celebrated the publication of Nicole Locke's very first book. This was after I had met her at the Mills & Boon Author Party in London back in September.
I was delighted to share the news of her book with everyone - I so remember the excitement of the very first title to be published.
At the time I had also asked Nicole if, as a way to mark my 30 years of publication (that first book The Chalk Line came out in December 1984) she would write me a little bit about her favourite Kate Walker novel. I know that she said she'd find it too hard to pick one title so I left that alone and said if she ever did want to write about a favourite to let me know.
Today she has done just that - and more ! Because to mark the publication of Olivero's Outrageous Proposal, Nicole has written the most lovely blog post about my writing, not here on this blog, but over on the official Mills & Boon blog on the Mills & Boon web site. If I'm honest, I had to go away and blow my nose and blink rather hard when I read it. It is such a lovely post and to say that I'm honoured is an understatement. I'm so touched and complimented to think that a fellow writer has enjoyed my work like this for so long - it's the greatest compliment someone can pay to an author.
So all I can say is Thank you Nicole - thank you so much. You've made my day - week - month -year! And I hope I'll see you again at AMBA this year so I can give you a big hug to say thank you in person.
And this has me wondering - do you have a special Kate Wallker title that you've loved and really enjoyed? If anyone wants to write and let me know of a story that sticks in your memory, I'd love to share with every one else - after all, you don't get to celebrate 30 years of publication every day!
