Holiday disaster

We had a lovely holiday in the Canary Islands with our grandson – perfect weather – perfect location – until two days before we were due to come home when our apartment was broken in to.

It’s not nice when you come back after a meal and a pleasant walk and discover that all your cupboards and drawers have been turned over. Our real valuables – like passports and money – were in a safe, but whoever broke in took a camera – with all our wonderful holidays snaps which we were going to put on DVD for our grandson to show his mum and dad – a mobile phone, a watch, sunglasses, and an e-reader (which always goes on holiday with us, it saves carrying so many books around)

It was a disappointing end to the holiday and has caused no end of a nuisance. Nevertheless it was an experience that might find its way into a book one day. Heroine’s place is broken in to, hero to the rescue, sort of thing.

Blog on i-heart presents

We managed to get away on a last minute holiday with our grandson – what an event that was – more tomorrow.

Meanwhile I’m blogging over on I-heart presents today about how I came up with the idea for The Billionaire’s Blackmail Bargain which – dare I repeat it? is on sale in the UK in September. So if you’d care to pop over and take a look…

I’m still feeling empty with Zarek and Molly gone. I finally decided to keep the name Molly – by the time I’d finished writing her story she became Molly. So all that angst was for nothing. Thank you again to everyone who commented on the name.

We’re having our exuberant twelve year old grandson for the rest of his school holidays so we’ll be here, there and everywhere and I probably won’t have the time or the energy for blogging.

And hopefully by the time he goes back to school my editor will have read my book.

It's gone!

Molly & Zarek’s story has made its way to my editor. Hurrah! Now all I have to do is sit back and wait!

I love the feeling when a book is finished, it’s almost as exciting as starting one. What will my editor think? Will she love it or hate it? Will I have many revisions? How long will it take for her to read it?

On the other hand I feel empty. I like sitting at my desk. I like creating stories. I much prefer it to housework! But there are jobs to be done that I’ve neglected. My study to tidy for one thing. I seem to gather so much research stuff when I’m writing, far more than I ever use.

Is everyone the same?

September book

My September book THE BILLIONAIRE’S BLACKMAIL BARGAIN is available from the Mills and Boon website now – a whole month before it hits the shops!

It’s Cade and Simone’s story, set in a stunning location in Australia’s Whitsundays. Simone was unknowingly instrumental in Cade losing his inheritance – and now he’s back in her life and intent on revenge!

Don’t you just love revenge stories?

If you fancy your chances of winning a signed copy of this book then why not enter the contest currently running on my website? All you have to do is email me and let me know your favourite setting for a Modern/Presents/Sexy story. It might be a major city, an island, a country – the choice is yours. The winner will be picked at random at the end of August so you still have plenty of time.

Incidentally one country is already an out and out winner. I’m not saying which it is yet because it could easily be overtaken – I’ll let you know when the contest closes.

Greek book

Fifty two thousand words and finished – the first draft that is.

I’ve added and taken away in various places from notes I’d already made, but I’ve deliberately not read the whole book through. I want to do that with a fresh eye. So I shall leave it until after the weekend. Probably Tuesday as I’m having my hair done on Monday.

It’s taken me three months to write this book so a lot of what I’ve written I haven’t seen for a long time. I’m actually really looking forward to reading it. All I hope is that I don’t come across any nasty surprises.
The above photos are of Zarek when Molly met him, and then with his hair cut short for the wedding.
(Will someone please tell me how I can put the photos in the places that I want them?)
