I've just received my first Mills & Boon Email "Newsletter". If you haven't had one then you can click here and sign up.
Go on. You know it makes sense. :)
Actually, the main reason I'm so excited is that the adorable Lady Gabriella's story is "Book of the Month". She's already on sale online (there's a link on the sidebar) but she'll be out there, retail, next week, so do say hello to her when you're passing, pick her up if she's fallen behind the supermarket shelves; make her feel wanted.
The other good stuff is that I've finished the page proofs of The Sheikh's Unsuitable Bride, which made a lot more sense after a gap of a few weeks. It's at the light and fluffy end of my range and is going to on sale in January 2008.
I've also just received hardback copies of Reunited: Marriage in a Million (August, 2007). Okay, the heroine doesn't look anything like Belle, who has short blonde hair with darker streaks, but it is a lovely cover. This book is not out the "light and fluffy" department and blurb very carefully avoids the heroine's major internal conflict, presumably not to scare anyone off. It's part of an amazing trilogy I've written with Barbara Hannay and Jackie Braun and I'll be telling you more about it soon.
But May is Lady Gabriella's month. I've already run a competition to give away a copy (when it's out there on the shelves I want you to buy it!), but I'll be running some kind of fun and frivolity with prizes from my back list next month. But first I'm taking a little break for, um, research.
Okay, here's a competition. I'll be away for a few days.
Look at this picture and tell me where I'm going.
Email your answer with "Picture" in the subject line and I'll draw the prizewinner on 31st April.
Whoever it is can pick a book from my back list.
