Just a quick note to say no, I didn't do a Shirley Valentine and stay in Spain! I enjoyed the break from the internet so much that I decided to stay off and get on with some writing, and I'm just popping in to say that I am working hard on my next adult book. I'm also waiting for the copy-edits for The State of Grace and hopefully when I come back here in November I'll have some exciting news about proof copies.
Hope you're all having a gorgeous autumn... the fire has been lit once already here!

I'm having a couple of weeks holiday with NO INTERNET (hooray!). I'll be back soon - if you read Wildflower Bay meanwhile and have a moment to leave an Amazon review that would be wonderful, thank you!
Look at my gorgeous child.
