I’ve spent a month in Thailand and returned inspired for the next chapter in Lek Jaipong’s life!
Writing book number two was always going to be a challenge. Everywhere I read, and I read a LOT about new authors, indie authors, published authors …. It screams at me the fact that the second novel can be the hardest. I’m beginning to realise this is true.
But … back to my time in Thailand first!
What prompted this trip?
So you all know now that The Thai Wife was released in June this year. This was a story that had rumbled around in my head for a long time – maybe ten years – so when it came out (some writers call this the vomit draft!) it purged onto my laptop at lightning speed! That first draft is a bit of blur, as it rushed from my head to my fingers onto the key board and BANG! it was there! That first draft was so easy.
