Book Review: Isle of Sensuality by Aimee Duffy

Isle of SensualityIsle of Sensuality by Aimée Duffy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a lovely, heart-warming (and steamy!) story. From page one Aimee Duffy has you hooked with real, genuine characters you’ll warm to instantly. This love story is full of passion, emotion and conflict, with both characters having their own personal issues threatening to come between the couple. I won’t say anymore for fear of spoiling the story, but would highly recommend this as a perfect novel to curl up and escape into for a few hours. If you enjoy a good romance then this is the book for you, as it reminds us why we fall in love.

Hello, 30,000!!

I am delighted to announce that I have just passed the 30k mark in my NaNoWriMo novel. I’m still not any further forward with choosing a title for it (I have played around with a few, but none seem to quite fit).

I hit a stumbling block earlier. At around 28k, I was stuck on a sub-plot and couldn’t move forward until it was resolved. I’d introduced a character quite early on, who showed real potential. Then, suddenly, I found I didn’t really know what to do with him. How could one powerful character appear out of nowhere and then deflate like a punctured balloon? He had no direction, no mission. Because the mission I initially had planned for him didn’t suit. It didn’t work. So I sat down, and I thought, and I Googled for some inspiration, and I started working out the sub-plot. It really helped, because now he has direction again, and he has shown me a different side to his character.

On the plus side, I have managed to come up with blurb of sorts, just to give an idea of what the story is about.

This is the beauty of NaNoWriMo, especially if you don’t have the time to do any planning; you just launch yourself into the story and have to see where it goes. There are obstacles, there are brick walls. Yet there are also some pleasant surprises, and I think I have just hurdled that wall.

And that’s me for another day, totally knackered and ready to crash, but leaving you with the outline below as a little taster 🙂

Imagine a concept where your emotions are so powerful, they can open a gateway to another world? A portal to another time zone. Not time travel, but just another place in time where you can meet your soul partner to show you the way, the way to find your true self? The gateway to happiness and to the love of your life…
