Blog and website? Of course!

I'm sure you're chuffed to hear I've decided to keep this blog going. It's dark, just like the mysteries I write about. And I have lovely followers. :-) This means I have to transfer posts manually but hey, the more exposure the better. Oh, I'm talking blogs here, of course! Some news coming up soon. Fab news. Exciting news. Very soon. Just got to finalise the details and then all shall be revealed. ~bounce~ So please stay with me here for rants, ravings and news on my writing but for excerpts and additional details please check out my new website - . I'll be back soon! xxx

Hugs, C xx

Now the waiting game begins in full. Fortunately I don't have time during the day for nail-biting, and with getting back home late and early sleeps it's perhaps a little easier than during a quiet period in work when there would be no distraction whatsoever. So maybe it's just as well I'm running my socks off... Still, the butterflies in my tummy never go away completely and I'm extremely nervous. I really really hope she likes the story and the romantic element is strong enough.
