Wot I have Been Doing

Chocolate! From the Armani shop! Armani chocolate! Haven’t been blogging much these past couple of months. Mainly because I’ve been up to my neck in conferences, rewrites, submissions, edits, Dr Jax going to Milan and me being a solo mum, and deadlines. It’s been a thing. Anyway, I thought I’d give you an update on … Continue reading “Wot I have Been Doing”

When Your Characters Scare the Pants Off You

Screamy is scared I really love my sheikh but honestly, in the process of rewriting Mr Sheikhypants, he and the wretched heroine decided to go to a place I was NOT comfortable with. And no, it wasn’t Huntly (though they do go into the desert, which is also not comfortable). It skated close to a … Continue reading “When Your Characters Scare the Pants Off You”

It’s Conference Time

Well, I’ve been a bad blogger. Haven’t been posting much but in my defense, have had lots on with getting Mr Sheikhypants into a fit state for sending, while angsting about my next Samhain submission and also the editing of the next Indulgence that I’m planning to send off soonish. Oh and in the middle … Continue reading “It’s Conference Time”

Soooo….you know how I threw an epic tantrum about how nothing was happening??  And many of you said to hang in there and things will start to move? Well, I woke up this morning to an email from the wonderful editor at M&B about Mr Sheikhypants. They love him and his conflict (yay me for … Continue reading “How Throwing a Tantrum Can Work”

Adventures at 3.30am

I am a slacker. I was going to post earlier but I’ve totally been recovering from the trauma of getting up at 3.30am to pitch Mr Sheikhypants to unsuspecting editors (not to mention actually writing as much of Mr Sheikhypants as I possibly could). Naturally enough I had the usual nightmare – that I’d slept … Continue reading “Adventures at 3.30am”

Mr Sheikhypants Wins!

Okay so I was naughty and didn’t tell anyone that I’d entered the Presents pitch on eHarlequin. I probably should have but to be honest I have been getting a little sick of announcing that no, I didn’t get anywhere so I thought if no one knew and I didn’t get picked then I wouldn’t … Continue reading “Mr Sheikhypants Wins!”
