a new book this way cometh

Remember this post? Here No? Then go read it. It has pics of Jason and Freddie from After the fire. Well.... I got offered a contract for it :) Jamie, my editor with WRP liked my changes and emailed this morning. I've filled in and sent back the pre-contract form.

Yay. I shall have to dig out my copy and refresh my memory before edits begin. It's about a girl named Freddie and a bloke called Jason. He left her 15yrs ago and is now her boss. It's also got bad guys, gun fights, heart stopping moments and death in it. But then, it's written by me so what do you expect? LOL. Its also got lots of romance and a happy ever after.

Right now my mind is full of the current WIP - about a deaf heroine, Adeline, and a cop named Nate. Based on the child, hat, lightning storm prompt from WRP this one, called all of me, has taken over my life completely. I'm dreaming it.

Yes... it has a title and is only a WIP. Unheard of for me. What's more...it has a plot. Although i now run out of plot so may have to plot more.

what else is happening. Umm R has left school!!! He's on - coughstudyleavecough - though that seems to consist of xbox, tv, food, xbox.

And i tried dying my hair. it didn't work. So back to the shops for bleach i go. Watch it go orange now. Or do I just put up with 4ins of grey roots on hair thats now way past my shoulders and half way down my back.

Tell you its a good job i don't work where i used to. The rule there was your hair wasn't allowed to touch your collar. Hmmm, even in a really high pony tail - and i'm talking from the top of my head here - my hair touches my collar. (I can reach it when i put my hand behind my back now.)

Why yes i do have a problem with capital i's. :P

okay, J due home soon. Gonna drag her to the library to rtn her well overdue library books. Then she can clean up the mess she made at breakfast. I haven't done it because as we all know M is for Mother not Maid.

CONGRATS on the new contract, Clare!! Woo-hoo! I'm happy for you.

Do you love long hair? Mine's long and I consider cutting it, but I always hated it short and despise the growing out phase. So...it keeps growing.

Again, congrats!

Thanks Dora.
And yes I love my hair long. Right now its long enough for me to touch if I put my hand behind my back. Takes hours to dry but as I don't have to wash it every day I don't mind too much.

A Tuscan Legacy book one - That's Amore

THAT’S AMORE A Tuscan Legacy Book 1

When Rafaele and Jayne meet again two years after dancing the night away together in Tuscany, is it a matter of fate or of faith? After deciding to take a six-month sabbatical, Italian lawyer Rafaele Rossi moves from Florence back to Villa Rossi in the middle of Tuscany, resigned to managing the family farm for his aging nonna after his father’s passing. Convinced a family get-together is what Nonna needs to lift her spirits, he plans an eightieth birthday party for her, making sure his siblings and cousins attend. The Keswick jewelry store where Jayne Austin has worked for seven years closes its doors. Jayne takes her generous severance pay and heads off to Italy—Tuscany to be precise. Choosing to leave her fate in God’s hands, she prays she’ll miraculously bump into the handsome best man she’d danced the night away with at a friend’s Tuscan wedding two years ago. She hasn’t been able to forget those smoldering brown eyes and that rich Italian accent. J…

A Tuscan Legacy book 4 - Ti Amo by Marion Ueckermann

She never wants to get married. He does. To her.
The day Alessandra Rossi was born, her mammà died, and a loveless life with the father who blamed the newborn for her mother’s death followed. With the help of her oldest brother, Rafaele, Alessa moved away from home the moment she finished school—just like her other siblings had. Now sporting a degree in architectural history and archaeology, Alessa loves her job as a tour guide in the city of Rome—a place where she never fails to draw the attention of men. Not that Alessa cares. Fearing that the man she weds would be anything like her recently deceased father has Alessa vowing to remain single. American missionary Michael Young has moved to Rome on a two-year mission trip. His temporary future in the country doesn’t stop him from spontaneously joining Alessa’s tour after spotting her outside the Colosseum. And being bold enough to tell her afterward that one day she’d be his wife. God had told him. And he believed Him. But Alessa shows …

Justice - Emily Conrad

Blurb: Jake thought he was meant to marry Brooklyn, but now she's pregnant, and he had nothing to do with it. Brooklyn can’t bring herself to name the father as she wrestles with questions about what her pregnancy means and how it will affect her relationship with Jake. If Harold Keen, the man who owns the bookstore across from Jake's coffee shop, has anything to do with it, the baby will ruin them both.
Excerpt
The door opened, and Brooklyn ducked through. The only mascara left on her face was a faint smudge below one of her eyes. That could only mean one thing: she was pregnant. She took an uncertain step toward him. He wrapped her in his arms, but even so, she’d never been further out of his reach. “I can’t do this,” she said against his shoulder. “You can.” He leaned his head to look at her face. Her closed eyes seeped tears. “We’ll do it together.” Liar. He couldn’t help her with a baby. That job belonged to Caleb. Yet, he had the sense that the promise answered his prayer. It …
