Who wants a wedding gown? with Kathy Bosman


OK. I'm not really giving away wedding dresses. But I've got the lovely South African author Kathy Bosman to my blog today as she launches her new sweet contemporary romance Wedding Gown Girl published by Astraea Press. She's also giving away a digital copy to one lucky commenter. So please make her feel welcome. I've also got some photos of wedding dresses from my favourite designer, Yemi Osunkoya at Kosibah. He designed my wedding dress. Over to you, Kathy.

Thank you Kiru, for hosting me on your blog today. I love your books – they are full of passion, deep emotion, and exotic settings and cultures. It’s a privilege to be on your blog.

#RomanticFridayWriters: I Should've Kissed You


Hello everyone! I'm back doing Romantic Friday Writers which means I'm back writing again after a 2-month break. Can someone give me an halleluyah! LOL.
It tell you it feels great to be writing again. It's like chains have been broken and I'm released from captivity. Seriously. :)

Right. Before I get to today's post I've got one quick announcement. 
HIS TREASURE nearly scooped another award. It was a runner-up at the 2012 Swirl Awards in the novella category. You can check out the rest of the winners at the Swirl Awards website. Getting the news has worked wonders in inspiring me again. So a big woohoo!

Now, on to RFW. This week's challenge is to write 600 words of prose or poetry for the theme I Should've Kissed You. 
Since I've been out of the RFW loop for a while I really wanted to participate this week. So I've just written this piece this afternoon. It's going to be part of a Christmas story I'm writing titled His Christmas Wish. It's still very rough and it's longer than 600 words. Sorry. But I hope you enjoy reading it. Feel free to critique it. As always I love your feedback.

Spotlight on Distraction by JL Campbell


Hello readers. I'm pleased to welcome the lovely J.L. Campbell to my blog today as part of her Friendship is Forever VBT. Please leave her a comment to make her feel welcome. You can also download FREE copies of her books for a limited period. Over to you, Joy.

As a writer, I view storytelling as an adventure. In crafting a story, I know what’s supposed to happen at the start, where I want to be at the end, but not every plot point in the middle. The complications add up once the story gets rolling and I hit my stride.
