Gothic Heat has left the building!

It's gone! Clad in its folder, its rubberbands and its heavy duty poly posting bag, it's on its way to my agent to see what she thinks of it, and thence, when she's read it, to my editor...

Gosh, has this been a ride and a half! I've never done a book from a standing start of 'maybe I could do a sequel...' before. From nothing, from no outline, no idea, no characters, no nothing... And part of the time, I thought I'd made a huge mistake, agreeing to this, but now I feel okay because I think it's all right, although obviously no great work of dazzling literary genius or anything. But I think it's a reasonable story with some okay bits in it, and hopefully, all the folk who liked Gothic Blue will like it. Even though there's precious little Andre in it...

I think I must give a shout out to Romance Diva Gwen Hayes in connection with Gothic Heat... she did a super review of Gothic Blue, many months ago, in which she said the only thing she'd like to have seen more of in it was the evil sorceress, Isidora. And that's what gave me the idea for the Gothic Heat! So Gwen, take a bow...

I am thrilled you finished it. Time to sit back and sip some bubbly. Thanks so much for mentioning me...but really it was all your wonderful character that did the inspiring. I can't wait to read it.
Love, Gwen Hayes :)
