The Princess and the Me

sunny, mild, temps 19 - but heading for a high of 26.

Three days to go before THE BEAUTIFUL MYSTERY is out!

Such an important day - we have the pre-launch of THE BEAUTIFUL MYSTERY. This is a party Danny and Lucy from Brome Lake Books host locally, so that friends and neighbours get first crack at the new release. This year it's at the Knowlton community centre, which holds 200 - and is now 'standing room only' for the event - at 2pm today.

Had some amazing news yesterday!!!

People Magazine has made THE BEAUTIFUL MYSTERY its lead review, the Editor's Pick and given it four out of four stars!

Among other things, their reveiw says: "With enormous empathy for the troubled human soul—and an ending that makes your blood race and your heart break—Penny continues to raise the bar of her splendid series.”

This is in the edition of People just on the stands (with Princess Kate on the cover). Yipppeee! So much celebrating around here. And just four more days before THE BEAUTIFUL MYSTERY is launched.

One week from today I'll be in San Francisco for an event at Book Passage, in Corte Madera - at 4pm.
If you'd like more information on my tour schedule just go to the events page on my website:

See you there!

Louise, all the complimen†s and awards are so well deserved. From your very first book, i , along with all your followers, was entranced with the characters you created, and made so alive. Is it any wonder that we all feel that we know these people, and that we are as protective of them as your wonderful striving to keep their authenticity intact. We push you for more, look forward to every new book, and rejoice with you when the plaudits come along. Thankyou for your hard work on our behalf. Nuala
