HER SWEETEST DOWNFALL
At the height of the London Blitz, Viola Craft, a sexually repressed young woman is trapped in a loveless marriage to her God fearing husband Vernon. She spends her days working in her mother’s dress shop while Vernon pulls the dead from the rubble with his rescue crew.
Their marriage is turbulent and Viola feels pressured to bear a child. After failed attempts, Vernon believes she’s barren and alienates himself from their marriage.
One night during an air raid, she meets alluring German born Kristoff Richter. They make an in-stant connection. He’s young, good looking and emphatic. They embark on an illicit affair that leads to tragic consequences.
As I read other people’s 2015 reflections, I struggle to put mine together. Writing wise, it was pretty slow. I sold Unspoken (which was later renamed to Her Sweetest Downfall) and was published by Blue Tulip Publishing in April 2015. It is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
As for the rest of the year, there was the usual family and work stuff, but I vowed to dedicate some time in promoting my works. I improved my website and worked hard on adding followers to my Facebook page.
For the later half of 2015, I spent a lot of time and money (Ssshh!) into promotion. While others failed, some succeeded.
Her Sweetest Downfall saw its lowest Amazon rank of #27,811 and #47 in 20th century historical romance. I was very excited in seeing those results.
I started new projects and began working on a WIP called Grey Dawn. I was keen to write another historical fiction but after poor responses and sales, I decided to turn it into a speculative fiction, drawing some ideas from previous works into one.
2015 also marks the year I finished and sold my next release Rogue Agent to Limitless Publishing. I am excited to work with this new publisher and see where our new relationship takes us. Rogue Agent is scheduled for release on March 15 2016. I’m yet to receive my cover, but when I do, I’ll post it.
It appears 2015 was a better year than 2014 (You can read my 2014 reflection here), and I look forward to seeing what 2016 brings. I’ve never been one for new years resolutions but I have a few for this year:
- Finish Grey Dawn
- Obtain an agent
- Make Rogue Agent a success
- Work harder in promotion
- Connect with readers
- Network with other authors
I want to thank everyone for their support and friendship during the year. I’ve definitely increased my writer friends tenfold and I am very grateful to have met them. I joined a street team (S.A.S.S) who has helped me so much and I owe them everything.
What are your new years resolutions? Comment below.
Thank you Sharon for the opportunity 🙂 You can read my guest post here.

It’s been a little while since I’ve done an update on what’s happening in my world of writing. There’s a lot going which is fabulous and I really hope 2015 is my year!
As I’ve posted before, Edge of Tomorrow will be released next month by Soul Mate Publishing. It’s currently in the second round of edits and I hope I get this back from my editor soon so I can finalize it and get the book prepared for release day!
I haven’t mentioned anything yet, however I am in talks of doing a book signing for To Lean on Falling Men with a local book store Blue House Books in my area next month. Blue House Books does amazing things for the community and an excellent cause to be involved in. I am petrified by the thought of doing a signing but very excited to meet everyone. I’ve always wanted to do a signing. I’ll keep everyone updated on the official date once I get copies of the book from my publisher.
And lastly, my WW2 HF Unspoken has been finally sold! As some of you may know, writing this novel was one of the toughest and biggest challenges for me and it’s truly been a labour of love and tears.
After 12 months of writing, 3 months of betas and 2 months of submitting, Unspoken has been sold to Blue Tulip Publishing. I signed the contract today and sent all my other little bits off, so I’m very excited to get the ball rolling.
So far, 2015 is looking to be an exciting and fulfilling year for my writing. I hope things get bigger and better from here on!
