The 'Naked Call'

Just in case you missed all my social media chatter, here's the link to Nicola Marsh's blog where I talk about my long and winding road to publication and exactly how that 'naked call' happened...

Sorry for being shy...

It's been sooooo looooong since I wrote anything here. I have exciting news, which you may have already heard if you're connected with me on Twitter or Facebook.

I SOLD TO HARLEQUIN MILLS & BOON!

As you can probably tell, I'm a little bit excited.

The wonderful Nicola Marsh is going to have my call story on her blog the week after next so if you fancy reading about my Naked Call (yes, I did say naked) then pop over and join me in a week or so. I'll give you a nudge nearer the time.

Hope you're enjoying the weather. I am.

That was then, this is now

Phew! Well, it's been a while since I wrote anything for my poor lonely blog. After all the excitement of the release of Her New Worst Enemy where I was in a whirl of promotional antics I finally flopped on holiday for a week with the husband and took a breath. What a ride! It was such an amazing experience to be involved in a book launch. It was a steep learning curve, but I feel like I've got much more of a handle on marketing now, which is great. 

I'm now working on my next story which is set in the South of France - quite a difference from Ellie's home city of Bristol and the lush countryside of the Cotswolds. Heat is going to play quite a large part in this story, and I'm not just talking about the sexytimes (although there will be plenty of those!)

It's wonderful to be back to writing a story again after only writing about myself for the last few weeks. I had no idea how much I was going to need to do that before the book launch. I think I actually learned quite a bit about myself in that time.

So, enough about me, how have you all been? Any gossip?

Her New Worst Enemy - available to buy!

Her New Worst Enemy is now available to buy! It's a dream come true to finally be a published author and I'm loving every second of it. 

I'm visiting with two lovely ladies today to promote the release. Stella at Ex-Libris has me as a guest and I'm giving away a copy of Her New Worst Enemy if you fancy popping along http://www.stella-exlibris.com/2013/01/guest-post-by-christy-mckellen-giveaway.html

Raven McAllan is also featuring the book and has a rather saucy excerpt for your perusal.

See you around x
