I've learned a lot about the process of turning print into ebooks since that first experiment. This spring sees the release of my medieval romance, Jewel Under Siege. Bringing the prose up to date and creating a fresh new look for the cover have kept me busy during the long winter evenings. Like my heroine Elena, I'm really looking forward to seeing the sunshine again! At the moment, Jewel under Siege is at the exciting stage of artwork and distribution co-ordination. I'll be issuing a newsletter soon to give my subscribers a sneak, pre-production peek at the new cover. It's been designed especially for the ebook by artist Samantha Groom, who also works with writers like Jean Bull. If you'd like to be one of the first to be in on the secret, you can subscribe by clicking on the envelope symbol here: http://bit.ly/1eKihHg
In the meantime, you can find out more about my first historical ebook, Lady Rascal here (if you're in the US) or here (if you're in the UK).
What do you like best about historical fiction? Is it the idea of familiar passions experienced in different cultures? Or is it the tight breeches and galloping horses? Leave your comment for the chance to win a signed book from my backlist, in a draw to be made on 17th January.
