My phone started going mad this morning with texts from friends telling me about my, and fellow authors Rachael Treasure, Nicole Alexander and Fleur McDonald’s, LUST IN THE DUST spread in the newly-minted March issue of the Australian Women’s Weekly. I knew it was coming. After all, I’d had a ball doing the photo shoot (thanks, Katie and Alana) and the interview (thanks, Kerry), but it still came as a bit of a shock because I wasn’t expecting the magazine to hit the stands until later in the week.
As thrilling as the AWW’s release is, I have lots of chores to catch up on before this weekend’s Australian Romance Readers Convention in Brisbane, not to mention a book to write, so I decided to spend the morning working and ignoring it all. Yeah, like that was going to happen. By 11-15am, after what felt like a hundred text messages, emails and phone calls, I couldn’t stand it and had to head out to buy my own copy.
Actually, I bought two. Cos, you know, I might wear the first one out or something.
So here I am, in the Australian Women’s Weekly, looking, according to my girlfriend’s husband, a bit Mona Lisa. Hmm, not sure if that’s good or bad but I wouldn’t mind Mona’s popularity!
By the way, in case you’re wondering about all this lusty fantasy, I LOVE my darling other half, Jim.
I just tend to get a bit obsessed by my fictional heroes…
