I’m sitting here wondering if I’ve ever written a series that I’ve been more eager to share. I suppose this series is special to me for a number of reasons. It’s the first one I’ve written since becoming a mother! The full story there is that I forgot I had a series of deadlines in 2021. I’d intended to cancel them and take extended maternity leave, actually, but I, uh, forgot. Which SO isn’t like me. Seriously, pregnancy brain is a thing.
I went for it. In all honesty, it was hard, hard work balancing the pace I had to write and edit at with a newborn, but I made it, and I’m so very proud of the result. You’re about to meet Cerys Concordia… I had such a blast with her.
Anyway, when Bonnie was about seven weeks old, like a slap across the face, I remembered these deadlines. I sat there and wondered if I could just go for it and meet them anyway. I’d have seven to eight weeks to write each book. Back to back. Young baby. Sleep deprivation. Yikes.
Magical Dating Agency is a trilogy and you can expect a series lighter than my usual. The humour is dialled up a notch, the romance is slow burn and central to the story, and as you’ll see from the first few chapters, I allowed my imagination to go wild with the creatures and rules in this hidden, magical society called Nepos. This one will leave you feeling good. Which is definitely a reflection and conscious response to the times. I felt like I needed this book to boost me, and I really hope it will give that boost to you too.
Love & Curse Making is book one in the series and releases January 14th, 2022. You can check out the blurb and preorder right here!
