Happy New Year!

I hope you had a lovely Christmas break, and that you're now looking forward to a happy, peaceful and productive New Year! 
January 2011 sees my latest book, The Master of Bella Terra, released in the US as a Presents Extra. I'll be blogging this month at IHeartPresents (http://www.iheartpresents.com) on Wednesday, January 5th, at the Pink Heart Society (http://pinkheartsociety.blogspot.com) on Saturday 8th January and Author Sound Relations (http://authorsoundrelations.blogspot.com) on Sunday 9th January, and I'd love you to drop by.

Competition Winners!

Congratulations to Beth and Kelly, who won first and second prizes respectively in my Christmas Competition. I've already emailed you both, separately. Thanks to all who entered!

We've been snowed in for the last week, and everywhere looked so pretty. With the lane impassable to traffic, it's been very quiet. The only sounds have been deer moving through the wood, and squirrels scampering through the branches. Then yesterday it began to thaw, but a penetrating frost overnight turned even the cleared tracks glassy with black ice. Getting to church was a challenge - half a mile down a slippery slope, then a quarter of a mile up a steeper one, but it was worth it to see the second candle lit on the Advent wreath.

Competition Time!

There's still time to enter my latest competition: nip over to http://www.christinahollis.com for details!

Went out for a lovely romantic dinner at the Stonemill Restaurant last night, just me and my lovely OH. Then there was a lovely moonlit walk, followed by a drive home through the forest. It was magical.

I Love Technology

They say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. That's true - one blogging webinar and I've started pressing buttons all over the place. How did I get here? I have no idea. Will it work? I don't know, but I'm experimenting with all sorts of things at the moment as I love chatting to readers, writers and other interesting people.
It's currently 3pm on Friday afternoon, and my brain is in meltdown after a whole week of writing interspersed by hideous domestic dramas, so I thought I'd kick back by trying making my own blog. As a technological dimwit (the title's a joke, in case you hadn't guessed) I'd welcome any help. When it comes to this site what you see is, quite literally, what you get. What's the best way to illustrate a blog? What are the things you love to read about? How often do you dip into the blogs you follow?

A signed copy of my next Harlequin Mills and Boon Modern Romance, The Italian's Blushing Gardener, will go to the sender of the best hint, tip or nice, polite suggestion!
