Spring is often the time for change, whether big changes like weddings and graduations to the more ordinary (though no less welcome!) ones like the grass turning green again and the days growing warmer.
Things are changing here at the Wenches, too. My book-writing is going to have to take precedence over my blog-writing –– I’m feeling a bit like Alice with the Red Queen urging her to run (or write) faster, faster, faster! –– and, sadly, I’m following Edith and Loretta into Wench Emerita status. This will be my last appearance here at the Wenches for a while.
I promise that Loretta and I will both return in July (tentatively the week of 7/13) with a pair of mutual interviews. She’ll be discussing her new book, DON’T TEMPT ME, in stores June 30. I’ve had the delicious honor to read this book already, and can tell you it’s Loretta Chase at her very best. I can’t wait to ask her questions about what inspired her story and characters, and how exactly she learned so much about harems. 'Nuff said! Loretta in turn will be interviewing me about THE FRENCH MISTRESS, in stores July 7, and I'm sure she's preparing some dandy questions for me as well. Please stop by and visit us then –– we have a few surprises planned! In the meantime, I’ll keep my website (www.susanhollowayscott.com) updated with news about my books and other upcoming events.
Before I go, I want to thank both the Wenches and the readers of this blog. Many thanks for your friendship and support. I'll miss both.
And I can’t think of a better way to close than with this recent news photo, below, taken during President and Mrs. Obama’s visit with Her Majesty the Queen of England. Astute readers of my books watching the newscasts at once recognized the painting behind Mrs. Obama, there in Buckingham Palace: the portrait of Sarah Churchill, Duchess of Marlborough, that graces the cover of my first historical novel, DUCHESS. Three cheers for strong, intelligent women of every era and nationality!
