Jeff-Dog's stare can bore a hole through anything...




Jeff-Dog is staring at me from the doorway. I haven't looked. I just know he is. He wants something, and his stare is almost physical. I'm going to get my camera ready and suddenly whip around and take a pic before he can move. Getting ready now... click!!! Heh - here he is:

Herewith 'Out from Under the Polar Bear - a Romantic Comedy' - (Goodness me - where does the time go? Sorry, blog, for neglecting you...)

 

Stephanie Lawry has an unsuitable fiance, claustrophobia, and a disquieting rash...

Jack Redmond tries hard to be a good father to his children despite his ex-wife's attitude problem, and his mistakenly-gained drunken-perv reputation.

Add in Steph's bolshie parents, Jack's too-bright children, an old lover, a couple of rescued dogs, and a manky polar bear, and it's no wonder the games people play get out of hand.

Will Steph learn the rules of the relationship game in time to win Jack, or are the stakes too high?


Katie Fforde (best-selling rom com author and President of the Romantic Novelists' Association) said of 'All His Own Hair': 'Susan Alison handles difficult issues with quirky humour and uplifting results.'

Jill Mansell (best-selling rom com author) said of 'White Lies and Custard Creams': "Susan Alison has written a lovely, quirky romp packed with off-the-wall characters - original, intriguing and great fun!"

(To give you some idea of length - 'White Lies and Custard Creams' is 83,700 words long and 'All His Own Hair' is 87,300 words long. Out from Under the Polar Bear is 95,000 words long.)


Susan Alison is the Katie Fforde Bursary Award winner for 2011. She has won competition awards for short fiction and sold numerous stories to commercial publications. Her fiction concentrates on the relationships humans forge with each other (and quite often with their dogs). She is a freelance artist.

More possible pics for RNA 2013 conf goodie bags...(some romance, some writing)

They were  meant for each other
Knowledge is power
Ballroom of Romance
Togetherness (no reason why ereaders and paperbacks can't mix)
Give us a kiss, luv!
They couldn't decide on next week's book

Can't decide which pic for the greeting card for the RNA conference goodie bag this year (Sheffield 2013)

Writing a novel involves a lot of constructive procrastination

Try hard not to get too involved in your research

Writing involves regular, very heavy thinking sessions

Romance was in the air
Their passion for ballroom said what they couldn't say to each other
I have a few more I'm considering...

Corgi concerns - the Charleston, flying trapeze, and the odd meatball

Corgi flapper
(Her favorite dance songs were Muskdog Ramble, Digger Digger Dog and King Corgi Stomp
)


Trapeze diva
(Mind you, she was a bit of a prima donna when she wasn't on the flying trapeze as well...
)
There may be trouble ahead
(because there's an odd number of meatballs...)

A Success of Schnauzers (this does seem a likely collective term for Schnauzers, I reckon.)


She was always ready for a chat

All ears - they came in handy, these ears - for hearing every last crumb drop - and for taking off smoothly in a high wind...
Schnauzers make natural Santas...
