Writing Hot Scenes

Today I’m blogging over at The Romaniacs about writing from female or male point of view, in particular those *hot* scenes.


Do we really know what a man thinks?

More to the point, do we really want to know or are we happy to imagine?

man thinking

Pop over – would be interested to hear your thoughts on this.

All in the Name of Research

In the name of research, we (The Romaniacs) used last night’s RNA summer party to gauge how prepared we were for a weekend in Penrith this July.

With varying degrees of fragileness this morning, we came to the conclusion that we either needed to pace ourselves better or build up our stamina.

It was a fun evening, lovely to catch up with Twitter and Facebook friends and to meet some in real life for the first time.  I was delighted that Evonne Wareham won the Joan Hessayon award as her thriller/romance Never Coming Home has been one of my favourite books this year.
