Ethan News!

Hi guys!  I'm back after a looooong break - from blogging, social media, reading, exercise, sleeping and just all round life.  And why?

'Cause I've been so engrossed in three handsome brothers!

I've had so many readers contacting me this year asking about Ethan's release - messages that are appreciated more than you know.  They inspire me and encourage me to write. (And these messages often come at times when I'm feeling frustrated or confused about a plot point.  It's amazing how a reader message often helps me forward.)

So before I give you Ethan's news, a huge THANK YOU to everyone for your ongoing support and patience.  I know Ethan's story has taken a long time but boy was this book a challenge! A tough one but exciting and incredible too.  I've learnt so much from writing this book and I think this final Keeper book will stay with me forever simply because of my journey with it.  (I'll post another blog post soon on why it was such a challenge but in the mean time, check out my thoughts on writing a series.)

Okay, so where's Ethan?

The great news is that his book is written.  (Send high fives and hugs 'cause did I tell you how much of a challenge this one was? :) Yip, lovely readers, his story, and the conclusion to my Keepers series is finished.  Right now, it's in the hands of my dynamic editors at HarperImpulse who are going to help me add the final sparkles.  (I'll be chatting more about this process soon.)

I should have a release date shortly and I promise to share it as soon as I do.

So for now, whilst I await feedback from my editors, I have that post-exam feeling again - relief that it's done but wondering if I passed!!  (You know that one?)

I'll be back next week with more news.  And remember, I can be found on Facebook or Twitter and I love to hear from you guys so please come say hi!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend,
Rae
