I sent my latest Viking -- Ivar's story -- working title: Bedded by the Viking off to my editors this morning. It had come to the point where they needed to see it and tell me where the flaws are. I am far too close sometimes.

We then went to see Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. I loved it. Yes,Harrison Ford is older, but they have made Indy age. He just is. SIGH. There were a few parts that could have been cut for pace, but for sheer non stop adventure, it was great. I loved that Marion came back, and I loved the ending. Now when is the dvd out?

My sister says Prince Caspian is excellent, better than the book. So we shall go and see that when it opens in the UK -- mid June, I think.

But now I shall start my single title in earnest.

Amazon has the cover for An Impulsive Debutante up. You can see it here. This reminds me that I need to get the excerpt up on my website. I was going to redo my website but events have over taken me. Anyway, I am very pleased with the cover and think it perfectly illustrates a scene from the book. I have no idea if it is areused cover or not. That doesn't really matter, but what matters is that it gives the feel of the book.

It is my dd's 15th birthday today, so I am enjoying that. Lots of cake and presents.

OOo I can't wait for 'The Impulsive Debutante'!

Wish your dd a happy birthday. 15 already?? Time does fly!

Yes, well I love the cover well Julie. I think it does the story justice which is all you can ask.

And Biddy I can't wait either. I had So much fun writing it and I want to see the readers' reactions to this one. It is Lottie from ACWW's story, and from not necessarily liking her that much in ACWW, she has become one of my favourite heroines.

It is so scary how fast time flies.

Whoo hoo! What a relief and a feeling of accomplishment. I'll bet it never crosed your mind to take a day off now.

Happy bday to your DD.

And I loved Indy, too! :o) (Saw it Friday - Madam's fave scene was the last one, LOL)
