First day of spring

…and a new novel begins.  Today I began the final chapter of a new adult fantasy that will be published in 2012 and I’ve very much enjoyed crafting, and today I also finished chapter one of the new historical saga set in the 1950s.  It’s a sequel to the WWll novel coming out next April, details of which I’ll share as we get closer to publication date.  I’m writing from Tasmania during this lovely month of early spring and feeling very fortunate to spend this quiet time here where I can write, bake,  walk, watch movies, read, take time to indulge in great coffee, and generally hear myself think.  I am also editing the new children’s book, gearing up for the release of the sequel to The Whisperer for middle readers also in 2012.  It’s going to be a busy year next year for publication but the hard yards are being done now.  No complaints, though.   Here’s a pic of spring blossom from our garden in Adelaide that I snapped just before we left last week and the entire garden was bursting into bloom from fruit trees to roses all stretching in the warmth.
