Wahey, a new sale!

Time to crack open the Asti! I've got a new sale to announce...

CHANCE OF A LIFETIME - my naughty short novella about an eccentric but delicious 20th Century marquis who lives in a crumbling stately home and who loves to spank young ladies - has been accepted by Harlequin Spice Briefs!

No more details yet, but I'm particularly thrilled about this one because Harlequin is synonymous with romance writing, and it's a kind of fulfilment of a writing lifetime dream for me. For years, I craved and craved to be published by Mills and Boon. It was my dearest wish. And now, even though it's not a M&B sale as such, it's publication by Harlequin, which is M&B's parent company! Yay for me, eh? :)

ps. and what makes this even nicer is that my writing buddy and RWA travelling companion Saskia Walker got accepted by Spice Briefs at the same time!!!

Telly: documentary about gravity
Choc/Yummy: banana
Mood: v. good
Writing: to excited
Reading: Exclusive
RSI/FMS: so so

Don't forget Portia's Promos - new stuff being added all the time!

A zillion happy hugs, Wendy. You deserve it! It's a fabulous story and I felt sure they would love it.

I simply can't wait to see the cover for the eccentric Marquis and his naughty minx in their much-loved manor! :-}

Squeeeeee, on us both getting good news! So pleased.

Congratulations... you must let me know when I can get my hands on it!!

Had some good news myself, though on a much smaller scale than yours of course - I've had a story published in Desire Magazine. So I'm a happy bunny!

Have a good weekend, xx
