Did I tell you?

I’m currently working on a new romance novel. Nothing really defined yet, but inspiration is coming as the waves… Back and forth… I really like my new characters. Witty, sweet, sometimes sarcastic.

This is a great escape to a world that, according to me, is quite sick.

I need a feel-good moment. I need to believe in something good again that sparks still exists between people.

This project started to come across my mind two years ago after another aborted break up that just cut me off the hope that love can still exist. I attempted to get back on this last year, but another premature breakup kept me from feeling love and self-appreciation. This on-hold-project is like a non-achieved part of my life.

On the other hand, I really would like to have your opinion on “My name is Siobhán.” Those are coming really slowly and I know this performs quite decently, so I’m curious to know your opinion on the novella. I really really would like to receive your expectations about the story because this project was just the tip of the Iceberg and I have another idea for it in the future.

For those who don’t know where to find it, it is quite easy: on amazon and worldwide. The electronic version is available everywhere.

This novella wouldn’t be real without you, the readers, and although it has transformed from “Dear Diary” to “My name is Siobhán,” this is still there because of you.

You probably know I’m suffering from a severe form of burn out, and still one year later, I’m not feeling at my best. Writing has been a great way to de-clutter my thoughts, even though it has had its ups and downs. I’m counting on you to show me I’m not engaged in a dead end and that my gut feeling is right because lately, this has been a rough path to trust her again.

What would you think if I started a new free novella online? What kind of novella would like to read?

OK let’s stop blabbering here.

See you soon, my loves.

Why did I choose Siobhán as main character name? And other news…

First of all, please let’s talk about the pronunciation.

Siobhán = shiv + awn

I know some of you know how to pronounce it, but to be clear and don’t flay it anymore.

It’s an Irish name and that means “God is gracious” and is related to these names: Joan, Joanne, Joanna, Jane, Sinéad.

I really like this name and I know as I won’t have children but I had a daughter I would have loved to call her this way, but the point isn’t here.

I’ve always been attracted to Irish names and I’ve decided to use them in every single Novel or short novel I’ll be writing in English (not the translations, the novels originally written in English).

I find this name strong and soft at the same time, the one of a kind name, you can’t forget.

Let’s get to the other topics.

I restarted the translation of the trilogy. I got the principal title along with the 3 subs ones and the covers. So it’s working quite well.

I also started 2 other English projects, so I switch from one to another following the inspiration.

I’m quite happy with the journey I’m accomplishing, coming from a non-self-confident person to someone who dares much more than I used to.

“My name is Siobhán”, release date : End of November 2017 – LiLys Editions

I’m flying to Ireland next week. Back to the Homeland, promise I’ll post some pictures.

That’s all for today folks.

That’s a good news

“Dear Diary” has changed title. Its name is now “My Name is Siobhán” and its release will occur by the end of November 2017. I’m happy it is finally happening; this is a pocket format, with 149 pages. I’m not used to have such a short work, but this will be a good exercise.

I’m now looking for promotion option in Belgium. This will be a bit difficult, but hey… Nothing is impossible!

I already have options to meet Waterstone and an English library called Cook&Book.

I still have plenty of time to think about that. I will realease the cover soon, stay tuned.

Have a wonderful day!
