Oh this is an AMAZING compilation of the latest author news, and OMG WE ARE IN FOR SOME EXCITEMENT!! Awesome books being released, a few author updates about their progress, some story freebies, a phenomenal BDB spoiler list from J.R. Ward’s latest Q&A chat, and congratulations are in order to a few authors, too!!!

*squee!!* Let me know if I’m missing any cool news releases… I’ll post ‘em here!

Also… check out my latest list: 12 Highly Anticipated Pre-orders coming out today & tomorrow!

  • Jane Harvey-Berrick, author of The Traveling Man (here’s my review) just updated us on her latest upcoming release (that is going live tomorrow) saying:

Yep, Amazon have cancelled PRE-ORDERS for THE TRAVELING WOMAN. But it WILL go live on April 7th. If you’ve pre-ordered, please one-click again on TUESDAY! THANK YOU!

BREAKING NEWS UPDATE!!!! It’s NOW LIVE ON AMAZON!!!! The Traveling Woman (Traveling Series #2) (The Traveling Series)

As promised, we have the transcript from the Q&A. It is full of SPOILERS so if you don’t want to read SPOILERS, don’t read on.

Because there are SPOILERS!!!!!!!! Lots and lots of SPOILERS!!!!

If you are still reading, you must not mind the SPOILERS…

continue here…

  • J.R. Ward also announced her next book title (and who it’s about!!!!!!!): “The spring 2016 BDB hardcover release is… THE BEAST! (Can u guess who it’s about?? RHAGE in the house!)” eekeekeek <—- *thud*
  • J.R. Ward <— ONE MORE!!! For those that need a spoiler forum/support group for her latest book, The Shadows, here is what she just posted:

Happy Release Day! If you want to know why I thought about writing THE SHADOWS, go to:


  • Charlotte Stein has a bunch of awesome sounding books coming out soon, and I just couldn’t help but create a list dedicated to her book repertoire! Looking for super-steamy (and I mean AFFECTING!), or maybe our favorite “unconventional romances” a la “taboo and forbidden”? YES YOU ARE! Take a look. I KNOW you’ll be thrilled!
  • Jasinda Wilder‘s news of a new series by that will be published by Berkley Books (Penguin Random House) has just been posted! Book one in the trilogy entitled Madame X is set to go live on November 3rd 2015. Jasinda on Amazon AND!! Here is a bit from the press release!

“I have been sitting on this MADAME X story for a while now, waiting for the perfect moment. It’s a special story, with drama, intensity and very sexy characters. Fans have asked for years when they’ll be able to buy a book of mine in stores. This trilogy is my response. It was the perfect opportunity to partner with a traditional publisher to reach the broadest audience,” Jasinda Wilder said.

The MADAME X trilogy is a dark, sexy and atmospheric modern-day fairytale about a mysterious woman drawn to two very different men.

The second and third books in Wilder’s trilogy are planned for publication in early 2016.


As some of you caught on, I put a little something extra in the chronicle…

Some clues:

It’s present day so both sets of twins have already been born…

It will be revealed in Double Dare

And yes, I am screwing with your heads….

  • Mia Asher just posted the cover of her upcoming highly anticipated release, “Virtue 2: Sweetest Venom” (check out Easy Virtue). It sounds way too exciting… she’s a TOTAL bad girl…
  • Jay Crownover has a surprise for us tomorrow in regards to her upcoming release Asa: A Marked Men Novel (in just a couple of weeks!!). She says: “…tomorrow on my author page I’m posting and audio snippet of his book for teaser Tuesday…you guys…the voice…the drawl…the words….this boy is going to ruin us all…
  • S. Walden just put up a blog post about her upcoming book release Interim… and we know she can take some serious gasp-worthy risks!!! Here’s a little quote from this bully-themed <— eek!!! book: “I’m taking you away from them for good,” he said softly. “And you’re gonna like it.” YES!!! SAVE ME! Or that’s the impression I’m getting… It is releasing on April 14th 2015 and she says:

“…there will be some sort of romance element in the story since Jeremy’s “madly in love” with Regan. But, readers are also aware that this story will focus primarily on bullying, brokenness, and revenge.”

“Interim may not be the romance book everyone in the indie world thinks they need, but it’s the “romance” book they actually do need. Yes, that’s quite the statement, isn’t it? And I stand behind it because I believe in it.”

Note from Maryse —> I think I DO need it. This sounds right up my alley!

  • Raine Miller lets us in on a BIG sale for one of her BIGGEST hits (Naked: The Blackstone Affair, Book 1), saying: “Rarely on sale but it is right now!!!!!” *blush* redface I just typed in “Raine Miller Naked” in the Amazon search field to find it. lol Tee hee!!! The “search” magicians on Amazon must wonder about me, sometimes… ;)
  • John Green posted a fun Buzzfeed quiz thingie! LOL! —> Which John Green Heroine Are You?

NO SPOILERS – GAH! That is scaring me half to death. I am halfway done with BDB #13 and do not want to know what has everyone crying. Please – please no one spoil it. Fabi agrees – she doesn’t want any hints either!!

Asa – Marked Men series – could be a good one. I adored Rule, the others not so much. So it;s a hot or miss there. Someone else read it first and report back! ;-)

Maryse April 6, 2015 at 6:33 PM

I wanna cry!!!!

MichelleS April 6, 2015 at 6:55 PM

What? Why? Oh no!!! Don’t tell me. You guys are scaring me. If someone dies, I’m going to lose it!!! What are you reading Maryse? Y R u crying??? Oh no…

Amy April 6, 2015 at 7:22 PM

Sweetest Venom!! *happy dance* I want to hate Blaire but I just can’t bring myself to…even though my heart HURTS for Ronan.

And Interim…her book Going Under sucker-punched me – I seriously wanted to puke and run away simultaneously at *that* part – so I am really looking forward to another one from her! :D

Amy April 6, 2015 at 7:24 PM

And y’all are killing me with the BDB stuff…even if I read the remaining books back to back, I’m still like a month away from catching up with you guys. *sigh* Love those guys…

Krystal April 6, 2015 at 8:47 PM

I finished the The Shadows last night and the hangover is serious. I can’t even think what to read next ! Lol Although I will look into some from this list , thanks !

Laura April 7, 2015 at 3:02 AM

Shell April 7, 2015 at 6:20 AM

Jean April 7, 2015 at 11:18 AM

Amy, I loved Ronan! Looking forward to book 2….. that ending in book one…..crazy!

I’m so looking forward to Asa!

Maryse April 7, 2015 at 2:29 PM

Maryse April 7, 2015 at 2:30 PM
