Blogging and sales

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

The countdown has started–less than 20 days until Loving Lord Ash is out in the world! To celebrate, I’m doing a bit of blog hopping. You can find me Under the Covers—grin—today and at Vanessa Kelly’s blog tomorrow. Stop by if you can. There are giveaways!

In other good news, again to celebrate Ash’s approaching arrival, the e-versions of the earlier Duchess of Love books are on sale. The Duchess of Love novella is FREE; Bedding Lord Ned and Surprising Lord Jack are each $2.99—or less! Visit your favorite e-bookstore and grab them. The sale is scheduled to end February 25.

My other good news: Booklist gave Loving Lord Ash a starred review! Here’s the best part: “Readers will love being treated to this lively, hilarious Regency romp in MacKenzie’s Duchess of Love series and will want all three books.”

I hope you are warm wherever you are. We are getting a little tired of winter. We got a foot of snow overnight—which I will admit I’d rather have than ice or freezing rain. Still, I’m looking forward to spring.

Around the Web–Loving Lord Ash

Tuesday, November 26th, 2013

A few days ago, I was emailing with the fabulous Mary Jo Putney, and we got to talking about animals in books, specifically the dog in Loving Lord Ash. Yes, Ash doesn’t come out until March, but Mary Jo got a sneak peek. And you can meet Fluff, too, if you go read the first chapter here. In the beginning of the book Fluff’s name is Kit. You’ll probably figure out why he gets a new name after you read the chapter!

When I wrote Kit/Fluff, I was picturing the modern version of a Newfoundland. Mary Jo wondered if the breed existed in the Regency, and I was able to say yes! Lord Byron wrote an ode to his favorite newfie. Bryon’s dog might not have been as big and fluffy as Fluff, though, so I’m saying Fluff is a mutt to appease my need for historical accuracy. (We historical writers have to check these things out, if we can.)

Mary Jo blogged about our conversation on the Word Wenches blog which you can find here.
