There’s nothing like the first really hot days of summer to make me want to curl up somewhere cool and escape into a book.  Last week, here in Virginia, we hit 99 and the heat index was over 100 so I thought it was high time to make The Devil of Kilmartin such a deal that you couldn’t possibly pass up the opportunity to escape the heat and journey into the Scottish Highlands where the men are braw and the women like them that way.

To whet your appetite here’s a couple of pictures I took on my research trip for this book.

This is the spot where the hero and heroine meet:

Temple Wood stone circle, Kilmartin, Scotland

And here is the castle that inspired my Kilmartin Castle:

Doune Castle near Sterling, Scotland

In true writer’s style, I lifted this castle, moved it west to Argyll,
and plopped it down where a medieval structure once stood.
I fell in love with this castle and my characters really came alive for me within its walls. 

For Monty Python and the Holy Grail fans,
this is the castle the French soldiers threw the cow from.
Really!
 
So please treat yourself to a thrifty trip to
medieval Scotland 
for only .99!

Hitting the Amazon Best-seller Lists!

I was very excited to get an email late this afternoon from fellow Scottish Romance author Diana Cosby telling me Daring the Highlander (The MacLeods Book II) was sitting at # 80 on Amazon’s top 100 Hot New Releases in Historical Romance list.  That’s the Kindle edition right up in there with print books!  As I write this it’s moved up to #77 (6 PM EST).  I have no idea how these lists are generated, but it’s a huge thrill to find my book on it.

Then I discovered the The Devil of Kilmartin was sitting at #95 on the Amazon Kindle Bestsellers in Historical Fiction list!  (Also 6 PM EST)

Though I don’t know how books get placed on the lists, I know the lists get regenerated every hour so my claim to Amazon best-sellerdom may be fleeting, but it’s still very, very sweet.

This calls for another huge Thank You!! to everyone who has bought my books.  Guess I better get back to work on the new one!

Thank you, readers!

I’m taking a moment here as we begin another year to say thank you to all my readers.  There has been a wonderful response to my re-published backlist books this year and it has kept a smile on my face since the first e-copy of The Devil of Kilmartin sold back in September.  October and November brought Charming the Shrew and Daring the Highlander (Books I & II of The MacLeods) out in e-formats for the first time ever and they have all been scooped up, er downloaded, by readers both at home and across the pond. 

My plan is to thank all of you with a new Scottish medieval romance this year.  I’m not revealing anything about it yet, as it’s still in those tender early stages, but I think you’ll find it to be another great adventure in the Highlands.

Happy reading to all of you in 2011!
