News: Lacey Dearie's Hiatus

Hi everyone!

I just wanted to write a short update on where I'm at right now with my writing. Over the summer I'm releasing a bunch of short Leger stories that have been sitting around for a while. They're around 8,000 words each. Provisional release dates are:

Leger's Luck: 10th July 2019
Leger's Prank: 20th July 2019
Leger's Mother: 30th July 2019
Leger's Father: 10th August 2019
Leger's Summer: 20th August 2019
Leger's Storm: 30th August 2019
Leger's Detective School: 10th September 2019
Leger's Autumn: 21st September 2019
Leger's Spell: 1st October 2019
Leger's Gratitude: 1st November 2019
Leger's Angel: 1st December 2019
Leger's Resolution: 26th December 2019
Leger's Ninth Life: 1st January 2020

These dates are subject to change - it's a tight schedule but I'm hopeful I can stick to it. Other than these, I have no plans for any other books in the future, certainly as Lacey Dearie. I've been working on some darker short stories and flash fiction which I'm sending to magazines, in the UK, America and other English speaking countries. I'm hopeful that somebody will pick up at least one of them (I have five up for sale) but if they're still unpublished by next summer, I'll compile them into an anthology under my real name. 

This Monday I start a new job. I've done accountancy, I've done legal, I've done perfumery and I've done the social media entrepreneur thing. You could say I've used up a few of my nine lives! Now it's time for a new job in a new field. I'm working in finance! I'm really excited about this new chapter of my life but it's going to take up a lot of my energy, so the blogs will be few and far between for the time being, just while I get my bearings. I'll put all my focus into the Leger schedule and my job.

Things will keep ticking over on Rock Paper Spirit over the summer months. I have a bunch of reviews to do and some interviews that I'm halfway through. I'm also accepting guest posts over there so if anyone fancies contributing, do let me know.

Other than that, I have a few new websites that I had planned to work on during the summer months. Now that I have a job, those plans will be put on hold, but you're welcome to bookmark them for when I start adding to them in the future!

Travel: Broken Heels
Motherhood: The Nine Month Hug

Keep in touch, and have a great summer!
