An Interview, A Sale & A Competition

‘Didn't you blog just yesterday?’ 

‘Mmm, I did, but I’ve  got a couple of things to tell you.’

Firstly, I’ve been interviewed! YES! ME! Cor Blimey, does this mean I’ve finally arrived? OK, maybe I'm getting a bit (a lot) ahead of myself, but I’m still rather chuffed that I was asked by the lovely Charlotte Harrison, who has a great blog called A Place on the Bookshelf  to answer a few questions about my writing.  The interview is HERE.  Do please pop over and say hello so it doesn’t look like I’m talking to myself.

The second piece of news is I've SOLD a story, which is fab in itself, but even more exciting as it's my 49th sale.  This means I’m nearly 50!  Oh yes! And when I reach 50 there will be much cyber-celebrating, and even a wee bit of real-life celebrating.  Mind you, I'd better not break open the bubbly and box of party-poppers just yet, as it can often be months between one sale and another ... and there are 'no' guarantees I'll ever sell again. 


Ooh, and I saw over on Blog about Writing a link to an exciting novel competition.  It’s for a romantic ‘Christmas Novel’ and the prize is a three-book deal with Harper Impulse and afternoon tea at Fortnum and Mason in London, and the link is HERE.   I’ll certainly be considering it!
