A Brief Respite.

So the Tempted by Trouble Blog Tour is finally over and sanity can now resume!

For those who have never done a Blog Tour before... DON'T DO IT! Okay, I'm joking (kind of). It is an enormous time-suck, not just with the writing of the guest spots and the answering of the interview questions, but also with the need to respond to the people kind enough to leave a comment. I got about a quarter of my usual writing done. However, I can't blame it all on the tour itself, because it was my own reaction to it that caused the biggest time-suck - I've never had a book published before, I've never been interviewed before and I've never been able to click on someone elses website and see my own ugly mug staring back at me. And I've certainly never been able to spend hours at a time watching my Amazon ranking go up and down. My poor little head was spinning with the wonder of it all!

But it was completely worth it. I have 'met' some lovely people on the tour, blog hosts and readers alike, and I want to thank everyone who commented, supported, tweeted... Thank you all you lovely, lovely people. The Rafflecopter has also selected its random winner from all the entries - congratulations Karen Haas!

Before I toodle off, I am happy to say that a couple of weeks ago I was offered a new four-book contract with Harlequin Mills & Boon Modern/Presents. I bet you can't guess what my response was. (Hint, my poor ed is probably still suffering from ruptured eardrums).

One final thing... I also have some other 'news' that I will be announcing very soon (no, I'm not pregnant).

And on that bombshell,

Take care all xxx

  1. Congrats, on both your tour being over (I know the put your feet up and stock up with copious amounts of alcohol feeling) but also on the 4 book contract! Can't wait to read the new partial.

    Oh, and a cliff hanger for more to come. Sneaky. :)
