The weather lady said we're heading for a few sunny days down here in the south of England, maybe even a heatwave, which is typical now that we've got the flood pump working so nicely ...
Yep, in a few hours the children will be on their summer school holidays for a whole six weeks as well, so there's no ignoring the fact that summer really IS happening. Hurrah!
On reflection, the last two summers in my house were anything but relaxing; submissions, book deals, a publisher folding,deadlines and other Things That Simply Had To Be Done. However this year is different. I've a book (Kidnapped by the Greek Billionaire) that, as I write, is still in the top 20 Amazon.com Kindle series romance chart after being released in February by Entangled Publishing. My second novel, The Devil to Pay is all ready for release with The Wild Rose Press on October 10th 2012, and I'm awaiting edits on my third book that's contracted to Entangled as well. Other projects are lining up behinds the scenes too, so I'm very, very happy with my lot this year.
So I'm going to try and STOP for a few weeks and just 'be', because they won't be children forever.
This is me and the little Lyndhursts a few years ago in Ibiza. A wonderful place. An inspiring place ... But enough of all that romancey stuff for now.
I'll be popping in and out to tell you what I've been up to, but until then I hope you all have a wonderful summer. Without wellies!
