Still In The Italian Charts…

Cupcake CafÇ (2)Good news – Cupcake Club, my Italian translation, is number six in the Italian bestseller list of foreign titles this week, still hanging in there! Did I mention how much I love Italy? I got four copies in the post today – first time I’d seen it in the flesh – and it’s just gorgeous, all hard cover and chunky and just fab. Now all I need is to find three Italians living in Ireland who’d each like a copy, because I only need one for myself….tell you what – first three Italian immigrants to get in touch can have ’em!

In other news, still busy on the next book, hope to have first draft finished in the next few weeks, watch this space. And wouldn’t you know it, the schools have just reopened after the summer holidays (which were pretty much a washout here in Ireland this year) and the sun is shining. Typical! Hope it’s shining wherever you are too.

Italy etc

Cupcake CafÇ (2)Here it is – my first Italian translation! Isn’t the cover cute? It’s titled Cupcake Cafe (originally Love in the Making) and it hits the shelves there in July. I’m just back from a wonderful holiday on Italy’s west coast; a few weeks too early to see it in the shops, just bad timing, but it means I’ll have to go back, doesn’t it???
In other news I’ve just signed with Hachette for two more books, so it’s all systems go for the next few months….I don’t want to give too much away about the next book, but I will say that it’s going to be more ambitious in terms of structure than the rest, and I’m also attempting to reduce my characters – usually I’m tearing my hair out trying to keep track of them all, so hopefully I’ll have an easier time of it with this one! Watch this space.
Right, it’s back to work for me – my deadline is looming and that word count won’t grow itself!
