Minxy Magic

Last year, Mills and Boon ran a fantastic competition for all Mills and Boon wannabe authors. The challenge was to write the first chapter of a Modern or Modern Heat Romance. Over 400 entered, and there were 2 winners, and 2 runners up. There were great forums where writers egged each other on, and a spirit of camaraderie which was, frankly, inspiring. Lots of my blogging friends joined me in this journey. When the winners and runners-up were announced and I wasn't one of them one of the things I missed most was the companionship with like minded writers. Eight of us banded together and started an online critique group - The Minxes of Romance. We work together, toss ideas around, and look at each others work. Its the black cloud's silver lining!
Now the Minxeshave started their own group blogsite - Minxes of Romance, which is going live on Monday! Do pop in and have a look. We'll have a Minx on Monday slot, Author Spotlights on Wednesday (and we've got some lovely authors popping by to tell us about themselves and their latest releases) and an Anything Friday - for anything we like, such as Movie Reviews, Book Reviews and Interesting News.
Here at Love and Chocolate, I've a guest blogger on the 17th - newly published author Milaya Marks will be visiting to tell us all about e-markets to sell your work.
Have a good weekend, everyone!
