Shameless Book Promo and Very Little Knitting


Here is one of the hazards of being a writer: Deadlines. They make blogging particularly hard when you are trying to finish a book so I've been pretty non-existent so far. The book is nearly done, but in the meantime I would invite you to try my fresh on the shelves book, HIS MISTRESS BY MORNING, (it comes out today!) I'm really excited about this story because it was like knitting with some Debbie Bliss Cashmere--the writing was great fun and I loved the final story. I hope you have a chance to give it a try. Here is a little synopsis and of course, the beautiful cover. Seeing your book out in the bookstore is like having someone ask you were you got your lovely sweater and you have to modestly tell them you made it.

HIS MISTRESS BY MORNING
by Elizabeth Boyle
ISBN 0-06-078402-7

Be careful what you wish for . . .
When a promised inheritance turns out to be a fraud, shy spinster, Charlotte Wilmont, makes an impetuous wish that despite her lack of charm and fortune, she could capture the heart of the one man whom she's forever adored-Sebastian, Viscount Trent. With that utterance, Charlotte awakens shocked to find herself entwined with her beloved Sebastian but the respectable man she knew is now a most rakish devil and she is . . . . well, by some inexplicable magic, London's most infamous mistress.

Being the scandalous Lottie Townsend affords Charlotte unimaginable freedom -passionate nights with Sebastian, endless days of shopping and adoring fans. But all too soon, Charlotte finds that being one man's mistress isn't the same as being his wife. Yet if she returns to her old, respectable life, can Charlotte trust there will be enough magic left to recapture Sebastian's heart . . . and reawaken his rakish desires?

Just popping in to echo everyone's compliments on the cover. Gorgeous color. But you're right ... its fall, your heroine needs a sweater. Maybe you can knit her one?

Hope the book is a bestseller for you!
