Last week, I got some exciting news which I’ve been dying to share with all of you. Alas, my literary agent advised me not to say a word until the ink on the contracts was dry. Well, today the ink is officially dry and I can finally tell you all that I have signed a multi-book deal with Pen and Sword Books (UK)!
My first non-fiction book, titled The Pug Who Bit Napoleon and Other Animal Tales from the 18th and 19th Centuries, will be published as a hardback and filled with lots of fabulous animal stories and illustrations. You can expect it in late 2017!
My next non-fiction book will be A Victorian Lady’s Guide to Fashion and Beauty. This will be published in 2018 and will—as the title suggests—include lots of 19th century advice on women’s fashion and beauty, including hair care, cosmetics, and perfume.
After the first two books, I’m hoping to have time to write A Victorian Lady’s Guide to Courtship and Marriage. We’ll see what happens. As for my 19th century historical romances, I should have more good news to share with you soon. I will post an update as soon as I am at liberty to share.
In the meanwhile, I want to thank each and every one of you who have taken the time to read my articles. Your comments and kind email messages mean more to me than I can say. In the near future, I hope to organize a proper author newsletter for you all with contests, giveaways, and other goodies. Stay tuned!
