Cool feature

Dorchester is featuring a look at my fictional land of Nvengaria for Penelope & Prince Charming at:

Penelope takes place mostly in England, but Nvengaria is of prime importance. Grab your passport and have fun!

Meanwhile I'm about to finish and print the sequel, The Mad, Bad Duke. Alexander will be done and in the mail today, I swear it!!!!!

instead of working...

I played with miniatures on my web site. I added my latest project, the card room

and the Lingerie Addict scene:

I love how both turned out. I updated a few photos of the other rooms. Next I'm working on a 1/4" scale house (can you say small??) and a Moroccan room.

I really did work at the coffee house this morning. Spent an hour on Mad, Bad Duke and will continue now that I have the miniature bug out of my system. But yesterday I finished both page proofs and revisions (two different books obviously) so needed a little mental break. Minatures is good therapy. Enjoy!

Terrific Regency

I am finishing up reading Lady Emma's Dilemma by Rhonda Woodward, and oh my it is nice. I love all her books, but this one and Moonlight and Mischief are my favorites. She can really write. I always look forward to curling up with one of her books.

Such a shame that traditional Regencies overall don't do so well any longer. I love character driven stories, and though I like romances hot (and write them pretty roasting myself), I don't really notice the absense of sensuality when I read trad. Regencies. The sexual tension is still there, and when appropriate, cosummation. They don't need explicit sex. (That said, the Regency period can make for some fine erotic stories as well.)

Deep thoughts for a Wednesday.

Had some good news--Care and Feeding of Pirates is being translated into Russian. How cool is that?
