Hi there,

Thanks hugely for that. It's packed full of good ideas, and I'm going to print it out so I re-read it in detail on the train home.

But right away, I'm really hit by your advice on the website (which like all good advice is obvious only in hindsight). The book is funny. My YouTube videos are hopefully funny. My banner ads are funny. But the site itself... isn't. At all.

One makeover coming up... :)

I'm not a gamer, but GameNight sounds like a blast.

And now I want to play, too. :) So here's my upcoming historical romance:

Michael Ashton, the Duke of Ravensdale, is caught in two scandals, neither of which is his own doing. The first involves a woman (don’t they always), and the second…well, it also involves a woman and a large sum of stolen money. In order to save the reputation Michael has spent his life rebuilding, he must track down the widow of his presumed-dead cousin in order to charm...or seduce her missing husband's whereabouts from her.

After being abandoned a mere hour after her wedding, Blythe Willoughby Ashton wonders how she could have been fooled by such a cad and still feels humiliated and betrayed a year later. Her husband wooed her, married her, took her money and left. When she learns of his death, she decides unceremoniously to go on with her life—without a man. So when Thomas’s cousin—a Duke, no less—shows up uninvited on her doorstep, looking more handsome and irresistible than any man should, Blythe instinctively doesn’t trust him nor does she want to like him. But her traitorous heart doesn’t seem to care. At the same time, Michael’s clear agenda gets quite blurry when the woman he believes an accomplice to his cousin's schemes turns out to be the woman he can give his heart to…and the only one he can’t have.

These have been really interesting to read. I look forward to the last one (whomever it is.)

Whoops, I forgot to give the title. That was brilliant.

It's called Something About Her.
