Given your wonderful comments when I announced my pregnancy recently, I thought some of you may be interested in a little bumpdate (bump update). Today, I’m 15 ½ weeks pregnant and I’m not ‘showing’ too much yet. According to my husband, my bump isn’t even big enough to warrant a photo on the blog yet (bah!).
I seem to look more pregnant in the afternoons and evenings than in the mornings (I’ll let you figure that one out), and I’m still waiting for the first trimester fatigue to wain (which is very irritating but at least I don’t feel nauseous any more!). I’ll keep you posted as things progress.
Next topic – that blasted book blurb. I’ve made some more changes based on your feedback, and feel like I’m much closer to nailing it. Who knows, maybe this is the final version. As always, keen to hear your feedback!
Ceara’s desperate for love; Seb’s desperate to get laid. Ceara adores reading novels; Seb hasn’t finished a book in years. Two strangers, both moving from small country towns to Brisbane – the big smoke. As they prepare to attend the same university, their paths seem set to collide, but they keep missing each other. Maybe fate is keeping them apart, or maybe it’s just chance.
When the semester starts, things get complicated. Ceara’s best friend withdraws from her, Seb’s closest mate turns into a sleazebag, and the relentless demands of university make their stress levels soar. Before their first semester is over, both Seb and Ceara will be forced to question who they are and what they want from their lives. Will they have the courage to find the answers, or will they crumble under the pressure? And when they finally meet, will it be love at first sight or a collision of headstrong personalities?
Let me know your thoughts!
Have you heard about Write Club? The first rule of Write Club is to talk about Write Club. So that’s what I’m doing!
Essentially Write Club involves sending in 500 words of your writing anonymously and going into the ring against another writer. Fellow bloggers vote on their faves and the rounds keep going until there’s a final winner.
The writing can be any genre, any style (even poetry) with the word count being the only restriction. There’s an amazing line-up of agents who’ll decide the final winner so I’d definitely consider having a crack. First round kicks off 30 July.
What do you think of the blurb? Are you thinking of participating in Write Club? Anything else exciting going on in your world?
