The Secrets of Sir Richard Kenworthy by Julia Quinn Review

The Secrets of Sir Richard Kenworthy Smythe-Smith Quartet # 4 By: Julia Quinn Releasing January 27th, 2015 Avon Romance Sir Richard Kenworthy has less than a month to find a bride. He knows he can’t be too picky, but when he sees Iris Smythe-Smith hiding behind her cello at her family’s infamous musicale, he thinks he might have struck gold. She’s the type of girl you don’t notice until the second-or third-look, but there’s something about her, something simmering under the surface, and he knows she’s the one. Iris Smythe-Smith is used to being underestimated. With her pale hair and quiet, sly wit she tends to blend into the background, and she likes it that way. So when Richard Kenworthy demands an introduction, she is suspicious. He flirts, he charms, he gives every impression of a man falling in love, but she can’t quite believe it’s all true. And when...

Memoir of a C-Suite Swinger

Prologue: Friends of mine have often asked me, “How could you? You, a Republican, a powerful executive, a pillar of the community. Swinging?” At that time, I would have laughed and said, “What’s wrong with a double life?” I was foolish. I thought I was jaded because I indulged in sin but I was actually naïve. I thought I could live a life without love and without faith. A good woman helped me realize the error of my ways. In order to love her, I must cleanse myself of my sinful past. Here is my confession. Room Service: “Mack, your team is waiting,” Claire, my Executive Assistant, handed me my talking points, the meeting agenda, a Montblanc fountain pen, breath mints, and a bag of gummi bears. “Without you, I’d be lost,” I gave her arm a half-pat and made a mental note, yet again, to do something for her,...

The State Of Publishing – 2015 – My Perspective

For newer writers trying to make a living from our stories, times are challenging in Romanceland. Prices have dropped. The number of books sold per title has decreased. The marketing required to be noticed has increased. There’s been quite a bit of finger pointing, folks assigning blame. Being a business gal, I have a different perspective on events. Having already shared this with a few writers and bloggers, I want to talk about this here, hoping you’ll add your insights (in the comments). Note: I don’t have any insider information. This is based on my observations only, as a writer and a reader. I could be totally in outer space (though my predictions have come true thus far) but I’ve seen these same trends in other industries (like music and soft drinks and…well…almost every other industry). The Ideal Publishing Environment The ideal business environment has supply (roughly) equaling demand. The...
