Success!!!


Just wanted to give a shout out to all my blogger buddies who spread the word--and the love about Velvet Haven. It's selling very well, and getting really good reviews! Also, a big thanks to all the readers who've gone out and bought a copy--THANKS!!!!!!

I'll be beginning book 2, which is tentatively titled Mists of Velvet next month. I've written a few scenes here and there, but I'll start the book when I'm finished with LUST, under the Charlotte Featherstone name!

I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate everyone's support for this series!!!! I hope Mists will live up to Velvet Haven! And, in case you're wondering, Rhys MacDonald, will be the hero of the next book. I've already had some readers ask if we'll see more of Suriel and Keir, and if we'll find out more about Rowan. The answer is YES!!!!

So, for the next six weeks, I'll be in my historical fantasy world, with the Dark Fey Princes. We see a bit of Niall, the King of the Unseelie Court in Lust. But first and foremost, we meet Lust, whose name is Thane. Joining Thane on his escapades to the mortal realm is Envy;Thane's Twin brother. As well as Vanity, and also Gluttony. I can't tell you how typing Gluttony makes me smile. He's a not a corpulent guy, but an absolute hedonist! lol! Here's some inspiring pics of the princes. As well, the photo at the top is of the ruins of Glastonbury Abbey. It figures heavily in the opening of Vanity's book. I hope to get to see it--and Glastonbury in real life. I'm planning a research trip to England next May, and I'm going to spend quite a bit of my time between London and Glastonbury!

Anyway....enjoy the Monday Man Candy!
Be Well!!!

  11. Ada! Thanks for commenting. It's so nice to have you here! I'm SO glad you enjoyed Velvet Haven are looking forward to book 2!

    Mists of Velvet (my editor is '80% sure' that this will be the title ;) will release in Feb 2011. I know that seems forever away, but I just couldn't write it any faster for an earlier release. I have too many Charlotte deadlines on the go. But Feb of next year will be here soon!

    Regarding the Fey Princes....it is a new series,under my other name, Charlotte Featherstone. The publisher is Harlequin Spice, and the series is an erotic historical fanasty. it's set in the late Georgian period, in Englandost . The first LUST will release in Feb 2011 (I know...two release in the same month. UGH!)
    I'm planning a site re-design for the launch of the series.
    When I get back cover blurbs and cover art and pre-order links, I'll post them here on the blog!

    Thanks for stopping by! Oh, and sorry, not on Facebook! Or Twitter....I just can't keep up with all those social networking things. But I do try to keep up my blog,and pass out information that way!
    All the best!
