An Upcoming Signing and a Contest!

I’m quite excited! I just heard word that I’ll be signing at the Anderson’s Bookshop in Naperville, Illinois on April 27th. I’ll be joined by several other author friends, but I want to wait to announce who until we have definite confirmations. Just be assured that if you read historical romance this won’t be a signing to miss. ;-)

My goodness, it’s already February and Lord of Darkness will be here in 26 days. If you haven’t already done so, now might be a good time to pre-order the book or ebook so as to have it in your hands on release day.

To celebrate the release of Lord of Darkness, I’m holding a Facebook contest along with Eloisa James, Susan Mallery, Julia London, Jillian Hunter, and debut author, Maire Claremont. The contest runs February 1st thru March 15th. We’ll be giving away weekly signed book bundles and, at the end, a new iPad mini! Do be sure to enter.

Meanwhile, check out my Maiden Lane pages for the List of Characters for Lord of Darkness, as well as the new St. John Family Tree. I’ve been adding to the excerpt of Lord of Darkness (we’re now in Chapter 2) and there’s also an ongoing “prologue“–letters between Megs and Godric written during the two year gap between the end of Thief of Shadows and the beginning of Lord of Darkness.

Finally, if you’d like to be alerted the very day that Lord of Darkness arrives in stores, please sign up for my one time only Tell Me When the Book is Out! News Alert.

Enjoy!

Happy Holidays

We have no snow yet, but the colder weather has definitely moved to central Illinois. The shorter days and chill make me want to hibernate through December, but I have the feeling my family would object…who would cook all the traditional holiday dishes if I’m burrowed under the covers? ;-)

I’m very pleased to announce that Scandalous Desires was named one of the best books of 2011 by Publishers Weekly and was chosen for RT Book Review‘s Seal of Excellence for November.

For a short time only my contemporary romance, For the Love of Pete is on sale in most ebookstores, including: Amazon, Nook, Sony, Kobo, Ebooks.com, Diesel, and Books on Board.

I hope you enjoy spending lots of time with your family this holiday season!
