“I can’t imagine why you read those romantic novels”

This floated across my Twitter feed, and I had to laugh.

Mix-and-match Pride & Prejudice

I’m a big fan of Pride and Prejudice, so naturally this graphic gave me several minutes of mix-and-match joy. My favorite Mr. Darcy? Whose portrayal of Elizabeth Bennet do I like best? Who’s the most indelible Mr. Collins?

SO. MUCH. AUSTEN-Y. GOODNESS.

It’s Caturday!

This item recently crossed my radar, and I kind of want one. Even though I don’t have a cat. But isn’t it cool? And cozy?Photo: a felted "cat-cave"This is cool too. Also, slightly unnerving.

This made me actually LOL.

Meme: vintage photo of a cat: "JENKINS PREPARE THE FINEST CARPET, I WISH TO VOMIT"

 

And of course, no Caturday is truly complete without a special guest appearance by . . .

Grumpy Cat meme: "LOVE IS IN THE AIR? GET OUT THE GAS MASK"

 

I love you too, Grumpy Cat. :)

It’s Romance Week at Goodreads!

Although, as a romance novelist, I would argue that every week is romance week. ;)

Logo: Goodreads Romance Week

All kinds of cool stuff is going on. Romance authors taking questions, 14-word love stories (so far my favorite is J.R. Ward’s “‘How can I not love you?’ I said to Channing Tatum as he blushed”), Top 10 lists, and more. Click here to check it out.

And stay tuned! Avon Books is hosting another Goodreads giveaway for You May Kiss the Bride, starting on — swoon! — Valentine’s Day. I’ll keep you updated when the giveaway goes live.

On bagpipes, and my next book

So in my next book, The Laird Takes a Bride, there’s a reference to bagpipes which I gotta say is one of the single best lines I’ve ever written.

"Pipe Practice" by William Bruce Ellis Ranken (1918): a painting of three men with bagpipes.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t work to share it out of context. Which probably makes this a totally unfair teaser. But the good news is that The Laird Takes a Bride arrives this summer! I’m so looking forward to sharing more about it with you as we get closer.

In the meantime, you can preorder the Kindle edition here. (More info about other formats coming soon.)
