This is a perfect day for a news roundup! Some awesome cover reveals, exciting announcements, even a movie trailer… (and of course a few new releases that just went live, and an awesome sale too!).

Let me know if you’ve come across some awesome book or author news that I might have missed. :D

Fire HD 6 Tablet, 6″ HD Display, Wi-Fi, 8 GB – Includes Special Offers, Black <— SUPER-SALE PLUS A COUPON CODE!!! This one’s on sale, and this coupon code ➔ FIREHD6 <— ($20 off) makes it even CHEAPER than the current sale price. YES. :D !!!

Renee Carlino was featured in THIS newspaper!! A full-on spread just about her (and a lot of focus on her awesome book, Swear on This Life, and her awesomeness!!! If you have really good eyes, you can actually read it!! :D

Stephenie Meyer AND Rainbow Rowell <— OMG!!!!!!! Both of these authors (that so many of us LOVE!!!!) will be signing together TOMORROW!!!!!!!! In fact, Rainbow will be interviewing Stephenie and the signing will start right after!!! Check out the details here. Rainbow says:

“At this event, I’ll be interviewing Stephenie, then we’ll both be signing.”

Audrey Carlan just revealed TWO covers at the same time! Life (A Trinity Novel Book 4) and Fate (A Trinity Novel Book 5) GOR.GEOUS. The author says:

“The beloved Trinity Trilogy continues in these two soul sister spinoff tales. You wanted to know what happened to Maria and Kathleen and now you’re going to get it!”

Courtney Cole tells us about her “work in progress” and this character is VERY personal to her. Inspired by her own real-life events (as she spoke of, on her own website, here), and If You Stay (The Beautifully Broken Book 1) is MUCH-loved by so many in our reading crew, and will have a sequel. She says:

“I’m working on MY PEACE, the continuation of Pax Tate’s story from If You Stay… and I can’t tell you how amazing it feels to be in his head again.

I’ve missed him. I hope you have too.”

and she also said:

“You guys, I’ve decided that my new Pax Tate book, MY PEACE, can’t be condensed into a hotshot novella. It will be a full-length novel. Therefore, I have to push the release date back until December 30th. His story deserves more time, more attention. Because it’s Pax. And because happy endings sometimes have to be worked for.”

VI Keeland ALSO reveals the cover of her upcoming book Ego Maniac!! *ahem*… eek HOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The intruder she was fending off ended up being the rightful owner of the office she “though” she was leasing… (LOL! I think he’s a divorce attorney and she’s a marriage counsellor). I’m LOVING the sound of this!

“…Drew took pity on me and made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. In exchange for answering his phones while his secretary was out, he’d let me stay until I found a new place. I probably should have acted grateful and kept my mouth shut when I overheard the advice he was spewing to his clients. But I couldn’t help giving him a piece of my mind…

…The two of us were complete opposites. Drew was a bitter, angry, gorgeous-as-all-hell, destroyer of relationships. And my job was to help people save their marriages. The only thing the two of us had in common was the space we were sharing.”

Rachel Blaufeld ALSO reveals the cover of her upcoming novel, “Break Point” (no preorder yet for this one), but the synopsis is on this gorgeous cover.

Kit Rocha‘s latest is UP FOR PREORDER ALERT! Beyond Surrender (Beyond, Book #9) <— The final book in the series!!! Here’s the series reading order And my review of book #1.

Sarah J Maas <— PREORDER ALERT!!! A Court of Wings and Ruin (A Court of Thorns and Roses) is also up for preorder!!!! And here’s the reading order.

Amber Garza has announced that she’s signed with a publisher for her upcoming YA novel!!

#SBRMedia is happy to announce Amber Garza, author has signed with Entangled Publishing, LLC! Her YA Novel – I’m Not in the Band – has an expected publication date of Summer 2017.

Beauty and the Beast <— I remember reading this when I was little and LOVING it. Ahhhh the romance and the need to save that broken hero/anti-hero. Might be the reason for my love of “dark romances” come to think of it. ;)  *snort* BUT!!! Here’s the new MOVIE TRAILER (and here’s a comparison to the original movie). :D

Trudy Stiles revealed her “re-covers” of her popular angsty adoption series (Forever Family) and OMG THESE ARE GORGEOUS!!! Although the originals were beautiful too. The author says:

“…this series has been re-imagined, and it couldn’t be more perfect.

New Look
Same Stories
Always Forever”

K. Webster <— One of our “Queens of Dark Reads” has a new book coming out (Whisper and the Roars), and the blurb gave me goosebumps! YIKES! Here it is, gorgeous creepy cover, blurb AND ALL. ;)

The darkness should frighten me.
I should worry I’ll find more monsters…monsters scarier than him.
But I’m not afraid.

It’s safe here.
When I’m inside of my head…


Resuscitate Me by Leddy Harper <— UNREQUITED LOVE ALERT!!! “…It’s hard to walk away, To leave the one man, Who resuscitates me. But I did. He didn’t reciprocate my feelings. He didn’t love me. Not now. Not ever.” Nancy found us this one saying:

“Resuscitate Me by Leddy Harper is so good. I was lucky enough to read an advance copy. It is released 11/19/16. I have become a big fan of Leddy Harper ever since reading Eminent Love and have since read 5 of her books. Resuscitate Me will be kindleunlimited, too!”

Since I Fell For You (New York Sullivans #2) (The Sullivans Book 16) by Bella Andre <— BELLA ANDRE ALERT and this one is already in the top 100 on all of Amazon Kindle!!!

RISK by Deborah Bladon <— SHE FALLS IN HIS LAP IN VEGAS ALERT!! Full length and a standalone, and #26 in all of Amazon right now! “…When I fall into his lap in Las Vegas, our connection is instant. … The pull is strong enough to erase the doubt and to drown out all the questions. Until the secrets we’ve buried in our pasts collide in a way no one could have predicted.

All I know is that I am keeping an eye out for a MAC and Beauty and the Beast collaboration, especially after how GORGEOUS the Cinderella collab was.

Remember? Remember?? *pfft* What am I asking for…of COURSE you remember! ;)
