Friday, April 7th, 2017

Calling all francophiles and francophones: there are now two editions of La mystérieuse histoire de l’Œillet Rose! (Aka The Secret History of the Pink Carnation.)

If you’re in France, keep an eye out for the brand new French edition at your local librarie on April 14th!

The Masque of the Black Tulip should be following shortly….

And here’s a quick interview en français avec les Lectrices Diva about Pink, et al.

Meanwhile, if you’re in French Canada, you can find the first three books in the Pink series looking like this:

EMERALD RING en Français

Monday, June 27th, 2016

On 21 Juillet, The Deception of the Emerald Ring will be making its debut en français! You can find it under the title L’Imposture de l’Alliance Émeraude.

Emerald Ring French

When I got the news, I did some counting on my fingers and it dawned on me that, as of a few months from now, it will be ten years since Emerald Ring was first published in the U.S.

It really doesn’t feel like it should be quite that long, does it?

One thing I’ve noticed about Emerald Ring covers over the years: they tend to be very, very green….

FALL OF POPPIES Crosses the Pond

Thursday, April 7th, 2016

We interrupt our regularly scheduled Pinkoramae for this public service announcement:

Fall of Poppies debuts in the UK today!

FallofPoppiesREV2 the-record-set-right

On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month…

November 11, 1918. After four long, dark years of fighting, the Great War ends at last, and the world is forever changed. For soldiers, loved ones, and survivors the years ahead stretch with new promise, even as their hearts are marked by all those who have been lost.

As families come back together, lovers reunite, and strangers take solace in each other, everyone has a story to tell.

In this moving anthology, nine authors share stories of love, strength, and renewal as hope takes root in a fall of poppies.

Sending hugs across the Pond to Hazel Gaynor and Kate Kerrigan: if only we could all be there to celebrate together!

If it’s five o’clock in London, that means I get to pop open a bottle of bubbly at noon New York time, right?

You can also find Fall of Poppies in the US and Canada and in e-form.

Monday Give Away: UK Pink Collection

Monday, October 19th, 2015

Just when I think I’ve uncovered the last of the author copies…

I opened a box that I’d thought was a care package of books from a friend. It turned out to be another stack of UK Pink books, from the first Pink up through The Mischief of the Mistletoe.

There are just enough in there to make up one set of Pink I through Mistletoe.

Monday Give Away

Monday, September 21st, 2015

I have found more books.

I know. It’s insane, isn’t it? Just when I think I’ve reached the bottom of the stock of author copies, another box turns up. This time? UK editions.

I’ve resigned myself to the fact that we’re just going to have to keep doing give aways. How long these will go on, I can’t say. Possibly until the elves who are replenishing that stack of boxes get bored or go back to their assigned shoemaker or whatever it is closet elves are actually supposed to be doing.

Where was I before I got distracted by elves? Oh, right. UK editions.

In a tape-wrapped box in the back of the closet, I discovered the UK editions of Pink Carnation, Black Tulip, Emerald Ring, Crimson Rose, Night Jasmine, and Mistletoe:

Pink England blacktulipengland Emeraldringengland Crimson UK Night Jasmine UK Mistletoe UK

I have two stacks of UK editions to give away. (One with Mistletoe, one sans Mistletoe, since Turnip appears to have wandered off somewhere, possibly into another, as yet undiscovered, box.)

For a stack of UK Pink books, here’s your question:

— Which cover do you like best?

I’ll choose two winners by random number generator and announce the results here on Thursday.

As Colin would say, “Cheers!”

The Ashford Affair, aka Ashford Park en français, comes out today in France as a livre de poche!

What do you think of the new paperback cover?

There’s something rather nicely summery about it, isn’t there?

Here it is next to the French hardcover:

The hardcover is available from Presses de la Cité; the paperback from Pocket. You can also find both (as well as the French Kindle edition) via
