Christmas is getting closer. I bought the last of my gifts today, along with a copy of debut "Romance" author Michelle Douglas's book, HIS CHRISTMAS ANGEL. Have to keep up with what these new young things are doing! Actually we have so many young authors writing for "Romance" and that's brilliant. It keeps the series fresh and vibrant.

More news, too, on Miranda's story. There's still a little work to be done, but it's going to be called WEDDED IN A WHIRLWIND and will be published next November.

Now back to the Calendar; Claritta in Little Rock was the lucky winner of GENTLEMEN PREFER ... BRUNETTES. I'm holding off posting anything now until after the holiday, but it'll be on its way as soon as the last mince pie has been eaten.

For Day 20, I've got another oldie-but-goodie, PRISONER OF THE HEART.

This is the one where Sophie Nash, driven to desperate measures to get a photograph of elusive celebrity Chay Buchanan, finds herself his very reluctant house guest.

Why does she need the photograph? Why is he so desperate to keep himself out of the gossip mags?

If you want to find out, email me at liz with Day Twenty in the subject line, your name and address in the body of the text and this time I want to know what name you'd give a hero.

Nice to have a title for Miranda, even if Wedded in a Whirlwind sounds a bit uncomfortable to me :)

Miranda seemed to be a very "uncomfortable" person :) She sure gave Liz a hard time, but it will be all worth it when we get to read her story :)

Snorting here, Jan. I hadn't quite seen it that way -- just too relieved to have a title!

I sort of fell in love with Miranda while I was writing her story, Snookie. But she had problems; I've described the book as a Eurydice story. Both Nick and Miranda had to come from a dark place -- both figuratively and metaphorically -- to find their happy ending, but writing a book is a bit like childbirth. Once your editor has given it a title (and that was almost as painful an experience as writing the book), all the agony is forgotten. Well, maybe a few twinges when she comes back with revisions... :)
