July News: The Unexpected Duchess is a Kirkus Prize Nominee!

Hi there everyone,


Happy July! I hope you’re having as great a summer as I am. I’ve finished writing Jane and Garrett’s story, The Unlikely Lady (Spring 2015) and I just got back from my big birthday vacation trip to Bermuda. Now I’m settling down to write a proposal for my next set of books! I hope to continue the Playful Brides series with Daphne Swift’s book, Lord Berkeley’s book, and Owen Monroe’s book among others!

And on the plane ride home from Bermuda, I thought of an entirely new series and starting writing it, too!

In addition to celebrating my birthday, in June I discovered that The Unexpected Duchess is a 2014 Kirkus Prize Nominee in fiction! This is an amazing honor. You can read more about the award and see the entire list of nominees here. I’m not only thrilled to be in such esteemed company for such a prestigious award, but I’m also honored to be representing the romance genre. 

I’ll be in Texas!

If you’re  in the San Antonio, TX area in July, please come see me at the RWA Readers for Life Literacy Autographing on Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014 from 5:30 – 7:30 pm  at the San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter Hotel in the 3rd floor ballroom. I’d love to meet you!

And Milwaukee!

I’m also thrilled to announce that I’ll be at Barbara Vey’s Reader Appreciation Luncheon on April 25, 2015 in Milwaukee. Hope to see you there!

Have a terrific July!
