Welcome, Vivienne Marcella! (And Win an ARC of Dark Moon of Avalon!)

I can’t believe our new baby girl is nearly three weeks old already and I haven’t even announced her name here! Today, though, I thought I’d get down to work instead of lounging by the pool sipping lemonade, strolling on the beach–you know, all that copious free time that goes with having a newborn.

Though actually, I have absolutely no right to complain. We decided on Vivienne Marcella for her name, and she’s an angel-girl for sure. Never cries unless she’s hungry and is already sleeping in 5 or 6 hour stretches at night. I know, I know, I don’t know how lucky I am, right? Here’s a picture of her napping with her daddy.

And to celebrate her arrival–and her being kind enough to wait on being born until I’d finished writing Sunrise of Avalon!–I’m giving away two ARC copies of Book 2 of the Trystan and Isolde trilogy, Dark Moon of Avalon.

    What a beautiful name and very unusual. Is there any special significance to the names?

    SO GLAD you picked the frenchified version of her name!!! So eloquent ;)
    I am going to get to Dark Moon this month I promise! I cannot wait! And so happy that you’ve finished Sunrise so you can concentrate on your little girls now. So happy for you, the picture is adorable! Tuckered out and those are the best times for “innocent” looking pics. Best wishes to big family!!

    I really do love that name. It is timeless, beautiful, and different. And it puts me in mind of Miss Leigh.

    I would be honored to win an ARC of Dark Moon, so I signed up for the newsletter. Very glad the timing was perfect. Vivienne knew what was up :)

    Congrats to you all on everything. Enjoy these special days together.

    Congradulations. What a lovely name. It’s one of the names for the Lady of the Lake if I remember correctly.
    I have the first book, but still need to read it. I wish it was available on audio, too. It sucks being visually impaired.

    Thank you for finding the time to do this giveaway. Please count me in.
