New look and giveaway!

Thanks to everyone who helped me think through the branding issue for my novella, Lady Em’s Indiscretion.

And here on the left is the new cover!  Much as I still love the old cover (right), I hope this will help readers see that this is different from my full-length titles. I hope this story will start reaching readers who appreciate it for what I intended it to be: a quick, sexy read. It’s more like a piece of chocolate rather than a full meal and not for readers who skip the sex scenes.

This week I also updated my author portrait.  Just for giggles, here are my author portraits, in order by age.

As you can see, blue has always been my favorite color. At least I have updated my hair from time to time. 🙂

Let me know what you think of my covers and/or my author headshots.

I will give away 5 copies of Lady Em’s Indiscretion on Kindle or Nook to commenters chosen at random.  Void where prohibited. You must be over 18. No purchase necessary. Post your comments by midnight EST on Thursday, Oct 4th.  Please include your email address and your preference for Nook or Kindle in your comment, or check back for the announcement post on Friday, Oct 5th.


About Elena Greene

Elena Greene grew up reading anything she could lay her hands on, including her mother's Georgette Heyer novels. She also enjoyed writing but decided to pursue a more practical career in software engineering. Fate intervened when she was sent on a three year international assignment to England, where she was inspired to start writing romances set in the Regency. Her books have won the National Readers' Choice Award, the Desert Rose Golden Quill and the Colorado Romance Writers' Award of Excellence. Her Super Regency, LADY DEARING'S MASQUERADE, won RT Book Club's award for Best Regency Romance of 2005 and made the Kindle Top 100 list in 2011. When not writing, Elena enjoys swimming, cooking, meditation, playing the piano, volunteer work and craft projects. She lives in upstate New York with her two daughters and more yarn, wire and beads than she would like to admit.

Well, what do you know? Another author I’ve never read before. I’m always on the lookout for new-to-me authors. I think I would enjoy reading your work. Thanks for the giveaway.

If I win, I’d like the Kindle format.

I like the new cover. I think it gives you an idea what type of story it is. The new author picture is great and I am a fan of blue too.

Karen H, thanks for stopping by. If you read this story, just be aware that in my other books, the characters don’t just talk and have sex–once in a while they do other stuff, too.

Maureen, I’m glad you like the new cover and my portrait. I tend to get nervous having my picture taken, so I’m glad it didn’t show!

I like both covers. I like the author pic with the blue background. I would love to win a Kindle version of “Lady Em’s Indiscretion.”

Hi Elena, I love both the covers!! By the way, your author headshots are wonderful! Isn’t fun seeing how you’ve (I mean we’ve!) changed over time. You look gorgeous. This is such a great blog-I love it. If I win, either format works.

Both covers look nice.

I like it!! I especially love the “piece of chocolate” analogy–I always think about short stories that way…

Glad everyone likes the new cover.

Amanda, I’ve always thought of the novellas as candy, whether they were the old sweet traditional Regencies or the hotter ones, like your and Diane’s HH Undone stories.
