really, really on a roll

Current work: nonfic
Listening to: Bach
Reading: various research stuff

So there I was, thinking (which invariably means displacement activity) and I came across a newspaper cutting in the Evening News. About Heroes, Villains and Victims of Norwich. And lovely Derek James says that hundreds (note that word – hundreds – that’s so humbling and thrilling at the same time) of people entered the local paper’s competition to win my new book.

And then the Evening News rang me (while I was in the middle of rewriting my RNA talk about local history for romance novelists) to speak about romance and the RNA award and my latest local history books. Serendipity or what? There may be new photographs involved (ah, so there WAS a good reason for me to tidy my office this week). But am doing a little happy wiggle here.

This week is turning out to be a FANTASTIC week. And I appreciate every second of it.

Great stuff. I can well belive all those hundreds of entrants, too.

Looking forward to your talk

Melissa - thanks.

Jenny - thanks - and I hope you enjoy it as much as I've enjoyed hearing you talk about Heyer :o)
