Here's the 'Book Trade' story on winning Choc-Lit Publishing's Search for an Australian Star Competition which has just been announced - http://www.booktrade.info/index.php/showarticle/44774

As you can imagine, it's been a wild few days having learned the announcement and its ramifications. I went to a Toastmasters Dinner last night, made an impromptu speech, had a late night and am up early to continue working on my 1960s Lesotho-set diamond smuggling romantic thriller to have in some readable form by Friday.

In the meantime, I'll be posting my introduction on the Choc-Lit Blog. So it'll be a busy day (between school runs and taking my final class of lovely writing students at Caroline Springs Library).

Short-listed for Choc-Lit's Search for an Australian Voice

Very excited!

I've been shortlisted for Choc-Lit's Search for An Australian Star competition for my Regency Intrigue, The Reluctant Bride under my Beverley Eikli name. It won the RW-NZ Single Title competition years ago, the second half has been rewritten numerous times, I've softened the heroine and upped the intrigue and now enough readers have liked it to get it shortlisted. The winner will be announced on Dec 17.
