Heart of Flame - an update at last
Those of you who've been reading this blog for a while may be wondering what was happening to my Arabian Nights romance novel Heart of Flame, which was finished over a year ago, had the advance paid, was approved by the publisher .... and then did not appear.
Yeah, I was wondering too. In the end I felt I had to act.
Yesterday, after the legal processes were completed, rights to Heart of Flame reverted to me. And I received a very nice note from the editor wishing me luck in placing it elsewhere. So I'm back - not to square one - but to looking for a publisher for it. Hey ho:- the joys of writing.
I would like to apologise. To everyone who was looking forward to reading it. To the people who entered the cover-art competition back in December. To the editor - whom I know was going through all sorts of personal difficulties which meant she just couldn't give my book the attention needed. I feel sad it didn't work out.
But relieved to make a fresh start now.
