This and that

Firstly may I point you all at Della Galton's blog, where she has answered the three questions she's most often asked about short stories. Definitely worth a read!

Secondly, the photos from the November Romantic Novelists Association party are now up if you'd like to take a look. I'm in pic number 25, bottom left corner on the thumbnails. That's me in a grey dress, looking short and dumpy compared to Della who's standing beside me. Also in the pic are Wendy Clarke and fellow Carina author Karen Aldous, and a chap whose name has sunk without trace in the murky depths of my terrible memory.

Thirdly, I'm delighted with sales of my time management book, Give Up Ironing. If you've read it and liked it, I'd love a review! I have also recently given up vacuuming, as I had a bad back and then my hoover broke. Maybe I should write a sequel.

Finally for aspiring romance writers, here's a competition for you, run by Prima in association with Mills and Boon. Good luck!

I hope 2015 has started well for all my blog readers, and that you've hit the ground running with plenty of ideas and energy for all your writing projects. Please do keep in touch and keep sending me any links or snippets of news which would be of interest to womag short story writers to post on this blog.

Happy New Year, Kathleen. I wish you a wonderfully successful year filled will lots of book sales :) I don't suppose you know where I can find the terms and conditions of the Prima comp.? Normally I am not able to enter magazine/Richard and Judy competitions because I dare not live in the UK at present (even though I am a UK citizen and always, proudly be so :) All the very best and thank you for an interesting and informative post.

that's all I can find - hopefully the information is there!

Happy New Year to you too.

Kath, just thought I'd mention that you have never looked dumpy in your life :)
