In public is not where I usually hang out. Though I’ve lived here and there in the last year or so, mostly what I’ve been doing here and there is writing.
But Vixen in Velvet, my newest Dressmakers book, will be out in a matter of weeks, and it’s time to come out of hibernation and show the world my face, or at least hold one of my books up in front of it, and invite readers and those I hope will become readers to meet me and/or find out things about me.
The meeting part this time around will happen at Book Expo America in NYC.
As you’ll see when you click on the link, it’s a Very Big Deal, with writer megastars and celebrities in attendance, and of course I’m excited (and a little alarmed—this thing is huge!) about my part in the bookish festivities. With sister historical romance writer Sarah MacLean, I’ll be signing books, answering questions, and engaging in other authorial activities on Thursday and Friday.
But that's not all.
Via the magic of the Internet, I’ll also be appearing on Trisha Sugarek’s blog, Writer at Play, in a two-part interview on Thursday and Saturday 29 and 31 May (please look for the tabs for the dates). I hope you’ll find it amusing or enlightening or even both.
For this and other reasons, we’ll be posting some Return Engagements—historical gems you might have missed the first time around—then return to our regularly scheduled blogging next week. Expect June fashions and Dickens, for starters.
