Totally ADDICTED!

That's me! I'm hooked on reading entries on the Mills & Boon New Voices contest website.

Hubby is snoring beside me, I have a headache cos I'm so tired and a massive few days ahead of me, but can I stop? Nope.

I'll just read one more entry and then I'll go to bed....

Promise :)

PS. I entered! Was gonna leave it longer but in the end, I just wanted it out there. Good luck to everyone else who's entering!

Have already said it, but smokin' job lady!

Now you can sit back and enjoy reading the others whilst I still pither about and get my knickers in a twist about it!

Just read your entry and thought it was fab! Have left comments using a strange pseudonym, see if you can guess it!

Jackie Ashenden said...

You rock, Rach. And now everyone else knows too. :-)

Rachael Johns said...

Thanks so much Joanne - cannot wait to read yours. Your get to it :)

You know Susan I am totally at a loss as to who you are. But doing a bit of detective work, I'm guessing Ros Clarke or Hope Springs. Saying THAT I've never been good at guessing who the villain is in crime fiction!

Aw Jackie - you are the sweetest x

Rachael Johns said...

Susan - I'm taking back Ros Clarke. Told you I was a hopeless detective, I've just seen she's entered and I don't think you were or have yet? Correct me if I'm wrong - lol!

Anita Joy said...

Good luck, Rach!! I've been trying not to look because than II will have to read them all, lol. Last thing I need is another place to procrastinate - but now I'm going to have to have a peak....

Cat Schield said...

Rachel, your entry was wonderful!! And I'm addicted to reading too! What a fun contest!

Cathryn Brunet said...

Fab entry, Rach. But I expect that from you!

It's fascinating to read the different entries and compare them to one another. I'm finding the ones with strong voices really stick out. Even if they have faults, for some reason they feel more entertaining.

Sally Clements said...

Loved your entry, Rach! Well done for entering, I reckon you'll go far!!

Angie Peters said...

Your entry was FAB, Rach! Well done on entering. I haven't read a lot of the entries yet, but yours stands out as one of the best so far that I've read. I agree re: entering early. I was planning on holding off, too but suspected I might lose my nerve if I waited any longer.

Aideen said...

Rach,

Have read your chapter and I've got to say that your voice seems very well suited to Sweet if this is anything to go by. Loved it, both characters were real people with real emotions/thoughts and I would absolultey love to read what comes next.

Well done on subbing, and such a wonderful chapter at that. Fingers crossed for you.

Rachael Johns said...

Oh Anita - it is a total time-waster but it's so fun!!! Are you going to enter!? Do let me know when you do, so I can read yours :)

Rachael Johns said...

Cat - thanks for popping by! And HUGE congrats for your recent sale. I've been a little quite on eHarl but heard on the grapevine :)

Rachael Johns said...

Hey Cathryn - it really is fascinating isn't it. Reckon M&B are genius's for thinking it up!

Rachael Johns said...

Thanks heaps Sally - can't wait to read yours :)

Rachael Johns said...

Aw Angie - those lovely words mean so much! LOVE LOVE LOVED your chap too - so original!

Rachael Johns said...

Aideen - thanks so much! I'm really happy to aim for Sweet now. Writing all out sex scenes always made me stress about who'd be reading them in the future (if they ever DID get published) - LOL!

Are you entering the contest!?

Lacey Devlin said...

Fabulous entry Rach! Congrats! Not that you need me to tell you since you're currently Most Popular ;). I haven't been able to leave a message there yet but you can bet the second I can find my password (uh, yes, lost it already) I'll be gushing all over your chapter too.

Guess I've been rumbled!

Janette Radevski said...

I LOVE LOVE you.... and your chapter too. A formal apology for being a crappy CP and being absent from blog world (and this one in general).

But once again, well done am mucho proud of you chickie

Rachael Johns said...

Aw thanks Lacey!!! Still hoping we're gonna get to read yours soon :)

Susan - LOL - maybe I'm not as bad a detective as I thought after all!!

Aw Janette - I love you too x
