While Etiquette & Espionage is officially not yet out, I was pleased to debut the cover of Curtsies & Conspiracies in my author blog today! As I have done for Etiquette & Espionage I thought I would do some fashion items that seems to match the book cover. Here we go!

    "Will Sophronia's roommates be the same for the next book, since it is a new school year? P.S. I can believe that I have to wait all the way until November to read C&C; I need a daily dose of Sophronia's adventures!"
