Please join me Thursday and Friday this week at Regan’s Romance Reviews. I met Regan on-line, then we connected recently at the Romantic Times convention in Chicago last month. She’s done some lovely reviews of my books and is an avid supporter of historical romance in general and Scottish historicals in particular. I have a guest post at her blog on Thursday — Braving the Research for Highland Historical Romances — and will be popping in to answer questions on Thursday and Friday all day long.
So my good friend and fellow author, Phyllis Haislip, has a video camera and we decided to play with it. We took turns being in front of/behind the camera and had a little fun (okay, it got to be fun as we went along, but it was nerve inducing at first!). I’m going to post my episodes and Phyllis’s over the next few days for your viewing pleasure. All the episodes are also posted at YouTube.com.
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.
It’s Black Friday… that has such an ominous tone that I huddle in my home avoiding the masses of shoppers pretty much from now through Christmas. Do I have my shopping done? About half. Will I venture into the stores at all? Of course, but I specialize in the surgical strike. I know what I want, where to get it, and I’m in and out as fast as possible. It helps that I live in a fairly small town (less crowds) and that I pretty much make my own schedule (I can hit the stores early in the morning on week days!). But at this point, I’ll do most of my shopping on-line.
I thought you might like to do that, too, so I’ve cooked up some bargains to help you out with your shopping.
Available for the first time in ebook formats for only $2.99.
