News, good and otherwise

by on Feb.18, 2012, under Uncategorized

For those who’ve asked about the latest developments at Dorchester Publishing and their impact on the release of A TRYST WITH TROUBLE, I don’t have any word yet, but I’ll post as soon as I hear more.  All I know is that the publisher is “reorganizing and reassessing its product lines” and won’t announce until at least the end of the month whether the book will be released on April 1 as re-scheduled.

Whatever the news from Dorchester, it will not affect my other release, RUINED BY RUMOR. That book is with a different publisher (Carina Press, a division of Harlequin) and it will definitely be coming out on May 21.

Meanwhile, in happier news, A TRYST WITH TROUBLE received a lovely review from inspirational author Dawn Crandall.  To read it, click here.

Regency prophets

Nostradamus? The Mayan Calendar? They had nothing on the prophets of the late Georgian era, including a 65-year-old woman who claimed she was pregnant with the Messiah. I’m blogging about them today at Romancing the Past.

Title news

No, I haven’t been granted a title like “baroness in her own right.”  The latest word from my editor is that, at least for now, my May release from Carina Press will be keeping it’s original title:  Ruined by Rumor.

I can’t wait until I have cover art.

Medicine during the regency

by on Sep.19, 2011, under Uncategorized

I’m blogging today at Romancing the Past about the differences between doctors, surgeons, and apothecaries, the three major medical professionals at work during the regency.
