I have a new cover! Which is because I have a new book coming out.
This one is another contemporary romance, a companion book of sorts to my first one. Those of you who read it might remember Kate, the heroine Jo’s pregnant sister-in-law? Well Playing by the Rules is the story of how she came to be Jo’s sister-in-law.
Here’s my quick, hasty-tasty blurb for Playing by the Rules…
Playing by the Rules is the story of Kate, a woman who had her life all planned out – until her intended dumped her. Now, her best friend is pushing her to have a fling and, with the gorgeous Josh on offer, she’s very tempted.
But she’s never been very good at casual. Before long, she fears she’s falling for him: a man who can’t commit to anything past lunch and who’s flitting off for another adventure at the end of the week. She doesn’t know the rules of this game but it seems its name is heartache…
Tempted? I hope so! And if you are, you don’t have too long to wait. Playing by the Rules is out next month from Destiny Romance. The buy links should all be live on September the 15th – trust me, I’ll let you know! (UPDATE: There’s a ‘coming soon’ link up now, with a rather cute blurb on the Destiny site. I’m coming soon!)
And now, for the reason why the blurb above is a quick, hasty-tasty one: I’m not in Kansas any more, Toto! In fact, I am typing this from Perth – or, more correctly, for those who know Western Australia, Fremantle – where I have come to attend the annual Romance Writers of Australia conference. The conference doesn’t start till Thursday night, but I have family here, so I’ve come a bit early to catch up.
I probably won’t be posting much to the blog over the weekend, but I will be tweeting, from https://twitter.com/Imelda_Evans, so feel free to follow the shenanigans there. And watch this space next week when I get back. I’m planning a bit of celebratory carry-on for the new book, which will probably include prizes…
It’s always hard to know what readers will like, but this book is close to my heart. I am very fond of the characters and the story and I really hope you will like it as much as I do.
But for now, off to the conference, to learn to be a better writer and to see my writer buddies. I hope you have as great a weekend as I hope to!
Good luck with the new book Imelda, it looks great 🙂
Thank you, Lee-Anne! Sorry it took so long to reply. The wifi was a bit iffy at the hotel so I got a bit behind!
Can’t wait!! Loved “Rules Are For Breaking”! Have a wonderful time at the conference. Resa xo
Thank you lovey – I did have a wonderful time. Are you still slaving over a hot shoot, or are you done and dusted?
Still slaving, The shoot goes for 9 more weeks! “lol” 🙂
Cool – and congrats on the new book! Good stuff – and best wishes for every success with it.
Thank you Matthew, your support is very much appreciated! Sorry it has taken so long to reply. I’m not as good as some people at keeping up with these things while I’m away. I noticed some people even managed to blog while at the conference, but not this little black duck. I’m very fond of this story, so I hope other people like it as much as I do. And break a title page yourself! I believe you have a couple of books coming out this year, if memory serves?
Thanks – yes, both published in the last two weeks, and out in the shops now. Different publishers, and they kind of collided, but I don’t think it’ll affect sales as they’re totally different subjects, formats and price bracket.
