Hello, everyone! It’s so nice to be back in Bloglandia for a while. It feels like it’s been a long and….interesting….winter, and I’ve never been more grateful for great books to read and things to write.
Speaking of things to read….my publisher just sent me a few extra ARCs of my next Amanda Carmack mystery (Murder at Westminster Abbey, book two of the Kate Haywood Elizabethan Mysteries, out in April). So let’s give them away today! I have 4 copies, so 4 commenters will be winners. And now I’m diving back into revisions for The Book That Will Never End (affectionately called, of course…)
1559. Elizabeth is about to be crowned queen of England and wants her personal musician Kate Haywood to prepare music for the festivities. New to London, Kate must learn the ways of city life and once again school herself as a sleuth.
Life at the center of the new royal court is abuzz with ambition and gossip—very different from the quiet countryside, where Kate served Elizabeth during her exile. Making her way among the courtiers who vie for the new queen’s favor, Kate befriends Lady Mary Everley. Mary is very close to Elizabeth. With their red hair and pale skin, they even resemble each other—which makes Mary’s murder all the more chilling.
My own website (sadly behind on updates, which are getting done this weekend, but lots of Elizabethan info and pics…)
So what have you been doing this winter??? Read anything good lately? what will do you when (if) it warms up?? Do you like mystery series with a recurring character? (I’m finding I love getting to stay with Kate for multiple books and see how she grows and changes. She gets a bit of romance in this book, too….)
