Enter Ned and Joanna’s World

Tuesday, September 8th, 2009

To create as vivid a backdrop as possible for October release of Ned and Joanna’s book, FROM WAIF TO GENTLMAN’S WIFE, I’ve added several features to the website this month. First and foremost, there’s an excerpt to give you a taste of the story, background character sketches of Ned and Joanna, and a pictorial gallery of some the Nottinghamshire countryside where the story takes place.

There’s also an update on the 2010 Regency continuity REGENCY SILK AND SCANDAL that includes a synopsis of each book and photos of the participating authors.

Browse and enjoy!



‘WAIF’ EAGERLY AWAITED

Friday, September 4th, 2009

Julia was delighted to discover that WAIF is one of the October releases AAR staffers Blythe and Ellen are “eagerly awaiting.” Also on the list are books by favorite authors Carolyn Jewel, Mary Balogh, and Sharon Sala as well as releases by new author Tessa Dare. Plus a new historical novel about much-maligned Catherine Howard, Henry VIII’s “beheaded wife No. 2,” called THE QUEEN’S MISTAKE and written by veteran historical author Diane Haeger. Ah, if only one could do without sleep and use the time for reading!



Ned’s Book Gets a Name (and Release Date)

Tuesday, February 24th, 2009

Julia is happy to announce that Ned and Joanna’s book has been officially titled–and given a release date!  FROM WAIF TO GENTLEMAN’S WIFE will be released by Harlequin Historicals in October 2009.  This story, another Wellington family book,  completes the tale of the “trilogy” of friends that include Nicky (Nicholas Stanhope, Marquess of Englemere, THE WEDDING GAMBLE,) Hal (Hal Waterman, A MOST UNCONVENTIONAL MATCH) and now Ned, Sir Edward Austin Greaves.  For more on Ned and the lady who woos him from his determined bachelor ways, check out Coming Soon on the Bookshelf page.



Update on Ned’s book

Thursday, January 22nd, 2009

I’ve just turned in the rewrites for Ned’s still-untitled book, due out in late 2009.  The editors are hinting it might not debut until December, alas—not a good month for a book with a Luddite rebellion rather than a Christmas theme!  (for more info on Ned’s story, check here.)  Please cross fingers and hope for an earlier release date.  Also for a good title!  It was submitted under “A Gentleman’s Wife.”

BTW, there will be an “Undone” historical e-book short released in conjunction with it, featuring two secondary characters who will play a major role in Ned and Joanna’s story.  More details here as I get them…
