WOW. Simply, wow. That is the only word I can use to describe this masterpiece. (Romance Novel TV)

Scandal is a Regency romance novel featuring a complex and dysfunctional pair. If you like intense passion, deep emotions, and unpredictable plots, then you’ll love Carolyn Jewel’s pulse-pounding and wonderfully-written tale of love.

A Little Help! Your Opinion Needed

Sunday, July 10th, 2011

This is for a Historical Romance series title — NOT a book title! Vote and/or suggest in the comments.

The series link is a medallion said to have magical properties. But this it’s only rumored magic. Not actual magic. The series is in no way paranormal. Thanks for your opinion and suggestions!

My editor says I can give you a peek at the cover for Not Wicked Enough. There will be some refinements, but it’s pretty awesome, I think.

News about The Spare

Monday, June 14th, 2010

My historical The Spare is going to be reissued in October 2010. Well, gosh! That was a bit of a surprise. I found out today when I came home to find a package from Dorchester Publishing. I thought huh, maybe they’re sending me the Dutch editions they told me about a few years ago. At last. But no.

It was a pile, a really big pile, of book covers. Great, I thought. Someone at Dorchester must have been cleaning out their desk and decided to send these to me. What do I do with— Hey. Wait a minute!

The covers, I realized, were not quite the same as the original. The same image, yes. But the colors were different and my name was really REALLY big compared to the title. And over my name, it said Author of Indiscreet and Scandal. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a publisher pimping books by a different publisher right there on the cover.My photo of the 2010 cover of The Spare

Here’s a picture of the original cover. More pink, as you can see and my name is a lot smaller. Glossy, as opposed to matte and embossing on the words. Original (2004) cover of The Spare

What I think would be awesome is if they were to re-issue my other Dorchester historical, Lord Ruin. Considering how many emails I still get about that book– it came out in 2002 and I’ve been getting several emails a year ever since — and considering that it’s almost impossible to find even used, I think readers would be very happy. So would I, actually.

If anyone would like a signed copy of the cover flats, I have some of both and would be happy to send signed ones upon reasonable request and while supplies last.


Saturday News and Information

Ah. It’s Saturday. A day when I do not have to go to work tomorrow.

My copy edits for My Immortal Assassin are done and ready to be returned. I’ve seen the proposed cover and it’s awesome.

The artwork I commissioned for the digital version of my story Moonlight, which will appear in the Mammoth Book of Regency Romance, is final. Blog readers, here it is, scaled down to 25% and converted to jpeg. The original is even more awesome.

The artist is Seamus Gallagher and I think I might love him more than Alexander Skarsgard even though I’ve only seen his artwork.
