More Happy Holiday News

I just heard from my Esteemed Editor that my latest manuscript, A LOVER'S KISS needs only one minor revision -- I have to shorten a long scene. I kinda thought that might happen, so no nasty surprise there and whoo hooo! Not too difficult (she says, hoping the gods aren't chortling madly over this mortal's foolishness).

This is really good news, because at this time of year, I've got a lot to do. I'm not the greatest delegator in the world, so it's partly my own fault, but there it is.

Which brings me to a real downside of having a book out at the end of December. I have less time to do any PR, and I fear other women (my primary audience) are in the same boat -- too busy to notice my PR efforts. I just hope they're not too busy or tired to buy the book and enjoy it!

Therefore, I have decided that I'm going to put my book cover and blurb at the bottom of every blog post from now until, well, I stop. :-)

Lady Elizabeth d'Averette chafes at the restrictions of a noblewoman's life, and her yearning for adventure seems to be coming true when she meets the remarkably handsome Sir Oliver de Leslille. But Sir Oliver is no true knight, and the handsome Irishman has other secrets, too. Soon Lizette finds herself embroiled in a rescue, as well as the chance to stop a treasonous conspiracy and protect her own family from men out to use them for their own evil schemes.

The Irishman who comes to Lizette's aid may be more honorable than many a knight, but he's still an outlaw. When they fulfill their mission to save his brother, her family, and the kingdom, they'll have to part...or will love -- and a clever thief and determined young woman -- find a way?

"Moore's medieval starts on an exciting note and maintains that sensation over the course of the whole book. She's created a great hero and heroine who take on a vile, well-written villain, and the love scenes, even though they're mild, add a great deal to the story."

I LOVE that cover, Margaret! Beautiful colours.

I don't think you have much to worry about.

Your core fans are waiting (some quite impatiently... LOL).

Plus at this time of year,
we're looking for books to read and books to give. A soon-to-be Margaret Moore classic is an easy and quick buy (no having to read the back cover or the first chapter to determine if it is a quality buy).
