Historical Romance Retreat

I hope you’re having a wonderful summer! I’ve been working to plant my brand new garden–my neighbor looked over the fence and asked if I’d bought out the garden center. ;-)

Meanwhile, I’m putting together an extra-special free story for my readers: an epilogue for Dearest Rogue! Here’s how it will work: when pre-orders of Sweetest Scoundrel reach 1,500 on Amazon I’ll be posting the story to my website so everyone can read it. We’re at about 1,000 pre-orders now, so I think this is a very attainable goal. If you haven’t already pre-ordered Sweetest Scoundrel, now is the time to do it!

I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be attending an all-new romance convention next year–just for historical romance writers and readers! The Historical Romance Retreat will be held September 22-25 in Spokane, Washington at the beautiful Davenport Hotel. Reader attendance is limited to 300 people and there’s a special Early Bird registration price, so hurry up and register for this fun event!

See you there!

Awards and a Move

Spring is here and the Hoyt Household has moved, dogs and all, to Minneapolis. Our new home is lovely, but the backyard isn’t. In fact it holds very little besides an old tree stump and a falling-down fence. I hope to have the backyard landscaped with the help of a professional landscaper, so stay tuned!

In the last couple of weeks I’ve had two pieces of wonderful news: Darling Beast has finaled in the Romance Writers of America┬«’s 2015 RITA┬« Contest and Apollo Greaves, the hero of Darling Beast has been named Historical K.I.S.S. hero of the year by RT Book Reviews! The dogs and I are doing lots of happy dances!
