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.)

“Hot galley right here”

Oh my goodness, You May Kiss the Bride is on Snapchat! And all dolled up, too.

Just so you know — those aren’t my kiss-marks there. But they might have been if I’d had the chance. ;)

Cosmopolitan, Regency style? Yes, please!

Hahaha, I’d totally subscribe to this.

And later on . . .

This makes me smile.

The Land of Neckcloths

Yes, yes, I know the figures aren’t grounded in the same plane, but whatever. I love this collage! I’m writing Regency-era historicals and dwelling, as it were, in the Land of Neckcloths. So it’s kind of like a vision board.

Just . . . breathe

Your moment of Zen.

Still life with cats

This photo seems implausible. How could you get five cats to pose this way? (Which is why I included the tag “wow.”) But isn’t it wonderful?

Lisa Berne, author of historical romance, admires a surrealistically realistic photo of five charmingly grouped cats.
