Duels & Deception was launched Monday, April 10th as a Tea and Talk at the Sacred Heart School in Halifax.
Librarian, Laurie T, began with an introduction, after which three student volunteers read (with great verve) excerpts from Duels & Deception. It was amazing to hear my words being spoken aloud and to watch the reaction of the girls. When it was my turn, I talked about Robert and Lydia and the reasons behind the relentless search for a good match by the mamas of Regency upper society. I addressed the complicated process of introductions and answered questions offering advice for aspiring authors and discussing the influence of my travels on my writing.
Fortunately, the bell rang just as my nerves were about to render me speechless and we adjourned to the library for tea and cake!
