A thank you

As some of you may know I have been contributing to Trashionista (a book review website published by Shiny Media) on a weekly (and voluntary) basis with my column ‘Helen’s Heroines'. I am extremely excited as from today my writing for the site has increased. I will be posting two posts a day – books news, reviews and various other book related stuff as well as my regular column.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to all the Novel Racers for being so supportive of me since I joined at the beginning of last year. I know this isn't about my novel but my dream of writing features has been running parallel with the fiction. There are a lot of ifs. If I hadn't picked up Kate Harrison's book, if I hadn't googled her name and found the race, if I hadn't the guts to set up a blog, if I hadn't then come across other sites and then offered to write a review for Trashionista and so on and so on. Without the Racers and the support you have given me I would NEVER have got this writing job. I feel like it is a huge milestone in my writing career plan.

It's fab news, and it's what you said: if YOU hadn't picked up Kate's book; if YOU hadn't had the guts to set up the blog. You've done really well. You shown lots of courage doing all these things.

Well done.
