Monday Minx Newbie

Today’s special minx announcement is…

ME!

Lacey Devlin has joined the Minxes in all their glory, and no, I didn’t have to bribe them with money!

I’ll admit I’ve shied away from CPs in the past because I was sure that I didn’t have enough time to stop them from trying to murder me when I wasn’t able to get a critique done on time, but that was before I was introduced to the Minx system!  I’m a lucky girl and I’ve got all their emails now, so there are no “take backs”.

As this is my first official post as a Minx I’m suppose to dazzle you with fascinating facts about myself, and oh boy, where to start ;)

For anyone who doesn’t know me, I’m Australian, and in my spare time I wrestle crocodiles… or perhaps I write.  Actually, I think the more people between me and a crocodile the better.  That also applies to snakes, spiders, sharks and politicians.

Because I live such a fascinating life I struggled to come up wit a dazzling tid bit about myself that’s never been blogged before, and I came up with two tid bits.  So today I’m going to introduce you to my fur children Lucy and Zoe who are miniature Maltese terriers weighing less than 3kg each.  They are fearless in the face of a dog ten times their size as long as there’s a fence between them.  I’ve spent many hours with them balanced on my lap while I write what will hopefully become a published manuscript.
Zoe and friend.

Lucy who likes to sleep in
contorted positions best












To give you an idea of their size against a pig ear.
I started writing as a wee lassie no bigger than your thumb and those stories were fantastically terrible—a child genius I am not.  Then, I discovered the romance genre and Mills & Boon.  Thousands of books later my obsession has grown and there’s a lot less room in the house.  As I continue toward my dream of being a published M&B author I’m thrilled that I’m now surrounded by wonderful women who are willing to read my work, however fantastically terrible it may or may not be.

Welcome to the Minxes Lacey, we're very pleased to have you as part of the group...not to mention your gorgeous dogs who can join my three Minx Mutts (although as they are pure bred perhaps they won't want to mix with my motley crew ;-)

Francine said...

Aww, Lacey, your furry children are absolutely cuddly! So cute :)

Some of the Minxes have been my CPs in the past and I can honestly say you've got some great CPs in these ladies!

Big hugs to all.

Kerrin said...

well done Lacey! i need to do some hunting of my own for some CP's!

Lorraine said...

Kerrin - I think there are some new groups starting up as a result of the NV comp, I think the details are in the comments section somewhere on the NV site. It's how the Minxes came about - we came together after last years comp...

Kerrin said...

Lacey Devlin said...

Caroline - Yay, I'm glad you think so :)

Lacey Devlin said...

Kerrin - There's actually a Facebook site for newbies or something similar and there were some new CP groups starting there. The address is :http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=159378760741421&v=wall.
