Doubt, the Writer’s Menace
Today I wanted to share a quick story about how I got my debut Harlequin Romance/Mills & Boon True Love, Second Chance to Wear His Ring published from first chapter to full manuscript and several revisions. I’m going to take you on the emotional rollercoaster ride I’d been on, so strap in and enjoy.
Welcome to the 5 day Mini Blog Blitz for Mum’s The Word by Lorraine Turnbull, organised by Rachel’s Random Resources.
Mum’s the Word starts with a murder, but although the tense and tantalising question from the beginning has to be ‘Does she get away with it?’, the novel is peppered with everyday life and some good old fashioned Scottish humour. I didn’t want to put readers off with descriptions of blood and gore or gratuitous violence; life is tough enough at the best of times, so many hours of reading, rereading and rewriting took place to achieve the right sort of balance. Yes, it’s a book for women – only women can truly understand the hollowness of an empty marriage, of working in what is primarily a man’s world and facing their golden years knowing the best is behind them. But I hope the story is also uplifting and holds the hope that no matter what age we are, we can all hope for a ‘happy ever after’.
I’m pleased to be able to share a guest post from Patrick Haylock, part of the mini blog blitz organised by Rachel’s Random Resources.

Today I have an extract for you, but first we’ll see what the book is about…
Jessie was a shop worker dreaming of the big time, then YouTube found her. But staying in the limelight requires meticulous management: pop stars are made not born.
With awards night approaching, the pressure’s on for Tito, Jessie’s manager, to whip her into shape. Getting so close wasn’t in the contract, but then neither was him being murdered in Spain.
Alone and scared of the negative publicity, Jessie turns to Mack, her account manager at Eternal Forever, the UK’s first digital legacy management agency. But Mack’s got his own issues: the company’s fast running out of cash, his key developer’s on the turn and a blogger’s suicide looks suspicious.
With the assistance of J-Pop, Mack’s assistant and wannabe reality TV star, Jessie turns sleuth. But in a world where everybody’s watching, it’s hard to escape. Reputation is everything and some people will do anything to protect it.
