Getting There!

We have been to the sea house today. It was lovely to get away from the chaos the new kitchen has created! Dust everywhere and piles of stuff in all the rooms. It amazes me how much stuff comes out of kitchen cupboards. Probably half of it is rubbish, but you never want to part with it just in case!

The garden at the sea house was beautiful. All the bushes are flowering and it is a riot of colour. sitting in the sunroom reading through some proofs was relaxing and nice, and the sun even came out for a while! We had fish and chips and then went for a walk along the front later.

I just discovered that Captive of the Harem is being re-issued in a collection, which was a lovely surprise. My new book will be out in HB in June I think, so probably pb in August. Not sure exactly, but it won't be long! Love to you all.

Red Roses For Authors/ Reviews is going very well.

Oh dear!

The house is about to be turned upside down as the new kitchen fitters move in next week. I am looking forward to my new kitchen, but I hate having everything all over the place in that area. My study is always overflowing with stuff, but I like everything in the kitchen to be where it should be. At the moment we are putting things in bags and boxes and I am certain we shall never find anything afterwards!

I have put up the first author review on Red Roses For Authors/Reviews today. It is a new feature and I shall introduce other new features as time goes by to keep the site fresh and exciting. We have been up for two months today and so far the figures are about level but we are now findable on google, which we weren't for the first month. Now we have several pages of mentions and one of my writing friends told me people she knows are talking about us, so I think it is going to be a success. I hope so because my reviewers really love books and we are there to help authors, especially new ones - though we like having the successful ones too.

Well, I must go now and see what other jobs want doing. Next week I shall escape up here as much as I can to get out of the way!
