blogging elsewhere and two bits of excellent news

Current work: medical continuity
Listening to: Bach
Reading: Kandy Shepherd’s ‘Love is a four-legged word’ (great fun)

Am blogging over at I Heart Presents today, talking about fairgrounds and the background to my new Presents release, ‘Good Girl or Gold Digger?’ – if you have a fairground story to tell me (or just want to see some of my research pictures), do go over and comment!

Excellent news. Well, I have two bits. One was the news I referred to earlier this week; I wasn’t sure if it was embargoed, but as my mates Donna Alward and Fiona Harper have blogged about their great news (do go and congratulate them – I’m really pleased for them), I think it’s OK for me to do the same! The Children’s Doctor’s Special Proposal is a finalist in the Golden Quill’s Short Contemporary category, so I’m utterly, utterly thrilled (especially as it was the first time I’d entered).

And the other bit of good news is that my ed liked the second revisions, so my 44th M&B, A Christmas Knight (aka the jousting book), is going to be published in December.

I feel a bit like a dog with two tails!
