Deadline closing!

Eight days until my deadline, and around 11,000 words to go. Eeek! :o) It's doable, but ordinarily I wouldn't be up against it like this, I'd already be editing by now. Unfortunately I've been ill so I've been crawling along with a box of tissues in tow. I need to speed it up. Hoping for a better week ahead. If you're taking part in the Sven challenge, keep at it!

I've got some fun plans for April once this deadline is behind me, including some books to give away here. It sounds as if DIRTY GIRLS is coming very soon, so there will be news about that anthology. (The Amazon blurb seems to suggest it's an all-American antho, but it includes at least two contributions by Brits, myself and the very talented Madelynne Ellis.) I'm also going to start posting excerpts and/or fun facts about RECKLESS. Meanwhile, it might be a bit quiet here while I hunker down and finish up my LOVING ON THE EDGE trio of shorts. Oh, I'll post about them too, once I'm done with them. ;-)

Ooh, good luck with your deadline, Saskia! Cheering you on! x

Thanks, Nikki! And good luck to you for yours. It's that time of year, I guess. :)

You two ladies both have scary deadlines. Good luck with them. I meanwhile am trying to wrap myself around a vampire or two.
