Interview: Lauren Willig + Giveaway

Interview: Lauren Willig + Giveaway

Today’s our stop on The Ashford Affair blog tour and I’m honored to welcome Lauren Willig to Literary, etc! I’m a big fan of her Pink Carnation series and when Eloise Kelly talks about her PhD dissertation title in The Secret History of the Pink Carnation and says, “I doubt “Why I Love Men in Black Masks” would have made it past my dissertation committee,” I was sold on the series right then and there! Anyone who knows me, knows I love my masked men! The Asford Affair is her current release and it’s already available. If you’re a fan of historical fiction then you’re in for a real treat since Willig does a great job incorporating aspects of the past with a beautiful narrative. I can’t stress enough how… Read more »
