There’s another Facebook party coming up, on March 8. This one will showcase the authors who participate in the Romance, Canadian Eh blog (where I blog on the 23rd of each month). I’m looking forward to getting to know more about my fellow authors there, especially as a number of us are attending the Romancing the Capital readers’ conference in April. As well as chat, there will also be prizes, of course.
I’ll be on at 8PM eastern. (Remember that the time changes early Sunday morning – it’s time to spring forward!) The Facebook event is right here. I hope to see you Sunday night!
It’s Friday again, and time to show off some knitting.
Here’s a new pair of socks I just finished for Mr. Math. The yarn is Briggs & Little Tuffy – I bought the grey, which is called Smoke, and used up the blue (Blue Jeans) from the ends in my stash. You can see that I miscalculated a little and didn’t quite have the same amount of blue for the left sock. That’s why it has a bit more grey on the toe. There wasn’t a pattern for these – I just cast on and knit. The yarn does want to felt a little over time (because I don’t hand wash socks) so the ribbing ensures that the socks maintain some stretchiness.
Briggs & Little is an old Canadian mill, located in the Maritimes. I like their sock wool a lot. It’s tough and wears well, plus it has character. Mr. Math was pretty glad to see these come off the needles, given how cold it is here right now. They went straight onto his feet!
I’m determined to use up the bits and ends of Tuffy in my stash, so there’s another thick sock on my needles now. What do you think?
I’ll be attending Amy Jarecki’s Facebook party next week, to celebrate the launch of her new Scottish medieval romance, A Highland Knight’s Desire. There will be kilts, conversation and prizes, and I’m sure it will be a lot of fun. It’s scheduled for Tuesday March 3, from 6 to 9 eastern, and I’ll be in the spotlight at 8:30. I hope to see you there!
If you’ve been cruising my book pages here on the website, you may have noticed that there are new buy links. One recent addition is GooglePlay, since my books are now available there.
I also added some territory-specific Amazon links, since many of you have been asking after these. Now there are direct links for Amazon.com (which was there before) as well as Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.de and Amazon.ca.
Kobo and iBooks automatically redirect browsers to the appropriate territory affiliate and display, based on the geographic location of the ISP, but Amazon only does that in some cases. Here’s hoping they get that straightened out, as I don’t want to have 11 Amazon links in a row! The only button I might add yet is Amazon Australia. Tell me, Aussies, is that a link you’d like to see here? Or does Amazon redirect you?
My new boxed set, Kinfairlie Knights, is on sale today. This digital bundle includes three full length medieval Scottish romances set at Kinfairlie and Ravensmuir. All three titles are first-in-a-series.
