Greetings, my gentle readers! Here’s hoping that this first day of Spring is as sunny as beautiful where you are as it is here!
It’s been about a month and a half since How to Dance with a Duke wended its way from the virtual and literal shelves and into readers hands, and what a whirlwind! From the lovely notes I’ve received in my email box, it seems that you have enjoyed reading about Lucas and Cecily’s path to true love. And I could not have been more pleased. There’s a certain amount of angst surrounding the release of a book, most of which boils down to the question: What if they HATE it? Fortunately, it seems that if some of you have hated it, you haven’t let me know. And for that, I am grateful;)
Thank you so much for buying, for sending me pictures of the book out in the wild, and most of all for reading! I am humbled by the outpouring of praise and support you’ve sent my way, and I hope that you’ll continue to enjoy my books as they are published.
Now, on to news!
First off, thanks to your enthusiastic support, How to Dance with a Duke spent FIVE WEEKS on the Nielsen Bookscan Top 100 Romance Books list! You guys ROCK! Thank you so much for buying and encouraging your friends to buy! Big smooches to you all!
Next, my editor emailed me last week to let me know that the audio rights to both How to Dance with a Duke and How to Romance a Rake have been sold to Tantor Media! This means that in a month or so, you’ll be able to listen to HTDWAD on your ipod, CD, or whichever other audio format you choose! It’s pretty exciting for me–especially since the actress reading it is ENGLISH! So, instead of sounding like my own Southern Drawl, it will sound like it does in my head–perfectly, charmingly, English! Yay!
And finally, editor Holly sent me (and all of Twitter) a picture of the ARC of How to Romance a Rake in her hot little hands! I can hardly believe it’s time for ARCs yet, since it feels like the first book just released, but it’s true! So, be on the lookout for giveaways, my peeps!
That’s all for now. Stay tuned for more exciting news and general meandering notices from my fevered brain.
