Bits and pieces

I've just heard that Invitation To The Boss's Ball has been awarded a certificate of merit in the Short Contemporary category of the HOLT medallion! I'm so thrilled!

A full list of all the winners and finalists is here.

New stuff

Well, I popped into my blog to do a new post, and before I knew it I had accidentally applied a brand new template and ended up spending hours tweaking colours and creating a longer banner to fit. Argh. I really should have been writing instead. Having said that, I like the new look and that I can customise more in this template, so it wasn't time wasted, merely displaced.

The Bridesmaid's Secret (which, I have to say, might just be my favourite book so far) is now available online as an ebook and to order the paperback edition in both the UK and the North America. Click on the the 'browse this book' button in the sidebar if you want a sneaky peak at chapter one. (Since mine is the second book in the 2-in-1, the easiest way to read my first chapter is to go to the table of contents when the window pops up, and scroll down to the second chapter one).

But... there's actually a prologue at the start of this book, and if you want a read of that instead you can click here and visit my website for a squizz.

Holiday and surprises!

I've just come back from a much-needed holiday on the South Devon coast. Just look at these pics and you'll see why I'm so rested:

Anyway, I came home to the news that Invitation To The Boss's Ball is a finalist in the GDRWA's Booksellers' Best Award! And I found an honest-to-goodness glass award to put on my mantlepiece for my Golden Quill Award win. Made the tortoruously slow drive home on the motorway worth it!

Now I've just got to knuckle down and write the next book...
