Um, the seasons changed!

I went to England!
My eldest started first grade! *sob*
Goddess of the Hunt came out in Russian!
Booklist mentioned me as one of the “new stars of historical romance” – woot! (If you’re looking for new historical authors, be sure to check out that list.)

And I’ve received so much lovely reader mail. I’ve noticed a few common questions cropping up, so I thought I’d go ahead and post answers here for anyone else who might be wondering.

Will Claudia get her own book?

I love this question. I love that so many readers have cared about her, asked about her, and want to see her happy in life and love. She was definitely a character who came alive for me. I hope I do get to write her story someday, but it won’t be happening right away. For one thing, she is still pretty much a teenager in my mind. I need some time to think about the kind of woman she’ll become, and how her life experiences will have shaped her. Second, right now I’m busy with other projects. Which brings me to the other question I’ve been fielding a lot lately…

What are you working on next?
I’m thrilled to report that I’m working on the first book in a brand new Regency historical series. This one has an alpha hero and an alpha heroine mixing it up in a fun, flirty battle-of-the-sexes. Regency-style, of course! Because I caught up to myself with that back-to-back schedule, this next book won’t be out until we’re well into 2011. Once I have a release date (not to mention a title and cover!), I’ll be sure to share them with you! Watch this space for more details.

This weekend, I’ll be in Sacramento, speaking at the Sacramento Valley Rose chapter of RWA. Really looking forward to it! Hope you all have a great weekend, too.

    A new entry! 🙂 You’re my favorite regency writer (well, you and Julia Quinn), so I’m thrilled to read about your upcoming work. Do we get to hear about your trip to England?

    Iliadfan, you can follow her England trip on Twitter.

    I was in Sacramento last weekend. Too bad for me!

    Thank you all so much for your comments! I’m sorry to be such an absentee blogger. Deadline approaches… 😯

    One of these days, I really want to get to blogging about my England trip! But it will probably have to wait until after I finish the current book.

    Are you still going to write Claudia’s story?
