Cover Reveal and October Events

I'm so delighted to reveal the lovely cover image for my new historical romance, Midwinter Masquerade, which is being released by Tirgearr Publishing on October 24th! Although the story takes place in the Regency era of 1816, it's not quite as traditional as my previous one and after the beginning in Edinburgh, it is mostly set in the southern Scottish countryside around the winter solstice. And, yes, there is a masquerade ball towards the end! I love the winter feel of the image as it captures the setting beautifully. I'll post a little bit more about it on my Romancing History blog in a day or two. And, of course, I'll be arranging an online launch party once it's released.

Other events happening in October include a great Christmas in October giveaway of YA and tween books every Monday and Thursday all month on Penny Estelle's blog. The Jigsaw Puzzle is mentioned on October 7th. Lots of lovely books on offer to some lucky commenters, beginning on October 3rd.

Also during October, Karen Nutt is featuring Flash Fiction stories for Halloween all month on her blog and my story will be posted on October 27th. Again, there are lots of giveaways on offer to commenters. Should be fun and it starts on October 1st.

From Thursday 3rd October, I'll be featuring authors now and then on the blog again, so please look in on Thursday to meet wonderful debut author Sara Bain.
