing free day at home: no words, minimal social media, no planning or admin or redrafting. So, here’s what I did today…
1. Tried to put a dent in my to-read pile
2. Drank a lot of tea
3. Wandered down the garden to see if the blackberries were ripe
4. Did actual baking
5. Did something writing related. That is, I signed a contract for Recovery, the third in my dragon series.
