News from Brazil and Poland

My readers in Brazil have asked when they can expect the remaining books in the Dressmakers series. To date, only Silk Is for Seduction has appeared. But more books in the series will be out this year and next year.

Scandal Wears Satin will be out in November 2016.

Then, in 2017 we expect the release in Brazil of Vixen in Velvet and Dukes Prefer Blondes. We don't yet know for certain in which months they'll be published, but our best guess is June and November 2017, respectively.

In other good news, Bis publishers in Poland plan to publish all four of the Dressmakers books. I will post the dates if/when I get them.


U.K. eBook Bargain and eBook News for Germany

Most of the time, I find myself apologizing to my readers outside the U.S. because an eBook isn’t available or a special deal isn’t offered in their part of the world.

This time, though, I’ve got good news for readers in the U.K and Germany.

EBooks in Australia

My dear, patient readers in Australia,

First, thank you for taking the time and trouble to let me know you're not able to purchase the digital editions of my recent books.  We had assumed that they'd be made available at the same time or close to the time the books became available in the UK.  Without your emails, we would have continued in ignorance.

So, emails have been going back and forth and contracts reviewed and a lot of aggravating complications—which make international publishing  bear an alarming resemblance to Dickens's Circumlocution Office, only more circumlocutory—have worried our pretty little heads.

And now at last I have some good news:  My three Dressmakers books—Silk is for Seduction, Scandal Wears Satin, and Vixen in Velvet—will be released digitally in Australia in July, August, and September 2014, respectively.  Interestingly, the print editions will come out later, staring with Silk is for Seduction in December.

The situation with the Carsington series, which was licensed to a different publisher (thus different complications), is now going through the email and pretty little head-worrying phase.  I'll keep you updated as I learn more.

Meanwhile, thank you for caring enough about my books to inform me about these problems.  We're tackling them, I promise.  But it's a slow process, and so I can only ask for more of that wonderful patience of yours—and hope you don't give up on me.



Silk is for Seduction at a sweet price in the UK. How's £0.99?

For years I waited for my new books to become easily available in the UK.  For years I wanted to be able to tell my Australian readers, "Yes!  You can get the eBook now!"

It's happened.  Not only that—and not only have Mills & Boon created some luscious covers for my Dressmakers series, but  a wonderful Mother's Day promotion* is now in progress, and the first Dressmakers book, Silk is for Seduction, (Marcelline's story) is part of it.  The eBook is on sale at a delightful price of  £0.99!

*Mother's Day in the U.K. is 30 March.
