The Call

The Minxes are celebrating a Call today! Minxy friend Susan Wilson has sold to Mills & Boon Medicals and we are super-excited for her. You can read Susan's call story here.

Three of us Minxes had the pleasure of meeting Susan at the RNA conference last July, and we can honestly say that this couldn't have happened to a nicer, more deserving person. Susan has persevered through four sets of revisions and some lengthy waits on this one, so all aspiring writers can take heart. Don't ever give up! It really could happen to you too.

In other incredible news, Intrigue author Paula Graves has announced on eHarlequin that she has done a six book deal with Harlequin for a five figure sum. Again, proof that perseverance pays and dreams really can come true.

Made a hash of that comment!
Many thanks ladies! It's a real pleasure to be on the Minxes blog. My writing name will be Scarlet Wilson. The book is being published in Sept in the UK but I don't have a title yet.
Hopefully will find out later this week.
Best of luck Maya on your revisions! xx
