Fellow spud-lovers!

If, like me, you enjoy potatoes, this is going to be a REALLY hard question.

You can only have THREE of these yummy dishes. Which will it be?

Now, excuse me while I go foraging for a snack. This question is making me hungry. :)

And the winner is . . .

The other day I asked for input in naming a character in the book I’m currently writing, and got so many helpful replies! The choices were Frederick, Walter, Simon and Edward, and the #1 name for my icky smarmy duke is . . .

Close behind was Simon, with Walter a distant third, and Edward garnering the fewest votes of all.

Just so you know . . . the icky Frederick is *not* my hero! He’s a secondary character who will of course come by his just desserts. :)

My warmest thanks to all who helped out!

Which name?

I’m looking for input! A character in the book I’m currently writing — the sixth in my Penhallow Dynasty series — needs a good first name. He’s an icky smarmy duke (but don’t worry, he’ll get what’s coming to him). What is your #1 choice?

Loch Ness Monster ladles!

These are obviously not the least bit bookish, but I am so enchanted that I must post about them!

Look how cute they are!

The whole family!

By the way, I bet it would be extremely difficult to say “Loch Ness Monster ladles” three times fast. ;)

In honor of International Kiss Day

I’m shockingly late on this, being a romance author and all, but am pleased to share this very helpful infographic* for those of us celebrating. :)

*From 1942, but surely still relevant, right?

Which gown?

You’re a Regency lady and you’ve been invited to a fancy London party (rumor is that the Prince Regent and Mr. Darcy of Pemberley will be there!). But what to wear? Which gorgeous gown will you choose?
