News for September!

I’ve decided blogging and school holidays don’t mix very well. But the Harper chicks are slowing trickling back to school this week and it’s high time I reappeared in cyber space!

I have two good bits of news!

First of all – and I have had to keep quiet about this for months – I can announce that the Sony Reader eBook launches in the UK on Thursday and a copy of my Feb 08 book, English Lord, Ordinary Lady is going to be pre-loaded on every one sold in the UK! How cool is that? I’m very excited.

Secondly, I have a new cover!!! This is the North American cover for my November release Christmas Wishes, Mistletoe Kisses. Isn’t it lovely? And here’s the blurb, just because I love it:

Three Christmas wishes…

1. A new life in the country:

It’s taken all of Louise Thornton’s courage to start again with her young son. This will be a different life, one away from the paparazzi – and her cheating celebrity husband!

2. Someone to help decorate the Christmas tree:

Louise is determined to make this Christmas perfect for her son. But it’s not until she meets meltingly attractive landscape architect Ben Oliver that she starts to sparkle again.

3. A proposal under the mistletoe?

Single dad Ben puts his daughter first. But when he catches Louise under the mistletoe, Ben realises only he can make Louise’s wishes come true…

You are on the Sony Reader? How cool is that?
Am I allowed to be incredibly envious? I almost, ALMOST ordered one as a birthday present. To myself.
Many congratulations.

Congratulations on the Sony Reader deal, Fiona -- that's amazing! And I love the cover: am feeling Christmassy just looking at it. The story sounds great.

Oooo the Sony Reader is number 19 on Vogue's 'Don't Miss List'. Which means YOU are no 19 on Vogue's 'Don't Miss List'!! How cool are you? *bows down in appreciation*

Excellent news. That's incredibly cool.

And your blurb is as fab as the front cover. That's one of my October treat list sorted, then :o) [Thinks to self: must try to ignore the fact there is chocolate called Mistletoe Kisses - saw it at the train station today...]
