A List of Titles
Bio and picture
The May-June 2007 edition of the newsletter.
It's book newsletter time. In other words, my new historical romance, Lady Beware, is appearing on shelves.
The official publication date is June 5th, but I've heard of Lady Beware turning up in some bookstores. As always, I hope that if you plan to buy, you'll buy in the next couple of weeks because it really will help Lady Beware to appear high on the bestseller lists, which makes my publisher happy, which means they'll keep putting out my books for my readers to enjoy.
There are now three excerpts up on my web page, so if you missed some or all and like to try before you buy, click here. There's a link at the bottom of each to the next.
I know that people reading this newsletter are probably not waiting to read reviews to decide whether to buy Lady Beware, but they're all positive so far. Romantic Times said: "This new novel is delightful, vintage Beverley, who continues her Rogue series with a fast-paced, unforgettable, wickedly sensual romance. With her talent for intelligent plotting, finely tuned dialogue and heartwarming emotions, she brings readers a tale of bravery, honor, trust and the magic of love."
The Best Reviews describes it as "Jo Beverly at her Regency romantic suspense best."
All About Romance liked it but surprised me by describing it as a light read. I do hope my books slip down easily, but I wouldn't exactly call Darien's background light, or some of the events in the book. So you are warned.
On other matters, you may want to catch up with a recent anniversary special at the Word Wenches blog about nakedness. Yes, nakedness in history and fiction. Illustrated. Our most popular week yet. I wonder why.*G*
You can find the first post
For internet treats, I offer these.
I think I directed you once before to the British Library's rotating books on line, but now they have a nifty page-turning feature that fascinates me all on its own. Click here for a sketchbook from the late 18th century.
The exhibition on Durham is also interesting. It's a fascinating place to visit if you're ever in the north of England.
Or you can view King George III's print collection.
I've always loved pop-up books, and so did my children. There's a site about them here with many early examples.
Finally, some images of hussar officers, because Darien was one.
If you'd like to receive this newsletter in e-mail, there are two ways to do so. In both cases, you will only receive the newsletter. There will be no chat or spam.
You can subscribe to a googlegroup which will send you the newsletter in e-mail. I recommend this method because the newsletter is less likely to be stopped by spam blockers.
The second method will subscribe you to a bulk mailing system. However, bulk mail is increasingly being blocked by spam filters. You can usually avoid this by adding firstname.lastname@example.org to your address book or list of approved addresses. I'm sorry, with a large mailing list we can't respond to verification messages.
