News, news, glorious news!
I’ll bet you thought you wouldn’t hear much from me until after this baby of mine is born, BUT, I couldn’t stay quiet (nor could I stay idle) so I have a lot of news to share with you all…
As you already know, I’m expecting my fifth baby and the pregnancy hormones have really been messing with my energy levels and my creativity. It took until almost 18weeks before I stopped having morning sickness (or as I like to call it, ‘progressively-worse-as-the-day-goes-on-sickness’) and since then, I’ve found enough energy to get some work done again. This work has come in the form of collaborating with my husband on his first romance novel – Till There Was You.
This has been a fantastic way for me to keep busy even though my pregnant brain isn’t as creative as it was a few months ago, because hubby did all the creating while I focused on the technical side of building the story. Right now, Till There Was You is sitting with the editor, so when we get it back we’ll be able to see how much more work needs to be done which is when we’ll set a release date. We’re hoping we’ll have it in your hot little hands by the end of June, so keep an eye out for the cover and first few chapters reveal that will come in the next couple of weeks!
Here’s a little hint of what’s to come….
Haunted by his past, Lincoln Ryan abandoned his life in Australia, retreating halfway around the world to the town of Newsham, a place as remote and cold as his heart had become. It suited him perfectly—for a while.
When a fateful event forces him to help out local bar owner, Lily Colbert, Linc finds his life of solitude is suddenly flooded with the light and hope of one very stubborn woman. Slowly his walls begin to crumble, as he lets the enigmatic Lily in. But when Linc and Lily dance perilously close to the ‘L’ word, his secrets re-emerge, rocking him to the core as he tries once again to outrun his past.
However, the thing about the past is that it always seems to follow you around, and for Linc, hiding may not be an option anymore. Not when he has Lily. Not when he might finally have a future….
Till There Was You is the debut novel by Wade Anderson, co-written with his wife, Lilliana Anderson (author of Drawn and 47 Things).

More writing news…
The wonderful thing about helping hubster with his book has meant that I’ve felt the stirrings of my own creativity once again. At the moment, I’m having days where I can’t wait to write and others where all I want to do is sleep. But, we took a vote in my reader group (Join here, if interested…https://www.facebook.com/groups/438800699591852/ ) and the general consensus was for me to work on Played (Fire & Lies bk 2). That book has been a long time coming after I had to push it back after my carpel tunnel forced me to take time off then I managed to lose the notebook that contained the entire series outline. I feel like I’m starting this series from scratch going back into it, but I’m slowly working through it, and hope to have it ready and out to you by the end of the year (I hope it will have been worth the wait!).
I’m now 24 weeks pregnant, and if you’re not following me on Facebook you will have missed the announcement—IT’S A GIRL! The whole family is super excited to welcome a little pink bundle into the house this September.
