“One of the most exciting new historical writers”

If you’ve been hanging out with me for any length of time, you know that I’m a huge Julia Quinn fan, and that her books have been a major, major inspiration to me. So you can imagine how I felt when she posted this on her Facebook page yesterday:

Yep! Incredibly happy, honored, proud, and grateful.

Gratitude

With Engaged to the Earl newly launched into the world as of yesterday — huzzah! — I want to extend A TON of gratitude out into the world, too. AlthoughEngaged to the Earl writing a book tends to be a fairly solitary experience, putting it together in finished form is a highly collaborative process. I had a lot of help and support along the way.

So, here’s a little peek into the first pages of Engaged to the Earl:

Meet my valentine!

Presenting . . . Sissy! She was born in Thailand in 1968, which means she’s 52 years old. She’s 8 feet, 3 inches tall, and her favorite food is mazuri pellets. She loves to splash and swim in ponds, even in the rain, and she has an unusual communication style of flipping the end of her trunk to make a popping noise. These delightful sounds are often heard when she’s socializing or when she has a new enrichment item to play with.

Isn’t she beautiful?!?

You see, for Valentine’s Day I “adopted” Sissy, a resident of the Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee.  Am I in love? Totally.

“Graceful, lyrical, and charming”

Wow, what a lovely review from Kirkus for Engaged to the Earl!

“A sophisticated, elegantly written study on character and love . . . the subtle comparison of the quick ‘love at first sight’ romance versus the slow-building, deep-rooted love between characters is lovely and satisfying. Graceful, lyrical, and charming.”
