So that’s it. The paperback and ebook versions of my latest novel Fulfilment have now launched. Details can be found in my previous post here. It’s been a crazily busy week or so online with all the launch events and publicity and I’ve been so heartened by all the lovely positive comments and support from the online community of writers, readers and of course friends and family. Thank you all.
And I also need to say a huge thank you to Donna Gowland for making the book trailer video to publicise my series of novels set on the Scottish island of Skye – of which Fulfilment is the third and final part. Isn’t it gorgeous?
And now it’s on to something new. I’ve got lots of ideas for the next novel and am looking forward to exploring/developing some of them. I’m thinking maybe a series of contemporary romances set in in the Scottish Borders – with each book about a different couple – but all set in the same community so readers can keep in touch with characters from previous books as the series develops. Can’t wait to get started on inventing a village/town and setting up a cast of characters …
I’d be interested to have your feedback on whether you like reading a series or do you prefer standalone novels? And what do you think of the video?

The video is lovely and makes me want to visit the Isle of Skye. I enjoy a series and like your idea of using the same place but different characters. I always enjoy that type of story. It’s always exciting to start something new, isn’t it!
Skye is a beautiful place, Darlene. I’m glad you like the idea of a series. Yes, it is exciting to start a new project 🙂
The trailer is lovely, Anne. Your friend is very talented. anne S
I like Kerry Greenwood’s Phryne Fisher stories, set in mid-1920s Melbourne. Stand alone stories but the characters develop as the stories move along. Similarly I love Lindsey Davis’ Falco novels (mostly) set in Ancient Rome. I love the settings and hate to leave the characters behind when I close the book. You have the universe and the loved characters Maybe you can introduce a new couple for each story, or develop an already known character for each story?
Yes, that’s what I’m meaning to do – new main characters for each story. Thanks, Mary. 🙂
