Am feeling all blissful and pleased with myself today... First off, it's Mum's Day and I got a great card from my supremely talented oldest progeny! Not sure if he really thinks of me as Super-Mum or he just knows how to suck up really well (probably a bit of both is my guess), but the design he did hit all my happy buttons: particularly liked that he thinks he and his brother are Powerpuff Boys. And check out my cleavage and my knee-high boots! Wonder Woman eat your heart out. So I'm sharing it with you all, and wishing mums everywhere a Happy Mother's Day.
Not only that, but I got some lovely blogger reviews for Cupcakes and Killers Heels — which I'm also going to share, cos I'm very proud of them, and because I'm hoping to persuade a few more punters to buy my book (now we know where my son gets his sucking-up genes!!).
First up is the fab Doris O'Conor who reviewed Cupcakes on her Tardis Scribbles blog
"I laughed, I gasped, I wanted to bang their heads together...and the ending left me with a nice warm fuzzy feeling like any good romance should.
This is Heidi Rice at her best, funny, sassy, sensual and a jolly good read. If you have read any of her other books, you will love this one too and if you haven't? Why ever not? Where have you been?"
See, I'm blushing here.
Then a couple of days later I got this from RLA at the Every Day is the Same blog, where she's busy embarking on her challenge to read 365 books in a year. That's a book a day, folks (for those you who are as statistically challenged as I am). And mine came in at number 11!
"I have been a big fan of Heidi's books for a while, I find her writing is always full of quick wit, sparky characters, as well as having a very modern feel. To me her books are like the love-child of 'Sex and the City' and 'Bridget Jones', which can only be a good thing!"
Now I should fess up and say I sent copies of my book to both these bloggers because I know they like my stuff. But it's still lovely to find out that they enjoyed the book enough to write really great reviews of it. Not only that but RLA got her hubby to read it, and he loved it too. As I can't get my own hubby to read my books, that is pretty darn cool!
So here I am on Mother's Day happily basking in my own brilliance. Now if I could just get past Chapter Four on my current WIP, which is unfortunately due at the end of May, I'd be even more brilliant!
