Hitting the High Road

Here's the gorgeous off road BMW on which I'll soon be spending
a lot of time riding pillion throughout the US.
 Late this afternoon my lovely editor, Rachel, sent me my edits for The Reluctant Bride. There were lots of them but they were spot on, echoing as they did a vague disquiet I had about certain aspects, such as timeline, coincidences and the need in one or two areas to subtly erase the perception that my hero was just a little too patient with my heroine to be believable.

I'm looking forward to getting my teeth into them. I love the challenge of making plots rich, convoluted but, ultimately entirely plausible. And that is my challenge before May 8.

Meanwhile I have another book to get to my editor at Ellora's Cave. In fact, by this afternoon I hope to have sent in Book 2 in my Lady Partington series. Two Dangerous Gentlemen will follow Her Gilded Prison which was released last week.

Then it's headlong into planning for our motorbike/camping trip through California and Nevada before DH returns to Australia to look after the kids and I carry on to Kansas City for the Romantic Times Convention.


  1. We all miss you at CS Scribes, Beverley, but we know you'll be having the time of your life hooning about America, and we look forward to the details when you get back!

  2. Thanks, Chris!! I missed this in all the excitement!
