News & Notes: November 19, 2012


Just wanted to let you know I sent the manuscript of An Unsuitable Suitor off to four agents, and have given them until the end of December to reply. If I don’t hear anything, I’ll be self-publishing it early next year.

Meantime, I’ve rolled out another version of Thwarted Queen, this time the whole version in paperback for $18.99.

I’ll be taking Cecylee on a blog tour early next year in a ongoing effort to promote this novel.

Lastly, I have devised a reader’s guide to Thwarted Queen, which I’ve put right at the back of my paperback editions. For those of you who are interested, I’ve also posted this guide on my website, Spun Stories

Have a fabulous week!

Preview of forthcoming novel AN UNSUITABLE SUITOR

Just wanted you all to know the exciting news that I’ve finally finished this novel! (Here is a mockup of the cover. What do you think of it?) By ‘finished’ I mean that I have sent off the MSS to my fabulous editor, and we are now working on the final edits before it is publishable.

The novel is about identity, forbidden love and family secrets.

Set in 1920s Washington DC and Berlin, Germany, we are drawn into the world of a violinist honing her craft with the most celebrated violin pedagogue of the day, amid the seediness and glamor of 1920s Berlin.

While I was at the 2012 Historical Novel Society Conference in London, I managed to get TWO agents interested!

Stay tuned & have a fabulous weekend.
