Now that I have your attention--lol, I just want to say thank you. As some of you may know, I sold my last two Warner books based on a 25 word high concept pitch--and got interest from eight movie production companies! I'm still waiting with bated breath to see if anyone is going to offer a movie option for There Goes the Bride, but even if it doesn't happen, just to get that much interest told me I was onto something. I wrote a workbook on how to write a high concept and the response from authors has been overwhelming. I just want to say thank you to everyone who has purchased a workbook. You guys are the greatest and my deepest hope is that the workbook will inspire high concept books for all of you. I'm almost out of copies, and because of my schedule it will be some time before the second edition comes out. You can order your copy @ www.loriwild.com while supplies last.

For the readers out there, here's a sneak peek at There Goes the Bride, the book that caused all the ruckus.

Legend claims this antique Irish wedding veil
can grant your heart’s deepest desire.
But be careful what you wish for…


The moment Texas socialite Delaney Cartwright touches her veil, she knows she can’t go through with her wedding. And it’s not just because she envisioned a stranger’s dark eyes and irresistible lips the second her fingers touched lace. But she can’t simply call it off. This wedding to her nice, predictable childhood friend is the social event of the season (not to mention her mother would freak). So she hatches an escape plan: she’ll hire her own kidnapper. How hard could it be? After all, she already had a practice run when she abducted her fiancé for a night of romance. Okay, so she accidentally grabbed the wrong man. It wasn’t her fault Detective Nick Vinetti with the sizzling and oddly familiar eyes and crossed her path—and looked game for all kinds of sexy fun. Now, with an altar to avoid and a cop to dream on, this runaway bride is feeling for real—and hoping a little Irish magic will unveil the true destiny of her heart.

**Off topic but...**

OMG, Natalie... I clicked on your profile because I have a friend in Canada with your name.. :) I wanted to see if it was her... And I just noticed you're in Cape Town! I live in SA too. In Durban. How cool is that! And you love shopping and books too.

I love meeting people from my country that love reading romance because it really doesn't happen often. I noticed you are on Skype too...!

Anyway, just wanted to say hi and hope you're having a great day! ;-)

Its soo hot in Durban today. :)

Hi right back at you Rika,

I totally agree with you on the lack of romance lovers in S.A, I moved to Cape Town from Scotland 4 1/2 years ago and it was SUCH a shock to my system, as I couldn’t believe the looks I received (and the prices) whenever I went shopping for romance novels :) but hey I soon got over it as needs must !! Also the amazing weather and shopping centres over here more than makes up for it ;-)

I hope you're having a great day too! ;-)
