Tsundoku!

A new word for me. Tsundoku:

Buying books and not reading them; letting books pile up unread on shelves or floors or nightstands.

Can I relate? Big-time! You?

By the way, did you notice the title of the book she’s reading? ;)

Listen up!

You are cordially invited to listen to a sample from the audiobook of my just-released Engaged to the EarlThe narrator, Moira Quirk, is amaaaaaaazing! For one thing, she deftly provides distinctive characterizations for a whole host of people in the story, including my heroine Gwendolyn and hero Christopher; Gwendolyn’s mother and brothers; Katherine and a funny parrot from The Bride Takes a Groom; an earl, his arrogant younger brother, and his suspiciously affable mother; Gwendolyn’s cousin Helen and her rather dotty mother; two Patronesses of Almack’s; a supercilious French nobleman; and none other than the Prince Regent himself!

Another thing I love is how Quirk leans with such sensitivity into both the humor and the emotionality of the story.
