England [32] : Timber Framed [2] –  Coventry, Stratford Upon Avon, Warwick, London, Pembridge, Chester, Prestbury, Stratford Upon Avon,  Ludlow, Kew

I think I am going to re-imagine the whole town of Aversin Shore in Chocolatier’s Wife to look like this.

Boreas. 1903. John William Waterhouse

Tasmin always looked a little like this to me.

So here I am, trying something new.  The first time I saw tumblr it was when one of my friends created one for the Fencing Club that I help run…the second time I saw it was when I was looking up pictures of…well, OK, a certain character from a TV show I’d gotten fascinated with.

Once a fan girl, I guess, always a fan girl.  

I write, so the challenge on tumblr will be to balance my obsession with pretty people and things in balance with my “professional” personage.  

Humph.  

Well.  Today I’m on Epic’s blog:  http://tinyurl.com/7upnbv2  

And my first picture will be the new cover of the second edition of The Chocolatier’s Wife!  Yay!  The cover is by Howard David Johnson…isn’t it lovely?

What do I mean by second edition?  Well, when Drollerie Press closed, two of my books, The Chocolatier’s Wife and my short story collection were no longer officially published.  So, I have a new publisher…and the book has a new cover, new edits (a v. v. minor plot hole I did not notice patched!) and so I’m calling it a second edition, though really, I guess it’s a re-release.

As you can see, I survived camping, and will post all about Pennsic soon.  It’s just so overwhelming, I needed time to think about the experiance.  It was wonderful, though, and I am looking forward to next year.

My chat at Library Thing will start very soon, and last all week!  I think this will be the address.  I am looking forward to meeting new readers, answering questions, and just generally schmoozing.

There is also a lovely new interview with me up at Coffee Time Romance!  I really enjoyed it, and am grateful to them for their help.

Speaking of which, Fiction Addiction has opened up a new lounge, which I will be one of the main Hosts of.  This forum will be very friendly…any type of nastiness (which, if you’ve been to a lot of writing boards, you know seems to come with the territory) will be dealt with immediately.  This is going to be an open, friendly and most of all relaxing place, and I am very proud to be assiciated with it, and with Fiction Addiction, which, thanks to the hard work of Apryl Duncan, is looking really spectacular.

My ego boost for the month comes by way of Tina-Sue Ducross:  “Absolutely blog posts, featuring great reads, honest and delightful insight.”  Awww!

My essay on “Forgetting the Muse” is up at Once Written.

Finally, an awesome review of The Chocolatier’s Wife. Front Street reviews says “Likeable and sweet in more ways than one this is a fine piece of fiction with some murder, mystery, magic and fantasy. ” Also, she said on her blog,”This was an interesting read. A little murder mystery, a pinch magical and bit like a fairy tale. The characters were fun and the storyline tasted good ;)” 😀

And it, along with many other fine books, are on sale! It will be in eBook for now, then in january it’ll be out in paper. It’ll hot Amazon, and be avilable on Kindle, but you can also purchase it from the website or from where ever you usually buy your ebooks.

To celebrate, I decided to start my charatcer interviews. These interviews will be somewhat silly…which means, I hope, that they will be fun to read. Here’s my first interview, with dear William.

Also, if you are willing to feature a review of either Blue Moon or The Chocolatier’s Wife on your website, I would be happy to give you a .PDF copy of either book…just let me know!
