Well, the sun is shining here--brilliantly--for the first time in weeks. We still have numerous feet of snow, but the weather forcast is calling for a bit of a warm up by the end of the week. I always get so antsy this time of year for spring. Winter where I live comes, sometimes by the end of October. This year it was early November. And while it's nice for holidays, four months of the white stuff and the frigid temps has me a little...well...blue. I'm ready for spring, the sounds of the birds, the feel of the warm sun, and at last, the ability to open my windows!
All this waiting on spring leads me to today's post. Just a bunch of tidbits, really. So, first in the queue is Foreign Covers. As an author, I'm always so excited to get my foreign covers. First, because I'm SUCH a cover monger. I literally drive my editor insane, asking when my covers will be ready. So, not only do I get one cover, I can get several, if the countries who purchase the rights to the book decide to change it. And the other reason I love foreign covers is to see what sells in their country, what readers are looking for in their covers. The covers I'm going to show you now tie in nicely with that spring-like feel. Strange, since the first one is the cover for Winter's Desire.
I do wish I was able to read in other languages. I have a very rudimentary understanding of French and Italian, so I'm able to pick out words here and there, but really, I can't read them. I do sometimes fear that maybe all of the book is not there, considering these foreign copies are usually a little thinner!
In other news, I have some bragging to do. I'm not the bragging sort, but this important to me--maybe it's because the book was so important to me. The news....Sinful has been nominated for the Romantic Times Reviewer's Choice award, as well, as these....
And speaking of Lindsay and Wallingford, we'll be seeing more of them, and their ladies in May, when the anthology The Wedding of the Century releases from HQN. My novella Seduced By Starlight features Jase Markham, the son of Linday and Anais, and Blossom, the daughter of Wallingford and Jane.
Starting in mid April, I'm going to have some fun on the blog, introducing it, and bringing Lindsay and Wallingford back, as well as putting up deleted scenes from the anthology, and a sexy teaser of Jase and Blossome! And maybe even a little snippet or two of Lindsay and Wallingford, down the road! There will also be chances to win some early copies of the anthology!
Until next time, be well!
happily forever after
