Writerly stuff

Last night I had the enormous pleasure of seeing my good friend, Phillipa Ashley at a party for the launch of her new book for Little Black Dress. My eldest daughter came with me as Mr Nell was working and we both had a wonderful time. It was lovely to meet so many people whose names I'd seen on the net, but of course didn't know in person.
Wish you were here looks like a wonderful read so grab your copy as soon as you can. I think some shops may be experiencing delays in getting their supplies as I've had problems finding it in the shops, so go and order a copy so you don't miss out.

The other cool thing I did yesterday, again accompanied by my eldest dd, was to attend a writers workshop. My local writing group had invited the Lethal Ladies, two published crime writers to give a talk at our local library.
It was very interesting to see how similar and how different crime writing and romance writing can be.
I don't think I want to be a crime writer even though some of my books have an element of crime or suspense in them. Crime writers are very dark and serious and listen to serious music while they work.
I listen to Disney Channel and Scooby Doo.
The authors gave a very good talk and eldest and I had a good time.

Hi Nell,

Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed meeting you at Phillipa's party on Saturday - and how great your daughter was at entertaining my two littl'uns.

I am just now off to Amazon to order a couple of your books - your conversation has whetted mny appetite for some of your writing!

Nell - it was lovely to see you and I completely forgot to GIVE you a copy of WYWH. Yes, I'm sure they'll hit all the shops and supermarkets very soon. In the meantime they are online at Play, Amazon and Waterstones.
