Back to life, back to reality...

I had a great time last week at the RNA summer party - and the Joan Hessayon Awards. I didn't win, the trophy went to lovely Charlotte Betts, and I look forward to reading her book when it comes out later this year. But I had a fab time nonetheless, meeting for the first time Minx Lorraine, who took great photos of the event which you can see here, and Heidi Rice, writer fabuloso!, and a whole host of others who were all lovely and encouraging to both me, and my sister Fiona who came along for moral support.

I flew back on Thursday, and have been driving family here and there, supermarket shopping and catching up with the pile of washing ever since - ah, the glamour of it!

I also have edits in for the final third of Marrying Cade, which look completely do-able, although I need to rewrite one chapter....

So it's back to reality, and to work asap! Thanks for all the support and lovely comments through last week's excitement, everyone!


  1. Sounds and looks like you had a blast. Good luck on the edits. I just sent mine off :)

  2. Yay! It was so lovely to meet you at long last. Sorry we didn't get the chance to chat more -- it always seems to be that way at these parties! Hope to see you at the conference? Or sometime soon!

  3. I'm sorry I didn't make the party, Sally. It would have been lovely to meet you in person. But it looks like you, Lorraine Minx and everyone else had a great time.


  4. But you didn't take meeeee! =)

    I'm so glad you had a great time, Sally! Lots of luck with those edits!

  5. Hi Talli, great to meet you too, at last. Hope we'll get a chance to catch up again soon, if not, we can continue to natter online!
    Suz and Lacey, one day...minx manor...

  6. I'm still clearing up the party fallout too, Sally! It was fab wasn't it? Can't wait to do it all again! XX

  7. Thanks for finding me on Twitter! Very nice to meet you and as I'm now following your blog (feel a bit like a stalker here!!) I can catch up with your posts etc. I absolutely love the cover of your book - simply stunning.
