My Blog Has Shifted

I have a brand new beeeyoutiful website and to make my blog compatible with it, I've transferred over to Wordpress, so this will be my last post here. The new blog address is

Come over and have a look at my site. The figure of the Regency girl is an original watercolor painted by my friend Melanie Scott, who is also a writer (fantasy under MJ Scott and contemporary romance as Melanie Scott.) Here's a small part of it. It's so pretty. She's very talented, I think.

Thanks so much for reading this blog and following me and leaving comments. I hope you enjoy the new blog and site.

I'm going to Romantic Times.

I'm getting a gorgeous new website, and as part of that process, I'm moving to another blogging platform, so it will all be coordinated. This will be one of the last posts from this site, but I wanted to get this news in before we move.

I'm going to the RT convention in Las Vegas April. I'm so excited — it will be my first RT convention.

I'm going to be on a "Meet the Authors from Downunder" reader event with my friends Keri Arthur,  Nalini Singh, and Khloe Wren. They're all paranormal writers (and fabulous ones, too) so I'll be the odd one out, the lone historical writer in the group. That's on the Wednesday.

And on the Thursday afternoon, I'm going to be on a hero panel "Rakes Rogues and Warrior Poets" with my friends and fellow historical romance writers, Mary Jo Putney and Patricia Rice.

I'll be signing with Berkley, too. The full program is here.

I'm really looking forward to catching up with author friends, readers and meeting new people.
Hope to see you there.
