Plaid, Breeches…what’s next?

Historical romance gets short shrift from the traditional publishing industry. Fifteen years ago, it was selling like hotcakes, until they declared that the historical romance market was dead and promptly stopped buying historical romance from authors…which killed the market for them. (Funny how that works). One of the earlier editions of DIANA BY THE

DIANA BY THE MOON – Arthurian Romance novel – Out now!

I've been looking forward to releasing Diana by the Moon under my own imprint.   This is one of my favourite novels - certainly up in the top five, if not higher (I don't ever want to have to rank them properly!) The cover for the previous edition was one I loved -- it captured the
