(Almost) a Cover Girl and Birthday Bargains

I mentioned this event in late July, but isn't this a lovely photo on the cover of the new issue of Romance Matters from the RNA! This was taken at the Friday morning event some of us took part in at Blists Hill Victorian Town in Shropshire. Since we were historical novelists, many of us dressed up, to some degree or other. Must admit I had a surprise to see it on the cover - you can just pick me out about a third from the left at the back holding my parasol aloft! A lovely memento of the day.

At the end of this coming week, it's my milestone birthday (I'll let you guess which one) so I decided to put some of my books on special offer during the whole week, where possible, in celebration of the event. Here's the schedule, in case you're tempted - the short stories are under my full name, the others are as Romy:

Reshaping the Past: eight previously published short stories
FREE on Amazon UK and Amazon US on Monday 20th and Tuesday 21st October

Beneath the Treetops: eight published or commended short stories
FREE on Amazon UK and Amazon US on Wednesday 22nd and Thursday 23rd October

Mischief at Mulberry Manor: Victorian novella
Reduced to 77p on Amazon UK and 99c on Amazon US from 20th to 26th October

Dangerous Deceit: Regency novel
Amazon US countdown at 99c from 20th to 26th October
(Unfortunately a pricing problem prevented me doing it on Amazon UK at the moment)

Hopefully, my publisher Tirgearr, is going to put my two Aphrodite and Adonis novellas set on Cyprus at a special price of 77p on Amazon UK and 99c on Amazon US for the week:
The Aphrodite Touch and The Adonis Touch

This is only the beginning of my birthday celebrations which start next Saturday and Sunday and will evidently go on for a few weeks afterwards! It's at times like this that I greatly appreciate my lovely family and friends.

Happy birthday, Rosemary. I hope you enjoy all your extended celebrations.

Jean Bull said...

Congratulations! A Very Happy Birthday, Rosemary!

Carolb said...

Love the cover, and can just see you at the back. :)

I'm sure this year's birthday will be as special as every other one, no matter which milestone birthday it is.

Have fun. :)

Teresa Ashby said...

Happy Birthday, Rosemary.
The cover is lovely and I saw you at the back.
Sounds like you are in for a wonderful time :-) x

Joanna said...

That's a lovely picture, Rosemary, and your birthday celebrations sound very special indeed - wishing you a really happy time. xxx

Anne Stenhouse said...

Happy Birthday Rosemary. When I passed what I think may be the same milestone birthday, I had lots of littleish events, too. It did make the year very special. I hope you enjoy it all. Anne Stenhouse (fellow cover girl, almost)

Rosemary Gemmell said...

Thank you, Mary - I aim to!

Many thanks, Jean!

You're absolutely right - thanks, Carol!

Rosemary Gemmell said...

Thanks, Teresa - I'm looking forward to it all!

Many thanks, Joanna! It's a great picture to keep in my scrapbook as a reminder!

Thanks a lot, Anne - yes, I'm sure it's the same '0'! That's a good photo of you.

Wendy's Writing said...

You must let us know what it's like to be thirty! Hope you have a wonderful day and thank you for the Birthday Bargains - bargains they certainly are. I have some already but not Dangerous Deceit, I don't think.

Anita Chapman said...

Great cover on Romance Matters Rosemary! Hope you have a wonderful special birthday with your family and friends.x

Julia said...

Have a lovely birthday. Mine is coming up at the end of the month.

Rosemary Gemmell said...

Ha, ha, Wendy, that was a few decades ago! Thank you.

Many thanks, Anita!

Thank you, Julia - same to you (we obviously share a star sign!)
