I’m off to the Romantic Novelists’ Association conference today. It is always a lovely event, catching up with writing friends and meeting new ones. I will never forget the part the RNA New Writers’ Scheme played in my path to publication. I’m looking forward to the event, but I will have to be careful due to my recent operation. Thanks in advance to Janice Preston and Lynn Forth for carrying my case and ferrying me to the venue.
My most exciting news is that I’ve signed a new contract with Choc Lit for my second novel, working title Rock, Paper, Scissors. It is set in the same seaside town (Borteen) as my debut novel The Girl on the Beach and features some of the same characters too. I will have my editorial report on this new one over the summer and the book should be published in early 2018. Yippee.
The Girl on the Beach was included in a recent Kobo UK debut novel promotion and reached No 2 in their romantic suspense chart for the second time since it has been published. Thank you to everyone who has bought it. Could I be cheeky? If you have read and enjoyed my work, please post a short review for me on the site where you bought it. I hate asking, but it does make a difference to rankings.
I’ll report back on my time at the conference next week. The first session I’m going to is called “Write Unforgettable Sex Scenes”!!!!!!!
