Sisters of Colford Hall

Montlake/Amazon Publishing, now publisher for my Sisters of Colford Hall 
(formerly with Dorchester Publishing), immediately re-released all three novels in KINDLE.  However, they recently informed me that they would also be putting the books into tradesize in early 2013.  I will update with precise date once I know.

I am  excited about the series going into trade.  Dorchester originally had scheduled publishing the series in tradesize for July 2012 release.  Of course, this didn't happen because of Dorchester going out of business.  So this is thrilling to see it will happen.

A nice mention by a fellow author


I had a nice surprise this morning, when I got a note from an author I have taken an interest in.  We met through Facebook, with her drawn to me because she loved my first book.  It's so nice how Facebook connects you with people you might have never had the chance to find.

Recently, she wrote me in a little bother -- she was facing her first book signing and asking for tips.  I suggested one of my best ones - Rack Cards.  They are like super wide bookmarks.  Vista Print does a lot of weekly specials, and for authors needing banners, folders, rack cards, business cards, you can often get ones for nothing but postage.  I pulled her cover off her website and create a Rack Card for her and was delighted it pleased her.  Vista did their number saving her a lot of money.  And from her blog it looks like her first signing went very well.

I was glad to play a small part in her having a great time.

working on my new study

I am doing a new study, and just finished the accent wall behind the desk.
Rather fitting, I think, for an author who writes Medieval romances.

I have always love Accolades by Leighton, so was very thrilled to find
it in a tapestry that just the perfect size to fit the wall.
