[quote=""Michy""]Same here -- I printed it out.[/quote]

Glad I'm not the only one. It's a long story but one time I ended up reading a book at the computer. Painful, just painful (reading a whole book on the PC, not reading Elizabeth's first chapter ;) )
At home with a good book and the cat...

For some reason I just can't focus well on an extended passage of text if it's on a screen (mentally, that is, I don't mean my eyes). Guess I'm just old-fashioned. :)

[quote=""Michy""]Yes, I will admit I am a very picky and critical reader. Not quite Mikey from the old Life cereal commercials -- "he hates everything!" -- but almost. ha ha ha ;) So when I say something is good, I don't say it lightly.

Best, best wishes for great success with your book. Is it going to be available on -- dare I ask -- Amazon? :o [/quote]

LOL. Yes, it's up on Amazon, B&N, Borders, Powell's, IndieBound, all the usual suspects. There's going to be a Kindle edition as well. It should also be out on the shelves in the US--B@rnes & Noble and Sh0wtime Cable are doing a joint promotion for Showtime's new series "The B0rgias" and DUCHESS is supposed to be part of the promotional displays. The duke in the story, Alfonso II d'Este, was Lucrezia Borgia's grandson.

Good luck with the launch! REBECCA and TOBG are two of my favorite books so I'm looking forward to reading this.
