Next Tuesday–May 6–Michael and Caroline’s story will be released. I had a lot of fun writing To Charm a Naughty Countess, and I hope you’ll have just as much reading it.
But you don’t have to wait until next Tuesday for the blog tour to begin. It’s already underway! Teaser excerpts have been running this week, along with a tour-wide giveaway of all five of my books, and today I’m visiting the Sisterhood of the Jaunty Quills. Here’s the rundown of where I was, am, and will be (how profound that sounds!) for the Naughty Countess blog tour. At every stop, there will be either a book giveaway or a chance to enter the excerpt-tour giveaway:

This lineup is also posted on the News page, where I’ll update links as the posts go live. My hearty thanks to the awesome bloggers and authors who are hosting me this month, and to Lit Connect, event organizer extraordinaire.
Speaking of events: I sneaked mention of two of them into that tour lineup, and I hope you’ll be able to come to one or both. On Tuesday, May 6, there will be a Facebook party to celebrate the Naughty Countess’s release. All the giveaways and chats will happen at this link, where you can stop by now and check out a few pre-event posts and teasers. Some wonderful historical romance authors will be joining me to offer posts and giveaways of their own: Valerie Bowman, Alison DeLaine, Shana Galen, and Vanessa Kelly. Hope you’ll be able to stop by between the hours of 8 and 10 pm ET, when all the hoopla will be happening live!
And if you’re on Twitter, there’s another chance to party the following day. On May 7, we can chat from 8 to 9 pm ET using #naughtycountess. Here’s a nifty little image created by Lit Connect (I told you it was an excellent company); feel free to share this. And you can check out the lineup of Twitter party prizes, plus get more event info, at this Lit Connect link.
Apart from the tour, a Goodreads giveaway is going on until May 15. My publisher, Sourcebooks, is offering 10 copies of To Charm a Naughty Countess.
So–I’ll be here there everywhere over the next few weeks. I hope you can join me!
