Some of you have been wondering what happened to my “FanFic” post, and I’ve decided to… put it on hold. When I first posted it, I was barely even a quarter in (yup, it *gets to you* that fast). I was thinking, “Wow!! I gotta tell everyone!” I was a reading machine for a couple of evenings late into the night (it’s super long), and happily turning into a reading zombie, and then, I hit a few chapters that… left me uncomfortable. So I’m taking a break.
But in the meantime, I’ve found something else that is very cute so far, (thanks to a few recommendations), and I figured I needed another “light and airy rock star read”. It hasn’t completely consumed me yet, but I’m only a quarter into it, and I’m already delightfully irritated with Will and Lizzy’s relationship, (even though I’m in full eyerolling mode with Charles and Jane). It’s called Fitzwilliam Darcy, Rock Star - Yay ROCK stars! Cause it totally is!!
So while I get back to reading and reviews, here are some author tidbits to get us in the mood
- Tina Folsom has finished Zane’s book! She says: “Done! #Zane has his happy end. Of course, there will be some revisions.”
- Karen Marie Moning is hosting a Barrons Birthday Bash Contest on Facebook – Ya gotta “turn yourself into “Mac” and upload your pic to her Facebook!! Who’s entering?? I’m certainly going to be checking out this contest (sounds like fun!!):

- Michelle Rowen has just signed onto a new YA book deal! She says:
“I’ll definitely talk more about REBEL SPRING when I get the book written and I receive the cover art. But in the meantime — Hooray! I’m a happy girl.”
- In honor of Pamela Palmer’s latest release, she has posted book refreshers for the others in the series:
“Need a quick refresher on Feral Warrior books 1-5 before Ecstasy Untamed comes out next week? I’ve loaded complete synopses of each of the books on my website with spoilers. (These are not for those of you who haven’t read them, yet!).”
- Another gorgeous cover alert!! Alexandra Ivy’s upcoming release My Lord Vampire (Immortal Rogues) – expected release February 28 2012. I think I’m making that today’s cover of the day!! Hey! Is that Paul Marron again? Today’s he’s both a shifter and a vampire. Nice!!
- Richelle Mead’s got some good Eugenie news!!
“More good news for Eugenie fans. Shadow Heir’s release got bumped up a week to December 27. Save your holiday gift cards! ”
- Jeaniene Frost posted her recent Romantic Times Magazine online interview!! Ohhh a couple of highlights!!
About the length of her Night Huntress (Cat and Bones) series: “But, there is a firm finish at nine.”
Ruh Roh!!! Look!! We’ve been (okay… I’ve been moping a bit about the loss of excitement between Cat and Bones. Look what she said about that —> “Their external circumstances leads to internal pressure. Their relationship is definitely going to be tested in the next few books.”
Wooo hooo!!! The last time she said that, I was at the Romantic Times Convention at her author’s panel discussing the upcoming Cat and Bones (a couple of years ago). And guess what happened? That other vampire husband showed up in that book!! And you remember how awesome (and how utterly livid) Bones was, right?
Ohhh she said Home for the Holidays is a long short story – half the book (as found in The Bite Before Christmas) and there is a HUGE reveal in it about Bones!!
