I am delighted to announce that my second Newmarket Regency has been sold to Robert Hale Books Ltd! Fortunate Wager - as the title suggests - is set in the heart of the Newmarket racing scene. No publication date yet, but probably November this year.

FANTASTIC news, Jan! So pleased for you.

And I agree with Liz :o)

Yippee! Fantastic news. And it will be featuring the Fortune family from Fair Deception, yes?

Anne McAllister said...

Congratulations, Jan! Great news. Will be looking forward to hearing when the book will be available.

Jan Jones said...

Thanks, Liz! I suspected you might be pleased...

Thank you, Kate!

Yes, K8, this is Caroline's story, also featuring her brother Harry. They, errm, refused to sit on the sidelines any longer. As characters do.

Many thanks, Anne. I'm looking forward to knowing when Fortunate Wager will be out too!

Ooh, many congratulations I'll look forward to reading it! I'll tell my mum too, she loves your novels :o))

Thanks, Elizabeth - and Kate and Michelle.

Thank you, Nicola. And Biddy. And Diane. (Ah! Just realised where the scuttlebutt has rested. Shall pop over to Kate H in a moment.)

And thank you, Karen. Hope you and your mum enjoy it!

Nicola Slade said...

I know I'll enjoy it; I fell for Caroline in FD and have been hoping for a happy ending for her.

Shirley Wells said...

Brilliant news. Well done you! Hope you're celebrating in style.

Jan Jones said...

Nicky - you think I couldn't NOT give Caro her own book? If ever a character was ripe for making a take-over bid it was her!

Shirley - Thank you! I discovered a nice box of chocs in my secret lock-away cupboard with "best by end March '09" on them so I'm - um - doing my best. It's only just not March, isn't it?

Julie Cohen said...

Hooray!!
