There was no blog last week because I’ve been busy trying to finish the book and ALLELUIA! It is done! All 106 000 words of it. Yay! Can’t believe I made deadline. It’s been such a race. A killer race. I’m nearly dead on my feet. Any more stress and I’d be in a coma.
To celebrate my upcoming rest period, I have two things to share today.
Firstly, release date for, “The Girl in the Hard Hat” will be January, 2013. So mark that one in your diaries.
And secondly, something a little more exciting…. Now that I’ve FINISHED THE BOOK, I finally feel confident to release the blurb courtesy of my publisher. Here it is…
The Girl in the Hard Hat
By Loretta Hill
To tame a bad boy you will need:
a. One hard hat
b. 350 sulky FIFO workers
c. A tropical cyclone
Wendy Hopkins arrives in the Pilbara to search for the father who abandoned her at birth.
Getting mixed up in construction site politics at the Iron Ore wharf just out of town was not high on her ‘to do’ list.
But when she takes a job as their new Safety Manager she becomes the most hated person in the area. Nicknamed ‘The Sergeant’, she is the butt of every joke and the prime target of notorious womanizer, Gavin Jones.
Giving up is not an option, though.
For, as it turns out, only Wendy can save these workers from the coming storm, find a man who wants to stay buried and … put a bad boy firmly in his place.
From the author of The Girl in Steel-Capped Boots comes another funny and deliciously romantic tale of a woman in a man’s world.
