News, News and MORE NEWS!!!

Peers from behind a book.

I cannot believe it has been over 5 months since I last blogged. So what has been happening I hear a few of you ask?  Well, I took some time out from writing, I cancelled my contract with my publisher and revamped Without Saying A Word and resubmitted it to Books To Go Now, who offered me a contract and here without delay is the new cover!
Beautiful isn't it? This captures my hero spot on, the way he looks at Laura as if she is the only woman in the world for him. My first lot of edits should be due this week and of course I am nail biting in anticipation. 

More news...The wonderful Heidi Betts has dedicated her new Harlequin Desire novel to me (Amanda Jane Ward) entitled Project Runaway Heiress it is available now and well worth a read. Her British hero is charming, funny and incredibly sexy.

I am also part of the Books To Go Now Blog Hop starting in May
I will be giving away swag so watch out for news on Facebook, twitter and of course on here too.

As for the writing, well I am continuing to write despite Tonsilitis, and currently working on the first of a series about six English Clergywomen. The working title of the first one is English in Paradise, and this is Rachel's story.  Will post snippets as work progresses.

Finally, I am stoked to announce that I am being confirmed in the Anglican church on June 19th.  At the midnight mass service in Bromham, I felt a tap on my shoulder and it was then I realised what I had been putting off for so long. 

Anyway, to all those that follow the Nook, I am back, I am writing and I am still as quirky as ever.

Hugs to you all

TTFN and keep it Kooky
