The wall of fame: Lacey Devlin!

First of all, a huge big blogland THANKYOU to Lacey for being a terrific cheerleader for everyone as we have nervously entered the NV competition. Your badges have prettied up all of our blogs and your blog has helped drive traffic towards our entries - you are officially fabulous.

Is that all there is to say?


Lacey Devlin's entry

If you haven't already, head on over to NV and read lacey's own entry into the competition - it's only an absolute cracker of a chapter.
I totally  love it - it's funny and clever, and sparkles with uniqueness. Totally Lacey, in other words.

Go Girl! Lots of Luck. x

Pass the sick bag...

Because I've just pressed send on my entry into this years Mills & Boon New Voices competition.
And I feel as sick as a dog! No breakfast in this house this morning, that's for sure.
It's called Sequins and Secrets, and it's under the contemporary romance catergory.

I've loved reading as many of the chapters that I can as they've gone on over the last week, it's impossible to try to keep up with them all isn't it? I'm tending to read most of the entries under contemporary romance first, as they are more my bag than paranormals or historicals.
Have to say though, I take my hat off to every single person who has entered because it's no mean feat to put your work out there like this.

I must confess to a few personal faves on there so far. Lorraine Wilson, Rachael Blair & Jackie Coates entries all stand out for me, and not just because I know them from blogland, but because I think they shine.

I'm totally convinced that Simon Cowell is going to pop up and laugh my entry off the stage at any moment!

Might mosey on over to Lacey's place to try and work out how to get myself a shiny New Voices entrant badge. Thank you Lacey, you rock!

Well, that's 24 hrs I can't get back.

My name is Joanne & I'm officially addicted to reading the Mills & Boon New Voices competition entries.

Glaringly obvious note to self: Stop reading, start writing.
