Harlequin Mills & Boon Medical Romance Novels

SHAMELESS!!!!!

Beware: This post is a not so humble brag…Or is it?????

Et voila!!! Behold the cover of my alter ego’s first paperback!

As some of you may know…I’ve branched out a bit in the writing terrain. Yes…there was a very dodgy spell when I thought “modern” poetry was the route to pursue. I was totally wrong about that. There was the country music lyrics phase (“Guitars, Guns and Girls” was the apex of creativity on that front) and, of course…there was the phase where I thought…I know! I love telling stories so much, it’d be fun to see how I went writing longer ones with sub plots and secondary characters. That’s the one that bore fruit. It turns out it is epically fun. And also massively distracting in the best possible way. There was the marshmallow countdown to ebook publication….

There were the very first reviews to get all misty eyed over…

There was the glamping research to do, the tent to sleep in, the marshmallows to toast and, of course, eat.

And then, high on a marshmallow sugar rush…I got to write another one!

For this book…

I rode my bicycle across the UK – namely, along Hadrian’s Wall. It was really, really, really hard. This book is out on eBook on June 11th as well (same date as the Glampers paperback release). AND THEN….this August in partnership with the glorious Annie Claydon, I am looking forward to the release of our Vets in Love duet set in sunny Cornwall.

I have two books coming out this Christmas. One a deliciously Scottish Medical romance and the other? It isn’t a medical romance, but I can’t tell you about it just yet. But I will. I promise.

I hope you’re all safe and well and finding ways to make lockdown a silver lining scenario. I am managing to tackle my To Read pile a bit more voraciously and FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER have weeded the entire veg patch. Turns out listening to audio books helps me get through that. What sorts of things have you been doing to get through the ‘lockdown blues?’ Or maybe you’re happy. I hope you’re happy. Sending love. xoxoxoxoxoxo Annie O’

  1. Before the pandemic, I’d work (I type/edit from home business) till 4:30/5 pm and then make supper in a hurry, as I’d often leave for badminton 45 minutes away at 6 pm. Now, with no badminton, I still work from home but we aren’t eating until closer to 7 pm (and I socially distance walk with my girlfriend from 9 to 10 pm every night instead) – and the meals? Delish! I have been trying new recipes (several we rate as 10 out of 10, but that one that was a 3 got tossed) and, like before, I bake a dessert (or sometimes main course) to freeze for later whenever the oven has extra space available (I have room for two baking sheets side by side in my oven). Yum!

    1. Oh wow. What are the 10 out of ten recipes? I love cooking but have just hit one of those lulls where my brain can’t dream up anything new. FOOD!!!!! The evening walk sounds lovely, too. SHARE RECIPES. xox Annie O’

  2. Yay!! So glad to hear that you’ll be coming to a shelf near me soon! It was an absolute privilege to collaborate (aka fool around, and laugh rather a lot) over those Vets in Love. Keep going with the sugar-rush, it’s obviously working wonders 🙂 xx

    1. Thank you so much! It’s been such an epic journey to get here (well, no dragons or actual mountains to climb, but very steep hills to ride. That sort of counts, right? Hope you’re keeping well x S

  3. OMG I could not one click your glamping book fast enough! And now I have to wait 2 weeks… If its anywhere near as funny and charming as you are, my dear, it will be wonderful and I can’t wait!
    And a shout out from Debbie Macomber? You’ve made it lady 🙂

      1. AMY!!!!!!! Thank you so much. I hope you enjoy the book! The dog and the dude are awesome, aren’t they? They are, tragically for me, attached to The Other Annie’s book, but luckily as we are a duet we get to share them for a bit. Hee hee! And the shout out from Debbie is…ooof! Humbling. She’s an amazing lady. As are you. Hope you’re doing well. xoxoxoxo Annie O’
