The clocks went back last weekend. That means everyone in the UK got an extra hour in bed on Sunday morning, which was good news. The bad news is that it now gets dark just after tea, and there’s a definite nip in the air. That’s a good reason to stock up with plenty of nibbles and settle down to some quality reading and writing time. I was snowed in for days on end during the early part of this year, and that’s when I worked on my latest release for Harlequin Mills and Boon. Weight of the Crown is set in a hot, exotic fictional country. It was wonderful to have the best of both worlds while the weather was bad. I could enjoy the snow with my family until it got too cold and wet, then scurry inside to curl up beside the fire with either my trusty Neo or good old pencil and paper. It was a lovely indulgence to spend time writing about a land where the air was perfumed with roses and the sun was warm.You can read more about Weight of the Crown on my website, http://www.christinahollis.com and check on the progress of my Big Blog Tour here: http://rbpp-ch.blogspot.com/
To celebrate the UK launch of The Italian’s Blushing Gardener I’m blogging over on http://jauntyquills.com on Friday, 5th November and my monthly slot at http://www.authorsoundrelations.blogspot.com is on Sunday 14th. Then on 17th November I’m being interviewed by the Minxes on http://minxesofromance.blogspot.com. I’d really love you to drop by and post a comment, for the usual bribe of a signed copy!
