My Writers' News arrived this week and the lead story was my brush with the plagiarist and how the romance writing community came together with the most amazing support.
Special mention went to Googlefus, Elizabeth Chadwick, the Seriously Serious Scribes on Facebook and Jo Bourne, all of whom tracked down the whole story and made the woman who'd stolen not only my work, but that of Catherine Mann, Julie Kenner and Marie Ferrarella - and who knows who many others - 'fess up and admit what she'd done. No excuses.
They were all brilliant, as was everyone who emailed, tweeted and FB'd with their support.
Clearly we share the same vision of writing. It's there on the first page of my book -
"The first rule of writing - there are no rules."
I also received the US cover artwork of The Last Woman He'd Ever Date, which is very pretty. I'll get that up in a day or two.
Add this to a hilarious post on Smart Bitches Love Trashy Books from "pig", who said some lovely things about Tempted By Trouble and this fabulous review for Flirting With Italian at Wearing My Reading Hat -
Glad I took a chance…
Liz Fielding’s Flirting with Italian. I generally don’t pick up Harlequins without a recommendation. So glad I gave this one a chance after reading a review of it on AAR. I loved everything about it from the Italian setting to the lead characters to the way the relationship develops and sex doesn’t take over the story. This one has been added to my comfort read pile and I’m sure I’ll read again when I’m in the mood for it.
All I can say is - some weeks are just magic!
