Good Deeds Challenge Year 2, Week 20

Welcome to my second Year of Good Deeds, a challenge I set myself during April 2013. I decided to do at least one Good Deed a day for a whole year, now I an into my second year.

New Good DeedsDuring my week I’ll also being updating you on My Kindness Challenge which I’m also doing. I read about a new challenge to make the world a better place to live in. “Speak Kind Words, Receive Kind Echoes” see the inspiration on  The Kindness blog . During my learning process I’m donating money to charity for my slip-ups to make me work harder to achieve results. I earn no money from any of my book reviews, so having little to spare should focus my mind.

August 31st – A lovely sunny day for the last day of August, I went for a long walk and picked up litter along the way. Finished reading Dark Water by Jan Ruth. Am now reading Bend With The Wind by Suraya Dewing

September 1st – It’s the first day of Romancing September and I’m co-hosting the event with fellow author Stephanie Hurt. We are promoting 30 authors and their books in 30 days. We started off promoting Caroline Storer and her book The Roman.

Sent a letter to an aunt whom I haven’t seen for a couple of years, really feel I need to make the time for a visit. Sorted out another family visit, this one to my husband’s aunt.

September 3rd – Bought birthday presents for my God-daughter today. Day 3 of Romancing September and it’s Terry Tyler with her book Round and Round.

September 4th – Helped my Mum pick beans from her garden today. Had a big boost on the book review team and got lots more requests for books. Day 4 of Romancing September and it was the turn of Lizzie Lamb and her book Boot Camp Bride.

September 5th – Had a lovely chat with my hairdresser who have her little girl starting school for the first time on Tuesday, passed on little tips that I found worked for me and left her a big tip.

Let's Call The Whole Thing Off

Where is your home town?

I live in the small market town of Leighton Buzzard in Bedfordshire, UK.

How long have you been writing romance?

I’ve been writing for about fourteen years now, and concentrating on romance novels in the last six or seven.

What is your favourite sub-genre of romance?

I love something light-hearted so it would have to be contemporary romantic comedy.

What is the cause of your book’s Title?

All my books have links to popular song titles and ‘Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off’ perfectly sums up the dilemma my heroine Anna faces in this story.

When was the wedding due?

In less than a week’s time!

How does Anna read Sophie’s diary?

Sophie is Anna’s best friend and flatmate. Anna wants her earrings, the ones she lent to Sophie and wanders into her friend’s bedroom hoping to find them. On the bedside cabinet is a diary which surprises Anna. She didn’t even know Sophie kept a diary. Temptation gets the better of Anna and she can’t resist taking a sneaky peek!

Have you ever been tempted to read someone else’s diary?

Who me? No, never! That would be a terrible thing to do. Although in Sophie’s shoes I’m not sure what I would have done…

Should we all take our posh wedding clothes back to the shops? Or may there be a chance of a wedding?

Oh well, I couldn’t possibly say. You will have to read the story to see if the wedding goes ahead 😉

Tell us what you are working on at the moment.

I’m working on a Christmas novel. It involves lots of mince pies, mistletoe and deep, deep snow!
