GRAND CENTRAL PUBLISHING AND MY BOOK ADDICTION AND MORE PRESENTS…..
WICKEDLY,WITTY HISTORICAL ROMANCE AUTHOR: VICKY DREILING!!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Dreiling is a confirmed historical romance junkie and Anglophile. Frequent business trips to the UK allowed her to indulge her passion for all things Regency England. Bath, Stonehenge, and Spencer House are among her favorite places. She is, however, truly sorry for accidentally setting off a security alarm in Windsor Castle. That unfortunate incident led her British colleagues to nickname her “Trouble.”
When she’s not writing, Vicky enjoys reading, films, concerts, and, most of all, long lunches with friends. She holds degrees in English literature and marketing. A native Texan, she shares her home with her daughter and a spoiled mini-lop rabbit who lives in a slightly gnawed cardboard cottage.You can learn more at: www.VickyDreiling.net
WELCOME VICKY TO MY BOOK ADDICTION AND MORE!!

MBA&M: What made you decide to write historical romance?

VD: I bought my first romance accidentally. Seriously, I didn’t know it was a romance until I got home and read the back cover. I’d never read a romance before and was a bit wary. But then I started reading Judith McNaught’s ALMOST HEAVEN and found myself completely captivated. Of course, I went to the bookstore to purchase all of her books I could find. Since that time, I’ve read other romance subgenres, but historical romance remains my favorite. So that’s why I write it.

MBA&M: What are the challenges in writing a historical romance series?

VD: My books are trilogies, rather than series. When readers found out that my first trilogy did not have a series name, they gave it one! My trilogy became known as the fan-named “How to” series. J  The main difference for readers is that each of my books is a standalone. All three books can be read in any order. I think this is helpful to readers who are just discovering newer authors like me. Interestingly, several readers have told me that they read the first two books again, back-to-back, and said that there was a slightly richer experience for them. But again, all three books can be read in any order. 

 

 

MBA&M: What is on the horizon for you?

VD: I’m writing a new trilogy for my publisher set in Regency England (it’s my favorite!). I will also be publishing a digital prequel to the new trilogy that is tentatively scheduled for fall 2012. One of the minor characters from HOW TO RAVISH A RAKE is the hero in my next book. I’m very excited about the new story.

Other than that, I’ve got several appearances this year at conferences as well as speaking engagements. So 2012 is shaping up to be a very busy year for me. Readers can check my website and blog for upcoming information. Also, readers can sign up for the newsletter to get the most up-to-date information about contests, behind-the-scenes features, and new playlists for my books.

Why Should Rogues Have All The Fun?
SCANDALOUS DESIRES . . . Amy Hardwick has one last Season to shake off her wallflower image and make a love match. If she can’t, she’ll set aside her dreams of romance and return home to a suitor who can provide security-if little else. What she doesn’t count on is the inappropriate-and irresistible-attention lavished on her in a darkened library by rake extraordinaire Will “The Devil” Darcett . .
DEVILISH DELIGHT When Will is caught in a tryst with the ton’s shyest miss, he knows he must offer for her hand. Yet Amy is not the shrinking violet she seems to be. Passion lies beneath her prim exterior and Will is eager to release it. But winning Amy isn’t simply a matter of seduction; first, Will must convince her that he’s mended his wicked ways . . .
