Islington Workshop & Book Comp for The Mile High Club!

Hey all...

Hope you had a wonderful sunny weekend. It was a bank holiday here in the UK so my DH and I decided to decorate our front room. One of those daft decisions that you totally regret when you're knee deep in paint, and dust, and general decorating crap and it's blazing sunshine outside... Oh well, now it's all ready for the next Bank Holiday at the end of May (when it better not be raining).

Now I have news. I'm going to be at Islington Central Library tomorrow evening doing a writing workshop as part of Islington's Word2013 Festival.

Here are the details:

Alpha Hero to Contemporary Heroine:
Writing Contemporary Romantic Fiction for Mills & Boon
by Author Heidi Rice
Islington Central Library
Address: 2 Fieldway Crescent, London N5 1PF
Phone: 020 7527 6900
Wednesday 8th May

You need to ring the library to book a space, but it's completely free and I will have free books to give away to attendees.

I also got a rather cool package in the post last week with a brand new Riva-branded copy of my 2007 story The Mile High Club, which has been out of print now for a number of years and is only being made available to subscribers in the UK...

This story is very dear to my heart, it was only my second book, has settings in London, Paris and New York (my three favourite cities) and has as its heroine a young journalist on a London listings magazine (yes, that would be my first proper job) and the hero is an enigmatic American crime novelist. Plus the book got a RITA nomination!!

Anyway, I have one spare copy to give away... So if you want to be in with a chance to win you need to enter the Rafflecopter below:

My favourite series of linked books for me is The Hero trilogy by Gina Wilkins.

Ive never been able to write about an alpha male. All the heros I write about are the good geeky guy

Loving the new Riva cover for The Mile High Club! And I'm definitely coming down to one of your workshops soon!

I'm reading a Special Edition series, The Foster Brothers, by Tracy Madison. I'm really enjoying it.

I just read a book by an author whose books I have enjoyed through the years. This time, though, I must say it wasn't my favourite. By a long shot.
Thankfully, I have had this happen before, so I won't give up on reading more from that author. As I've heard before, "You can't win them all!" and/or "One man's junk is another man's treasure" ... or something like that.

Thanks for all the great book suggestions... Defo stuff to add to my TBR pile there.... Jane., yes do come to one!! And Laney know what you're saying. I've been devouring Kresley Cole's A-mazing Immortals After Dark series and it's been building and building but the one I've just read is gonna be IMPOSSIBLE to better... So was not surprised to be a bit disappointed by the one I just started....
