Odds and Ends

  • Our not-quite-romance book club on George Gissing’s The Odd Women (1893) starts on Monday. Here are the details. I’d love to see you there.
  • We’re less than a month away from the release of Earth Bound. It isn’t going to be available on Netgalley, so if you’re a reviewer and you’d like to take a look at it, please email me at author.emma.barry (at) gmail.
  • Star Dust is in a promo celebrating Sassy, Sexy, Smart historical romances. Seriously, these books are so good. (I’m trying to keep all my squee inside about this and it isn’t working.) You can get all eight for FREE here. This deal is only good through April 25 though, so click fast.


  • ETA: and I forgot one! Carina Press is running a 30% sale on all the books at their site, which includes The Easy Part series (my DC-set political romances). The deal is good through April 30; use the code RT3016 when you check out. These books rarely if ever go on sale.

Happy Things

There is so much in the world at present that makes me sad. That fills me with rage. That reminds me of my smallness. That waves my fragility at me like a flag.

I never know whether I should write about those things here, whether it’s appropriate as a writer, and specifically as a writer of genre fiction. So as I ponder that, let me give you something that makes me happy.

In just over four weeks, Private Politics will be out. And it shows up in my preorders along with Joanna Bourne. Tee-hee.
