Do you write a draft all the way through or go over what you have already written? it doesn't matter as long as it works for you.

Be determined - it took me 12 years to get published and you need to be persistent to achieve your dream. And draw on the support of the romance community. It's a wonderful group of people!(less)

It's a dual time period novel and is set in the Tudor era as well as the present, involving the Seymour family of Wolf Hall. There's lots of lovely history and romance to get my teeth into! Alongside that I am researching my next book which I hope will be a big fat Georgian set story with smuggling and lots of derring do!(less)

“Sebastian stretched. Clara stared. She could not help it. He was still in his breeches and shirt and she was riveted by the deliciously tight fit of the buckskins over his thighs.

"You could avert your eyes," Sebastian said mildly.

"I could," Clara agreed, "but I am not going to."

He smiled. "Hussy."

"I know. But I have waited a long time--”
Nicola Cornick, The Heart of Christmas

“In a letter to Sebastian...
"My brother is preoccupied with affairs of state and all the more suitable of his friends are unavailable at present, which only leaves you..."

Seb winced. The minx. She knew how to deliver a neat insult.”
Nicola Cornick, The Heart of Christmas

“He'll admit to his feelings when he's in his cups."

The valet nodded. "That's true, ma'am. If we could get him drunk."

Clara stifled a laugh. "I am not certain I would want a man who has to be drunk to admit his love for me.”
Nicola Cornick, The Heart of Christmas

Nicola Cornick Hi Elaine!
Truly, Madly, Deeply is the new RNA Anthology of short stories across all different genres of romance. They are then publishing a series of e-books with the print stories and some extras in them. Part 1 features my Regency short story, one from Louise Allen and a historical short story from Elizabeth Chadwick.
Best wishes
Nicola
