Lots of Book News!

So much has been happening lately that I can barely keep up with it!

First, if you look to the right, you’ll see my beautiful new cover for The Devil of Kilmartin, designed by the talented Kim Killion at Hot Damn Designs. One of the real pleasures of independently publishing is that I get to experiment with all sorts of things, including covers, so after a year of wonderful sales with my lovely green Celtic knot cover, designed by Kristin Lawrence, I thought I’d see how my book fared with a more traditional romance cover.

What do you think? Will it attract different readers than the green knot one?

Now, on to even bigger book news: I have signed a contract with Amazon’s new romance line, Montlake, to bring out Charming the Shrew and Daring the Highlander in new editions. That means new covers, new descriptions, new marketing that will go way beyond anything I can do on my own to get my book discovered by new readers. It also looks like these books will once more be available in print while also remaining available for the Kindle. If you don’t have a Kindle, never fear, there are free Kindle apps for most any device you can think of.

I’m looking forward to embarking on yet another new adventure in today’s publishing world and can’t wait to see what the new editions of these books will look like.  Publication dates are yet to be set, but I was told they will be out in early 2012. How wonderful to sign a publishing contract and not have to wait a year or more to see the results!

Stay tuned for more information as soon as I have it.

Oh, and never fear, I’m hard at work on a new Scottish historical romance – the first of a trilogy. I don’t have a title for the book yet, but the working title for the trilogy is The Highland Targe.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and here’s hoping everyone gets lots of good books (and maybe an eReader!) for Christmas!
