Oh my goodness, dear readers. Sales of Second Chance are going through the roof. I'm quite beside my self with joy. It's thrilling to learn that people want to read your stories. Emerald Domino is off to a good start as well this week.

I'm so delighted that I may soon have enough money for a ball gown. I assure you, muslin is fine in its place, but nothing can compare to velvet, silk and satin. Not to mention a spangled underskirt.....

Elinore doesn't understand the need for more gowns and has suggested we spend some money fixing the leaky roof. Well, I daresay not being dripped on in the middle of the night might be prodigiously pleasant, I do feel that one should have priorities after all. And my priorities lie strongly in the being well dressed department.

Puff is of course voting for more catnip toys, and God only know what the other cats are wanting. *sigh* Somehow I shall try to find a way to please everyone. Perhaps I shall sell enough books to provide for everyone's needs. That would be ideal.

Ah well, off to have tea with Elinor. I'm sure she will badger me about the roof. Lud!

Most sincerely yours,  Lady Jane Garner

Well, my darling readers,
Elinor tells me someone put up a bad review of Second Chance on Amazon. How extremely hurtful. Puff is hiding under the bed, he is so upset.

Clearly this person is unaware of how difficult it is to write with 50 cats crawling all over you, not to mention that my typist/editor is Elinor who we love, but admit freely is off her rocker.

So dear reader, please excuse a few typos here and there, as with raw silk they only add to the character and authenticity of the work. When I'm rich and famous, I'll be able to afford a proper editor, but in the meantime, if you desire a better edited work, you might try spending more than 99 cents.

Of course one must take into account that the poor reviewer receives mostly one star reviews herself and is so desperate for fame, she posted her own biography on Wikipedia. Dear Lord, I'm laughing myself silly.

My tales are for your enjoyment, dear readers,  not a stuffy geneology or history lesson. We hear enough boring stories in our lives, it's much better to spend time thinking of ball gowns, kid gloves, spangled underskirts and silk stockings. Don't you think?
Most sincerely yours,  Lady Jane Garner

The New Novella is ready1

Huzzah! Dear readers,
My novella, The Emerald Domino is finally finished. I'm so excited, and Puff is squirming in his own little kitty excitement as well.

Dear Elinore has just uploaded it to the places on the Internet thingy where you can purchase it. So go forth, my darling readers and purchase, for I am desperately in need of a new bonnet!

Here's what the book is about:

             Lady Sophia Efffingham runs away to London rather than be forced into marriage with her weak-chinned cousin Theo. Until she turns eighteen, she’s under the thumb of her greedy aunt and uncle and can’t claim her fortune and the right to control her destiny. Without resources, she’s forced to masquerade as a maid to the handsome Earl of Bekam until her birthday.

            Sophy doesn’t expect to fall in love at first sight with the earl, and she didn’t plan on the risky masquerade she falls into. But she’s determined to save the earl from marrying a society beauty out to snare the earl only for his money. Disguised as the Emerald Domino, she risks everything to sneak into masquerade balls and warn the earl.

            The earl becomes intrigued with this mystery lady and begins to search for her. But Sophy’s relatives find her first and kidnap her, returning to their secluded home in Gloucester. The only person who can save her is the earl. But will he discover her identity and location in time?

Doesn't that sound exciting???? I hope you like it!
Very truly yours, Lady Jane Garner
