Hee hee, it's popping up all over now!

Chance has popped up at Fictionwise now too! It'll not be long before it appears at Harlequin, and I'll have achieved the dream of a lifetime... ie. become a Harlequin author at last, after waiting around 20 long years!

There's also an insanely hot and kinky excerpt from Chance here... to whet your appetite. :)

My latest toy!

It's a second hand Palm Tungsten T3, purchased from Ebay to replace the Psion 5x that recently died a horrible screen death. Needless to say, it's tempting me to play with it a lot, but I'm hoping to just explore it in little nibbles than spending days gorging on exploring its functions.

I blame Charlene Teglia who recommended this particular PDA to me on Twitter.

Speechless with delight!

Also available on the same day, to my utter delight!

HOT ON HER TAIL by Saskia Walker

I'm totally thrilled that my buddy and I have a shared release date!

Normal service will be resumed...

Am having a bit of trouble catching up with stuff at the moment, so I'm not sure when I'll be blogging again... Have lots to post inc. lovely reviews, covers, me-mes, bits of news in general, so hopefully there'll be something again shortly.

In the meantime, here's a link to one review. Done by the fabulous Wendy the Superlibrarian for IN TOO DEEP.


Have to admit, was pretty blown away when I read it. It's cool to know I'm so appreciated!

More review news shortly...

Just look at this awesome mutha! Isn't it divine? I'm thrilled to bits!

Now, those of you who've been following this blog will know that Jay Bentley, the hero, has a rather nifty goatee beard... but methinks that any time now there'll be a scene where he shaves it off! ;)

At least it's not like GOTHIC HEAT, where I had to rewrite Rafe's hairstyle completely. At least I can make Jay's cover status as clean shaven part of the plot this time!

I am smiling today!!!!

Still grappling...

... with a to do list that's far too unwieldy, and a work in progress that doesn't quite know what it wants to be.

It's tough to think up blog posts when your mind is going round in circles.
