My Writing & Publishing Plans for 2023

Hello, hello! The first month of the year is almost over, and it won’t be long before the days get longer and the nights are lighter, and snowdrops and daffodils spring up out of the ground. Basically, things will look a lot brighter soon.

I’m not one for New Year’s resolutions, but I do like to think ahead and set a few intentions for the coming year. They’re not hard and fast – I’ve learned that life doesn’t like to stay on a strict schedule and things crop up that knock you off track – but these are the loose, flexible plans I’ve got for writing and publishing in 2023.

My 2023 writing and publishing plans

January

February/March

  • Write secret fairytale retelling project! (More about this coming very soon)

April/May

June

July

  • Write and publish A Fair Bargain

August/September

  • Write and publish A Fair Descent

October

  • Publish Fair Tales collection paperback

November

  • Publish secret fairytale retelling project

December

  • Rest! I’ve published in December the last couple of years and it’s absolutely broken me, so I will be spending December 2023 enjoying the festive season and spending time with my family.

And that’s about it! What are you looking forward to most? I can’t wait to share more about my secret project with you! I think you’re going to love the entire series, if you’re a fan of sweet romance and fairytale retellings, you’ll love what we’ve got planned for you!

Happy reading, friends.

Enchanted Flames ARC sign ups are open!

Hey friends, how is the penultimate month of the year treating you so far? I hope you’re getting into the festive spirit, whether you’re looking forward to Thanksgiving or beyond to Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa and New Year.

If you’ve been around here for a while, you’ll know all about Enchanted Waters and Enchanted Forests, but did you know our next anthology, Enchanted Flames is coming June 2023?

The ARC sign up sheet is already open for applications, so if you loved our past collections, or you’d just really love to read an early review copy of ten fire-magic and mythical creature focused fantasy stories, then click the cover below to apply!

My story in this collection is titled The Wyvern and the Woodwitch, and follows an apothecary in the Salamander Kingdom as she tries to find the cure to a mysterious sickness that has begun to spread across the realm. With the help of a curious wyvern, she journeys into the heart of the forest to find the rare plant she needs to create the cure, but when she crosses paths with an arrogant woodcutter, can she complete her task without getting her fingers burned?


If you’re not already a member of our fan group on Facebook, come and join us for all the latest behind the scenes info on our stories, and updates on how much our anthologies have raised for our chosen charities.

We can’t wait to share these stories with you and raise funds for the World Land Trust’s Wildfire Appeal!

Vote for Enchanted Forests in the All Author Cover Contest!

Hi friends! I’ve got a big favour to ask of you today, but don’t worry, it won’t cost you a penny.

Our latest charity anthology, Enchanted Forests, is currently in second place in the All Author Cover Contest, and we’d really appreciate your vote.

We’re neck and neck with another cover and it’s going to be a close run thing all the way to the end, so all support is really appreciated!

Click the cover below to vote:

Thank you so much if you voted! As a charity anthology, we don’t take any royalties as all profits go to the Rainforest Foundation, and therefore we can’t afford to spend much on advertising Enchanted Forests. The first prize of free advertising for the book would help us to reach so many more readers and raise a lot more money for forest conservation. As of right now, we’ve raised over $560 for the Rainforest Foundation, and voting for our cover in the contest will help us to reach our goal of $1,000 raised in the first year.

Thank you, friends!
