Weekly Announcements - 13 Sept 08

Carrie Lofty will be teaching a workshop in February for the STAR chapter of RWA. Titled "Beyond Research: Fact and Fiction for the Historical Romance Author," Carrie--a recovering historian--will discuss the importance of integrating historical research that reinforces point of view and creates the most compelling story. The workshop runs from Feb 2-27, 2009 and will be $20. Sign-up begins soon, with details posted here when available. For more information about STAR's workshops, visit their website.


A Question of Improprietyby Michelle StylesMichelle Styles has received the cover for her November UK release, A QUESTION OF IMPROPRIETY. Here's the blurb:

Diana Clare has had enough of London--the balls, the rakes you can never trust... Now, having returned home in disgrace, she is trying to forget what drove her from the ton.

But rake and gambler Brett Farnham, Earl of Coltonby, seems intent on making Diana remember exactly what it was like to be whirled around the ballroom and seduced by the glint in your partner's eye...

But Brett has 'mistress' rather than 'marriage' in mind, and Diana is not sure her reputation can stand up to another scandal...
You can read an excerpt of A QUESTION OF IMPROPRIETY here.


Join us tomorrow when guest author Tracy L. Ronson will discuss her high-seas adventure romance, PIRATES OF THE MIST.


We'll also draw the winner of Jean Adams' BEATS A WILD HEART. Leave a comment for your shot at winning.


Have a good weekend. If you have an announcement to make for next week, email Carrie. See you next week...
