Well, thanks Samantha for this opportunity to come on your blog.
I used the same editor, an old uni friend, but whereas I had written half of the book last time around before she saw any of it, this time she got it almost chapter by chapter. I am not sure that was necessarily a good thing, although she certainly pointed out loads of issues along the way, which helped me going forward. As I worked my way through the second half of the book, she received the chapters in tranches. Next time I might go the whole hog and not let my editor see it until I’ve finished it! I realise this is the more orthodox approach.
Twelve people. Twelve star signs.
Sagittarius - Holly, a travel writer, visits Tuscany to research her next book. Seeking help when her car breaks down, she gets more than assistance when Dario, a vineyard owner, puts temptation in her path. Disappearing without explanation, he proves elusive. Bruised, Holly tries to put it behind her until a chance encounter brings her feelings to the surface again.
Capricorn – Holly’s fiancé, Tom misses her while she is in Italy and turns to an internet chat room for solace. His construction business is under threat, but could foul play be at work?
Gemini - Holly’s sister, Lucy, a serial man-eater finally meets her match, which puts her long-term relationship and career in jeopardy. Cheating she discovers, can have devastating consequences.
Libra - Holly’s uncle Jack, an eminent prosecutor, juggles a difficult teenage son with his high profile career and finds himself lacking. When his son’s school work starts slipping, he decides he needs to take control, but it’s not long before the balls all come tumbling down and Jack finds his family on the wrong side of the law.
One event binds them all…
