“I’m compelled to make art”

This made me laugh . . . especially since in my work-in-progress, the seventh book in the Penhallow Dynasty series, I’ve got a dog, a cat, and even a hairball or two. :)

. . . of the Recorded Books image for Engaged to the Earl? It’s sultry! Do you like how Gwendolyn and Christopher are rendered?

It’s quite different from the Avon/HarperCollins cover:

The dark moment . . .

Like this one, this gorgeous illustration evokes for me the interval in The Worst Duke in the World when it seems that Jane and Anthony may be parted forever. (Spoiler alert: they won’t be!) There’s something about her expression here — with its fierce intelligence and determination — which is very Jane-like. :)

Jane!

Of course this is a beautifully rendered moment from Pride and Prejudice, but it could ALSO be my heroine Jane Kent in the very first scene from my own The Worst Duke in the World (even to the muddy hem of her gown!).
