The Mercenary’s Bride, book one of the Brides of Inverfyre series of medieval Scottish romances, is coming in audio!
This medieval Christmas novella has been narrated by Tim Campbell and is on its way to retailers now. I’ll add buy links to the Audio page for the Brides of Inverfyre as they go live, but you can listen to a sample right now.

This past month, I’ve updated the print interiors for the True Love Brides series of medieval Scottish romances. This is a job I’ve been meaning to do for quite a while. They were the only print editions in the Ravensmuir world that didn’t have the pretty illuminated caps at the beginning of each chapter – like this:
When I set up a book interior for printing, I use a template, and the template that includes these pretty caps is different than the one I was using when the True Love Brides and the Champions of St. Euphemia series were first published. I redid the interiors for the Champions of St. Euphemia when the covers were updated and noticed that the page count with this template ended up being lower – that can mean (depending on the territory and portal) that the price of the print book is slightly lower. That was all the impetus I needed to update the True Love Brides, as well.
The Warrior’s Prize, for example, which is the longest of the four books, has gone from 356 pages to 326 pages. The books look the same on the outside, but they’re prettier inside. They might be a little cheaper, too. 🙂
I turned on the virtual tour of Ravensmuir this morning. If you’ve subscribed, you’ll receive the first email today. (If you don’t see it, look in your spam folder.)
The idea of this tour is to give you a peek behind the scenes in the creation of each book set in the Ravensmuir world. The tour “visits” each one in turn and in order, starting with The Rogue. There’s “stop” – or an email message – once a week on the tour once you join. As well as more information about the book, there are discounts and links to other free resources. I think it’s fun and hope you do, too.
You can join the tour at any time. New subscribers will receive the first message after joining the tour. Everyone receives a message once a week until the tour is completed.
If you haven’t signed up for the virtual tour yet, you can do that right here.
