April Update: Hunt Club, Distinguished Rogues and more

April Update: Hunt Club, Distinguished Rogues and more

Happy April regency romance fans,

I’m so glad to see the back of March and hopefully an end to this crazy hot Summer. Heat and humidity are not really my friend. However, thanks to getting an Air Conditioning unit for my office, I’ve managed to write a fair few words since New Year’s Day. I’m really pleased to promise I’ve got a number of new stories in the pipeline for release in the latter part of the year, including a super secret one. More on that one later.

New Hunt Club

First book announcement is awesome. I just finished writing the Hunt Club’s sixth story last week! I’m both elated and sad about finishing up that series, but I do know from the number of fan emails that so many are waiting for this one last important story. No spoilers today, but I have booked the edit for Once a Husband for June. Depending on the feedback I get from my fearless editor, I expect to announce the release date here in July. Keep an eye on the coming soon page as well.

Distinguished Rogues Milestone

Coming up in May is the 6th Anniversary of publishing Chills, book 1 of the popular Distinguished Rogues series. To mark the special occasion I’m sprucing up the whole series — new covers and formatting for every book (including print) and an update on the first three early stories to bring them up to date with my current writing style. I’ll be showing off the new look books May 1st and updating all the booksellers during the following week(s). If you’ve read some of the books in Kindle format and do not have automatic updates turned on you might want to do that this month so you get them as soon as they become available.

Book Bargain

The price of Miss Watson’s First Scandal has dropped to 99c for April and beyond. You can read more about Miss Watson and her friends  (Miss George’s Second Chance, Miss Radley’s Third Dare & Miss Merton’s Last Hope) on the website.

April Update

 

Don’t forget too, new release announcement happen here on the blog and via the newsletter. Be sure to sign up and stay informed.

Until next time.

Cheers and happy reading!

Sweet is definitely better #MFRWAuthors

Sweet is definitely better.

Welcome back for another week of the  MFRW 52 week Blogging Challenge! Each week I will be writing a post from a set list of topics that with luck will a) get me blogging more often and b) help you get to know me better.

This week’s theme is: Words that Make me Go ICK

My blog post this week is short and to the point. The words that always make me cringe is…

Brussel Sprouts

I loathe the combination of words, and especially the taste. Just typing them makes me feel as queasy as having to eat them as a child once did.

So to recover from the ickiness…here’s my idea of good food.

Voila… Baked Cheesecake

Do you agree with me that a sweet treat like cheesecake beats Brussel Sprouts?

Tonight you’re mine

Welcome back for week seven of the  MFRW 52 week Blogging Challenge! Each week I will be writing a post from a set list of topics that with luck will a) get me blogging more often and b) help you get to know me better.

This week’s theme is: How I Choose a Book Title

Choosing book titles is a special kind of torture for me. It’s something I’ve never enjoyed…until inspiration finally strikes and I have it done and decided. My usual methods have been honed to a fine art. I have five steps that I religiously follow each and every time.

So how does an author with over thirty stories published come up with book titles?

1. Scrawl words on paper.

Then scratch off names, make paper balls and lob them across the room at the bin.

(I should confess I have terrible aim and that my cat Morpheus does not chase those papers across the room.)

2. Brainstorm on a whiteboard.

Writing potential titles on the whiteboard gives me something to stare at, stroll past a dozen times.

(wonderful help for the daily step count)

3. Consider what’s currently popular and in use in my genre.

Searching Amazon, iBooks and Barnes and Noble is a good way of finding words I haven’t used yet in a title and what’s overwhelmingly seen too often.

(and its a great way of finding shiny new books to read next)

4. Check the titles I’ve already published.

Does my potential title fit with the series? If no, that’s more paper on the floor for the cat to ignore.

5. When all else fails?

Scrub everything, go do something else. The right title more often than not pops into my head hours after I give up trying to pin a title down.

That’s exactly what happened last week. I had a sudden inspiration for book 8 of the Distinguished Rogues Series right before bed and I just love it! Wish I could share, but that’s for a future post. Sorry.
