It’s Spring! So I’m all dressed up with somwhere to go…

Today I’m being featured in an Author Spotlight over on the Romance Writers of Australia blog, and there’s a chance to win a copy of my book!

I’m very chuffed about it.  It’s still a novelty for me to be interviewed as an author and on the RWA blog I’m in some very good writerly company.

I got so excited that I revamped the blog specially.  What do you think?

And to celebrate the new web look, I decided that I really need to wrap up my newsletter competition and do the draw for this pretty thing from Avalaya (who make gorgeous costume jewellery and deliver pretty much everywhere):

For those who didn’t notice first time around, I’m planning to set up a newsletter e-mailing list, to use when I have book news (something I hope will be more regular in future 🙂 ).  If you would like to be on the list, you can fill out the form below and to thank you, I’ll put you in the draw for the bracelet, a copy of Rules are for Breaking (pictured in the sidebar if you’re interested) and some surprise prizes.

So if you comment over at the RWA blog and sign up here, you will have two chances to win.  And I’ll think you’re lovely!

And now the recipe I promised (and the comp is still open)

On Wednesday I promised you a recipe for chocolate pie and since I would hate to be called a chocolate tease, today I will come good on my promise.  (Update: this should have been up yesterday, I don’t know where my brain is this week!)

I must apologise for my presentation and photography: my food styling is not going to win any prizes any time soon.  But the taste will make up for it.  This pie will silence a table of guests, make you friends and possibly even sway a lover into your arms – and it’s EASY.

Here’s the recipe:

How technical issues doth make twits of us all but bling makes it better…

To all my dear readers who DON’T reside Down Under, I must apologise.

When I said my new e-baby would be available on the 15th of October, in the bright and sparkly year of 2012,  it appears I got a little ahead of myself.

It IS available, though various outlets in Australia, but it will be a leetle while longer before it can be had in t’other places.  Apparently we need to allow the little baby bytes of book to finish blinking and getting accustomed to the light before we send them on such long journeys.  (Oh all right, that’s not the real reason, but the real reason is technical and publish-y and not very interesting.)

Me, feeling a little sheepish…

Which is all a bit sad (and embarrassing for Miss going-off half-cocked over here), so I thought I needed to come up with something to make the wait worthwhile.
