Well, this is exciting!
I’ve never really had a personal blog before. I’ve written occasional guest posts for other people’s blogs, and for a couple of years I experimented with a party blog, where I hosted excerpt parties centring on a particular sub-genre of romance – they were a great way to “meet” new readers as well as other authors, and they were great fun, but it wasn’t the place for spur of the moment thoughts or discussions.
That’s what I’d like to do here – talk about what’s important to me – or to you! – at the moment. Books (including my own!), cover art, films and tv, people, pets, opinions, whatever comes to me, big and small. And I’d love to make it a conversation with you, so please leave lots of comments and bring your friends along to join in too! There are a few earlier rambles you can check out too, if you’d care to.
So, what’s important to me today? Of course, it’s my new website! Of which this blog is such a big part. I like the idea of it being surrounded by my books, like me in my ideal virtual home :-). Please, tell me what you think of the site, or mention anything you’d like to talk about here, or ask me a question. Since it’s something of a grand opening, I’ll offer a prize – winner’s choice of one of my books – to one commenter on any post during this first week.
Good luck, and thanks for dropping by! Do keep checking in!
