So perhaps it’s best not to post onto one’s blog after two glasses of wine (or maybe three…) But I’ve just received the cover for my latest book, Once Upon A Scandal, and I love how closely Crimson Romance, my publisher, adhered to the story. It’s a rather crazy plot, with spies, a faked death, and a reemergence for our heroine, Jane, as her mysterious French cousin.
To be honest, it was not a story I was going to write, but I was thrilled to have so many people ask for Jane’s story following her appearance in Once Upon A Wager.
And then she became this very strong-willed, angry character all on her own, a complete departure from her Wager persona. And Benjamin, the hero, crept out of his perfectly coiffed façade, and insisted on his own voice, as well.
I wish I was making this up, but characters in your head really do demand to be heard, don’t you think?
As always, thanks so much for reading.
All the best,
