How I came to writing

Like most authors, I've been fascinated by books since an early age. Because my parents were working (yes, I had a very modern mummy, ...

My new website

Now it there, my new website! You can visit at http://www.nickiefleming.be and let me know what you think of it.

Remember, I did everything myself. I'm not very technical and don't know a thing about building websites. But SimpleSite made it rather easy. Of course, you have to work with the templates they offer but hey, that's not so important.

What counts for me is that I can keep the site up-to-date myself and add new books as they are published.

Creating a website

Perhaps some of you have wondered why I don't have a website?

Well, I had one (www.nickiefleming.com) but alas, I don't know a thing about building a website. So I had to depend on others to do it for me. My first webmaster, Sandra, got ill and could not do it anymore. Then I have Dave, but heaven knows where he's off to. I could not make any changes to the site he created, and then the domain name came up for renewal.... I decided to just leave it and then began my blogs.

But now that another novel is in the works, I thought the time had come to get another website. I found a site which allows you to build your own website and is fairly easy to use.

I'm busy making the site nice and practical, but of course it will take some time. I still have to figure some things out, as I'm not very technical (!).

But I'll be in full control of everything and that's most important to me. I'll keep you posted!

Working on a new novel

Now that the manuscript of The Black Coach is off to the publisher, I have time (and the willingness) to begin a new novel.

Lately, I'm very much interested in gothic romance, so the new book will be along that line too. The working title will be The House (subject to change). I've more or less a plot line developed, but I don't want to plan too much.

I cannot work that way. I always start with just an idea, and then let it grow while writing. When the flow is right, the book almost writes itself, I've often found.

Loosely, the story will be about a young (American) woman who marries an English gentleman who takes her to his home in Cornwall. There, at his mansion, all kind of strange things happen, and it's up to the heroine to find out what.
