Ermagerd I think I have finally lost it… I intended to write last night but after a tough RL work week topped off with Brexit shenanigans, all I was fit for was making this dorky nonsense:

  1. From one dork to another: hi5! Lol

    The funniest: this “modern” depiction of Adam and Lysander is spot on. Thank you for sharing.

    Any attempt to escape the craziness is welcome, especially with original art. 😉 😀 ❤


      1. Glad you liked. Who is the actor you’ve used as Lysander, I sort of recognise, but can’t put a name to the face.


  2. THIs looks like fun! I miss trying to save the all the Christmas stories for December, but my resolve is weakening…🎄


    1. OMG, I know exactly how you feel. I swore I wouldn’t eat ANY mince pies this year till December but my mum brought round some mini ones today and I succumbed… and there are a LOT of goodlooking xmas stories this year…


  3. Will I ever be able to unsee the “dorky nonsense” of Adam saying “woof woof”? …..I’m sure a new story would go a long way to helping with that! 🙂


  4. Anything that makes me smile is a gift I’m treasuring so thank you for the dorky nonsense! And for the generosity! I have MWC preordered, so I’m looking forward to more smiles.


  5. Congratulations, Joanna. I’ve really missed your stories. I’ve read your books so many times I am able to recite whole paragraphs (though not as well as Hamish Mckinlay… I love his performaces…


  6. Congratulations on your new release! I have yet to meet Mr. Winterbourne but I have his story on my Kindle already and I’m looking forward to reading it.


  7. I am dizzy with excitement! I just bought MWC and cannot wait for work to end so I can run home, put my jammies on, and read & sigh to my heart’s delight!


  8. I’ve been saving Winterbourne for my early Christmas, 4 hour train journey ‘oop north’ to visit my little Loves. It’s this week – so much to look forward to, a gorgeous JC AND a hug from my best boys! Oh… and free coffee as I managed to get a first class ticket for peanuts. Happy Christmas, Joanna, and may your inspiration and gorgeous books never dry up x


  9. I just DEVOURED Mr Winterbourne’s Christmas, and it’s utterly marvellous! Thank you for giving us more of Adam and Lysander…will we hear about Jonny and Perry perchance…? Just a tantalising thought! 😉 Your writing is fantastic, and I just want to say you’re incredibly talented, and I’m so pleased to be able to read your work.


  10. Aaaa, exciting news! I can’t wait to read this and I’m also eager for that historical werewolf story because please, yes, more supernatural historical romances are welcome. I hope the year ends well and that politics get less terrible by then, maybe. Hopefully. Somehow.


  11. Dorks and nerds are IN. How else could The Big Bang Theory be the number one TV comedy since it’s 3rd season (I believe) thru it’s 12th (this year)? (That is to say, other than the brilliant acting by Jim Parsons, who I think is a God…)

    In any case, I prefer your style as an artist than that found in Shakespeare’s Hamlet: O the world is but a word; were it all yours to give in a breath, how quickly were it gone!

    I so enjoyed the Enlightenment series, and would love to add Mr. Winterbourne’s Christmas to my reading list!!

    Thanks for the op!

    (I always, but always enjoy reading about MM sexytimes!!) 😉😘


  12. I’ve just finished both the Winterbourne stories, and while I found them very delightful, when it came to the ending of the second one, I have to say, I felt you dropped the ball. A double lavender wedding would have solved several problems — unless, of course, you plan a sequel. . .? Please may we have some more?


    1. (I apologize for keeping this on your website, Joanna. I won’t keep this going after this response.) WOL, If you don’t enjoy something about a story, save it for a review. It’s completely rude to come here and give a criticism directly to the author, especially on a post where she’s being celebratory and generous. Authors write the books they want to and can’t change what they did just because readers want something different. You could’ve asked for a sequel in a much nicer way.
