Some Good News on A Dark Day...

It's been a real, old fashioned November day today, murky and damp. I'm still struggling to shake off a horrible virus, and was in two minds whether or not to go to church today. I compromised and took the car (which I hate) instead of walking (which I love). I've missed the past couple of weeks, so I didn't realise that today we had a baptism. It was lovely - the church was packed, and there were lots of children, which makes a welcome change. The little boy who was Christened was very good, considering how strange it must have been for a two-year-old. His extended family seemed to enjoy themselves - fingers crossed we see some of them again, sometime!
My other bit of good news is that I've had another story accepted by Harlequin Mills and Boon. Details still need to be finalised, but Dario and Josie's story will be appearing in 2012. Watch this space for details!
Finally, news of my Big Blog Tour. I'm blogging here at the moment http://nas-dean.blogspot.com/ and for details of my next appearances with the free book offers etc, check here http://rbpp-ch.blogspot.com/

The Nights Are Drawing In...

The clocks went back last weekend. That means everyone in the UK got an extra hour in bed on Sunday morning, which was good news. The bad news is that it now gets dark just after tea, and there's a definite nip in the air. That's a good reason to stock up with plenty of nibbles and settle down to some quality reading and writing time. I was snowed in for days on end during the early part of this year, and that's when I worked on my latest release for Harlequin Mills and Boon. Weight of the Crown is set in a hot, exotic fictional country. It was wonderful to have the best of both worlds while the weather was bad. I could enjoy the snow with my family until it got too cold and wet, then scurry inside to curl up beside the fire with either  my trusty Neo or good old pencil and paper. It was a lovely indulgence to spend time writing about a land where the air was perfumed with roses and the sun was warm.You can read more about Weight of the Crown on my website, http://www.christinahollis.com and check on the progress of my Big Blog Tour here: http://rbpp-ch.blogspot.com/
