An Improper Suitor: Now in Large Print



The new Large Print edition of An Improper Suitor is now available from Thorndike in the USA. It can be ordered through Powells Books, Amazon.com, and others. For UK readers, the Chivers edition will be available soon.



I love Powells Books, by the way. When I lived in Portland, Oregon, I loved going to the City of Books. It was an enormous place, taking up a whole city block, with nine different color-coded rooms, and rows and rows of books, kind of like university libarary stacks, but managing to be very warm and friendly at the same time. Believe it or not, it was so big, they actually offer tours! If you don't believe me, check this out: Powells City of Books Tours.




Of course, needless to say, it was a dangerous place. First, because you could easily get lost and wonder endlessly among the stacks of books (what a horrible fate for a book lover!), or you could lose a great deal of money (I really, really wanted some of those books. I really should go back and get them).



But to get back to An Improper Suitor. It's quite thrilling looking through different libraries and seeing the Large Print edition already listed in their catalogues, with many copies on loan.

Of course, it's very time consuming as well. Shouldn't I be writing my new novel...?
