I Finished It!

I finished Make That Man Mine about an hour ago and loved it.
I'm not familiar with erotica reads but I truly enjoyed this.
New. Fresh. And it worked for me.
I laughed, giggled like a school girl and wanted to attempt my come-hither eyes on DH; poor man. lol
I was totally engrossed in her imagination of the New Zealand mythology, it was refreshing.
Loved the immediate chemistry between them and especially loved that she was presented like a real woman. A woman with curves-voluptuous all over; well that's how I describe myself. hehe.
All in all, I'm going to have to buy more of Shell's work.
Thanks sweety for the entertaining day.
For those who haven't read it yet- Do so!
Now I'm inspired to perfect my own ms.


Shelley Munro: Make That Man Mine.

Well, you've probably heard I won a copy of Shell's new book: Make That Man Mine, through Christina Phillips' blog.

Well I just received it and I'll let you all know how I went; I'm sure it'll be fantabulous of course.

I read her excerpt; which you can too at the end of her interview by Christina- link on the side of my blog page, and I ginned the whole time.

Her characters have great chemistry and humour; I loved it.

Any way, I'm off to have a read.

See you all next time and happy writing.

Ally Blake

I've been surfing the blogs today and was directed to Ally Blake's Writing Tips.
I wanted to share the article with everyone who dreams of being published by HQN because it's extremely helpful.
I remember trying to breakdown my ms to figure which line it would fit into and i had gotten it wrong, which meant i waisted my time and resources and the editors of HQN.
Ally has broken it down for dummies like me and I sure wish it was around when I first sent my ms out.
I hope it's as helpful for someone else as it was to me.
Thanks Ally.


Happy Writing

How lucky are we? Answer- Extremely!!!
Thank You, RWA & HQN.

Who else asked to pitch to HQN at the conference and get to e-pitch instead?

I'm soooo excited because I just sent my pitch and first chapter last night and can't wait to get the feedback.

I have to thank Sandie and Diane for the 50k in 30day challenge last year. This was the push off for this ms, it's unfortunate I couldn't sign up again this year, but I had loads to do.
I wish everyone luck for this years challenge, you'll love it.

I can't wait to meet so many of you finally at the bris conf; heck, I can't believe I'm going! Yah!!!!

Anyway, I'm totally motivated at the moment and decided to revamp my first ms.

'Ooohhh', I hear you say. I know, it's a task. But it's also really interesting to see how much you've grown as a writer.

I let you know how it goes.

Happy Writing, all.
