Sadly, I wasn't there on Saturday night at the Ball to see the awards, but was so pleased to hear that Carmel Harrington (best romance ebook), Linn B Halton (innovative author) and HarperImpulse (publisher innovation) were winners! Massive congratulations to them, and all the other nominees and winners.
It was the first time I had attended the Festival and it was wonderful to chat to readers, make new friends and meet face to face so many of the people I chat to on Facebook and Twitter every day.
I did a reading from 'Summer of Surrender' (a first), sold nearly all the books I had taken with me, signed autographs (another first!) and got home to find a wonderful review (which brings me on to horses!). Thank you so much Kinky Book Klub -
'Between the book cover and the description I thought I was in for a hot and steamy book, instead I found a beautiful story. Don’t get me wrong it has it’s hot moments, but this book is about the sensual side, letting go, the difference between submission and surrender, between what’s healthy and loving and what is twisted and controlling.....'
' ....the scenes with the horses are really well written, James is a bit of a horse
whisperer, Kezia is just loud, jerky and the antithesis of James. It makes for some really lovely scenes.'
You can read the whole review here at <Kinky Book Klub>. This review really captures what the book is about, and by coincidence I recently wrote about the part horses play in my writing over on <Tea Cooper's blog>. This is the horse, Flash, that plays such an important part in the book (renamed Red!).
If you want to find out more about the story, I'm on tour! Please stop by and say hello, and enter the giveaway -
