Coming Up
Mary, 2012

You can read details of my upcoming books until the end of May 2014 by clicking on the covers on Home Page. However, there are other things going on that may interest you, both about books and personal appearances.

Book 4 of the Survivors' Club series, Only Enchanting, is written and scheduled for publication by NAL, my new publisher, in November, 2014. It is Flavian Arnott, Viscount Ponsonby's story, and Agnes Keeping's. Agnes appeared for the first time as Sophia's artist friend in The Arrangement. I am about to start writing Book 5, which will be Ralph Stockwood, Earl of Berwick's story. I am not sure yet who his heroine will be.

NAL will also be publishing four of my old, out of print historical romances, probably all in 2015, and probably all in trade paperback form. Such books are more expensive, I know, and that will disappoint some of you. Trade paperbacks are also more enduring, though, and tend to have lovelier covers than mass market paperbacks—in my opinion, anyway. The four books, in the order they will be published, are Beyond the Sunrise, Longing, Heartless, and Silent Melody.

I can't yet give any definite news about the reprint of my very oldest Signet Regency romances, but at last something exciting seems to be imminent, even if just for the e-book market. I will be sure to announce the details as soon as they have been firmed up.

I have two public "appearances" planned for the first half of 2014:

On Saturday, February 15, 2014, Fresh Fiction is hosting Adventures in Fiction, a bookselling event at the InterContinental Hotel in Dallas, Texas, from noon to 4:00 p.m., followed by a party. They are planning to bring together 500 authors and 2000 readers. It should be huge fun, and I'll be there! I hope that any of you who live within range of Dallas will be there too. Get your old books signed or buy new ones. Or come and talk to me anyway and pick up one of my signed leather bookmarks.

I will be a headline speaker and workshop presenter at Spring Fling, the conference of the RWA's Chicago-North Chapter, in Chicago on April 25 and 26, 2014. If you are close by, you may want to register to attend the whole conference. Or you may wish just to come to the book signing, which is open to the public. It will be on Saturday, April 26, at the Chicago Marriott Northwest Hotel. I have no information at present at what time the signing will begin and end. Come and introduce yourselves to me. Bring old books to be signed, or buy new ones.

Happy reading for the rest of 2013 and all of 2014!
