Counting down the days… What does it feel like when your book is days away from being published i.e. in THE BIG WIDE WORLD??!

Hello All,

It is a heady mixture of nerves and excitement but it is entirely the unknown. Finally I will be sharing my ‘little darlings’ with you and hoping (daring to hope) you enjoy them! It takes a stupendous amount of hard work to get to that point so there is a certain amount of relief but the nerves never go away.

When you receive reviews, you wait with bated breath and – if they’re positive – you are over the moon! If they’re not, you kick the cat (credit: Harry Bingham) and get up and move on, reminding yourself that reading is an entirely subjective process.

So The Little Cottage in the Country (trailer below) is out on Monday. FORTY-EIGHT hours away! Excited, scared but actually, this time, I almost forgot! Why? Because a novelist has to be a step ahead – only way to survive – and I’m already writing the next romantic adventure!

If you do buy The Little Cottage… I hope you enjoy! Let me know what you think and have a super weekend.
