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.
