Hello my darlings,

It’s been a while since my last post, and that’s because I’ve been writing, visiting London, writing, and attending a wedding! Writing. Editing. And writing.

As a family, we love this time of year. There’s something about Christmas that makes me all warm and fuzzy. And from the lovely feedback and comments I’ve been receiving about my books, I know my readers love feeling warm and fuzzy too.

The Ludlow Hall series has struck a chord, especially Nico and Bronte. Readers are enjoying watching how their relationship and marriage unfolds with all their trials and tribulations. It was something I always wanted to read – how a couple I loved in a romance – coped with real life challenges in subsequent stories. The reader response has been nothing short of amazing and has truly humbled me.

So to keep all y’all going until book five, The Fall of Jacob Del Garda, comes out next year I had the bright idea to write a Ludlow Hall Christmas special featuring the usual suspects, Nico and Bronte, Alexander and Rosie, and the fabulicious movie star Mathias Carter and super-model Eve Langan, who gives Matt a run for his money. Bringing two independent and successful career people, who’ve overcome many early challenges in their lives, together is always fun. Especially when they don’t have time for love, marriage, children, or a happy-ever-after. How the might fall flat on their face. Hehehe. Watching them climbing out of the deep hole they’ve dug for themselves is always a blast. And Nico Ferranti steps up to lend his best pal Matt a hand in his hour of need. The scene where Matt returns the favour brought a tear to a couple of beta reader’s eyes, and that is very a good thing.

Man, I love this job.

I’m waiting for the story to go live on iBooks and Barnes and Noble. When it does, I’ll add the links. Until then, here’s the Amazon links USA and UK and SMASHWORDS.

As y’all know I’m part of a boxed set called Sugar and Sin, which has been really well received. Well, we’ve got together again to bring you more of the same – Sugar and Sin, The Sexy Seven. Seven books by the same authors plus one. The plus one is the talented and all round awesome romantic suspense writer Dana Delamar, who keeps readers on the edge of their seats. Dana has joined our ranks and we’re thrilled to have her.

We’ve been touched by the Amazon Angel who has very kindly given us a pre-order button for the set, so thank you, Amazon! The set is on pre-order at a very special $3.99 and due for release on 15th January 2014. I love the way Kim Killion of the Killion group has branded Sugar and Sin – the colour of this set is warm and sunny – just like us! I love it!


Here are the pre-order links (we’re waiting for B&N):  Kobo  AMAZON  iBOOKS

A couple of months ago you might remember I mentioned that the lovely romance author, Nana Malone reached out to me, Stacey Joy Netzel, L.C Giroux, Liz Matis, and Kristine Cayne and asked us if we’d consider being part of a romance boxed set. And we jumped at the chance!

We titled the boxed set, Sugar and Sin. Working with the girls has been one of the best author experiences of my life. We bring many strengths to the party. During our on-line meetings we have plenty of laughs while we power through the decision-making and get things done.

And today we are officially Amazon best sellers by hitting number one in Kindle Deals. I never thought I’d ever see this day so I’ve taken a screen shot. We’re about (fingers crossed) to hit the overall Amazon top 100 best-selling books and if that happens the champagne will be opened in this house.  There are almost 3,000,000 million books published on Amazon and to say competition is fierce is something of an understatement. By participating in the boxed set it has brought visibility to the rest of our books. It’s an amazing feeling to reach and hear from new readers. Every message saying a reader has enjoyed the stories makes our day.

So, we’re about to embark on another endeavour.

This time there will be seven of us because we’ve been joined by the awesome author/editor Dana Delamar and will be The Magnificent Seven when we publish our next Sugar and Sin boxed set.

And I have news of a thrilling and chilling paranormal romance boxed set too, so watch this space.

The fabulous thing about being independent authors is the way we can be nimble-footed in a rapidly changing business environment to give readers what they want more of and I’m thrilled to be a small part of a great team.

I want to take this opportunity to thank DeeDee Scott who began the blog WG2E, which has now finished, and Alicia Street who began the WG2E facebook Street Team, Rhonda Hopkins and Tamara Ward.  It was through the street team that I’ve met fellow authors whose support and encouragement and sheer positivity has humbled me. They have truly caught me when I’ve fallen.

And the stupendous WANA group (We Are Not Alone) who are always there to share laughs and information, their names are too numerous to mention but they know who they are! I love you guys so much.

I hate blowing my own trumpet but can you tell I am utterly thrilled?
