Glass Houses

Glasshouse is out!

Thank you if you have read it, bought it in any form, reviewed it, or rated it!

Its title works literally and metaphorically, so let’s play with that for a bit.

Glasshouses – or greenhouses if you prefer – are like my writing career. Or vice versa. I put special things in there to grow, although ivy and a variety of other wild plants break in through the cracks and from underground. The special things are protected and nurtured. I leave the door open if the weather is too hot, and for insects to buzz in and do their things. Some of the special things are eventually planted outside in the hopes that they’ll thrive.

But the glasshouse, by necessity, is itself fragile. It’s also almost invisible, paradoxically because it is almost transparent.

When I first watched the amazing book trailer that my editor, Lee Dickinson, made for it, I was simultaneously excited, and overwhelmed by imposter syndrome.

The online launch was great – you can view it on my Facebook Page – and in it, I ran a competition; one of the prizes was getting to name a character in my WIP (within parameters), and so the seed of James Theodore Court was planted. He’ll appear in #Underrated, the third standalone novel in the series I’m now calling The Glasshouse Series.

I’m very much enjoying writing it, although my internet search history looks dodgy when taken out of context! Here’s hoping for a late summer bloom…

When Morwenna Blackwood was six years old, she got told off for filling a school exercise book with an endless story when she should have been listening to the teacher/eating her tea/colouring with her friends. The story was about a frog. It never did end; and Morwenna never looked back. Born and raised in Devon, Morwenna suffered from severe OCD and depression, and spent her childhood and teens in libraries. She travelled about for a decade before returning to Devon. She now has an MA in Creative Writing from the University of Exeter, and lives with her husband, son and three cats in a cottage that Bilbo Baggins would be proud of. Morwenna is the author of bestselling noir psychological thrillers, The (D)Evolution of Us, and Glasshouse, published by #darkstroke. She has just submitted her third novel, Underrated, and the fourth is in progress. When she is not writing, Morwenna works for an animal rescue charity, or can be found down by the sea. She often thinks about that frog.
