Hi, everyone.

How are the resolutions going? 🙂  I don’t really do resolutions, but I am involved in a fitness challenge, and I’m still going strong with that.

Anyhow, this past week I worked on the secret project second book. I feel as if I now have a proper first draft. Obviously, it needs several more passes and reads, but now it needs to rest for a short while so that perspective can do its work. Apart from a few promo graphics and stuff, I didn’t work on anything else this week.

In the coming week, I’ll be doing the final read through of Breeding Ugly and uploading it to all the other eBook sites, ready for pre-order/release day. I’m not going to commit to anything else in particular, but I will do other things. I’ll let you know next week.

This week, I finished the following books:

  • Love You to Death by Meg Cabot (audio)
  • The Princess Bride by William Goldman

See you all next week.

Hi, everyone.

Happy New Year!

It is three weeks since my last post. Well, it was Christmas Day and New Year’s Day on the last two Mondays. So, what have I been doing for the last three weeks? Apart from eating and drinking, that is.

First off, I finished the draft version of the first part of the secret project, which is now out with a few readers, as this is a new genre for me. I also worked on part two and have a rough draft of that. I finished off HV5, Breeding Ugly (see below for cover), which is now up for eBook pre-order at Amazon, to be released on 29 January 2018. I probably did some other bits and pieces, but I can’t remember now.

What will I be doing this coming week? Well, hopefully, working on the secret project (possibly both books, but we’ll see). That’s it. Unless I decide to write a short story for submission. That’s a possibility as I was looking at some of the options this weekend. Is that enough? I think so.

Books I’ve finished since the last time:

  • Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J K Rowling
  • Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J K Rowling
  • The Forever Court by Dave Rudden (audio)

That’s all for now. See you soon.



11/12/2017 – 17/12/2017

Hi, everyone.

So, admin, admin, admin. And a read-through of the secret project.

This coming week I’ll be putting the finishing touches to the secret project and starting a draft of the second part of the secret project, secret 2. 🙂

Then, Christmas!

Technically, there should be another post on Christmas Day. That may not happen. We’ll see.

This week I finished the following books:

  • The Beyond Experience by Michael Reid Jr
  • Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J K Rowling

See you all whenever my next post is.



04/12/2017 – 10/12/2017

Hi, everyone.

So, this past week has all been admin and tidying, except for one thing. The book proof I’d been waiting for finally arrived. At last! And now, the book is available for you to buy. It’s the paperback version of A First Year of Random, which is in a larger format, just perfect for your coffee table. 🙂 (See below, or go to my Instagram page for video and pics www.instagram.com/julietboydauthor.)

This coming week I’ll be continuing with the admin. I’ve probably got at least a couple more days to go. After that, I’ll do another read through of the secret project. I’d like to get that as close to done as possible this week. That’s probably enough, with Christmas looming.

This week I finished the following books:

  • Sane New World: Taming the Mind by Ruby Wax
  • Authority by Jeff VanderMeer

See you all next week.

27/11/2017 – 03/12/2017

Hi, everyone.

So, what did I end up doing over the past week? Well, I worked on the secret project. I did a read aloud of HVC5. I also wrote and sent off a short story submission.

In this coming week I probably won’t do a lot of writing. It’s going to be an admin week. I was going to do this over the Christmas period, but then I decided why do I want to do mind-numbingly boring stuff during a time you’re supposed to enjoy yourself? It might not take all week, but I have quite a bit of stuff to sort out/tidy that isn’t writing-related, as well. Some of which I just need to sort so it can go up in the loft and be forgotten about.

This week I finished the following book:

  • Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff (audio)

And before I go, I have an offer on a couple of my books at the moment (see my website for full details at http://www.julietboyd.com).


See you all next week.

20/11/2017 – 26/11/2017

Hi, everyone.

First off, today is the last day of my sale on the Rag & Bones boxset (see previous post), if you’re interested in getting a copy.

Now, down to work. I have spent the whole of the last week working on the secret project. I still have a few bits and bobs I need to do before I give it a little rest. Those should be finished this week. I’ve researched a few more opportunities I might want to submit to. So, I’ll also look at those this week, and work on them, if I decide to do them.

This week I have completed the following books:

  • The Fantastic Wold of Terry Jones by Terry Jones
  • The Ministry of Ghosts by Alex Shearer (audio)

See you all next week.



13/11/2017 – 19/11/17

Hi, everyone.

Not much to tell this week. Decided I didn’t like any of the short story opportunities, so didn’t do that. Instead, I went through my secret project text a couple of times.

In the coming week, I will be doing the same. 🙂 With a little disruption, as I have a visitor on one of the working days.

In other news, I’m having a sale on one of my books.

BF Sale

Get it while you can.

This week, I have completed the following books (yes, my reading is related to what I’m working on):

  • The Worry Website by Jacqueline Wilson
  • Fantastic Mr Fox by Roald Dahl
  • Vulgar the Viking and a Midsummer Night’s Scream by Sarah Horne, Odin Redbeard
  • Revenge of the Phantom Furball y Sam Hay
  • Space Penguins Star Attack by Lucy Courtenay

See you all next week.
