The Prince's Consort has been out for over a month, and I want to thank all of you who have read it. You've made my day! The Artist's Masquerade is through the editing and proofing stages and seems on track for release next month. I don't have pre-order links yet, but as soon as I do, I'll let you know. There is an excerpt from The Artist's Masquerade up on the website. You can find it here. I'm so excited for this book and I'd love to know what you think.
I'm busy putting together blog posts for the tour I'm doing for The Artist's Masquerade next month. There will be posts, excerpts, an interview - lots of good stuff. So look out for that next month. I'm also writing the fourth Tournai book now. I haven't gotten quite as far as I would have liked because of everything else I'm working on and because the beginning of a book always goes a bit slower for me since I'm still figuring it all out, but I know it'll pick up as I go.
I haven't been reading as much as I normally do lately because of writing/editing/promo for the books, which upsets me because there are so many books I want to read. But here are a few books I've read in the last couple of months and really enjoyed:
Stygian by Santino Hassell - I read this Halloween weekend and it was absolutely perfect. The creepy atmosphere of the old southern mansion, the paranormal aspects that subtly sneak in. Loved it.
Groom of Convenience by Vicktor Alexander - Vicktor was here on the blog with the cover reveal for the second book in this series, which I'm looking forward to after reading book one. This is an intriguing Alt-historical world with engaging characters and a light, fun plot.
Tournament of Shadows by SA Meade - A historical set in a time period and location that isn't usually seen in historical romances with lots of intriguing espionage.
Chaos Station by Jenn Burke and Kelly Jensen - The first in a science fiction romance series that had me wondering why I waited so long to read it. I'm eager to read the rest of the series and find out what happens to these guys.
Only a Kiss by Mary Balogh - The latest in her Survivor's series, which I really enjoy because the characters aren't typical of historical m/f romance.
Vespertine by Leta Blake and Indra Vaughn - a second chance romance between a rock star who's a recovering addict and a priest. Such a wonderful, emotional story.
And soon I'll be thinking about holiday romances, my preferred reading material in December. What have you been reading lately?
