No almost about it anymore.
And no Regency Mama could be prouder, to announce that as of this post my little late-bloomer of an Almost-Blog is boogie-ing out into cyberspace as a full-featured, full-figured Blog — with pictures; interactivity (please, oh please, do send me your comments!); linking, feeds, and indexing (though not all at once — there’ll be lots more links as I go forward)…
…and even a regular posting schedule.
But since a picture is worth a few gig of words, let’s start with this extraordinary graphic: the front, back and spine of my forthcoming historical romance novel, The Edge of Impropriety, due out this November in a Signet Eclipse trade edition.
It’s really something, isn’t it?
Sexy, edgy, flat-out gorgeous:
I didn’t think my publisher’s art department could outdo the cover for The Slightest Provocation, but somehow they managed.
Is it simply (as my friend Fog City Diva Candice Hern has it) that the cover gods are with me? Or did I have a little bit to do with creating my own good fortune?
You’ll have a chance to decide when you check back for a future post, in which I tell you a little something about how I contributed to this cover.
And of course I’ll be telling you more about the book itself as the publication date nears. Please come back to this web site over the summer and fall for excerpts, outtakes, and of course a new contest.
But back to the launch of this blog:Look for posts on Tuesday and Friday.
The Tuesday posts will be my own thoughts and viewpoints — opinionated and far-flung as ever, in my ongoing quest again and again and yet again (fail again, fail better!) to figure out what I’m doing at the improper edges and provocative margins of historical romance and romantic erotica.
While the Friday posts will be comprised mostly of hot, funny, or thoughtful links from a week’s web-surfing. Because yes, I admit it: I surf when I should be writing — I surf and I dive and occasionally I’ll come up with something rich and strange to share with you.
While as for the stuff from the old, Almost-Blog that I want to bring with me into the higher-tech future — you’ll be seeing more and more of those favorites as I add them.
So wish me (and my grown-up Blog) luck as we light out for cyberspace. And please come back soon!
