Books & Blogs
First, check out that photo of my first book HOW TO MARRY A DUKE. Several readers have contacted me on Facebook and Twitter to ask when the book will be available. The publication date is January 3, 2011. If you're interested, you can see the back cover copy and some wonderful quotes on Amazon.
Now off to other good stuff. Once again, I've found some really cool links to share.
If you're a Young Adult fan (Raising my hand!) or have a teen who loves reading, don't miss Sophie Jordan's fantastic YA debut FIRELIGHT available 9/7/10.
Another great Young Adult is ReVAMPED from my agent Lucienne Diver. If you missed the first book VAMPED, you might want to get it at the same time. Gina is such a fun character.
I've waited more than a year for Michele Lang's wonderful LADY LAZARUS, an incredible fantasy set against the backdrop of WWII. Highly recommend!
THE SURRENDER OF A LADY a debut by my Twitter buddy Tiffany Clare. Can't wait to read it on Sept. 28th!
A SEASON OF SEDUCTION by Jennifer Haymore. I'm a huge fan of Jennifer's books, so I'm really looking forward to this one on Sept. 28th.
SINFUL IN SATIN by Madeline Hunter, also available Sept. 28th. I've been a big fan of Madeline's books since reading her first book BY ARRANGEMENT. (To see her backlist, go here: http://www.madelinehunter.com/books.html)
THE DANGEROUS VISCOUNT by Miranda Neville sounds like so much fun. I just love books where all the best laid plans go awry.
THE DEVIL WEARS PLAID by Teresa Medeiros is available 9/8/10 & of course I already ordered it! Teresa is another author I've been reading for years. In fact, I got her first book as a gift along with a promotional I Love Romance nightgown. I think it was A WHISPER OF ROSES. (You can also see all of Teresa's backlist here: http://www.teresamedeiros.com/)
Great Paranormals Available in September:
CHAINS OF FIRE by Christina Dodd is on sale 9/7/10. Check out the yummy guy on the cover!
EAT PREY LOVE by Kerrelyn Sparks will be available on Sept. 28th. The excerpt on Kerrelyn's website is really compelling. Check it out here: http://kerrelynsparks.com/excerpt_september2010.html
Using Facebook to Amplify Your Reach (and Not Annoy People). Great advice from Jane Friedman of Writer's Digest.
What Makes a Great Writer. Another great post from Kristen Lamb. I recommend you bookmark her blog.
Why Bad Girls Get All the Best Lines. Justine Musk's blog is an auto read for me. She's got a unique viewpoint. Bookmark this blog.
Finally, a funny (but a little raunchy) video I first saw on Kristen Nelson's blog Pub Rants. Check out The The Impotence of Proofreading (that's not MY typo LOL).
