The 2017 Book Tour in Review

Signing books at the Savoy Bookshop & Cafe in Westerly, RI

It’s a new year already, and I’m working on a new book, the second in the Difficult Dukes series.

In recent weeks/months I was also busy making virtual and real appearances in connection with the first Difficult Dukes book, A Duke in Shining Armor.

The virtual appearances include blog posts and interviews, some of which cover not just the book but topics that may be of interest to romance readers.

Marilyn Dahl interviewed me for Shelf Awareness, and made me sound unusually coherent. Thank you, Marilyn!

Denny S. Bryce moderated a panel dealing with Romance and Respect at the Strand Bookstore in New York. You can watch the whole thing here on YouTube.

At RT Reviews, I offered the alarming truth about dukes in the early 19th century. For RT’s VIP Salon subscribers, there’s also an interview.

My work gets a mention in this piece on bodice rippers—the term that won’t go away.

Another take on the topic of romance novels is at Publishers Weekly:  “It’s Still Complicated: Romance Publishing.”
