I’m sorry to have to announce that Sweet Encore, the fourth book in the Tout series, will not be published next month as planned.
I’m still some way off the point of ‘hanging the chandeliers’ as I call adding the final descriptive layer that I know readers love.
I really hate letting people down but I'm not the sort of writer who can bang out more than one book a year, and I was foolish to think that I could.
Quality control is very important to me and because of this, I’ve taken the decision to delay publication until next summer.
I feel very bad about this as I know that many of you have pre-ordered the book and were looking forward to it as holiday reading.
In addition, I’d like to apologize to those of you who’ve sent me emails recently and not had replies.
I love reading your feedback and lovely messages and I do my best to answer them all, but recently the back log has become rather out of control.
So I’m going to disappear for a while – and yes, drop off Twitter too – to concentrate on writing. I will be back but not for a while.
Sincere apologies, KW.
