I’m snowed under right now with my third book (due to my editor in February) and some guest spots for my upcoming blog tour, so this will be pretty quick and dirty:

1)  A Lady Awakened has a trailer!  You can see it on my website, or on its own special page at Romance at Random.  Let me know what you think.

2) A Gentleman Undone has a cover!  It looks like this:

Cover for A Gentleman UndoneAbs! Purple! Quote from Madeline Hunter! The word “erotic!” A swirly title font, just like A Lady Awakened!

I’ll be curious to see how it’s received. I’m told that bare male torsos sell books, but I also know a lot of people feel pandered-to with those covers, or just find them outright cheesy.  I like that he seems to just be having a pensive moment there, as opposed to, you know, pawing at the heroine or staring out at us with a come-hither look.

If I had time, I’d run a couple side-by-side close-ups, one to test my suspicion that this is the same model on the cover of Tessa Dare’s A Night to Surrender, and one to see whether you all think that this guy and the woman on the cover of A Lady Awakened make a plausible pair of siblings.  Maybe later.

3)  A Lady Awakened‘s release is a little over a month away, and I’ll be doing some promotional stuff:

  1. A blog tour with giveaways.  I’ll post the whole schedule once I’ve got it finalized, but the first stop will be December 1 at Manga Maniac Cafe.
  2. Micro-excerpts of A Lady Awakened on my Facebook page.  I’ll be doing these every few days through the month of December, so check out my page if you haven’t already.

Okay, back to work.  I’ve read a number of really good books lately and I hope you all have too :)
