It’s been a hectic end of 2016, and a busy beginning of 2017 for me. I’m just starting a term as President of the New England Chapter of Romance Writers of America; I’m finishing the final edits on A Lady without a Lord, the much-delayed third book in The Penningtons series (yeah!); I’ve been working with my web designer to implement an updated look for my author web site; and I’m shivering in my socks because of ongoing intermittent problems with the heating system in our house (we’ve been told that the part arriving tomorrow will definitely fix the problem this time…). But I wanted to put up this quick blog post, just to let everyone know that I haven’t fallen off the earth, and will be continuing on with my Ackermann’s fashion plate project starting next week.
I also wanted to ask if anyone would like to join me in participating in the Historical Romance Reading Challenge of 2017? Sponsored by the I Heart Romance & YA Blog, the challenge has different levels of commitment (amusingly linked to different aristocratic titles), so you can pick how few (or how many) books you’d like to aim for this year. I’m going for the “Countess” title, which means I have to read between 16-25 historical romances before the end of 2017. It’s totally do-able, unless 2017 turns into another year from family life hell as 2016 did (crosses fingers and hisses).
I plan to report back on the blog here about my historical romance reading at the beginning of each month, and would love to hear from others about what you’re reading, too!
