HAPPY ALMOST SUPERBOWL SUNDAY!!! That will be a happy day for many… a “meh” day for many more. 😉 But that’s okay. ‘Cause we have books. LOTS AND LOTS OF BOOKS!
In fact… first and foremost!!! Biggest news of the day is THREE BRAND NEW EARLYBIRD releases from three of our very own favorite authors!!! 😀 They’d normally be listed in tomorrow’s earlybird post, but these are tooooo goooooood-sounding to wait. 😉
- Combust (Everyday Heroes Book 2) by K. Bromberg <— K. BROMBERG’S LATEST IS LIVE!!!!! Starting over, laying low, and HE’S her new roommate!
“…When she finds herself in Sunnyville, she refuses to let her new roommate burn her too.
Still . . . a rebound has never looked so good.
That’s her first thought when she sees firefighter Grady Malone.
Sexy. Charismatic. Unapologetic. He’s a man who carries his own scars—the ones on his back, the survivor’s guilt on his soul, and the fear in his heart…”
- Look the Part by Jewel E. Ann <— JEWEL E. ANN’S LATEST IS LIVE!!!!!!!! The single dad and the therapist…
“…She’s annoyingly happy with a constant need to touch him—adjust his tie, button his shirt, invade his space, and mess with his mind.
Still … She must go…”
- Hostage (Criminals & Captives) by Skye Warren & Annika Martin <— SKYE WARREN & ANNIKA MARTIN’S LATEST DARK READ JUST WENT LIVE!!! OMG THAT COVER IS FANTASTIC!!! It’s set in the same world as Prisoner (but is a standalone and can be read separately). He’s a criminal murderer that spares her life but he gets in her car, and comes back for her again and again…
“…Drive,” he tells me, and I have no choice. He’s a criminal with burning green eyes, invading my life and my dreams.
The police say he’s dangerously obsessed with me, but I’m the one who can’t stop thinking about him. Maybe it’s wrong to let him touch me. Maybe it’s wrong to touch him back. Maybe these twisted dates need to stop. Except he feels like the only real thing in my world of designer labels and mansions.
So I drive us under threat, until it’s hard to remember I don’t want to be there.
Until it’s too late to turn back.”
“I think it just hit me that US WEEKLY did the cover reveal for my upcoming book.
Yeah, Ima try to act all cool over on my author page like that’s normal, but over here on my personal page, let’s just give me a moment to FREAK THE FREAK OUT!”
P.S. Normally I don’t “share” personal page info, but she posted this as public 😉 so it’s free game, right?? LOL!!!
Tarryn Fisher is a HUGE TEASE!!!!!! A. HUGE. TEASE. She just posted this (her upcoming release called “Daddiopath”????) and all I can scream is MINNNNNNNNNEEE!!!!!
“Just a couple of things.
1) I finished From Lukov with Love about a week ago, and it’s going through its final edit right now. It’s 150k words, it’s a story about frenemies, and I love it to pieces. There’s a lot of cursing (don’t act surprised), it’s *almost* a rom-com but still more of a contemporary, and the hero and heroine are two that will stay with me forever. This book won’t be for everyone (then again, I don’t think any of mine are), but it was a joy for me once I figured out what I was doing. 😀 It should be out in a little over week, I hope. I’m still sorting the audio book situation out. I’ll keep y’all posted.
AND BEFORE WE GO ANY FURTHER, HERE’S THE BLURB FOR FROM LUKOV WITH LOVE:
If someone were to ask Jasmine Santos to describe the last few years of her life with a single word, it would definitely be a four-letter one.
After seventeen years—and countless broken bones and broken promises—she knows her window to compete in figure skating is coming to a close.
But when the offer of a lifetime comes in from an arrogant idiot she’s spent the last decade dreaming about pushing in the way of a moving bus, Jasmine might have to reconsider everything.
Including Ivan Lukov.”
HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to these authors that made the NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER LIST!!!! Author Penelope Ward says:
“Huge huge huge congratulations to my BFF Vi Keeland for making the New York Times bestseller list at #8 this week for Sex, Not Love!!! I am so happy and proud of you. If books are like birthing children, this one gave you a long and hard labor! But you did it! Congratulations as well to Heidi McLaughlin who hit at #12 for Forever My Girl!! An amazing week for indies!
Check out this in-depth interview with me and Stuart Reardon !
Some great questions about UNDEFEATED and our writing partnership
“…There’s no need for names or business cards. And that’s why I’m eager to get to know her more, since my mystery woman seems to like me for me, rather than for my huge…bank account.
Everything’s coming up aces. Until the next day when things get a little complicated. (Newsflash — a lot complicated.)”
Nora Roberts has posted a plea to her readers. She asks that readers be patient, and most of all polite in regards to requests for upcoming books, and in regards to their disappointments for books written, or planned, that do not follow their timeline expectations (for her, and all authors). A snippet:
“…I never have, never will, and simply can’t write to any segment of reader demands. I do try to consider reader expectations, but I have to write the story that calls to me. Whatever story that is won’t ring the bell for every reader. I accept that.
I’m sorry that the stories that have pulled me in the last few years have taken me in a direction that disappoints a reader. But if I didn’t follow the pull, whatever I wrote likely wouldn’t satisfy any reader, much less myself…”
“…It’s a book I honestly didn’t think I’d ever finish and there were a few times where I didn’t want to finish it. But it’s also the book I’m most proud of writing and if I never write another one again, I’ll know I wrote this one.
This one is different from all my others (I think I always tell you guys that) but I write every book with the same simple goals, no matter what genre:
1) To entertain you
2) To make you feel.
So, to die-hard romance readers and anti-romance readers, and everyone in between, I feel like all of you will get something from this story, and I hope you’ll give it a chance…”
P.S. DO NOT FORGET!!! Tonight is the LAST NIGHT that you can enter to win a print copy!! ➔ K.A. Tucker’s latest book “Keep Her Safe” is LIVE & we’re having a two book giveaway!
Alessandra Torre just tweeted something VERY interesting, and I feel like I must agree with her…
Alessandra Torre: I’m sick of articles that say #ebook sales are declining and only make up 30% of sales. These numbers typically come from publishers. In THEIR market, where they charge $12.99 for an ebook, that’s true. But nationwide, it’s an unreliable stat.
“Cover reveal and description for Pestilence (The Four Horsemen #1), the first book in my NA post apocalyptic series!”
“…No one can play Hamlet but Isaac, and when the director pairs him with Willow in acting class, they clash again and again—neither willing to open their hearts to anyone.
But clashing leads to breaking, breaking leads to the spilling of terrible secrets, and soon Isaac and Willow find Shakespeare’s words mirroring their lives. When they are cruelly torn apart, neither know how this play will end…”
