Happy New Year

With 2012 almost upon us I thought I'd drop by and fill you in on what has been happening for me.

Matronly Duties is going great and is more than half done. I've been on a roll for the last week knocking out  more than 10000 words and I'm on target to make my deadline.

My short story Life in Suitcases is being published as part of an anthology for valentines day and I will have more details on that in the new year.

I also have a few other writing projects in the works just waiting to hear from publishers.

Lastly and the biggest news of all. Some of you may know that I do some Graphic Design work. I have landed a part-time job making book covers for a couple of indie book publishers so keep an eye out for my work gracing the covers of some books in the near future.

I wish every one a wonderful 2012 it is going to be a big year for me.

Happy New Year

Working Hard

So it's been a month since I got word that I was going top be published and I have been busy writing lots and lots.

If you didn't get a chance to read the first 6 chapters on TWCS I apologise as I have now had to take them down in preparation for publishing.

For those of you who wonder what my leads look like here's a little insite into what I see when I'm writing.

Bethanie Greene

Until next time keep happy

My First Original Fiction

As some of you may know I have been writing Twilight Fan-Fiction for a little over a year now. Recently The Writers Coffee Shop ran a contest for their Romance Series Original Fiction. I'd had an idea floating around for a story that I knew I couldn't do justice if  I wrote it as fanfic. Instead I decided to enter into the contest.

Bethanie Greene has had her life planned out for her since the age of thirteen. Now as all of her hard work and dedication is about to come to fruition, a chance meeting with the James family will turn her world upside down and test her faith in everything she believes.
You can read the first 6 chapters here:

Recently the results of the contest were announced and I am proud to say that my story got Runner Up TWCS Choice.  You can see the results here

So what does this mean?

My book is being published!

Yay I'm so excited.

Please follow this blog or my Twitter account for details on the publishing TWCS Publishing House which will occur sometime in 2012.

Welcome to my Blog

This Blog will be all things pertaining to my Original Fiction
