Events, Excitement & Eloisa James!

It is official! Eleven Scandals to Start to Win a Duke's Heart is out in the world in all it's pink glory! I'm so thrilled to have heard from many of you, who have already hunted down a copy and begun reading (and in some cases finished reading!!) Juliana & Simon's story! My readers are the BEST!

Today is an even bigger day than yesterday, though, so hang onto your hats!

After some writing this morning, I'm headed off to a studio in midtown Manhattan to meet with Eloisa James for our LIVE online virtual booksigning and author chat! We will be talking about romance (I've got plans to get her to chat about Josie & Mayne and about her incredible article on history and sex and how romance reconciles the two) and answering readers' questions (yours, I hope!) live!  You'll also be able to order signed, personalized books from both Eloisa and me as part of the event! It all starts at 5pm ET...I hope you'll join us at these events are particularly fun because the chat box on the livestream page gets...well...chatty, and you'll meet other romance readers from around the world!

But the live event with Eloisa isn't the only thing that's happening today! After that, I'll be headed to WORD Bookstore in Brooklyn for a book party with two other fabulous authors who also have new releases out...Maya Rodale and Kieran Kramer! Kieran was just selected as an Author to Watch by RT Book Reviews, and her latest, Cloudy With a Chance of Marriage, is already burning up the lists...and Maya's A Tale of Two Lovers continues her Writing Girls series, about young women writers in the Regency (added bonus, she has a Simon! AND a Julianna!!)!

I'm SUPER excited for this event...WORD is taking questions via email (, and we'll be recording the whole thing to share online, ultimately! It's going to be incredibly fun, and with Maya & Kieran around, incredibly funny! If you're a New Yorker with nothing to do tonight...please join us...and if you're not a New Yorker, consider sending in your questions anyway! We promise to share the answers!

All in all, a busy day...especially considering the fact that I need to write for a bit before I start getting cuted up for the festivities...but thank you, thank you, thank you for being so awesome and reading my blog...and also my books. You're the best part of this whole gig. Really.
