Not one to do things by halves, I picked the Romantic Times Convention as my first step into the ‘writers’ world.
I received my first acceptance email in late February 2009. One Night In Bangkok was accepted by Noble Romance Publishing and would be released April 11, 2009. As a short story I knew the edit process wouldn’t take long but the thought of going from unpublished to published in just over a month left me speechless. I was fortunate enough to work with Jill Noble on my story and the things that woman taught me in that month were astronomical. She walked me though each step, from cover art request to final line edits, we walked that road together and having that personal touch made that first time not only memorable but enjoyable. I couldn’t have asked for a better editor or publisher to start out with.
With the excitement of my first release I packed my bags ready to attend the Romantic Times Convention as a published author. Oh my! Way to jump in at the deep end! I’d never seen anything like it in my life. The number of people was a little overwhelming but everyone was so nice and welcoming and more than happy to chat. I met writers that remain friends to this day, who I’m always thrilled to see in person each year at RT. It truly was a great experience for a first time author. Since then I’ve only missed one year, 2010. In 2009/2010 our world turned upside down once more.
Rhian is the alter ego of a stay-at-home mother of four. With motherly duties rapidly dwindling Rhian is able to make use of the fertile imagination she used to keep herself sane for all those years of slavery. Having spent some years living overseas and visiting tropical climates has helped inspire some steamy stories. With the help of Mr. Muse, Rhian spends her days writing and most of her nights as well.
