Happy New Year!

Gosh, I feel like I haven't blogged in forever! I hope you all had a Christmas and New Year and that you're coping with the snow. One of the bonuses of moving into the centre of Brighton is that most of the streets are pretty clear and I don't have to deal with the 'hills of icy death' at my last flat (no actual death occurred I hasten to add) although I do kind of miss watching the students sledge down them like last year.

Writing wise I'm going through a bit of a lull at the moment. I don't really need to promote 'Heaven Can Wait' any more, novel 2 is with my editor (her edits will probably come back any day), I'm still waiting for an 'oh my god I need to start writing it NOW' idea for novel 3 to pop into my head and my short story competition doesn't close until 15th January so I haven't started judging it yet. Really I should be enjoying the lull - filling the time with novels from my towering TBR pile and consuming DVD boxed sets (Dollhouse, The Wire, Gavin and Stacey, Fringe), all of which I'm doing - but I actually feel a bit guilty! I also feel like there's a big gap in my life. I don't really feel like me unless I'm writing.

I know, I know. I should just shut up and make the most of it because, sooner or later, I'll start whinging about how much I've got to do. Some people are never satisfied!

Before I go (series 4 of The Wire is calling me!) I'd just like to point you in the direct of Average Jane's website.

She's got a signed copy of 'Heaven Can Wait' to give away (closing date 18th Jan). Just visit her blog and send her an email to be in with a chance of winning it. Good luck!

Enjoy the lull and spend some of the time basking in the well-deserved success of 'Heaven Can Wait'.

Hi.

I'm on the 'Hove actually' border and just thought I'd drop in a comment after seeing your book in WH Smiths in George Street this morning - it's on my wishlist on Amazon!

You live in town...are you crazy?! I used to live in Over Street (under the station) and that was a nightmare...I hope that the nighlife is inspiring for you rather than a pain the bum!

Anyway, congrats on the book. You are an inspiration.

Congrats to you! The explanation of a "supernatural romantic comedy" sounds intriguing!!
