My baby is out in the world

Posted on Posted in Business, Marketing and Publicity


July 2009.

WOW that came around fast.

And this month sees the launch of my very first published book to bookstores across the USA and to Mills and Boon subscribers to the reader services. And online, anywhere. The world. The galaxy. The universe.

People may actually be PAYING to read Amy and Jared’s story. Which is a totally awesome prospect.

I am so excited that I can’t sit in my chair for more than a few minutes.

Also more than a little anxious. Will she be bullied? Let alone and rejected on the shelves which I am sharing with, gulp, top authors such as Ally Blake and Trish Wylie in the Romance Line  so that her pages become tattered and faded?


I must cut down on the strong coffee.

I shall now channel my inner Danielle Steele, don my most uncomfortable designer gown and wait for my life as a published author to miraculously transform me into the glamorous romance writer which is in here somewhere.

Except without the puff sleeves. And the plaster whippet.

Update – have waited five minutes and nothing has changed, so currently wearing loose top, loose skirt, no shoes, windows open and fan on max. at 7.50am.  No jewels whatsoever.

Whatever would Babs say?

Probably something along the lines of ‘ keep writing my dear’. So that is what I shall do.

The official OnLine Virtual Launch party for ‘Always the Bridesmaid’ starts on Monday. MUCH more to come.
