I've been blogging all over creation about my new release, THE DEVILISH MONTAGUE, so my wee little fingers are weary. That's my excuse for not stopping by here more often!
And now I have another release or re-release or whatever you'd like to call it. Bookviewcafe will be releasing DENIM AND LACE in association with historical fiction week on Tuesday. BVC sells both epub and mobi format, so it's far easier for me to link my books to them than to every other distributor under the sun. Besides, they're good people and friends, and I trust them more than distributors I can't talk to everyday. So if you want to see one of my westerns, an older Rita finalist, hop over and take a look.
You see what constant promo blogs do to me? I'd only meant to stop by and mention my next pet peeve, cut from my own books as I edit for digitalization. Tell me how many ways this partial sentence is wrong (from TEXAS LILY): Before reaching out one big hand to remove Lily's shawl...
Really, I know we were writing 135k-150k words back then, but how much padding does any one sentence need? What else would he reach out besides his hand? Duh, huh? And if he removes the shawl, don't we know he's reached for it? These older books are packed with obvious and unnecessary description of action. Yawn. I think I cut that sentence to read Cade took Lily's shawl.
If he needs to put his big hands anywhere, it should be on Lily in a hot scene!
