Exciting news!!! My agent and I just sold my next book, Sweet Disorder, to Anne Scott at Samhain!
Phoebe Sparks, writer of Improving Tales for children, has vowed never to marry again unless she’s sure it won’t turn into a bickering, resentful mess like her first marriage. The Honorable Nick Dymond has vowed never to get involved in his family’s politicking. But Nick’s mother couldn’t care less about their vows. Nick has moped long enough about his curtailed army career and new limp, and any local resident who marries Phoebe will be legally entitled to a vote in her small town’s upcoming Parliamentary election. So Nick’s mother packs him off to the country with strict instructions to marry Phoebe off to the first local supporter of their political party he can find. When disaster strikes Phoebe’s teenage sister, Phoebe is forced to consider selling her vote—and her hand—but as election intrigue grows darker, she has to admit that what she really wants is Nick.
Yay! I really love this book and I can’t wait to share it with everyone. (No release date yet, but it looks like it will be out sometime in early 2014.)
More details coming soon!
(If you haven’t been on the site before/in a while, my blog was hacked last fall and we’ve just got it up and running again. I’ve got lots of weird historical facts saved up so watch this space for that and a new contest!)

Woooooooot! This is fantastic news. I can’t wait to read it!
Thank you! I’m really proud of the book and I can’t wait for you to read it either!
o/ Thank you!
Thank you! I’m really excited!!
Congratulations! But if it’s being published by Samhain, does that mean it will be in various e-formats only? Or do they publish in paper too?
Thank you! I don’t know all the details yet, honestly. They’re definitely primarily an e-publisher, but according to their website, they publish all their titles of over 50,000 words (which mine definitely is!) as print books, with a delay of about 10 months. (http://www.samhainpublishing.com/submission-faqs/#6.2) I recently read one of their books in hard copy, too.
That’s very good news for me, then. I was worried I wouldn’t be able to read it.
Oh, yes please! I’ve been searching this site like a madwoman for months waiting for THIS and I lay it off for 4 weeks and lo and behold my secret wish is conceded. Congratulations, also Thanks (caps and everything) this is really marvelous news to me.
Thank you so much! That’s really wonderful to hear.
I’m glad you have found a publisher, I’m looking forward to reading your new novel!
