Japanese Cover Art for Curtsies and Conspiracies Plus Ketchup

I believe the translation has now hit shelves in Japan, so here, Gentle Reader is the cover art for Curtsies & Conspiracies in Japanese. Isn't it the cutest thing ever!?!

I do love the way the Japanese covers always take from a scene in the book itself. It's just so much fun to see the words interpreted for cover art in a manga style.

Things have been pretty low key, professionally, these days. Lots of good news in the arena of Spotlights and Best of Year lists (thanks for voting for me!) I mainly tweet and FB about them, or they show up bellow in the Book News section.

I'm taking a break from travel and other events during the holiday season, in order to concentrate on writing Manners & Mutiny, the last Finishing School book. I didn't even make it to the Dicken's Christmas Fair this year.

My website is also undergoing a bit of a touch up as well, particularly the Finishing School section. As always, I appreciate your thoughts on the site. Are you finding the information you want? Anything missing? Any typos?

Barring that I hope you have a wonderful bit of a holiday, my break will be over New Years week so I'll be around until then.

Drink tea. Carry on.
