Well, it's finally here!! I am SO, SO happy that I can now officially call myself a Harlequin author. There was a time when I believed that writing for this wonderful publisher was like trying to find the code to a super-secret, highly confidential, 007 type box. What did Harlequin want? What was I doing wrong? Why can't one of the new authors they take on each year be me? Can I even write?
On and on these negative questions gathered momentum...
Coming to the acceptance that I might not belong with Harlequin, I had the idea for a new romantic suspense novel. This would be the first one I had written in almost four years. I wrote feverishly and love the characters, the plot, but most of all, I loved the idea of a series set in my fictional UK seaside town of Templeton Cove.
I sent the book off to my newly acquired agent - she loved it too! Yay! Celebration time!
My agent sent back the revisions...
Within two weeks, I was dancing around my patio :) The wonderful, gorgeous email came through one sunny day in May last year. WE WOULD LIKE TO CONTRACT 'FINDING JUSTICE'.
The rest you know - I am still buzzing, still happy and now have another book contracted with Superromance. 'A Man Like Him' will be available in August 2013.
Dreams do happen - I really hope you enjoy my debut novel with Harlequin. Let's PARTY!!!
Finding Justice - Book One in the Templeton Cove series
To celebrate my grand opening (I'll also be over at http://www.superauthors.com/ & http://vintagevonnie.blogspot.co.uk/ today), I love to GIVEAWAY a signed paperback copy to one lucky commenter. CAN'T WAIT TO CHAT!!
