Seduced by the blushing young debutante…
They’re calling me to the bookstore today. I’m so excited about these three releases, all debuts of some fashion:
My local RWA chaptermate and fellow Ballantine author, Jennifer Lyon, is debuting a hot new paranormal series with Blood Magic. The book got a TOP PICK from Romantic Times, so I can’t wait to read it! Plus, the cover is gorgeous.
Beaumonde chaptermate Miranda Neville (who happened to have all the right information about opera house lighting just when I needed it, bless her!) debuts with a sexy, sophisticated Regency-set historical today, Never Resist Temptation. ETA: Courtney Milan is giving away a copy on her blog. Enter by February 27 for a chance to win!
I suppose it’s only natural that right now I’m drawn to debuts. I mean, I’m like that 16-year-old Regency miss just on the cusp of her introduction to society, watching all the older girls to see just how they handle the quadrille or carry their reticules, or… Okay, that analogy has run its course. You get the point. I’m reading, and watching, and learning…and just hoping that when it’s my turn, I manage to carry it off with as much grace as they do. I found myself wondering today, just what I would do the night before my first book releases. I mean, sleep would be out of the question. As would anything that required a great deal of focus, like reading. Laundry, perhaps? A marathon of John Hughes movies? As I write this, it’s very late (or very early, depending on your frame of reference), and I wonder what these three ladies are doing right now…
What would you be doing, the night before your debut?
Also ETA: If you had suscribed to my posts on the old WordPress blog, you’ll have to subscribe again, apparently. Of course, those of you who really need to see this notice won’t, because this post won’t appear in your reader… hm.
