Yesterday was a lovely day for me. First of all, my post celebrating being the Mills and Boon Book of the Month is up at the Mills and Boon community. It was a very personal post to write but timely, I think, as my tenth book for Harlequin Mills and Boon also deals with the reason why I began writing in the first place. And it took ten manuscripts for me to get published.

Then I found out that in addition to being out in the UK this month, Proud Rancher, Precious Bundle is also out in India.


I will have my first ever German release later this month!  This TOTALLY made my day. Hired: The Italian's Bride is coming out as Picknick Mit Einem Playboy.

It was the sort of day that really helps when you feel you're possibly writing into the void. And I solved the problem with my novella too - it was really dragging and going so slowly and then voila! I realized what my heroine was really afraid of. I can write the ending now and then go back to the earlier chapters and adjust and foreshadow correctly. :-)


As lovely as yesterday was, today is nicer. Because fifteen years ago, on a similarly gorgeous autumn day, we said "I DO". When I think of all the changes that have taken place in that time, it is staggering. How young we were. How much was ahead of us! And here we are - not without our scrapes and scars but stronger than ever, I think.

So here's to my real life hero - I'm sure my editors will forgive me if I take the day off to celebrate a wonderful anniversary. :-)
