The Summer is waning. Football Season is barreling down fast! Are you a big football fan? Can’t say that I am, in terms of the actual game. But I do enjoy a good tailgate, and I love all the pageantry that accompanies a college game. As both my husband and I area alumni of the Ohio State University Fisher College of Business, we get season tickets to the OSU games every year. In Columbus, OSU football is followed as closely as a pro team. So if you see the Ohio State Buckeyes playing on the gridiron on TV, squint very carefully and you might see me (grin). (And how did a business major end up an author of sexy historical romance? Well that’s another story.)
Speaking of stories, I just returned from Scotland where I was researching the setting for the next book in the Rake Patrol series. I haven’t settled on a name yet, but thought you might enjoy some photos from the trip.
While here, I hope you’ll take a few moments to check out THE CASANOVA CODE. It launches a new series revolving around Victorian personal ads. This story has some real surprises I think you’ll enjoy, to say nothing of a spunky heroine who goes against society’s expectations and a hunky casanova hero whose experienced charms my heroine can’t resist.
I’m proud to say that REDEEMING THE ROGUE is tearing up regional romance contests. I’m feeling the Rogue love! As it’s been out a year, there’s a good chance your bookseller doesn’t have a copy on the shelves – but if you ask, they’ll bring it in for you.
On a fun note, I’m involved in a promotion with six other really fabulous authors and my webmistress who designed this cool website. The promotion is easy to enter and the prizes unique and plentiful. One winner will be chosen each week through mid-November. Simply go to my author fan page on facebook, “Like” the page, then click on the little box marked Romance Bandits. You’ll need to submit your email address there so we can contact you if you win – plus that’s sort of the official entry form. However, you have to “Like” the seven other pages to be eligible for the prize. Simply click on the photo – it’s a shortcut (I think of it as a worm hole) to the others in the promotion. Then watch to see if you win. One entry and you’re good for the full twelve weeks! Good Luck!
Till next month -
