Writing hours in June 2015

sun-151763_640It’s the beginning of July, which means three things:

1. I’m leaving for my vacation / writers’ & readers’ conference in New Orleans next week. Yay!

2. There’s a heat wave in Germany. Right now, we’re having 102 degrees (39 degrees Celsius). Probably a good preparation for New Orleans, right?

3. It’s time to update my blog with my monthly working hours. So here they are.

In June, I worked mainly on the translation of Next of Kin. The English version has been published last week, and I’m pretty happy with the feedback mails I’ve been getting. Thanks to everyone who sent me an e-mail or wrote a review! I truly appreciate it.

I’m also 45,000 words into Just Physical, my new contemporary romance (which will be novel # 3 in the Hollywood series). I really like these characters!

Okay, let’s take a look at the numbers:

With all the traveling, sightseeing, and attending the conference this month, I won’t have that much time to write, but I’m still hoping to end up with a total of 70,000-75,000 words of Just Physical by the end of July.

By the way, if you want to see some photos of my adventures in New Orleans, check out my Facebook page. I’ll share photos there.

Have a great July!

  1. It’s amazing how many hours you spend writing. The average person works 160 hours / month and complains, writers put in so many more hours and are happy about it

  2. Just wanted to say I recently discovered you I am fairly new to my own discovery/admitting and have been devouring FF fic and I have to say you are without a doubt my favorite writer in this genre. I love how rounded your characters where in the Portland Police series. I am looking forward to reading your entire library!
