Run, Nigel, Run
Oh, hey, it’s my blog! It’s still here! I’m still here!
In all seriousness, I know it’s been a long time since anyone’s heard from me, and I’m really sorry and I promise I won’t go this long without an author update ever again. But, since you’re here, why don’t I give you a little peek into what I’ve been up to?
Generally, when I’m silent on the blog it’s because I’m hard at work on a new novel, and that’s TOTALLY the case this time. I’ve been working on the Ria Miller series almost from the moment I finished Daywalker last spring. It’s been a year of non-stop writing.
I worked on the Ria Miller stories at home, I worked on them in coffee shops. I even worked on them while on a train in Europe. (Okay, that was awesome. I had a tiny bottle of wine and my manuscript and I felt like I was living out every writer’s fantasy.)
Bottom line, I’ve been writing a ton. But it’s so worth it because I’m so in love with these stories and I can’t wait to give you more details about them. I’ll have a lot more to say about Ria Miller in the coming weeks, so stay tuned.
In the rare moments that I wasn’t writing, I tried my hand at running. And, thanks to the encouragement of my good friend Julia Kelly (who writes awesome romance novel that you should totally check out), I even managed to run my first 5K race, knocking out one of my two New Year’s resolutions. (The other is to hit the bestseller list, but that’s for another day.)
I also traveled a lot. I got to plant my little flag in a bunch of new places during the year, like Montreal, Milan, Marseille, Barcelona, Miami, and Palm Springs. I didn’t get to travel much as a kid, so getting to visit so many new places was a treat.
All in all, it was a packed year and one that was super rewarding. But I’m back now, which means I’m going to have news on the Ria Miller front. Stay tuned!
