Some of my more crafty Gentle Readers out there have already spotted this fact ~ yes my release dates have changed.
- Etiquette & Espionage (The Finishing School Book the First) is still releasing February 5, 2013. It will be in hard back. You can pre-order on Amazon or any fine bookstore online or near you. The print book may ship BEFORE the release date. It may be available in stores BEFORE the release date. The ebook will drop ON the release date. The audio book is suposed to be out around the same time, it will be available for digital download but it is impossible to know the exact date. I doubt the CD will be easily available for this series . . . ever.
- Curtsies & Conspiracies (The Finishing School Book the Second) has been moved forward to November of 2013. Cover art reveal coming soon.
- Prudence (The Parasol Protectorate Abroad series Book the First) has been bumped to March of 2014.
There are a number of reasons for this change, but mainly it has to do with me and what I’ve been able to write this year. I thought I could balance writing one book every six months along side my releases, touring and other events, but it turns out I was a little ambitious. If you ever see me at the buffet table you’ll notice I have a tendency to bite way more than I can chew! So the editors and I had a confab and we are shifting things about to compensate. In 2014 I hope to drop back to one book every eight months.
I’m sorry to disappoint those of you who are more in the adult-only book camp, but I need to stay sane and not burn out so I can write more! And more! In that vein, I’m hoping to at least have a short story for you during the wait, set in the Parasol Protectorate universe. But no promises.
On the other hand, this will give you the chance to immerse fully in Sophronia’s world in 2013. Two books in the same year in the same story arc!

“A two or three tiered table with strong wooden legs which can be stood in earthen saucers kept full of water, will be found most useful in the storeroom. On it all open tines, sugar c., can be kept in perfect security…”

BOOK DE JOUR!
Etiquette & Espionage: Finishing School Book 1
It’s one thing to learn to curtsy properly. It’s quite another to learn to curtsy and throw a knife at the same time. Welcome to Finishing School.
Fourteen-year-old Sophronia is a great trial to her poor mother. Sophronia is more interested in dismantling clocks and climbing trees than proper manners–and the family can only hope that company never sees her atrocious curtsy. Mrs. Temminnick is desperate for her daughter to become a proper lady. So she enrolls Sophronia in Mademoiselle Geraldine’s Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality.
