When Good Earls Go Bad Edits

by Megan Frampton on October 12, 2014

Matthew Macfadyen DarcyI’m working on edits for my February 2015 novella, When Good Earls Go Bad. It’s one of my zanier books; the heroine is exceedingly literal, and the hero is quite pragmatic. They share a love of books, toast, and honesty. Here’s a bit from when Annabelle and Matthew are walking home, and she’s taken his arm:

Goodness, he was strong. Maybe he did do his own housework; bringing in firewood, beating rugs, moving furniture around, and other tasks would certainly build up his muscles. Perhaps there were different requirements for Earls of the Scottish persuasion so it was necessary for them to be all muscular, as well as handsome.

Or maybe it was only this one. In which case she was quite pleased she had not ended up with, say, the gouty Earl with the high-pitched cackle and a penchant for eating smelly fish.

Not that she knew if this one ate smelly fish, but she knew about the rest of it.

After I turn the edits in for this one, I’m launching into edits for Put Up Your Duke, and then–? I’m not sure!

DUKE'S GUIDE TO CORRECT BEHAVIOR coverSo it has been a dog’s age (bow wow!) since I posted here, and all sorts of things have been happening.

To whit, I have a new book contract with Avon for both print and digital, and the first book in my Dukes Behaving Badly series is titled The Duke’s Guide to Correct Behavior, and here is what it’s all about:

All of London knows the Duke of Rutherford has position and wealth. They also whisper that he’s dissolute, devilish, and determinedly unwed. So why, everyone is asking, has he hired a governess?

When Miss Lily Russell crosses the threshold of the Duke of Rutherford’s stylish townhouse, she knows she has come face to face with sensual danger. For this is no doting papa. Rather, his behavior is scandalous, and his reputation rightly earned. And his pursuit of her is nearly irresistible—but resist she must for the sake of her pupil.

As for the duke himself, it was bad enough when his unknown child landed on his doorstep. Now Lily, with her unassuming beauty, has aroused his most wicked fantasies—and, shockingly, his desire to change his wanton ways. He’s determined to become worthy of her, and so he asks for her help in correcting his behavior.

But Lily has a secret, one that, if it becomes known, could change everything . . .

The Duke’s Guide comes out November 25, 2014, and it is already in copy edits (!). And now, I am writing a novella for one of the secondary characters in The Duke’s Guide, and then the next full book–out sometime next summer–will feature another unexpected duke. Funny how those dukes just pop up all over the darn place.

I am writing a lot, and working full-time still, and doing all those things in-between that, perhaps, keep me sane–watching Game of Thrones, drinking good beer, dancing, etc.
