I’m not sure how it got to be March already, but here we are. Today its a week exactly since the earthquake in Christchurch. It’s a very difficult time for so many in my beloved home city. While I currently live in a town a couple of hours down the road, it will always be my home town. Indeed, we still have our home there. That house is still standing but far more importantly our tenants are all safe. I was very lucky to have left Christchurch almost an hour before the quake hit and all my immediate family are safe. So many others aren’t. This terrible tragedy is heartbreaking for our nation as it is for so many other countries who have lost citizens in it. If you did want to help at all, here’s the link for the Red Cross appeal.
In book news I have new releases this month. WALK ON THE WILD SIDE hits the shelves in Australia and New Zealand and is available direct from Harlequin in the US (it is on the shelves there in April). You can read the first chapter here
Also, THE END OF FAKING IT is available now direct from Mills & Boon UK – it will be on the shelves in the UK in April. You can read the first chapter
My seventeenth story for Mills and Boon is finished. NICE GIRLS FINISH LAST will be out in the UK in September – other dates to follow. I’m planning to do a giveaway shortly for my double April releases so keep an eye on the blog and my Facebook page for details.
Thanks so much to those who’ve contacted me over this last week, your thoughts are truly appreciated, and mine too are focused on those in Christchurch who are facing such devastation and heartbreak.
