One of the nicer partsof being a writer I have discovered is meeting like minded people. A very good way to do that is to join the RNA or Romantic Novelists Association.
Up here in Northumberland, we have a very reasonably active chapter and the infomation is always inspiring.One writer said that the words flowed out of her after the last meeting. Anyway, most of the RNA Northumberland showed up today. We were able to celebrate my book as well as Jan Minshull's first book -- Coast to Coast. Her book has not arrived from the publishers, but it involves the Coast to Coast walk and I am really looking forward to reading it. Janet MacLeod Trotter's next book is being launched in June and Benita Brown's in September. A good time had by all.
Tomorrow I am down in London visitng my editors -- a perk of the job and something I have been longing to do for awhile. I shall finally get to see the hallowed ground of the M&B office as well as lunching with two editors whose advice I really respect.
