BELLA’S BETROTHAL began life as a first chapter in the New voices competition. It attracted a fair few comments and I thought about them and acted on one or two. Then in November last year, I joined NaNoWriMo and, as you can see from my lovely winner’s badge, right, added another 50,000 words to the re-structured book.

Moving on through copy and line edits for Mariah’s Marriage and I sent Bella’s Betrothal off to MuseItUp, who sent their congratulations.


The first copy edits arrived last night for a possible September release, so I’m introoducing her to you all. She’s feisty, red-haired and living in George Square, Edinburgh. I wander up there and look at ‘her’ house from time to time.

Millie Romano gave me a platform to make this announcement and you can read her inteview here:

Hope you’ll drop by and leave a comment or two.
