About Sue London
(for Frequently Asked Questions about The Haberdashers go here)
Q: Is Sue London your real name? There are other Sue Londons out there.
A: No, Sue London is my pen name but it has been my pen name since 1983. Long before I’d heard of any others.
Q: Why haven’t you published any books before Trials of Artemis?
A: I’ve tried. And have the rejection letters to prove it. (Started querying in 1985.) Decided to do the self-publishing route and started with historical romance because it is fun and popular.
Q: Where can I find out more about you?
A: I do interviews from time to time. You can find them on my writing blog: by Sue London | Interviews
Q: How can I contact you?
A: Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, tweet me @cmdrsue, Facebook me at by Sue London, circle me on G+, connect with me on Goodreads or LinkedIn. Put a comment on one of my blogs (listed at my Sueniverse). There are options.
Q: Do you only write romance?
A: No, I pretty much write anything. Because I love to read everything. I love speculative fiction (science fiction, fantasy, etc.), mystery, romance, the backs of cereal boxes… And let’s not forget non-fiction. I read a ton of that, too, and have some books planned. My favorite thing to write is basically… words. I love words.
Q: Do you plan to write other romance books after The Haberdashers?
A: I do have some other romance books planned, but nothing else in the Regency/Historical genre yet. Although I do have some short stories planned to go along with the Haberdashers series.
About the Haberdashers
Q: When will the next Haberdashers book be out?
A: August 31, 2013
Q: Why is Trials of Artemis only available on Amazon Kindle or via your website?
A: Funny story. See, I had this little romance book that I wanted to put out and the agreement with my husband was to not sink a ton of money into it before we saw whether or not it could sell. Amazon is the easiest platform to publish on before acquiring an ISBN, etc. so we started there. I figured maybe I could sell a couple hundred copies to cover the original investment and take it to other formats in a few months. Oops. We underestimated the popularity a little bit. So other vendors, and print, will be available by October 2013.
Q: How many Haberdashers books will there be?
A: Twelve are planned.
Q: When will ALL of the Haberdashers books be out?
A: Expect the books to follow a publishing schedule of approximately every three to six months.
Q: When will the books be available in print?
A: The first two books will be available in print in September 2013. The remainder of the series will be available in print at the same time they become available in e-book.
Q: What are the rest of the books about?
A: Each book will be the love story of a particular couple, but the Haberdashers will always be involved. And… there is an underlying plot for all twelve books.
Q: Are the Haberdashers books 100% historically accurate?
A: Not really, nor are they meant to be. Many books of this genre are really historical fantasy. However, I put an author’s note at the back of my books to disclose what I discovered in my research and what elements I’ve included on purpose or changed on purpose. Other stuff? Assume I made it up. (Also, if you’ve read more than three books on a particular historical event you know that NOTHING can be 100% historically accurate unless there is verified documentation. Even experts often disagree on what really happened!)

Thanks Sue, I dove in right away and you’ve got me hooked. Can’t wait for the rest. Paul
On storiesspace.com I found the first chapter of “the case of the curious ghost”. I liked it a lot and it made me want more. Did you ever finish that story and if so, where can I find it? If you did not, is there any chance you will?
Thanks Paul! The story is not quite complete yet but you can read more of it on my “Big Bowl of Morning Serial” blog. I do plan to write a number of “Certified Necromantic Mages” novellas and am glad they already have a fan. I’ve loved those guys for years.
