Blessing in Disguise (Romance)
3 chapters   —   updated Jul 03, 2011 12:36PM
Description: Unfinished romance - it was rejected by my editor because the situation was 'too risque'. She advised me to try Mills & Boon with it, but they don't like my style so I never finished it. I liked it though. Does anyone else?
The Glass Cliff (Mystery & Thrillers)
3 chapters   —   updated Jun 30, 2011 08:02AM
Description: Unfinished attempt at a horror/thriller type novel. Would love to know what people think about it - I lost confidence when the publisher (Virgin) I aimed at closed their horror line.

This book is a good read, I enjoyed the history and the choice of original patterns, but I didn't like the modern versions of the sweaters.

These are are cute. They are made with as few stitches as possible, which can be a bonus if you want to make them quickly, but also means, when you look at them carefully, they are a little lacking in fine shaping and detail. Depends what you want, b ...more

The most interesting thing about this book was the title - I had an old copy called 10 Little Niggers & had to Google to find out why I couldn't find it on Goodreads. It's been given a new and more suitable title.
