Yay!! It's official!

Getting the call from Richmond to say they wanted to buy my book was fantastic, but two minutes after I put the phone down I was certain I'd dreamt it. Receiving a contract, and then a little while later an advance cheque made it seem a little more real.... But appearing in the New Author slot of the Pink Heart Society's brilliant site.... well, that really makes me feel like it's all happening!

Mills&Boon definitely can't change their minds now, can they?

A contract, advance and PHS post - it's FAR too late for M&B to change their minds.

India, you've OFFICIALLY made it, mega congratulations!!!

Sue :-)

P.S. Please can you take a small detour and pick your other scribe up from the bottom of the ocean, and while you're there teach me how to swim too? Much appreciated ;-).

Oohh thanks Abby! I'm reading yours right now-- started it yesterday and didn't switch the light out til 20 past 1 this morning! LOVE IT (by which I mean I love Xavier...)

And Sue, I'm just about at the water-wings stage myself so am not remotely to be relied upon, but maybe if we all hold hands we'll stay afloat!

Congratulations, India, that was a lovely post at the Pink Heart Society!

Next you must tell us all about the current work in progress. Which reminds me...I'm about to put my word counter back down to zero. May I add to yours?

Much as it grieves me to say it - a brilliant interview, India - and great photo - amazing what they can do with computerised pics.

Joking aside - hugest congratulations, so pleased for you! Do we get to have another party to celebrate you being PHS'd?

Better get my bum over to the Pink Heart Society. I just hope there's room for me amongst the audience you're obviously drawing.

India, loved the interview, and keep Plan A going.

With your talents, I'm positive that you will not only be a world-renowned (wait...is that spelt right? Anyway), a FAMOUS & RESPECTED writer, and be so famous and respected that they'll toss the Spanish Count, give you all his lands, then you shall be a Countess, knight your husband a Count, and the two of you can practice dainty steps in between all your interviews with Oprah, Barbara Walters, etc., etc.

No, Brown, no, it'll never work. Feet. Too big.

Thanks Sara (and I blame Amanda. I don't know why-- I just do.)

I'll take your word for it, India. But as someone striving to be 5'2, I'm a moose in Chihuahua's clothing. Just remember: when you're a Countess, you can TELL them that your steps are dainty and NO ONE will argue...it's the one time that it's better telling, than showing :P
