The publisher of my debut Regency romance, Deflowering Daisy, is going out of business and will soon be shutting down all operations. They have begun withdrawing all of their books for sale, in both print and eBook formats, from all web sites.
I have not yet decided whether or not I will seek other publishing options once the rights to my book are returned to me. Therefore, if you were considering buying the book and have not yet done so, I suggest that you do not procrastinate any longer. I understand both formats of Deflowering Daisy will become unavailable within the next few weeks.
My deepest gratitude to all of you who did buy a copy of my book!
Yesterday, I was honored to be the guest of romance author, Dena Garson, at her blog. Dena is an author after my own heart who enjoys very naughty romance novels. Since my debut novel, Deflowering Daisy, falls into that category, I felt most welcome. Dena posed some questions in her interview which I had not encountered before, which made the interview fun for me.
Please feel free to pop over to Dena’s blog if you would like to read my interview with her. Perhaps you will learn something new about me and Daisy, too.
Yesterday, I was the guest of romance author, Caroline Warfield, at her blog. The topic of my post at Caroline’s blog is one that is near and dear to my heart, roses. In particular, I wrote about how Empress Joséphine put literally hundreds of species of roses under cultivation in her gardens at Malmaison during the Napoleonic Wars, with the able assistance of her head gardener, who was an Englishman. In addition, she was a regular customer of the pre-eminent English nursery, Lee and Kennedy. And both the Prince Regent and the Royal Navy also provided assistance from time to time.

I was very pleased to be invited to be a guest at the new Romance Debuts blog yesterday. This is the new blog about which I posted a notice here last month.
I answered a set of interview questions provided by Cate, the blog’s proprietor. Cate asked some thought-provoking questions, several which were new to me, so I enjoyed my interview. I hope you will enjoy reading it and might be amused a time or two. You can find my guest post here.
Last week, I was privileged to be a guest at the Regency Ramble, award-winning romance author Ann Lethbridge’s wonderful Regency blog. Because Ann always has such informative posts, and because I was one of her first invited guests, I wanted to do something very special. Therefore, I wrote an article about the French technique of preparing fruit and later, flowers, en chemise, which featured prominently in my debut novel, Deflowering Daisy.
For those of you who have not yet read the book, there are no spoilers. Whether or not you have already read Daisy’s story, if you would like to have a more complete understanding of this French culinary technique, which the English extended to use on flowers than that which I provided in the Author’s Notes for Deflowering Daisy, you can find my article here: http://regencyramble.blogspot.com/2015/05/guest-author-kathryn-kane-when-flowers.html
I hope you enjoy it!
Late last month, romance author A. C. Rose was my guest here, sharing her views on reading and writing hot romance. She has most kindly reciprocated and invited me to guest at her blog, The Romance Beat with A. C. Rose. I enjoyed answering her interview questions and I hope you will enjoy reading my answers to them.
