This is a special day for me. Although the British version of The King’s Mistress went on sale in the UK last summer, my work on the book was not over. For the US and foreign language editions I was to cut roughly 100 pages.

This is not something I could do by simply crossing out sections. I revised extensively—there are some new scenes, revised scenes, embellished scenes, intensified scenes, truncated  scenes, and removed scenes. Two names have been changed.

So this feels like the day I truly release The King’s Mistress into the world.

I’m a little breathless….
