Moondancing Blog Tour!

Thanks to the lovely Lucy Felthouse of Writer Marketing Services (http://www.writermarketing.co.uk)  a blog tour is happening for Moondancing this week. Here are the venues where Molly and Jake are strutting their stuff, and this book also has a central character with one green eye and one blue, as a tribute to my hero, David Bowie. I thought Mr Bowie would be around much longer than this; his music was the soundtrack to my early writing years. The world has lost a major talent and an elegant role model  –  please feel free to drop in...

Great Romaniac News!

That Friday Feeling.

  Alcohol with your name already plastered all over it – how cool is that? The photo of the inspiring lager was sent to me by lovely fellow-Romaniac Vanessa Savage who was ACTUALLY DRINKING IT at the time. Sad to be missing the RNA party this year but hope there will be lots of drinking fun (and the eating of strange nibbly things) for the Romaniacs plus all the other RNA guests at the winter bash in London next week. Anyway, just gearing up for some serious editing, in between school work, visiting poorly friend and aged in-laws...

Back On Track

Back On Track

    There comes a time in every writer’s life – well, lots of times, actually – when your confidence is at rock bottom and the idea of ever getting another book sold is a distant dream. And that’s the moment when you crave chocolate very badly but you also desperately want someone to like what you’ve written. My story, Naked in the Rain, was intended to be a novella but decided it had had enough. Good job really, or it would never have fitted the word count. Going to Exeter with the other Exeter Story...

Please Release Me – Splash!

Please Release Me – Splash!

  Today I’m helping to celebrate, with a big SPLASH, Rhoda Baxter’s fabulous new book Please Release Me. This post is all about being stuck on the WIP, in a big way. Now, at the school where I work, I’m in charge of rattling out the poems. This isn’t a compliment – it’s just that when anyone leaves, someone has to be in charge of writing a truly awful bit of doggerel for the assembly with the flowers. gifts, tears ets. So in honour of Rhoda, here’s today’s bit of awfulness: Stuck The...

New Chapter

I spent the weekend in the entertaining company of Mandy James at the York Festival of Writing – road trip, escaped deer on motorway, lots of wine, agent one-to-ones, great food, indigestion, fan-girling, discovering great new authors (Jo Cannon, Nicci Gerrard), etc etc. Totally wiped out now, and confused by conflicting advice. Writing the last book – see below – seemed easy compared to putting a toe in the water of psychological thrillers. Watch this space for the (loosely categorised) poem about being stuck which will be...

Moonflower’s Exotic Setting by Leigh Archer (@leigharcherbook) #romance

I chose Moonflower’s setting for purely selfish reasons. It is the area of the Western Cape, almost at the southern-most tip of Africa, where I grew up. It is also one of the most beautiful places on earth in my totally unbiased opinion! Labour’s End, the private game farm on which Sophie takes up a position as head conservationist, is set in one of the few remaining areas of renosterveld – one of the major plant communities and vegetation types in the Cape Floral Kingdom. The word, Renosterveld, translated from Afrikaans, means...

British Weather by JoAnne Kenrick (@joannekenrick) #romance #contemporary

It’s no joke. The weather in Britain is temperamental and bipolar. Sunny one minute, raining the next. And that’s just the summer. The Winter pretty much guarantees to be raining or blowing a gale force wind at least 70% of the time. Perhaps that’s why libraries do great business there. And isn’t it a romantic notion, to be curled up indoors reading with a mug of something warm and comforting while rain pitter-patters on the windows? My newest release, BEFORE THE RAIN, set in North Wales would make great rainy-day reading material, if...
