    First standalone story

    Spent Love In a departure from the Club Aegis series, I’m pleased to announce my first standalone publication, a novella featuring two professionals each at a significant turning point in their lives. Faye and Michael are strangers, but they are brought together on a windswept beach by Michael’s dog, Artie. They each have major decisions to make regarding their futures – can they move on and leave their pasts behind, and will they move on as acquaintances, friends…or something more? As this one is only novella-length, there won’t be a paperback version, and at least initially, it’s only available on Amazon. Available now, and you can find a list of links here.

In the meantime, I’m now revisiting the complete first draft of the second book in the series – Love Is Danger. Also, unable to contain my excitement on receiving the cover art for its predecessor, I’ve submitted the request for the creation of the cover…

    It’s on its way … but not just yet

    And what is “it”? My next novel. Well, “next” novel may be something of a misnomer for a couple of reasons. It’s actually my first novel as “Christie Adams”, but it’s a new version of my first ever novel, published in 2013. And, I hope, an improved version. It’s also the start of a series of seven novels. I don’t have a release date yet – there’s still quite a way to go, but I am approaching the point where the manuscript will be going off for editing. I also need to commission the cover art, which will probably happen in January. Then comes the formatting. So, although I don’t…
