Hard to believe!

It's hard to believe, but for this moment at least, TWICE THE PLEASURE is in the Harlequin Top Ten Bestselling Ebooks!

Now this is gobsmackingly thrilling to start with, but when I look at some of the other names in the same top ten, it becomes totally surreal...

Penny Jordan, Catherine George, Madeleine Ker... these are authors I was reading twenty years ago and more when I was first trying to write for Mills & Boon *and* before I even dreamed I could be an author, and was just reading Mills & Boons because I loved reading them.

If anyone had told me then that one day I'd be in a top seller list with such huge romance names, I'd have told them they were ****ing mental! LOL!

Eating: cheap chocolate biscuits
Watching: Churchill's Bodyguard
Reading: Delicious
Writing: er... haven't started yet
Feeling: rather chuffed

Wow - that's one thrilling snapshot--Top Ten at Harlequin. I'm grinning from ear to ear with excitement for you - and am now figuring out how to download it onto my iPhone. Me and technology . . . such a Luddite here.

A well deserved placement, too. Many congratulations!

Congratulations! Bet you're well chuffed! And you definitely deserve to be up there, you should believe people when they tell you you're fab ;)

Thanks, guys! You're the best... it's a lovely feeling to be in that top ten. Even if only briefly.

I was hanging in there at no.10 last time I looked, but may have slipped from the rankings now.
