Early afternoon yesterday I re-checked the email from The Wild Rose Press inviting submissions to the new Love Letters historical anthology – and discovered that the deadline wasn’t today as I thought, but yesterday!

So after a great deal of stomach-knotting and head-aching, and thanks to my wonderful CPs who dropped everything to proof-read my final chapters, I hit send on Dear Julia shortly after midnight. I’m praying the email will be time-stamped at destination, and not in my time zone.

I really enjoyed writing this story. The heroine, Rosalie, is all sunshine and light, and the hero is dark and brooding. What a perfect pair they made – eventually!

Now I just hope the editors at TWRP enjoy it as much as I did.
