New Year - New book

I thought you might like a peek at the rough draft of the cover for my new book, The Belles Dames Club, which comes out in April this year. I have often thought it unfair that during the 18th century there was a proliferation of gentlemen's clubs - Whites, Almacks, Brooks's etc and nothing similar for the ladies, so I thought I would redress the balance. The Belles Dames Club is the brainchild of a lively widow, Lady Wyckenham, and when her step-daughter, Clarissa, comes to stay she is soon embroiled in the outrageous escapades of the club and its members. I loved writing this Georgian romp, which has its fair share of adventure, handsome heroes (of course) and villainous rogues. I am waiting now to see the finished cover, and I wonder how different it will be from this original sketch?

For milder cases of acne there are over the counter treatments and other skin care solutions that contain benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid. There are also a variety of on-line ordered products that are very effective, such as Proactive. Remember, pregnant women should avoid products that contain salicylic acid, as it can possibly lead to complications during pregnancy or even birth defects. These are to be applied normally after washing, just like with facial acne solutions.
