The Lost Letter Release Day, with Victorian-Themed Gift Giveaways & More!

It’s release day for my debut Victorian romance novel The Lost Letter! To celebrate, I’ll be visiting a different website or blog every day this week. There will be interviews, history articles, exclusive excerpts, and giveaways. I’m also hosting a special Victorian-themed release day giveaway here at my own website, featuring quill pens, stationery, and signed paperback copies of my new book. So, without further ado, let’s get started!

The Lost Letter Launch Week Schedule

TUESDAY: Join me at USA Today where I’m being interviewed on the Happy Ever After blog. There’s even a few pictures of my dogs and cats!

WEDNESDAY: Stop by editor Ali William’s website where I’ll be talking about how I use historical research in my Victorian romance novels.

THURSDAY: I’ll be at the Folklore Thursday website with an article on the origins of the Beauty and the Beast fairy-tale, from French folklore to Victorian romance. There’s a book giveaway, too!

FRIDAY: You can find me at the fabulous Get Lost in a Story blog for another author interview. There’s also an exclusive excerpt of The Lost Letter, as well as a book giveaway!
