Blogging at Hearts through History

March 24, 2012

I hope to be back online and chatting up a storm soon. I think the great black mold crisis will soon pass. Unfortuanately, I not only need a new laptop, I also need a new car. (Heavy sigh, discontent… to quote Mork).

I’m blogging on Hearts through History Romance Writers Seduced by History blog site today. Come by for a visit at http://www.heartsthroughhistory.com/behold-thy-mother/

Hopefully, I’ll be off that tiny dumbphone and able to actually answer more emails and posts soon. Right now I’m tearing apart everything I’ve written on one book and rewriting most of it.

Happy reading and Writing!

Someday I’ll Catch Up with Life

September 25, 2011

In the meantime, I’m blogging today at Seduced by History and hope to get a conversation going about Historical Romances: Likes and Pet Peeves. Visit me at http://seducedbyhistory.blogspot.com/2011/09/historical-romances-likes-and-pet.html.

I promise when I finish edits on my current manuscript, I’ll get back on track. Yeah, and who believes that? I’m still trying to come down from the high of seeing my name on the Kindle best-seller list.

Happy Reading and Writing!

Posting at Seduced by History Today

July 26, 2011

I just noticed that a blog I set to publish of few weeks ago didn’t go up. I’ll repost directly later this week.

In the meantime, I’m at Seduced by History today, the official blog of Hearts through History Romance Writers, for Part II of The Ecclesiastical Year. I hope you’ll join me. The first person to post the answer to my Mozart question will receive a print copy of Highland Captive. The site is at http://seducedbyhistory.blogspot.com/2011/07/ecclesiastical-year-part-2-by-mary.html

Until next time,

Happy reading and writing!

Moving Forward with Launch of Highland Captive

May 2, 2011

I’ve come to the realization that I’ll never catch-up, so I’m going to move forward.

When I was putting the purple boxes together, I gravetated to purple and it just kept growing. I have at least two and possibly three boxes. I need to lay it all out so y’all can see a picture, and I’ll do that as soon as the rain stops and the lighting improves. When I know how many boxes I have, I’ll draw the names and e-mail the winners.

In the meantime, today is launch day for Sisters by Choice Book I: Highland Captive! I hope you’ll love Duncan and Alera’s story as much as I did living with them while I wrote it. You’ll also pick up a few clues regarding Alera’s “sisters” and Duncan’s “brothers,” a few of whom show up in various ways. There’s a blurb and excerpt on my Book page.

After facing one of my greatest fears last week, I decided fear would be a good topic for a blog chat. I plan to post it on Wednesday.

Now for today’s contest running through midnight tonight: Who did I dedicate Highland Captive to? All right answers will be put into a drawing and the winner will receive a copy of Highland Captive and heart-shaped miniature clock.

Happy reading and writng!

When Real Life Kicks You in the Rear

March 3, 2011

…you have a choice: fall and get up again or stay down. It’s taken me awhile, but I’m finally up. I won’t go into details; they are not important. But we were in the middle of a contest, and I have a fabulous purple package to send out. So I’m going to be blogging for the next few weeks to finish out the contest. Remember to leave an email addy if you want in on the contest. I’ll also go through the old blog posts to make sure all the prizes were given that should have been.

I’ll be at History Undressed tomorrow doing Early Christian Symbolism Part III. Hope you’ll join me there… In fact, I’ll even count comments on this post.

Happy Reading and Writing!
