I am an erotic Christian

I grew up in a very conservative household. My parents were devout Christians and raised me and my siblings accordingly. This meant that our sex education purely covered the absolute basics and nothing else.

Calendar Girls – February

Welcome to the next instalment of Calendar Girls, a monthly blog event hosted by Flavia and Melanie. The theme for this month is Best YA Romance.

Best YA Romance – The Royal We

 For my pick this month, I have chosen The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan.

There, she meets – and falls in love with – Prince Nicholas, the future king of Great Britain. As she is drawn more into the glitz and glamour that is Nicholas’ world, she has to make a decision: does she want to sacrifice everything for love? Continue reading “Calendar Girls – February”

Great start to 2017

My year has gotten off to a good start: I have been accepted for the New Writer’s Scheme of the Romantic Novelists’ Association. In addition to the usual RNA member benefits members of the New Writer’s Scheme are invited to submit a manuscript for a critique. The deadline for this is 31 August. Which gives me 8 months to write and edit a book for submission. Which is great, because I love deadlines! I am so pleased to have applied and to have been accepted; it feels like I am finally taking my writing seriously. Which I am of course, but rather than just saying it, I am actually doing it.

I have also subscribed to Mslexia, a quarterly writers magazine for women. They also run an online writers community which I will have access to so that should be good. And I have decided to enter a short story in their competition in March. So yay, lots of fun writerly things to look forward to.
