This week saw the publication of my latest Choc Lit title, Want to Know a Secret?
Want to Know a Secret? is about family and money and who thinks which is most important. A helicopter accident spills one secret after another when Diane Jenner’s husband, Gareth, turns out to have been aboard. And Diane discovers, at the hospital, a family of strangers - all of whom seem to know exactly who she is.
Just about everyone loves the cover and, I believe, it has gone straight into the W H Smith Travel charts. I’ve done some radio interviews and received good reviews, so you’d think that I’d be satisfied with that.
But, on the same day - Starting Over, my first Choc Lit book, came out as a large print hard back.
AND a story that was formerly a magazine serial for The People’s Friend, One Summer in Malta, came out in large print soft back!
I don’t suppose I’ll ever have another hat-trick and it prompted me to blog about subsidiary rights and what they mean to the writer at the RNA Blog.
Publication day brought a lovely box of chocolates and bottle of champagne from the wonderful Choc Lit team. The chocolates, I’m afraid, are no more, but the champagne is chilling for the weekend, when Formula 1’s Brazilian Grand Prix will be live in my sitting room …
So, that’s my weekend planned out. What have you got lined up for yours?
