September always feels like the beginning of the year to me, with school starting and the fresh smell of autumn in the air. It feels like a good time to make resolutions or start new things--and wow, have I started a lot of new things lately!
A month ago my family and I moved from New York City to a small village on the northwest coast of England. We got a dog, my children have all started new schools, my husband a new job, and life feels very different. It’s exciting and nerve-racking and overwhelming all at once.
Amidst all this change I’ve been working on my 20th romance for Harlequin Presents, and I feel very thankful to have that constant in my life. When house, children, dog, and moving boxes are all chaos around me, it’s been great to turn on my computer and lose myself in my current story. Yet I’ve also started something new with writing--I’ve self-published a historical saga Down Jasper Lane available now on Smashwords and Barnes & Noble, and soon on Kobo and Amazon. Down Jasper Lane was originally published in hardcover, and I’m very pleased to be able to offer a revised and expanded version to readers in digital format for a much cheaper price! You can check it out here: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/80506.
I also have a Harlequin Presents out this month, The Secret Baby Scandal, a duet with the wonderful Jennie Lucas. Leave a comment on whether you like starting new things, or what new things you may have started, and I’ll draw a winner for a copy of one of my recent releases, either The Matchmaker Bride or The Man Who Could Never Love.
