When you’ve had a book published, done all the PR/blogging/tweeting etc to launch it into the world and things start to calm down again, the question you are asked most frequently is “what are you working on now?” (That is, if you are talking to fellow book-lovers/writers, not family members who still haven’t realised [...]
It’s finally here – publication day for The Gilded Fan – and I’m afraid that against Sarah’s advice (well, it was good advice even though you couldn’t possibly follow it for a debut novel), I’m not going to be professional, I’m going to start this post with a ‘squeeeeeeeeeeeee!’
As the Festival of Romance approaches, the thought that seems to be occupying most attendees’ minds is not “who is going to win an award?”, but “OMG, what am I going to wear?!” There have been discussions about shoes, dresses and accessories on Facebook, Twitter and various blogs, with suggestions flying back and forth.

Today I’m very pleased to be able to share with you the cover for my next Choc Lit novel, The Gilded Fan - I’m really thrilled with this one and love the Oriental feel of it, which was exactly what I wanted!
Seeing a new cover for the first time is very exciting and I [...]
So it’s finally here – official publication day for The Silent Touch of Shadows! It’s a day I’ve waited a very long time for and I can’t tell you how pleased I am that it’s arrived at last.
There are some stories that are really worth fighting for, because you believe in them whole-heartedly [...]
