Swoon Author Cindy Anstey: The Launch of DUELS & DECEPTION
Hello Swoon Readers,
You are cordially invited to share in the excitement of my launch of Duels & Deception, celebrated as a Tea and Talk at the Scared Heart School.
It began with an introduction, and then, three generous volunteers read excerpts from Duels & Deception. It was amazing to hear my words being spoken aloud and to watch the reaction of the audience. When it was my turn, I talked about Robert and Lydia and the reasons behind the relentless search for a good match by the mamas of Regency upper society. I addressed the complicated process of introductions and answered questions offering advice for aspiring authors and discussing the influence of my travels on my writing.
Fortunately, the bell rang just as my nerves were about to
render me speechless and we adjourned to the library for tea and cake!
As we sipped from our elegant teacups and
scarfed cake (daintily, of course), the conversation continued and I answered
questions about the book, the writing process and living abroad.
It was a wonderful party for the birth of Duels & Deception, now out in the
This is… was the cake!
