So, first things first, it's called, Don't You Forget About Me.
For those of you old enough to remember, this title will immediately have you singing a big 80s hit of the same name. Not that I'm old enough to remember of course (ahem). This book, however, is set very much in the present day, in fact the first time you meet my new heroine, Tess, she's in the office, supposedly working, but instead she's looking at Facebook...
Here's a little taster of what it's about:
* For her ex-boyfriend to stay tragically single forever…
But what if one of those wishes came true?
Tess is heartbroken when Seb breaks up with her and can't help blaming herself. If only she'd done things differently. If only she could make right all her regrets... But she can't. It's over. She has to forget about him. Drunk and upset on New Year's Eve she wishes she'd never met him.
But when she wakes up to discover this dream has come true, she realises she has a chance. To do it all over again. And to get it right this time…
Other big news is my last book, You're The One That I Don't Want is being made into a movie. I met with the producers last April and it's currently being adapted into a screenplay by a wonderful screenwriter in LA. I've read some of the pages so far and it's brilliant. Very, very funny. I've been having lots of fun imagining who is going to play Lucy and Nate, as well as picking out my dress for the red carpet...
This past year also saw my first books, What's New, Pussycat? and Going La La being republished. I updated them with new introductions, and my UK publishers gave them beautiful new covers. So if you didn't get to read them the first time around, check them out.
I was also thrilled to be asked to contribute a short story to Jane Austen Made Me Do It, a Jane Austen anthology. I wrote a sequel to Me and Mr Darcy, called Me and Mr Darcy Again which was a lot of fun.
I've also started my new book. It's going to be book number 10. Can you believe it? TEN BOOKS! That's crazy! This new book is going to be the first in a new series featuring a heroine called Ruby Miller. I don't want to give too much away at this stage, not even the title, but it's something I've been thinking about for a long time and I'm very excited. Fingers crossed it will be hitting the book shelves December 2013, which seems very far away, but actually isn't. Especially when I have 350 pages to go.
Well, that's all my news for now. I'll update you when I have more. Until then, a huge thanks to all my readers, I couldn't do this without you! Now, best get back to writing those pages...
