Dear Wonderful Readers—

I have big plans for the new year. Avon Books will release the remaining two books of the “Marrying the Duke” series. Look for THE FAIREST OF THEM ALL to be out May 31st. And then A DATE AT THE ALTAR will be released the end of 2016. I don’t have an exact date yet, but sign up for my newsletter and I’ll give you a heads up.

2016 will also be a year for travel. This June, I will once again be a presenter at the West Texas Writers Academy in Canyon, TX. If you are writing or have wondered how to start, this is an excellent program. You can see the schedule and bios of other instructors here.

In July, Romance Writers of America will be holding their annual conference in San Diego. I will be a part of the mega romance author signing. If you are in Southern California, this is definitely worth the trip. For a list of authors, keep your eye on this site.

September in Spokane, WA, I and a group of my fab historical romance author buddies will gather for what is being billed as a Comic Con for romance readers—the Historical Romance Retreat. I hope you can join us. We are going to have a no-holds-barred good time.

Finally, and closer to home, I’m hosting a panel on the romance novel in Richmond, VA titled “Why We Love Romance Novels: An evening of celebration.” Petra Mayer of NPR and PJ Ausdenmore of The Romance Dish will join Mary Burton and I to discuss these books we all love to read. It is February 16, 7 p.m. at the North Chesterfield Public Library. Registration is required and begins Jan. 19

It is a full year already!

Here is hoping our paths cross. In the meantime, happy reading!
