Well, it's done...

Yeah!  I'm very happy to have sent the book off to my editor.  I'm starting a new book on Monday (or rather doing revisions on a book I wrote a long time ago that Harlequin bought for the Modern Romance Extra - used to be Temptation - line).  I'm also over the moon because The Greek's Christmas Baby is on both Bookscan's 100 Top Selling Romances and Waldenbooks 10 Bestselling Series Romance list.  And Goodness Had Nothing to Do With It made it on Amazon's Top 10 New Releases list.  So, I'm just celebrating all over the place right now.

Great news about finishing the book Lucy! I read The Greek's Christmas Baby now I just have to sit down and write a review - it was very emotional, which I love. These days I find a lot of stories are more about the physical, which I don't mind at all, but it usually means the story isn't as emotional and I don't connect as well to it. Your books are a blend of both, and that's why I love them so much!

That's happy news about the success of your stories - I hope you managed to get in a little bit of a break before starting up again. I will be looking for Goodness this week. And you know how anxious I am for Willing -LOL. All the best in 2006!

Thanks, Stacy! I love strong emotion and actually, it's my tendency to go overboard in that area that can get me in trouble with my Brava books sometimes. But I keep trying for those deep stories I love so much. LOL

Hugs,
Lucy

Lucy,

I firmly believe that emotion is what sets your books apart from many other authors' -- both the heroine and the hero. "The Greek's Christmas Baby" certainly proves that. If we were to take out the hero's emotions he would come across as an arrogant.... Instead we read about a hero who is trying to understand what is going on around him and put together the "puzzle" that is his wife.

Still need to find a copy of "Goodness Had Nothing to DO With It."

Thanks, Lidia...that's the nicest thing you could say to me. Really! I love writing "hot" but it has to be emotional to be relevant to me. I'm not saying I don't enjoy reading the other. I do...but when it comes to writing, a story that isn't deeply emotional does not interest me.

Hugs,
Lucy
