Just wanted to let everyone know I’m going to be sending out one of my infrequent newsletters this Tuesday, Feb. 12. If you’d like to get it, please sign up here. I’m going to try to be better about the newsletter, but it will be a minor miracle if I manage to get one out every couple months. I think my average has been closer to once a year! (She said, hanging her head in shame, lol!)
In other news, if you haven’t yet read What to Do with a Duke, the first novel in my Spinster House series, the e-version is on sale this month for $1.99 at all e-bookstores. For those of you outside the US bookstore range, Kobo UK and ANZ have the title on sale until Feb. 20 as part of their Lovers & Haters promotion–and, no, I don’t know what that means!
Hope everyone is staying warm. Here in the suburbs of Washington, DC, the weather is doing its usual pothole inducing thing–warm one day and frigid the next. I have to consult my weather app frequently–sometimes hourly!–to figure out what to wear. The worst is when we get ice–and that’s in the forecast for this week. Freezing rain–shudder! If that’s indeed what the weather gods give us, I’m going to hide inside–with a good book to read (or write).
Time flies when you’re having fun, and I was quite surprised at how much time had flown since my last overhaul. The biggest issue needing attention was formatting—the site couldn’t be easily read on phones. Since fixing that meant rewriting all the code, it became the perfect time to freshen up the look. I hope you’ll find the site easier to navigate now no matter how you visit: via phone, tablet, laptop, or desktop.
Most of the information here hasn’t changed—except I now have the cover for my Christmas book, The Merry Viscount. (Well, actually my September 24 book, but it’s Christmas themed—my first.) If you’ve read What Ales the Earl, you’ve met the heroine already—Miss Caroline Anderson. As the story opens, she’s coming back from London and an unsuccessful attempt to sell her ale, Widow’s Brew, to a tavernkeeper there, when two drunken bucks commandeer the stagecoach in the middle of a snowstorm and crash it just outside Viscount Oakland’s estate. The ton calls the viscount Lord Devil, but Caro knows him as Nick, her brother’s childhood friend—and her childhood crush.
And guess what? In the course of writing this post, I discovered the book’s now up for preorder at most online bookstores! I’ll be posting an excerpt once copy edits arrive and I get through them, probably around the end of January or the beginning of February.
Thanks for stopping by!
