2011--What a year!

by Carola Dunn

So much has happened in my life in the past year, not just in the world of books, but I'll stick to that world here.

My 20th Daisy Dalrymple Mystery, Anthem for Doomed Youth, came out in the spring, in both the US and the UK, and later in large print.

My UK publisher set up signings for me at Heffers, the Cambridge University bookstore, and Hatchard's, the 200+ year-old book shop in London. That shop had been there for nearly 20 years already at the beginning of the Regency, the period I used to write about. It makes an appearance in at least one of my books. Believe me that was a thrill, especially when my UK editor sent me a photo of my books featured in their window.

The 19th Daisy mystery, Sheer Folly, came out in paperback.


Two of my Regencies came out in large print.

And all my Regencies, which have been available as e-books for years, at last made their appearance on Amazon, for Kindle. Considering how long ago I wrote them, sales have been amazing.

What a year!

How cool is that? Congratulations, Carola! It must be quite a thrill to see all your books in the window.
