A diamond review

RT Book Reviews gives Say It with Diamonds 4.5 stars!! Here's what else they have to say about it...

With the age of 35 looming on the horizon and a series of dating disasters in her past, jeweler Bella Scott is on the verge of giving up on love. Then a gorgeous client, William Cameron, walks into her store, requesting a valuation of a mouth-watering collection of jewelry. Attraction smolders between them, but Cameron likes his affairs hot and short, whereas Bella hasn’t given up hope on commitment and a family. Cameron has a plan to seduce Bella into having an affair with him. But what happens when his plan backfires on him? Red-hot passion, humor and relatable characters make this story a winning keeper.

Just the boost I need to crack on with these revisions. Thank you, RT Book Reviews!

Well, the revisions are in, and are pretty much what I was expecting. While my heroine is conflict-central, my hero is conflict-lite, which doesn't make for a hugely balanced read. A lot of his issues are there - I just haven't delved into them enough. So that's what I'll be doing in the next few days - balancing my laptop on my bump and my characters' conflicts. I have a feeling I could be in for a rollercoaster of a ride!

Middle of March already???

Heavens, doesn't time fly?! After not much sleep and a LOT of eye-wateringly early mornings I got the book done, and sent it in a fortnight ago - only a couple of days late, hooray!

While I wouldn't like to do it on a regular basis, there's definitely something to be said for having a tight deadline to motivate one's muse. With no time to faff around (and I can spend DAYS faffing) I had no option but to immerse myself in the story and just write it.

No doubt there'll be revisions aplenty - not least because the ending was, as usual, rather rushed. I just hope they arrive before the babe does! (And that I don't have to do a total rewrite *shudder*...)

The RoNAs

Today sees the celebration of the RNA's newly-restructured and rebranded romantic novel awards, the RoNAs, in London. So wish I could be there, but being the size of a house at the moment and about as mobile, that's sadly just not possible.

Best of luck to everyone nominated, especially my RIVA stable-mate, Kate Hardy, for her medical romance, A Christmas Knight, which has been nominated for the RoNA Rose Award. Go Kate!
