Come chat with me live and see where I live and write!

Hello, lovelies! Last month, I got a really cool email from the folks at Wattpad asking if I would take part in a global campaign to bring authors even closer to their readers. It’s called #WhereIWrite. Here’s the description:

#WhereIWrite is a global project started by the Hachette Book Group that aims to celebrate writers and the places where they create. Each month for the rest of the year, Hachette will be turning over the keys to their project to various other publishers and writing platforms to allow their creators to share the spaces that inspire them to create the content their readers love most.

Throughout July, Wattpad is running the #WhereIWrite project, and they asked me to host a session. So of course I said yes!

I will broadcasting live this Friday, July 31 at 12 noon ET (6 p.m. Central European Time, which is my time). If the weather cooperates, I plan to show you a bit of my town and one of my favorite cafes to write in. If the weather sucks, I’ll show you my office and balcony, and maybe do a reading. I’ll also make a special announcement. 🙂

The broadcast takes place on an app called Periscope. You can download Periscope for iPhone here and download it for Android here. Once you’re there, search for my name and you should be able to follow me.

If you want to chat with me live, you’ll be able to type messages into the app, and I can answer them. And if you like the broadcast, you can touch your screen and little hearts will appear, showing me I’m doing an okay job and not letting my nerves get the best of me!

I spend most of my days talking to myself, so I hope you’ll join me and save me from doing that online! If you’re not able to join for the live broadcast, you should be able to see a recording of it on WhereIWrite.tv within a couple of days.

Hope you enjoy it (and I don’t make too big a fool out of myself!).

How to read my London Legends Christmas novella for FREE!

Hands up…how many of you have heard of Wattpad? It’s an amazing website that connects readers with free stories. Millions of people visit the site, and you can find loads of great stories — including Unwrapping Her Perfect Match.

I’ll be publishing one chapter every Monday and Friday between now and Christmas. Of course, if you want to read more than two chapters a week, you can always buy it. 😉

Most people download the Wattpad app and read that way, but you can also read on the website. You can leave comments on stories, vote for them, share them, and — if you use the Wattpad app — you can even create quote art so you can share your favorite quotes from stories. As an author, I can add videos and photos, which I’ll do for a few chapters. (I’ve added a video to get you in the Christmas mood for chapter one. Click on that link and look under Media on the right-hand side.)

Whether you’re already on Wattpad or new to it, I hope you’ll check out Unwrapping Her Perfect Match and help me spread the word. I’m hoping the site will help introduce my London Legends to a whole new audience!

Unwrapping Her Perfect Match’Twas a week before Christmas, and at the auction house…

At six foot one, Gwen Chambers has felt like a giant her whole life. She’s a calm, capable nurse saving lives in a busy London hospital, but healthy men give her heart palpitations. When larger-than-life rugby player “Little” John Sheldon convinces her to bid on him in his team’s fundraising auction, she discovers how pleasurable heart palpitations can be.

A rugby player was stirring, with desire no one could douse…

John has wanted Gwen since he first saw her, but when he’s injured in a match just before Christmas he suddenly needs her too. Not only can the sexy nurse help him recover, but she might be able to help him look after his daughter—a shy ten-year-old who speaks only French.

But will it be a Happy Christmas for all, and for all a good night?

From decorating the Christmas tree to ice skating at the Tower of London, Gwen helps father and daughter open up and bond with each other—and she bonds right along with them. But when John’s agent calls with a life-changing offer, Gwen has to decide how far she’s willing to go for her perfect match. Will their first Noël also be their last?
