I’m so happy that The Artful Match is now out in the world, and is available at bookstores and eReaders near you!
All this week, I’m sharing photos on Facebook of pictures that I used as inspiration for The Artful Match. I hope you’ll stop by and enjoy learning more about the background of this book.
If you are in the area of Raleigh/Durham, North Carolina, I’m holding a painting party to celebrate the release of THE ARTFUL MATCH! Because the heroine of the book, Cara Bernay, is an artist, I thought it would be fun to dive into the painting experience for a few hours. We’ll be making a painting of Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, a beloved symbol of North Carolina. There is a tie-in of sorts to THE ARTFUL MATCH. The story includes a hurricane — something we North Carolinians are very familiar with! — and a shipwreck, which lighthouses are of course designed to prevent. Everything you need to make the painting is provided, including instruction, and every participant will receive an autographed copy of THE ARTFUL MATCH. There will also be snacks and beverages provided, and the facility offers wine and beer for sale. Doors open at 2:30 for socializing, and the painting starts at 3 pm. Cost is $35 per person. To reserve your spot, be sure to sign up HERE.
MORE FUN NEWS! My website is currently under construction (in the background). I’ll have a new website up soon, with a fresh look and fun links for you to enjoy.
My thanks to all the readers who have enjoyed these books! Happy reading!
Here’s a bit of what THE CAPTAIN’S DAUGHTER is about:
When a series of circumstances beyond her control leave Rosalyn Bernay alone and penniless in London, she chances upon a job backstage at a theater which is presenting the most popular show in London. A talented musician and singer, she feels immediately at home and soon becomes enthralled with the idea of pursuing a career on the stage.
An injury during a skirmish in India has forced Nate Moran out of the army until he recovers. Filling his time at a stable of horses for hire in London, he has also spent the past two months working nights as a stagehand, filling in for his injured brother. Although he’s glad he can help his family through a tough time, he is counting the days until he can rejoin his regiment. London holds bitter memories for him that he is anxious to escape. But then he meets the beautiful woman who has found a new lease on life in the very place Nate can’t wait to leave behind.
This week and next, I’ll be participating in a fun blog tour to celebrate the release of A Lady Most Lovely. I’ll be joining four other Forever Romance authors who have recent releases as well.
For starters, readers voted on what kind of original scene they wanted to see from us. Here are the parameters they chose:
A young heiress heroine who is a mysterious brunette.
A titled gentleman hero whose usual expression is a dark scowl.
This couple has never met before.
The scene takes place in a bedroom.
Intrigued yet? I’ve listed the links to these fun scenes below, as well as the day they will appear. Mine will appear on Thursday, October 10, on the Library Journal blog!
Then next week we’ll be answering some lively Q&A’s. I hope you will check it out.
