I've signed with Choc Lit!


I’ve signed with Choc Lit!   Arrrggghhhhhhhhhh!  Yep, a few weeks after the event but I am still on cloud 9zillion.  Choc Lit have signed my debut novel, No such thing as…immortality ― the first in the No such thing... paranormal romance series. 

It seriously doesn’t get any better than this.  Choc Lit were my number one choice of publisher and I still can’t believe they ― and their readers ― loved it!  Thank you guys. 

For anyone not familiar with Choc Lit ― start reading their books now!  I read a lot. Make that an awful lot.  And I can safely say their books are exceptional, standing above and beyond so much of the competition.  This year, three of their books have been nominated for the prestigious Romantic Novelists Association awards.  Jane Lovering for best Romantic Comedy, Christina Courtenay for best Historical and Kate Johnson for best Contemporary Romance. 

I didn’t for one moment think they would take me on.  They were something to aspire to.  But they did!  And I feel so incredibly privileged. 

So there you have it.  My news.  I’ll be on here providing updates as No such thing as…immortality progresses further along the road to publication.  No doubt I’ll be on here with my ramblings too.  I have a feeling that now I’ve started, there will be no stopping me.  In the meantime, good luck to Jane, Christina and Kate for Monday!

  7. Helluva nice way to start a blog (announcing you've signed with Choc Lit)!

    1. Thank you! It still hasn't quite sunk in. It was the incentive I needed though to get myself sorted. If you are anything like me, it kept being usurped on my to do list. You should do one though (oh dear. Another one says it!)- it would be lovely to learn more about you. Are you on twitter?
      Thank you again.
