All in the name of research :-)

Okay, you're officially going to hate me - on Thursday I'm off to Cannes for a couple of days. The husband has to see a client and as my brownie point stock is high (see earlier head injury references!) I decided to cash some points in and I'm going too.  :-) 

The other piece of good news is that we are flying from London  as I have BA air-miles to use (accumulated in Tesco, believe it or not!) so I can fit in the Women in Publishing M&B talk the night before we fly. I will pass on any 'secrets of the world of romance novels writing' that the talk promises. 

On Saturday we're planning to see Monaco before we fly back. I'm hoping to soak up the locations for future Modern Heat stories although sadly all the Billionaire Playboys will either be skiing or on their private yachts in the Caribbean.

Oh and apparently because I'm doing research my costs will be tax deductible. I knew there were some advantages to marrying an accountant!

Cannes, Monaco, writing talk? Jealousy doesn't even begin to cover it!

However given your bad luck earlier this year, you deserve something good so make sure you enjoy!

Jackie Ashenden said...

Yes, you're right, we do hate you! ;-) Lucky you, Lorraine. Have a lovely time and take some piccies. I'll be expecting photos. And naturally a small presentation about the talk you're going to. :-)

Oh, so jealous.

Have a great time.


Lorraine said...

Thanks everyone.

I shall prepare a full power point presentation for you, Jackie ;-)
I must work out how to post photos in my blog posts, if blogger help doesn't work I shall be asking you for techie help!

You can ask me. As a former librarian, I'm pretty good at (most) techie stuff.
