No, that’s not a typo. My dooryard is awash in mud, grit, ice, melted snow, unmelted snow and general yuck. We’ve had wacky weather lately and have lost power for long and short periods, resulting in two unpaid days off from school for me. I can’t decide what is worse—no hot bath or no computer access. Last week I reluctantly crawled out from under three blankets and drove around town to get warm, grab some tea at a take-out window (my hair was too hideous to go inside) and charge up my cellphone. There is no question if I traveled back in time to the Regency era, I would go insane.

Despite the iffy electricity lately, I’m close to getting finished with the revisions for Mistress by Midnight. And I’m giving away another ARC of Mistress by Mistake this month to someone who follows me on Twitter/has signed up for my newsletter! All you have to do is fill out the short form on the contest page and/or click on the Twitter button. If you’re already a subscriber/follower, you’re all set.

So, is Spring happening where you are? Tell me and make me jealous. What would you miss most if you traveled back in time?
