Can you FEEL THE HEAT?!!


Yesterday I’d all but given up any hope of placing in the Mills & Boon Feel The Heat contest at Iheart Presents, but this morning I woke up to an email from Joanne Carr, editor of Modern Heat.
I’m not THE WINNER but I am one of the Runners Up, which is such an exciting prize in itself. I’ve won an editorial critique with Lucy Gilmore. I cannot profess how ecstatic I am to have won this prize. I was going to throw myself back into this mss after a month off working on another submission, but now I’m gonna enjoy a few days break away with the family and wait until I’ve spoken to Lucy before continuing.
Hopefully with Lucy’s editorial wisdom and insight, I’ll be able to make this mss my best one yet!!
Now I really wish I could drink some champers!!!
