What’s Happening?

I’m a bit snowed under at the moment, but here’s a progress report.

First, let me share this handy How Publishing Works infographic designed by Floris Books:

The Ruin of Evangeline Jones is at the QA and copy-editing stage. Meanwhile, book 3, tentatively entitled The Talented Mr. Ellis, is waaay back at the very beginning of the process. I’ve submitted a book proposal–first few chapters, blurb, and synopsis–so fingers crossed my editor likes it. While I wait to hear, I’m busily writing the rest of the book.

As for The Madness of Miss Grey, marketing is hard! And time-consuming! But that’s okay because I have a secret weapon: Mr. Bennet has become a marketing genius. So much so, that he’s starting to look like this:

Anyway, I’m frazzled, but I hope to resume normal blogging next week.


Exclusive Sneak Peek at Chapter One of “The Ruin of Evangeline Jones”

Now that The Madness of Miss Grey is out, you may be wondering what comes next. Readers have already expressed an interest in hearing more about a certain secondary character, and I am happy to reveal that his story is next. Alex, now Duke of Harcastle, is famous for exposing frauds, and it just so happens that his heroine, Evangeline Jones, is the greatest fraud of all. A duke facing down a charlatan spiritualist? Sparks are bound to fly.

While I don’t have a release date yet for Book 2, tentatively titled The Ruin of Evangeline Jones, I am offering an exclusive advanced copy of the first chapter to everyone who subscribes to my newsletter. If you missed the pop-up window the first time you visited, you can reach the sign-up form via my newsletter page here. Once you have subscribed, you will receive an email with a link to the chapter.

Also, all subscribers to my newsletter will automatically get a chance to win a free copy of the new book on release day.

Thanks for stopping by.

It’s Release Day! Happy Book Birthday to me!

Yay! *throws confetti*

To celebrate The Madness of Miss Grey‘s unleashing on an unsuspecting world, I will be making a number of guest appearances elsewhere on the web.

*Edited to add revised links and updated information*

Live now: – Researching the Romance: Victorian Sexcapades. – Post about hysteria and why I chose to set my story in a lunatic asylum. – My Top 5 Classic Romantic Comedy films. – The ABC of Romance Novel Heroes.

26th April : – Author Spotlight.

The takeover and party at the Entangled Historical Romance Fans Facebook group have both been delayed. Hopefully, they’ll still happen, so watch this space.

I really hope you’ll come and see me at some of those places.

The Madness of Miss Grey – Blurb and Buy Links

All of society believes former actress Helen Grey to be mad, but after a decade imprisoned in a crumbling Yorkshire asylum, she’s managed to cling to sanity. When a new doctor arrives, she finally sees an opportunity for freedom and she’ll do anything to not let it slip between her fingers.

Dr. William Carter knows Miss Grey is using him, but he can’t blame her. She’s no madder than he is yet she’s spent years in this place. He’ll help her escape, but they can’t cross the line and give into temptation—no matter how much he would like.

Helen and Will need to work together if she’s ever going to be free. It won’t be easy, not when her mysterious benefactor is determined to keep her locked up and hidden from society forever. When Helen is entangled in her own trap and begins to fall for Will too, she must fight not only for her liberty but for her right to love.
