I'm Ba-ack

I can't believe how long it's been since I last blogged! By now I expect I've lost all of my trusty followers (delicate eye-dab...sniff).

I've had a crazy time this last year. Talk about life interrupting big time! But it's a new year and I'm back now. Computer virus is history and while I'm still balancing on the edge of where I'm taking my writing next, I do have my screenwriting course to look forward to.

I know you will all be wondering what happened to the story I had with HMB. Well, I got a second revision letter but decided not to pursue it. Before you throw your arms in the air and proclaim me crazy, let me defend myself. While I got the fab revision letters, I didn't get any real guidance, therefore I could very well spend the next five years shooting in the dark trying to guess what the editor wanted from the story. In the end I had to face the facts...I will NEVER be a Harlequin Mills and Boon author. It was a hard decision, since I've been targeting HMB on and off for the last 20-odd years, but in the end I decided I  needed to leave the past behind and move forward.

Zach's Rebound Girl is with my TWRP editor and I'm waiting to hear what she has to say. Meanwhile, I'm writing a story set on a private island and it's turning out to be a lot hotter than I normally write--perhaps it's the sultry Caribbean weather that's heating things up in the story.

So keep your eyes peeled for news about Zach's Rebound Girl and Island Fling.

Hope you are all having a fab start to the new year.

God bless.

Love & Hugs x

  1. Happy New Year, Monique! :-)

    Love the title of your new story, Island Fling. Fab! And fingers crossed for ZRG with TWRP. I'm sure they can't say 'no' to another winner from you.

    Take care,
    Cathie xxx

  2. Happy New Year Monique! Great to hear from you! Congrats on making such a brave decision regarding HMB. I know how much pain it would cost me and I just think it's amazing. And hey you can always give it another go if you want later. There's not hard and fast rules here. Looking forward to hearing more about your latest and greatest x

  3. Thanks, Cathie! You sweet talker, you...:D

  4. This is true, Lacey. One should always keep an open mind.

    Happy New Year. :)
