Back to Business

Have been so taken up by my role as founder member of Scrubbers Anonymous that I completely forgot to mention the exciting fact that I have been invited to join the rather dazzling list of writers over at the Harlequin Presents Authors' site. Even more excitingly, I am this month's featured author, which is great because a) when I wrote my piece for it I'd just got back from London, so had something glamorous to write about and didn't have to obsess about cleaning, and b) this month sees the American release of The Italian's Defiant Mistress, so the timing is perfect. Anyway, if you've arrived at this blog via a link from the site, a big hello and thank you for visiting!


On the current book front.... I'm now at the stage where the ideas are piling up crazily in my head and I just have to be patient and tell the story until I can get to the places where they slot in. It's not easy. Especially when I seem to be plagued by the presence of a constant stream of British Gas men at the moment, all searching for the elusive solution to the leaking pipes. The search seems to involve a lot of tea-drinking and much important typing on laptops in fab little zip-up cases.


I find this last bit particularly annoying, as thanks to the incessant interruption, I'm doing hardly any typing at all.

Hooray for you.
I did want to say that you should consider changing your profile in Blogger. You are no longer a newly-signed author waiting for her first book to appear. But a PUBLISHED author whose book has been well-received and who is under a multi-book contract...
Just a small point.
Dashboard top right -- edit profile, scroll down to about me...

Is Mr Gas still there? Poor you!Nipping over to Harlequin right now and that's not just so I can ignore the fact that although the shopping has been delivered, it still needs putting away!

Finally! It's here!! Guess what folks are getting for Christmas...if I can wait that long before passing the books around.

Good point Michelle-- I'll get to it this weekend, along with the website update I've been intending to do for ages. I've been told that Saturday night is rugby night, so that'll keep me occupied while my sitting room is awash with testosterone.

I tried to bribe this week's delivery man into putting my shopping away too, Rachel but oddly enough he managed to resist. Mind you, the British Gas men are so at home here these days I see no reason why they shouldn't do it...

Eva-- I'm sure your lovely husband will be thrilled...!!

Yay for you! Good news.

I second what Michelle says.

Hope the workmen sort things out soon.
