The Last Queen will be released in trade paperback on May 5, 2009. I'm very excited about this new edition; as a Random House Readers Circle selection, it has a brand-new cover, Q&A, and reader group discussion questions. And trade paperbacks are more affordable - always a plus in today's economic climate! I'll be reading and signing at various Bay Area locations in May; to find out where I'll be, visit my website and click the News link.
I'll also be on a virtual tour on the web, visiting various blogs. On May 4, I'm at Historical Tapestry with a guest post about why I love writing about the Renaissance. You can follow my tour on the link in the sidebar of this blog; please join me if you can!
UPDATE: I'm really sorry but I have to re-schedule my online chat at Goodreads on May 8 for another day. Unfortunately my dog appears to have sprained her leg and I need to get her to the vet tomorrow. So, I'll try to re-schedule soon.
I'll post periodic updates from my tour here, so please stay in touch.
