New Talent - Old Tricks!

I mentioned Sophie's Secret here recently as part of 'The Next Big Thing' writers' blog and someone must have been listening. For my work-in-progress, a time-slip novel with a twist, has just been shortlisted for the Festival of Romance 2012 New Talent Award. 

      'You - new talent?' was my daughter's response when I told her the news.
      'New-ish!' I replied indignantly.
      'Does that mean you'll get to wear a new dress?'
      'Yes - and killing, I mean, killer heels.'

I think I can still hear her laughing...  Anyway, click on the link and take a look at all the amazing people from the publishing industry who will be getting together in Bedford over the festival weekend. And in the meantime - did someone mention Botox?

You too, Dizzy C.If it wasn't for a mix-up in the hotel restaurant we might never have met! On reading your brilliant blog I can see why your reputation precedes you...

I sadly left it too late to have Botox, Marilyn!

Congratulations on being shortlisted. It was lovely to meet you yesterday, and I'm so glad I did or I probably wouldn't have spoken to another soul.
