My book

So, I've just made the order for those who have bought signed copies. These will be delivered to me, I'll sign them, and then I'll send them on. I'll tweet and update here when I have the books in my hands, and I'll also tweet when I send them out too. I don't know how long it'll take for them to arrive, but it shouldn't be too long, I hope! For all my bitching and whining about it, I really am touched that people want it. One of the things about depression is that it makes everything bleak and pointless. Instead of focusing on the fact that people have bought copies it made me focus on the negative. Every single sale does matter to me and I really do appreciate every single one. I'm putting a lot of effort into doing these signing and I'm saying this not because I want the attention or anything like but because I want you to understand how much you, the reader, mean to me. As for my next book, that's already written. I'll spending a lot of time going through that and making sure it's as good as I can get it. I'll probably put up a teaser at some point, which will probably be the first chapter. I'm really pleased with it though. During the rest of the year, I have a secret project codenamed 'Project Gin and Tonic' that I'll start working on. Not only that but in November I'll start working on a brand new novel. Anyone who wants to know what it's like for me to write a novel will find November particularly interesting as I'll be tweeting and blogging about the highs and lows. It'll also be a good chance to meet me and get a book signed if you didn't buy a signed copy. I like to hang out in Starbucks while I write and there's only one Starbucks where I live. Just watch my twitter account @racheljwrites to see if I'll be in or not.

First Post!

So this is the first post on my new blog dedicated to just my writing.  This is where you'll find everything you need to know about me, what I'm up to with my writing, and how to get a hold of my books.  There will also be sample chapters and sneak peeks at what I'm working on.  If there's any exciting news then it will appear here first and on my twitter account:

Feel free to leave a comment, ask questions, tweet me, etc.  I'm fairly easy going and will happily get back to you as soon as I can.  I do live in the UK so you might have to wait until I'm awake, but I will try to get back as quickly as I can.

Watch this space!
