New News! A new release, in a new series, in a new genre!

So what have I been doing lately? Well, I’ve been taking my dog to classes (agility and competition obedience), and I’ve been knitting socks.

Oh, and I’ve been writing! I’ve started a new series, have two books written and working on the third, with a notion of what book four will be. For this series, I’m leaving Regency romance, sticking with the Regency but adding MAGIC.

Are you a Pride and Prejudice fan? Of course you are! But did it always sort of irk you that the bookworm character was such a … drip? Well, it irked me. Let’s face it, these days, if you’re a P&P fan, you’re probably the bookworm of your local circle of friends and family. Don’t you just want to get in there and FIX Mary? So that’s what I’ve done. (I hope that doesn’t bring down on me the wrath of the Janeites. I’m just – refurbishing her a bit. She’s still quite the pedant, I assure you!)

So I’ve begun a series I’ve titled Regency Mage. I describe it as “Pride and Prejudice with a Harry Potter twist”.) In the first book, Mary Bennet, cataloging the library at Bingley’s new estate, finds a book of magic! And so begin her magical adventures, in Mary Bennet and the Bingley Codex.

Coming in August, Mary Bennet and the Wickham Artifact.

And in process and I HOPE to publish in 2019, Mary Bennet and the Beast of Rosings Park, and Mary Bennet and the Shades of Pemberley.

So without further ado, here is a link where you can buy Regency Mage, Book One, Mary Bennet and the Bingley Codex .

And here is the awesome cover!

Still alive, still writing

Hello! I’m still here.

What have I been up to? Oh, the usual. Still writing. Nearing the end of my latest book, in fact. It’s yet another Regency, currently untitled. Remember Lord Charles  in Feather, Arthur’s younger brother? Well, this book is for him. And I’ve actually gone back in time, so this book takes place before Stage. (If you want the specifics, A Feather To Fly With takes place in 1814, and The World’s a Stage occurs in 1817. My current project is taking place in 1815.)

Anyway, to make up for my lengthy absence, here are TWO Jazzy pictures.

So there you have it – I’m still writing and my dog is still beautiful.

Finally!

After too long in the making, here at last is the release of my latest Regency romance novel, The World’s a Stage!

Here’s the cover

stagecovermed

What is it about? Well, here’s the blurb:

All the world’s a stage for Peter Barton, a wandering actor now posing as a gentleman in Regency high society. But his carefree existence is jeopardized when a matchmaking mama tries to snare him for her dowdy daughter. To avoid entanglement and exposure, Peter needs a mistress – or at least someone willing to play the part.

The stage is no place for a lady, but when proper young lady Amy Greenlow is left destitute with a young sister to support, she dares to reinvent herself as the actress “Amadora” and takes the London stage by storm. But all Society knows that actresses are women of no virtue, and a ruthless Marquis is determined to make Amadora his latest mistress and won’t take no for an answer. To discourage his advances, Amy agrees to play another part, that of Peter Barton’s mistress.

For Peter and Amy, the public performance of their pretend affair is the role of a lifetime. Falling in love was never part of the plan.”

And here are some links –

Stage at Amazon

Stage at Barnes and Noble

Stage at Smashwords

And looking back, I see that I announced the upcoming release of my novella, Regency Road Trip, but never came back to verify that the release had actually taken place. Well, it has.  So here are some links to that:

Road Trip at Amazon

Road Trip at Barnes and Noble

Road Trip at Smashwords

So there you have it! We’re all caught up on new releases and I hope you’ll be glad to know that the next Regency is already in the works.

Coming Soon! A novella, Regency Road Trip – with cover reveal

I’m currently in the editing of a novella, which I hope to publish very soon. Regency Road Trip is set in the same world as A Feather To Fly With and portrays the further adventures of several of the characters from Feather.

I have a cover! And here it is –

Update and Feather sale

Gracious, look at the time! It’s half past the end of summer, isn’t it? Tempus fugit, or so they say.

If you follow my blog, such as it is, you’re probably reading this hoping for a new release. Alas, the Work In Progress is still in progress. I’ve also begun a novella that will fall in time between the two novels. But as for a release date for either, that is still very much TBD.

So what was I doing all summer? Oh, a little this, a little that. For instance, I spent my Fourth of July in the hospital having my gallbladder removed. That was a bit of a surprise but it all went well. And I’ve quite recovered from the surgery itself, but in the aftermath and recovery, I lost a lot of strength and stamina and am having to rebuild that. I’m going to the gym five times a week and trying to reach a point where simple errands don’t feel like mountain climbing.

So! I have no new releases on the horizon. Therefore, in a pathetically transparent attempt to get my name back in lights (or an increase in book sales at the very least), I’m putting A Feather To Fly With on sale.

Yes! Starting tomorrow and for one week only, Feather will be available for the low low price of only 99 cents! Mark your calendars! Tell all your friends!

And now as a reward for reading this blog post, here is a nice picture of Jazzy:
