Freaking out!

So, as a subscriber to the Mills and Boon reader service my books have just arrived.
Drumroll please......
And my book is amongst them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

All of a sudden this seems real and completely terrifying!
People are actually going to be able to read my book and comment on it!  Oh NO!
What if they hate it???
I'm also not sure when I will receive my author copies to give to my family, friends and the people the book is dedicated to.  I'm hoping they won't take long.
In the meantime I will sit here shaking, waiting to see if on the 1 August someone will put a review of my book on the Mills and Boon website.
The thought petrifies me!


  1. Hi Scarlet:

    Are you sure your book is coming out on August 1st? I could not find it on Mills and Boon UK or Mills and Boon Australia, or Amazon USA. I did see it on Amazon UK for sale as a hard cover for release on 2 September. Amazon UK does not show your book as being available at all as a Kindle.


  2. Hi Vince
    My book comes out officially in the UK on 2 September, but members of the reader service subscription get the books 2 months in advance - which is why I got my hands on it today!

  3. Have started reading, love it! Stop panicking!!

    Am so excited for you :-)

  4. Yep, freaking out stops now. People will love it. :-)

  5. Stop freaking my dear!! The editors love you and that is HALF the battle! You wouldn't have made it this far if you didn't have something special :)

  6. But I'm still scared! Thanks for the support ladies, it means a lot!

  7. Look at that gorgeous book! Chill your boots chick, people are going to love it. I've never brought a medical in my life, this going to be my very first one! Congrats, enjoy this. xx

  8. Whoop whoop! Congrats!

    I hear you - when my debut was out last year, I very nearly lost it. :) Wine helps!

  9. Joanne and Talli, still feeling very sick. Will have to wait until 1 Aug, the book will appear on the Mills and Boon website and be open for review. Terrifying!

  10. Can't wait to see you on the shelves!

  11. Yay! How EXCITED are you? - Well deserved. Go girl, go! Caroline x

  12. YAY!!!!!!!!!! No one is going to hate it! They're going to LOVE it!
