So Good To Be Here

Ooh, I feel a little like the new child at school, coming along half way through the year, once everyone’s made friends. :-) Although, that’s a slight exaggeration as I do know some of you – waves excitedly at those I know! And I’m very much looking forward to getting to know those I don’t know already.

As you can probably tell, I am thrilled to have been invited to join the Novel Racers. Having looked in from the outside for well over a year – it’s brilliant to finally be here.

So here’s a bit of boring stuff about me ... I’ve been blogging since April 2008. I write, obviously! And this year I’ve sold four short stories – two to My Weekly and two to That’s Life Australia. My novel, which is aimed at the Women’s Commercial Fiction Market, is done and dusted, and almost edited. So I’m presently planning where to send it – which is a very scary thought indeed.

Looking forward to being a Novel Racer!

Amanda (Mandy)
