September's Friday Smut Slot

The end of the month usually means bills, rent, and more bills to be paid. But I've been anticipating the end of September all month long, because this month, in fact RIGHT NOW, my book Wild Card is being featured on the Lust Bites post, right here at blogger.com.

Please skip, swoop, navigate or click your way over to Lust Bites and join in the fun.

This is the first time I've been excerpted at Lust Bites, and my fourth post. I'm finally proficient with blogger, so posting was, dare I say it, easy! I love it.

My other big news is that Mitzi Szereto's anthology Getting Even: Revenge Tales will be launched on November 1. My short story Hurting Hugh is in the collection, albeit credited to Madeline de Chambrey, and it's one I'm particularly proud of. Please watch for the anthology in bookstores, on line and in your neighbourhood.

I've been hesitant to announce that I have a new book contract with Black Lace primarily because I don't have the contract signed sealed and delivered, but happily there are still some people you can trust in the publishing business, and my editor at BL is one of them. I've spilled the beans in my Wild Card excerpt post, so the news is out now! I'm working hard on Amanda's Young Men, which is to be delivered at the end of January, 2008. I'll have more publishing details later, like, when I've had a good look at the contract.

As exciting as it was to sell my first novel to Black Lace,and believe me it was exciting, it's just as or even more exciting to have a second. Madeline Moore has legs! Yay!

You know, the shift from 'hope to be published' to published is a strange one - it happened over a fairly long period of time, in my opinion, but there's no denying that it's here now. I love it. Let me give that more emphasis. I LOVE IT!

Which doesn't mean I have a lot of $$ to pay those bills and the rent with, because I don't. But I can honestly say that life as a working writer is a rich and satisfying one. My association with Black Lace makes me feel like a pampered princess, and being part of Lust Bites is a fascinating and fun experience.

Who could ask for anything Moore?
