And the winner is....

Hi all

Well, the competition is now closed, many thanks to everyone who entered. Did the draw this morning with a little help from my first born (who was not too ecstatic about being dragged out of bed on his half-term!!).

The winners of a copy of The Good, the Bad and the Wild are:

Aimee Duffy

Henza Richard

So you two just email me your snail mail addresses on and I'll post off a copy asap.

To everyone else, do not despair, (shameless plug alert) copies are available to buy in paperback and ebook at the M&B website NOW. And the book will be on the shelves in the UK and Ireland next month and in North America (as a Harlequin Presents Extra) in July. I'm also doing a Goodreads Giveaway for the UK edition (you can enter to win on the right) and I will do another Goodreads Giveaway (for all territories this time) for the US edition in June!

Right, still waiting to hear back on my current ms from my ed... And taking my mind off it by joining Pinterest courtesy of fabulous fellow Riva author Nicola Marsh. I'm not really a visual author, more of an auditory one (it's the voices in my head that help me create!) but I've had great fun doing a Pinboard of photos for The Good, the Bad and the Wild with selected quotes from the book - amazing how you can persuade yourself that trawling the internet for that perfect picture of Colin Farrell's tattoo is actually extremely valuable book promotion!!

Hi Heidi! Oh my gosh isnt Pinterest soooo addictive! I thought your pic of Colin Farrell was very easy on the eye indeed!!! I think a pinboard is great for the Good, the Bad and the Wild. I'm wanting to do a scrapbook layout for my kids Nana who had them in Oz for two weeks to say thank you so I started a board for layout inspirations... soooo many inspirations but great place to keep them when I come across ideas to help me plan it.

oops "A" pinboard should read "the" pinboard is great (since i've looked at it)

Ah Heidi. I'm up to my ears with work, and I shouldn't be on the internet at all, and you go tempt me with a new thing to check out, and then- to make it worse, tell me there's a pic of Colin on there! How can I resist? As payback, I'm distracting you with my blog post today which is about my soon to be released new release with added Colin. And there's a pic there too - wonder if its the same one? Running off to check...

There's one thing I like almost as much as winning books and that's buying books. I'll pick up my copy of The good, the Bad and the Wild when it comes out in July in the States. We don't get Riva books where I live, but the USA editions are easily available online.

Everywhere I go on the net I'm reading about Pinterest. I'll have to check this out, it sounds intriguing!
