Back - I think . . .

OK, so life just got away from me for a while then. Thank you to the friends who wrote to enquire if I was OK. I've finally (well, I hope it it's finally) managed to crawl out from under most things - though you should see the pile of paper on my desk! And I'm not going to mention the 'To Do' list that is longer than my arm! - But now I'm back - and I hope that this time I'm staying.

The good news is that my editor loved the tweaked Italian - Ricardo, remember him? She's accepted and bought the book so now Ricardo's story becomes Kept for Her Baby and will be published in September next year. Sighs of relief all round and now it's on to the next project . .

But an acceptance is always worth celebrating so this one made me feel like the smiling face that seemed to appear night sky in the pictures that were published in the newspapers yesterday. Did you see those? Where the new moon and the planets aligned to create this 'smilling' image? They looked wonderful and after the horrible news reports we've had lately really felt like a lovely good omen - I certainly hope so.

So now it's December and we're heading for Christmas and celebrations so I need to tell you about my contests - as always there will be the Christmas Stocking Stuffed With Books as a prize . and I'll get the details of that up on my web site just as soon as I can.

In the meantime, here's a sneak peek at what's coming up in this year's stocking.

There's a book missing from this line-up because brand-new, just-published Presents author, Sabrina Philips has promised me copies of her first ever title Valenti's One-Month Mistress which is coming out in February. Sabrina doesn't have her paperback copies of this book yet, it's so brand new, but she will be sending copies just as soon as she gets them. So if you want to be in with a chance to win this great selection of books, check back soon.
I'll get all the details and the questions you need to answer to win up on my web site just as soon as I can. And then I'll be back to tell you about all these wonderful books.

So long as life doesn't swamp me again. But I'm determined to take that smiling new moon as an omen that it won't.

Hi Kate
Last night at about 6.15pm, me and mum were on our way out of the house, and I said to mum, look at the moon?
It was an incredible sight, the moon was in a sickle shape with Venus I think bottom right and another star top right. It was the most beautiful sight. A good omen I hope. Me and mum certainly made a wish.
So pleased that Ricardo has been a success for you.
xx Karen

we wanted to see it, but it was overcast here, darn it!

Glad to see you again!

Good to see you back, Kate! We didn't see the smiley face, but we saw the moon and Venus very, very close together - it looked amazing.
