Is it really September already?

We're more than a fortnight into the month, and I still can't believe it's September already. I still remember the goals I set at the start of the year — finishing The Guy from the Library was certainly one of them — as well as all the projects, scheduling troubles, and other personal admin follies I knew I'd be contending with. I guess I just can't believe a brand new year will be starting soon.

Right now, I'm working on another Somerville Story, The Guy from the Park, though I really should get a wriggle on with The Guy from the Wedding. But I've hit a snag with that one. The old outline I was using when I started that story isn't working for me anymore. It didn't give me enough room to explore the characters' personalities enough to let them shine through in the story.

I stumbled upon a new planning system, and now that I've reconsidered Wedding in that light, I may go back to the drawing board. Hopefully a revised outline will mean faster chapter updates once things get going again.

Hopefully 🤞

Out Now: The Guy from the Internet

A sweet romance with a touch of family drama.

Holly Chee does not have her life together. She's flip-flopped on uni courses and career choices, and somehow scared off her long-term fiancée-to-be, much to the chagrin of her immigrant parents.

But she does have her streaming channel, where she broadcasts her art from her one-bedroom Mount Lawley apartment. And she has that guy from France... assuming he's even who he says he is.

The Guy From The Internet is a sweet #OwnVoices Asian-Australian romance novella, set in the world of Somerville Downs.

Now available on Amazon in digital and paperback.
