It’s Friiiidaaaaay! What a week. I’ve been flat out with my office job (only another 11 weeks left, but who’s counting?) and haven’t had a chance to catch my breath yet. I even cleaned the house late last night so I’d have a clear run at today 😂 although I still have shopping and other errands to catch up on before I can crack open the laptop. 

In writing news, I’ve only a few scenes left to write for Torn. Woohoo! It’ll be straight into editing mode then, so I need to shop for editing fuel (aka as tea and biscuits). What’s your editing fuel? 

Hope you’re having a good Friday so far!

It’s Profess Your Love Day, so I’m inviting you to share what or who has your love this Wednesday. 💜💙❤️

I’ll profess love for my parents who are celebrating an impressive 52 years of wedded bliss today. They’re my champions, and without their unending support, I don’t know where I’d be. Happy Anniversary, Ma & Pa Embleton! 

I also want to shout out my love for my #instafam 💜
I’m not tagging anyone, because that leads to max level anxiety for fear of leaving someone out accidentally, but you know who you are!! 

What about you? Who or what do you want to declare love for today?

#tuesdaytruths 🤔

How do you select the names of your characters? 

Most of the time, I already have a name in mind when I create a character. Sometimes, if I’m really stuck, I’ll read through baby name lists online and choose that way. I also keep a list of names that catch my eye that I’d like to use at some point in the future, so I have those for back up too. I’ve seen the name generators online, but I think they’re more for high fantasy names, and they tend to break one of my rules; if I can’t pronounce the name in my head, I ain’t gonna torture my readers by using it in my WIP. No Ghrttydx or Aethlegffvys  in my books, thanks very much 😂

What about you? How do you choose names?

It’s a stunning bank holiday Monday here, and I’ve snuck in a little writing and editing despite my promise to have a laptop free day 😆 It’s a shame to be indoors in such sunny weather, but inspiration struck and I had to obey the call. The first draft of Torn is almost done, but I have a few scenes slow to develop which is where editing helps. I go back to the beginning and often find those stubborn scenes fall into place a lot quicker. I’ve already found a little clarity, and now that’s achieved, I think I’ll treat myself to a glass of fermented grape juice in the sunshine. ☀️ 🍷 

Hope you’re revelling in a glorious bank holiday Monday too!

It’s #selfpromotesunday and, look! The Turning Moon series is now on Kindle Unlimited! 🎉😁

For a limited time, KU subscribers can dive into this #paranormal  #fantasy series featuring wiley werewolves, feisty females, hunky heroes and lots of vile villains. 

✨“I’m a sucker for a “will they or won’t they” romance, and Bound is that and so much more! This story is well written with just the right amount of suspense and intrigue, all with a realistic backdrop of modern day werewolf society. A great read!”

✨”Julie Embleton certainly knows how to spin a love story that not only captures your heart; but your imagination as well. Michael was a secondary character in Bound. He has evolved into one hunk of a main character in Released. He has so many layers covering all those muscles that I know he has. Released is a very intricate study of characters and behavior, human and otherwise.”

✨”What I love about this trilogy is the different feel of each book, matching the change of central character. Tori's vibrant past clashes with her love for her friend and the looming romance with a wolf, but Embleton throws twist after twist at the reader, confounding expectation. Haunted indeed.”

I’m late out to play this #caturday as I’ve been adulting all day 🙄 Wasted ages visiting hardware stores to get a replacement bulb for strip lighting only to be told I’ll have to hunt it down online 😡Such a waste of time. But, now all the laundry, gardening, window-washing, shopping and cleaning is done, it’s time to retreat to the writing cave and immerse myself in Torn. I think younger me would have been horrified to hear that older me thinks there’s nothing better than a Saturday night in, writing until the wee small hours with nothing more potent than tea and chocolate to hand. Sorry to be such a disappointment, younger Julie 😂
