So, anyway – as I was saying…

Oops, radio silence for a while on this blog.  Never good.  Sorry.  In my defence though it has been an incredibly exciting and busy few months and here are the edited highlights: October 2013 – submit application to favoured publisher, Choc Lit, asking them to consider my MS.
