It's been a couple weeks since my last update. The reason for this is that I've been hard at work on my new novella "Watching Henry Lawton" and am happy to report that the first draft is complete -- woohoo. It's always a thrill to reach the end of a story and type THE END. The initial elation is often short lived as the realisation dawns that there is still a huge amount of work to do before the story is ready for anyone to read, but I always enjoy it while it lasts and celebrate with a few drinks. For now the manuscript will be put aside for a few weeks while I concentrate on other matters. I've narrowed the choice of artwork for Henry Lawton down to two images and three different designs. I'll post the final image right here as soon as the decision is made.

While Henry waits I'm busy researching and planning my next book, which won't be strictly an erotic novel, but will feature plenty of sex. It's shaping up to be pretty epic -- a story spanning five decades of love, lust, success, deception, greed and revenge. I'm working on some wonderful characters and hoping to capture the spirit of the 70s and 80s "bonkbusters" I love so much by authors like Harold Robbins and Jackie Collins.
I'm also working on a couple of short stories including “Ryan’s Secret” which is a spin off tale from "The Sex Cabaret". I'll be posting Ryan’s Secret right here as a free ebook as soon as it’s finished and edited as a thank you to everyone who has downloaded and read my books.  Look out for that very soon.

So it's all work at the minute but in the best possible way.  With the snow coming down heavily today, it’s a perfect time to stay at home and write.
I'm looking forward to a luxury weekend away at the beginning of February but until then I'll be flat out working on these projects. I love how "Watching Henry Lawton" has turned out and can't wait publish it later this year.

Take care and stay safe.
