Compos Mentis…Somewhat

I say somewhat because usually, there are about two other people living in my head but when writing, it can get pretty crowded up there. Right now, in this moment, it’s just the usual residents, so things are normal….normal for Olivia that is. Writing can drive one mad. Sometimes you’re so eager to wrap up a book to ease the mental strain and before you know it, more stories are spilling out of your brain and your fingers get itchy for a pen or keyboard…sigh.

So, post-schizophrenic phase is awesome! I feel unburdened-like a new human being and it feels so, so good to have a break. I bought about 18 paperbacks the other day to dig into; don’t know how many of them I will get to inhale before the writing bug sinks its teeth into me but hey, just having them makes me delirious! I got to spend a couple days being busy doing absolutely nothing, ahhhhhh…it felt like heaven. And even had a chance to do some baking, something I have not done in a long time.

Currently I’m trying to finish Sherlock Holmes and the Lyme Regis Legacy and it’s become a challenge trying to put a dent in Stephen King’s doorstopper, Under the Dome; when a book includes a list of characters, you have a pretty good idea what you’re in for. But the story is too good to let go.

In October I’ll be running a Goodreads giveaway for The Tourist, I will announce the date in a later post.

“A sexy island suspense novella"

While vacationing in Barbados, entrepreneur Jake Evans, invited the beautiful Sabina James to indulge in a night of passion. But the invitation inadvertently puts her life in danger. Jake has a coveted treasure, a vengeful relative will stop at nothing to obtain. A smoking feud catches fire and both men are determined that when the smoke clears; only one of them will be left standing.
**This novella is a standalone work with no cliff hangers and is for 18+ readers.

The Tourist can be pre-ordered at the following ebook retailers and paperbacks will also be available. The official release date is October 11th 2015.

And before I go, a photo from my episode of baking-  Eggless Red Velvet Cupcake.

That's all for now! Until....
