60!

I'm  sixty!

Well, no - not me - but the number of books I've written for Harlequin Mills & Boon.

I  just heard from my editor and the  'tweaks' -  aka the unravelling and knitting up the book again - have worked for her so the book is now accepted and sent off to copy-editing. And I can relax for a little while at least.

It really doesn't get any easier, waiting for a response!

Anyway, the book will be out in March 2012 - This is Carlos Diablo  and Martha's book  and I'm still waiting for a title to be confirmed. My editor loves my working title of The Devil and Miss Jones, but it has to be approved by all the Presents team - so watch this space! 

Now I need a new idea and a new hero - I shall have to do some really hard research . . .

Hero idea? How about another series? I've always loved yours!

Kate Walker said...

Thank you all for your lovely congratulations. This book wasn't one of the easy ones so I'm glad it's thorugh - specially because it's such a special number!

Rita- I'm honoured by the thought f you collecting my books. I love the idea of having such a fan in South Africa - where my father grew up and his family still live.

Kate Walker said...

Hi Beckty - and thank you ! Another one with a collection of Kate Walkers! I'm wondering which is the oldest one you have a copy of.

Kate Walker said...

Oh Kiru - another sixty! It's taken me 20 years to get to this number! But I'd love to aim for - say 75 - when M&B give out an award! Thank you for your congratulations.

Kate Walker said...

Hi Cora- thank you for visiting my blog again. I've been thinking about your writing quandry but need to go back and answer you on that. Thank you for your congrats too.

Kate Walker said...

Hello Caroline! Chuffed is the word. I really am - as my schoolfriends used to say 'chuffed to little mintballs'!

Kate Walker said...

Michelle - thank yo - from another writer, those congratulations mean a lot. I love The Devil and Ms Jones and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I get to keep it - but you know marketing . . . .

Kate Walker said...

Hello Teresa - thaki you I think the answer to your question 'how do 60 books appear in your head' - is abit like the answer to 'how do you eat and elephant' - one slice at a time. So those 60 books have appeared one page - often one word at a time!

It's like the comment about the journey of 10000 miles starting wiht a single step - you just keep putting one step/one word after another!

Kate Walker said...

Bless you Marilyn - thank you! Another series? Oh I'd love to do that . . . but that needs another two - or three ideas!

Eva said...

CONGRATULATIONS Kate, and thanks for all the wonderful stories! Here's to the next 60+ :)
