I have not posted in a while, but the big day–my son and daughter-in-law’s renewal of their wedding vows–passed without a hitch on July 7. It was a small wedding (about 35 people), but most of them stayed here last weekend. Things are much quieter now, and the summer fun can begin!

Japanese rights were sold for Mistress by Midnight, and shortly after learning that I got a few Japanese editions of Mistress by Mistake. Since a Japanese restaurant is about to open nearby, I’ll know where to go to celebrate. Isn’t the cover gorgeous? (even though there are strawberries instead of raspberries on the cover, LOL)

The new Edwardian series for Berkley has been named: Ladies Unlaced. I playfully called it “Gibson Girls Gone Wild” as I was writing the first book, In the Arms of the Heiress. And I’m busy with book two, which has a fabulous name (thanks Elyssa Patrick!) that I’m too superstitious to mention.

It has been in the 90s in Maine, so I’ve been hanging out in my air-conditioned writing room or floating in the lake. Hope you’re comfortable where you are!
