Well, the first round of edits for Heart of the Valley is complete and the next will be here any day. In the meantime, I’m working on my next book, which I’ve christened Where Hope Lies. Not sure if that title will stay but it’ll do for the moment, and WHL is a nice easy acronym to use in emails when I’m chatting with my writing buddies. Not as good as HotV, mind. That one was a beauty!
Heart of the Valley is scheduled for release in May 2012. No sign of a cover yet but I promise to post it as soon as I get the go ahead. Can’t wait to see what it’s like. It’s always a huge buzz to see a new cover.
On the blog touring front, today I’m a guest on Rachael Johns’ Theory on Thursday segment, talking about writing craft and also giving away a signed copy of Promises. So if you want to be in the contest, click on over to Rachael’s blog, discover the answer to the simple question I’ve posed and leave it in the comments. Entries close at midnight Sunday, 20th November 2011. Australian addresses only, sorry.
While you’re there, check out Rachael’s debut release, One Perfect Night, available in December from Carina Press. I have a preview copy of this book and I can honestly say it’s fabulous. A great romantic romp from a wonderful new Australian writer.
If you happen to be wandering down Beaumont Street, Hamilton, NSW on Sunday and are wondering where all that laughter is coming from, it’s probably all the attendees at the Australian Romance Readers Association lunch. A great group of local readers and writers are coming along so it should be a fun day. We’ll be at Cafe de Beaumont from 11am. Please feel free to stop by and say hello. I promise you we’re all very friendly!
And last but not least, I’m very excited to announce that I have some fabulous Australian writers booked for Friday Feast guest appearances over coming weeks, including best-selling historical author Anna Campbell, and gorgeous Harlequin Desire author and website designer Paula Roe. Can’t wait to see their feasts!
