What's Afoot With Grace:
When Dashing Met Dubious
September 24, 2023
On the blog this week, we’re discussing courage, which I needed when ambling down a certain trail in Utah, much to my surprise. Have a read here.
This week also sees the web store launch of A Gentleman of Dubious Reputation. This is Lord Julian’s second mystery, and for some reason is pre-ordering on the retail sites better than the series opener. I’m told this is a good sign, but it’s a new one on me. Web store link here. Retail links (on sale Nov. 3) here, and the print version is already available.
September opened with Miss Dashing, Mischief in Mayfair Book 8, hitting the shelves, and she too has left the starting blocks at a brisker pace than her immediate predecessor. My thanks to every reader who is making this happen. Hecate, Phillip and I (and Roland) are very appreciative! (Ordering links here if you’d like to dash along with us.)
Dashing, Deals, and Bears, Oh, My!!!

On the blog this week, we’re considering the single best strategy individuals can adopt for coping with climate change, according to at least one expert (and moving north isn’t it). In my case, this involves bear sightings. Leave a comment here, and give us your perspective.
Thanks to all you bestest readers in the whole world, who made Miss Dashing’s launch a roaring success. Stand by for further romantic adventures involving our favorite, fastest horse (and his two-legged friends Gavin and Rose), when Miss Dramatic hits the shelves later this year.
And please do check out this month’s Deals page. The Truth About Dukes (Rogues to Riches No. 5, Robert and Constance…) is enjoying a monthly deal price of $2.99. I list-and-link five other titles by various writin’ buddies also discounted for all of September. Wheeee!
Sizzling in September!!!
September 3, 2023
On the blog this week, we’re pondering love and lies. Add your thoughts to this riveting topic here.
In other news, you’ll find Worth More Than Rubies, a largish holiday novella involving a largish Scottish duke, a librarian (not largish), and some urchins (smallish and grubby-ish), is/soon to be available in print from Amazon. The meta data on the book page looks like it might be taking a few days to sort itself out, but the buy button should be functioning shortly.
And as we ALL know, Tuesday. Sept. 5, will also see the retail publication of Miss Dashing, Mischief in Mayfair, Book Eight. Phillip and Hecate finally get their happily ever after, and if you don’t want to wait until Tuesday to download your copy, the web store version is already on sale, as is a print version.
Launching Lord Julian
August 20, 2023
On the blog this week, I’m maundering on about why reading good fiction can mean going the great Enlightenment thinkers one better, or a whole lot better. Have a read-eroo here.
And please prepare to welcome Lord Julian Caldicott to your shelves or e-readers. A Gentleman Fallen on Hard Times launches Tuesday, August 22, from the retail sites, and if you haven’t ordered your copy yet (or downloaded the early bird from the web store), you can do that here.
And for those keen-eyed observers who watch the Coming Soon page, yes that is a Christmas novella you see lurking near the bottom of the queue… except that Worth More Than Rubies is about twice the size of most novellas. This story first appeared in a duet last year, Yuletide Gems, that was released only on the web store and to libraries. This year’s (significantly expanded) pre-ordering options are here. Wheeee!

My family’s political views range all over the spectrum, from libertarian to liberal, with lots of issue-by-issue gradations in between. I was nonetheless surprised to get into a political discussion over breakfast (while out in Utah) with a brother-in-law with whom I expected to disagree. I’m pretty good at disagreeing, and I was even before I spent decades making my living in courtrooms. I have a reflexive yeah-but capability, and general skepticism toward self-appointed authority figures, which probably comes from being the youngest girl-child in a large, opinionated, family. In sixth grade I took great … Continue reading
