On the writing front, 2013 crept in quietly! In April I had two new releases hit the shelves - on the 1st of the month 'Spice It Up', my erotic romance novella, was published by Xcite, which captured my love of tapas, wine and all things Barcelona! A day later, 'Good Enough to Trust', the second book in the Good Enough series hit the e-shelves, a much more thought provoking story with a backdrop of the often stormy Cornish coast. North Cornwall is an evocative part of the country for me, the passion of the coastline, dramatic scenery, pagan rituals, colourful history and temperamental weather make it a place I want to return to and explore time after time.
The autumn brought my exciting new contract with HarperImpulse (Harper Collins). My first release with them, 'Summer of Surrender', is out now (still on offer at 99p in the UK as I write!), my second is on my editor's desk awaiting her verdict. With both these books I had the chance to combine my love of horses with my passion for sexy heroes - a win, win situation!
My publishing year ends with the release of 'Making It Good Enough', the third and final book in the series. I will be so sad to leave Holly, Sophie, Dane and Charlie. I've had so much fun writing about, and sharing, them with you - and I've been overwhelmed at how people have taken them into their hearts. To hit a best seller list on Amazon in both the UK and the US has been a dream come true! Thank you to everyone who has read, reviewed, or just chatted to and supported me!
So what does 2014 hold? If it is anywhere near as good as 2013 I will be happy. I'm over on the HarperImpulse blog next week - chatting about what (who!) I'd like to find in my Christmas stocking. Please pop over if you have time and join in the discussion!
Meanwhile, I am eagerly awaiting edits on my bad biker boy story (well, more cheeky than bad!), and then have an exciting new project to work on with Charlotte, my editor at HarperImpulse. I also have an awesome new cover for 'Riding High' which will be out in paperback next year - keep an eye out for it!
I will be around and about on my blog, facebook, twitter and other places on the internet during December - but this is my last update here. So here's hoping you have a wonderful Christmas, with good company and many kisses under the mistletoe - and that your dreams come true in 2014.
Thank you for sharing 2013 with me!
