What am I thankful for this year? I'm darned thankful that my latest submission to Harlequin Mills & Boon has been accepted by my editor! Whew, what a relief. Just in time to be thankful on Thursday.
I have to say I'm sorry for not keeping up with the blog, though. I'll try to do better! My time has been divided, not evenly, with work as a hospice nurse, a mom, a wife, and a writer, plus trying to get all of the things in that we must do in life. Making my own Christmas/holiday cards this year has been on the list, but as of right now, I might get them done by next year.
Thanks to those who have kept up with me. My new book is going to be: The Emergency Doctor's Chosen Bride. The next book though will be out soon, in Feb 2008 and that is: The Nurses' Little Miracle. Look for it in UK bookstores and you can order online at: www.millsandboon.uk.com
love Molly

First Book Is Out! Amazon.com

Happy May everyone. The month has finally arrived and my first book in hardback is available at www.amazon.co.uk or via my website: www.mollyevans.com and click on the picture of the book. The blue cover is of the paperback which will be out in July.
This is a new look for the Medical Romance line and I love it! I am glad that The Surgeon's Marriage Proposal was included in the new covers.
I've finished my second book now, which will be out next Feb and is titled: The Nurse's Little Miracle. I'm thrilled that this book was accepted and am working hard on the next book. With some luck and hard work, I hope to have four books out next year, but we'll see.
2008 is also the 100th anniversary for the publisher, Harlequin Mills & Boon, so there are bound to be celebrations all year long.
Join us in happy reading!

My first contract--Getting It!

Today I had the best news from my editor at Mills & Boon. She's thrilled with my latest book and has made the offer to buy it. It will be titled: The Nurse's Little Miracle and will be out around March 2008. She's also offered me a two book contract, which is a first for me, too. That's such a thrill. My first contract!
So many things in life are little things. But it's important to celebrate the little things and the big things. Or maybe that was just an excuse to have my husband take me out to dinner to celebrate!
The biggest part that pleased me is that I feel as if I finally "got it." The writing part, the editing part, the revising part. All of it. Each part is important on its own, but all together to make the final package worth while, it what counts in the long run. Some of us take longer than others to get it and I sure took enough time, too. Ten years to be exact. Ten years to "get it!"
But it was worth it. Never ever quit. Because at the end you'll have, as my editor puts it: a cracker of a story! that the publisher will put their money up for.
Happy writing,
Molly Evans

Medical Romance-What It's All About

So you've heard of medical romances, even heard that two are nominated for RWA's prestigous Rita award, but . . . what are they?
With the success of shows such as ER, House, Bones, CSI, and others, medical romances are taking off. But they've been around for about thirty years. So why haven't you heard of them? They are primarily distributed in the UK and not available in bookstores in North America. (This is a hint to start sending letters to Harlequin's offices to ask for NA distribution).
Medical romances rock! They take the best of romance and the best from medical shows and spin them together into the most awesome, emotion packed short fiction you've ever read.
For the curious, keep your eyes peeled for The Surgeon's Marriage Proposal, by yours truly, Molly Evans. This book is available as a hardback in May and then in paperback in July. I'm so fortunate that it's coming out in both formats.
For other medials available right now, check out www.eharlequin.com and click on Harlequin scroll down to medicals and buy a few good reads.

Happy Birthday to Molly

well, it's a little bit late now, but my birthday was the end of January. In the midst of it, I was on a deadline for my second book. The good news is that I did get that second book completed and out the door (via email) to my editor. Whew! Big sigh, there.
I do think that perhaps the second book had more angst surrounding it than I had with the first book. Although I wanted to sell that book very badly, I was more relaxed about the writing. This time I took on a challenge as well as a deadline (self imposed) and wanted to do it right. At first I thought the book was only going to be about half the length I needed it to be, but as I wrote it and added the dimensions and emotional depth required, it made it over the page count! Another golden moment.
So keep those good vibes coming my way that the second book is accepted as easily as the first. I'm prepared for a ten page revision letter, but I've done it once, I know I can do it again!
