I'm BACK!!!!!!

Hello!

I am still alive! How did it get to March already???

Things have been manic of course but I am THRILLED to report that I've finally updated my website. For months now (and I mean MONTHS) getting it up to date has been on my 'to do' list. Finally I've gotten to it - hooray! Now go check it out because there are lots of new excerpts up- including one for my Christmas novella out in the UK in November (it's never too soon to start thinking about Christmas!)

You'll see a latest news section there which is the new place to find out my news - although I'll probably copy the news over to here as well because I can't bring myself to shut the blog down entirely... one day (hopefully soon), when I have that little more time, I'd love to be back here more often!

Anyway, March means Mistress Under Contract is on the shelves in the US and Pleasured in the Playboy's Penthouse is available online at Harlequin Australia!

I've been busy writing up a storm - have just sent my editor what I hope will be my 10th book for M&B - and I am very excited about it.

On the personal front, we've settled into our new town - the hubby is loving his new job, the schoolgirl and preschool boy have settled into their new classes well and the twins and I have found a great Playcentre to have fun at. Life is as crazy busy as ever but we are grateful for it.
I hope all is well with you out there - drop me a line anytime!

Best wishes,
Natalie xxx

Well, I'm sooo glad you're back!!!!! The web seemed quite empty without you. To while my time away, waiting for you to get back online again, I read ALL the books you published (thank you Amazon), and I must say I devoured them all.
Good for you to have settled in your new house. Well, maybe not that easily after all, I swear I can smell the fresh paint wafting out of my computer!
Anyway, welcome back.

Echoing Brigitte's thoughts - I missed ya!!

Rach!

Natalie Anderson said...

oh thanks so much Brigitte and Rach - so nice to know you guys are out there too! It has been such a busy time but I have missed the contact...

Thank you for reading the books Brigitte and I'm so glad you enjoyed them!

Right - better go - off to watch the rugby this weekend!!!

Good to see you back Natalie!

I can't wait until I get my hands on "Pleasured in the Playboy's Penthouse" - I ordered it online the other day so I'm hoping that I get it soon.

Lacey Devlin said...

Ah Ha! You're back! I'm so thrilled. Love the new website too! Great pic! No small feat getting all those excerpts up but excellent news for us. Can't wait to get to the shops for your latest release!

Welcome back Natalie!

It's so good to see log on and see that there's been action on your blog. I'm thrilled for you all to have settled in so well, especially the little ones.
Love the new photo, very classy.
Anyway, take the time you need but it would be lovely for us girls to hear from you, even if it is only from time to time. Clearly we all miss you!!!

All the best,
Aideen.

Natalie Anderson said...

Oh Stephanie thank you - I hope it arrives soon and that you enjoy it - that one was such a lot of fun to write - hopefully that comes across in the reading!

Hi Lacey/Nikki!!! Yes, those excerpts were a bit of a mission to say the least! But only one is missing now and I'll get onto that shortly (altho knowing me I'll write a whole other book first!)

Aideen - sooo nice to hear from you too - I miss you guys! But it has been a bit crazy - but yes HUGE relief that the wee ones have handled the changes so well - better than me in fact!

Now be sure to pop by iheartpresents.com on Tuesday (10th) as I'm due to do some waffling there that day!

Love Natalie

Hi Natalie, I'm a new visitor to your blog but thought I'd drop you a line to say that I've just read Mistress Under Contract (downloaded from Mills and Boon in UK or was it the US? Can't remember!) and thought it was fab! I love a tough/fragile heroine.

Anyway, good luck with your writing - I'll be looking out for more.

Donna Alward said...

Yay Nat! Thrilled that you're back. I was getting worried....

And may I say FAB new picture???? WOW!

Sounds like things are getting as normal as they ever are...

Joanne said...

Hey Nat - welcome back :)

BTW - nice photo of you!!!

Jenna Bayley-Burke said...

Welcome back! And I second Donna...that new picture is lovely.

Nicola Marsh said...

Yay! Great to have you back.
Love the new website (and your new pic! Tres glam!)

My copy of "Pleasured in the Playboy's Penthouse" arrived yesterday - once it had dried (the box it was in was soaking), I read it and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Now that I have three of your books, I'm going to make it my mission to be able to read all of them!

Natalie Anderson said...

Thank you so much guys! You make me laugh about the picture - soft focus is a good thing huh...

Stephanie you made my day! (ok then, WEEK!) I hope you enjoy the others as much :)
