Bright Wednesday

“Into a world of wild secrets and deadly pleasures comes a girl whose innocence may  be her greatest strength.”

Isn’t that a wonderful line?

Today has been a bright writerly day. It began with this wonderful review of Glitter Rose by the much beloved and widely read Kate Elliot.

Soon after the postman left me a box that contained my Burn Bright proofs and the presenter brochure for the series (see left). Both gorgeous! As I mentioned on the Burn Bright site, I began writing this book in 2003, around the time I first started working on Dark Space. My agent loved the premise, but I had a 4 book SF series to write and it got pushed to one side and became the book I wrote when I wasn’t writing. Now my long-gestation-baby has teeth, hair and fingernails and I couldn’t be prouder of her.

To top off this already shiny day, my friend and partner in Burn Bright hijinks,Yunyu, had some good news, as did my Stalking Daylight, screenplay co-writer Lynne Jamneck. Would crack some champers if I still drank. White choc shall have to suffice!
