Hello Smouldering September

It’s a new month. The washout summer is over. Someone has to tell me what happened this summer because I barely noticed it. I was practically chained to my laptop. It didn’t help that it was overcast and rainy most of the time. That’s the British summer for you. LOL. Anyway, enough about the summer. It’s gone now.

Say hello to September, the start of autumn and the first of the ‘ember’ months. It’s time to stoke our reading and writing passions. Things are certainly smouldering gently over here. There are loads of things to keep you fires burning through till December when my book His Treasure comes out.

To kick us off, from today Riverina Romantics are giving away a free copy of Inez Kelley’s book Turn It Up. Visit their blog here for how to win.

If you like your books scorching hot then join the Back to Smut party from 2nd to 7th September at Sizzling BookReviews. There’ll be lots of authors sharing excerpts and giving away freebies. I’ll be sharing racy snippets from my erotic romance WIP Her Weekend Bodyguard. Plus I’ll also be running a contest to giveaway FREE eBooks from some of my favourite erotic romance authors. Make sure you come back and join the fun.

If you’re an aspiring romance author, then you may or may not know that Mill and Boon are running the New Voices 2011 contest from 13th September 2011. It’s the romance writing equivalent of the X-factor or American Idol. It’s the contest the launched my writing career when I entered it in September 2010. My entry Lost Prince Reluctant Bride was shortlisted for call-back and it’s still under review by M&B. Visit their site for more details and get writing. Good luck.

From 15th to 18th September, our friends at Bitten by Paranormal Romance are hosting an 18 and over book bloggers giveaway hop which I’m also participating in. More details to follow.

Throughout the month of September and also for the rest of the year, the Romance Writers of West Africa will be running a monthly contest and giving away FREE copies of books from some of your favourite African Romance authors. September's giveaway is a copy of Myne Whitman's A Love Rekindled. Go to their website for a chance to win.

So as you can see September is certainly going to be a fun month.

Have an ‘emberlicious’ month y’all.


  1. 'Ember' months, smouldering September, how evocative. Time to curl up with even more books. Or time to write? Time will tell.

  2. Yes, it's one of those 'ember' months. ;)
    I hope I can catch up on my reading this month. But then again I've taken up a writing challenge so we'll see. But whatever happens, it'll be a smouldering time.
