It's new book time again....


I've just finished another novel, which is currently with my first test/proofreader.  After that there will be more revisions, another test read, etc., etc.; the whole process does take a long time!  It's a bit longer than my others, at 125K words (the others are between 85 and 95K).


I'll tell you more about it nearer the time, but for now I'll just say that if you like relationship orientated contemporary drama, romantic suspense and family saga, you will like KINGS AND QUEENS ~ and if you are interested in these people, you will like it even more!

  1. Congratulations on finishing your new novel, Terry! I like the sound of it from all the things you've listed. I love family sagas especially and that's what I'm aiming for in my novel which is in its VERY early stages. Good luck with the revisions.

    1. I've always loved reading them, Jay; and I thought I'd go a bit longer this time; most of my novels take place over just a few years and are very much one story. I tried writing one about 20 years ago but don't think I was really ready as it wasn't very good, ha ha! It's had 5 drafts already, but I will have to give it another go-though before I am ready to say, yes, that's it! Thanks, and good luck with yours, too!

  2. Ah, it's nice to finally finish and announce your title, too! You promised me a potted history (pardon the pun) before the book comes out, so I get all the references!!

    1. Yes, it's written, but I want to go through it again. It'll be ages yet, anyway! Certain people who read every sentence three times still have to read all 125k words, and I'm am doing another revision to get it down to 120K :)
