Goodbye Orlando!

Heard just before we left on Friday (for the wettest camping trip ever) that my wonderful editor loved him too, meaning my time with Orlando is officially over.

Am trying to be glad about this. It's excellent news. So why do I feel so lost? Think I'll just post one last photo of him to cheer myself up....


(Thank you, James d'Arcy for making suffering look so sexy, and doing the tormented hero so inspiringly. Your work here is done.)
Thank you too to all the people who have so far entered my website competition-- and sorry if I haven't yet had a chance to reply to you. I promise I will soon! There's still a couple of weeks left to enter, so if you haven't done so already please get over to the website and say hello. There's no need to send a long message, just a 'hi' will do! (Having said that, it's great to get your emails and I love reading them! Thank you!!) I've got signed copies of The Italian's Defiant Mistress and other assorted goodies to give away, and one name that I pull out of a hat (note to self: find suitable hat) will be given to a character in my forthcoming book.
Talking of which, I've searched long and hard, and have eventually found the man to take on the role of hero...
Back with pictures tomorrow.

What a tease! At least give us the name of this hero!

Can't wait to see photos of your newest hero.

Hooray - you are such an author girl now!!!!!!! Oh and I can't wait to see new hero (had to whisper that so that David Boreanaz didn't get jealous - you know what fantasy crushes are like!!)

Oh yes-- I am a true professional Amanda. You know, Nothing, but NOTHING stands in the way of me and my tireless search for the perfect man.

(My children and husband will gladly testify to this....)

But thanks for all your congratulations, ladies. It makes the wrench of parting with Orlando slightly easier to bear! (sob..)
