It is a beautiful Sunday in Melbourne. I am ignoring the weather bureau's threat of showers along with the dark clouds swooping in.
I've been reading Vengeance Born Kylie Griffin's debut novel and it's absolutely riveting. Spectacular plot, realer than life characters who you care about from page one. Well done Kylie! Love it!
I'm plodding my way through revising my current WIP while my latest story tries to intrude. With our Melbourne Romance Writers Guild meeting fast approaching, I have to get a move on to reach the goals I've set.
Goal setting keeps you on track, there is a great blog about it on the MRWG website. You can only fiddle with that same piece of work for so long before you have to release it out into the world to sink or swim.
There has been a load of reports telling me that, in the not too distance future, everyone will have a reading device, Kindle, Sony or Ipad, and the paperback will be a thing of the past. While I can see the advantages of these devices I can't see them replacing paperbacks. I personally love having the book in my hand and the excitement of picking it up at the shops. What do you think? Is the paperback on the way out?
I hope the words are flowing for all writers and thanks to all the readers who support romance.
Have a great week and bye for now,
