Thank you one and all for the wonderful year you have shared with me. From your posts here on this blog, to your friendship on Facebook, to your kind emails that arrive in my inbox like little presents, I find daily reminders about why I love being an author–the readers who share my joy in happy endings, a bit of comedy and a dash of adventure. I am constantly amazed that you care so deeply about these characters I’ve created (yes, I am talking about you die-hard Marlowe fans!) and how much they live through not only through my imagination, but continue on in yours.
This past year I finished a number of things–including writing the Bachelor Chronicles. I know that will make some people sad, but for me it was time to conclude the series and move on with something a little different, a little fresher. But before you go into mourning or start pelting me at booksignings with Felicity’s reticule, do remember that there is one more book left in the series that has yet to hit the shelves: Lord Langley is Back in Town, which will arrive at the end of May, just in time to kick off some summer reading. The cover is incredible, so much so that I’ve been asked to hold back posting it for a little while yet. Yeah, it’s that cool.
As for the new series, let us just say I have a wonderful idea that I came up with while at RomCon last summer. Avon loved it as much as I do (so much so they signed me up for three more books) and so come January I will pack away the last of my Bachelor Chronicles files and begin creating an entirely new little world–complete with a pack of eccentric spinsters, some headstrong young misses, an unwilling bride, and of course, the requisite lords, rakes, and devilish cads to make all our hearts beat a little faster. I can’t think of a better way to ring in the New Year.
You’ll also be seeing some changes around my site–not anything big, but just a bit of a face lift to keep it fresh and interesting. Let me know if you have ideas about what you would like to see around here.
All my best wishes to you for a Christmas filled with the spirit of renewal and light, for a New Year filled with hope, health and happiness, and always, a happy ending.
God bless you and keep you safe, for you are all so very dear to me.
