BIG NEWS!!! TONS OF NEWS!!! And not just news, but I found a plethora of extremely highly anticipated books now up for pre-order by our absolute FAVORITE authors. *thud* I swear I squeed and started bouncing in my chair ’cause OMG. No. The news today. SO SO SOOOOOOOO GOOD!! And I’m not done posting it (there’s TONS) so stick with me as I add more on today’s “news” list for the next hour or so. Click around and check out the goodies. :D

Fisher Amelie just posted a Spotify “mixed tape” for her latest book, The True Story of Atticus and Hazel. ;) SO FUN!!! I love when authors let us into their book “soundtracks”.

Madeline Sheehan updates us on her highly anticipated upcoming novel Undeserving (from her raw and gritty biker series, “Undeniable“). Here’s a snippet of what she says:

“YES. UnDeserving is still coming. Of course it’s coming! And yes, I’m still hoping to have it out by the end of this year. And yes, I’m still planning on having UnDying out at some point in 2017.”

The Goodreads Choice Awards 2016 are up and ready for voting!!! I can’t wait to play in the categories and choose my favorites!!! Quite a few that I’ve read and LOVED! YAY MY FAVORITES!!!

Judith McNaught‘s entire backlist is now finally available in ebook format!!! I created a post featuring some of the MOST READER RECOMMENDED books to start you off. I hear she is AWE-SOME!!!!!!

Alessandra Torre updates us with the latest “Hollywood Dirt” movie news!! Here’s a snippet of what she says:

“PassionFlix is a studio dedicated to the romance market, and bringing your favorite romance novels to life. They have already optioned a ton of great novels, and Hollywood Dirt is the first adaptation they are filming. What’s great about PassionFlix is that they are 100% committed to staying true to the novels…”

C.D. Reiss also has an announcement to make, ’cause of Alessandra’s announcement up there. Tee hee! *whoops* I’m not sure if she was ready to let this fun secret out, but it’s out now, and she deserves a celebration, too! ‘Cause one of HER books has ALSO been optioned by that movie production company.  She says:

“…if you follow her links, you’re going to happen to see Hardball on the list of movies being made by Passionflix studios.

This is amazing and I’m as proud as you could imagine to have Dash come to life with this fantastic team. Our hope is for a Spring 2018 release for Hardball….”

J.D. Robb announced her pre-order AND cover reveal of her upcoming “In Death” book ➔ Secrets in Death: An Eve Dallas Novel (In Death, Book 45)

Jamie McGuire has some Christmas “Maddox” hoodies for sale on her website!! I must agree with it (although I have a specific one in mind. ;) TRAVIS!!!!)

“All I want for Christmas is my very own Maddox.” <— :D !!!!! YES PLEASE!

Harper Sloan just announced that she did a “thing”. *snort* Her blog post title made me giggle. Here’s a snippet of what she says:

“…while I promise that Jaded Hearts is coming VERY SOON, I wanted to do something special to say thank you for all that patience. Thank you to you all and thank you to the characters that I love immensely.

The best way that I know how to do that is to give in to their demanding voices and give them – and you – a little taste of … more.

So, in that mindset came this little surprise. The first three Hope Town Books are bundled with almost 10K words of bonus material between the three. Also, the family tree to keep the group clear on which siblings and parents belong to each other has FINALLY be added. See, I listen!

Let me stress that this series is far from over. Every three books I will bundle them…”

Lisa Renee Jones is having an EPIC GIVEAWAY on her website!!! Signed paperbacks by various authors, and a Kindle Fire!!!

Cherise Sinclair has revealed the cover (and blurb!!) for the latest book on her “Masters of the Shadowlands” series, entitled “Mischief and the Masters”!

Now for some news that will make us just LOSE IT… with excitement. ;)

Looking for a romantic suspense author

Maryse November 3, 2016 at 7:01 PM

Hi Jill!

One of the most highly recommended is J.D. Robb’s “In Death” series. READERS ARE CRAZY for this one!


Amy November 3, 2016 at 11:48 PM

NO! No no no no NOOOOOO!!!! I don’t WANT Undeserving…I want the third Holy Trinity book!!!!!

And yes, I am TOTALLY throwing a tantrum on the ground right now, complete with fist pounding and leg kicking.

Because I can.

Maryse, you sooooooo have to buy one of those Maddox bro’s sweatshirts and post a pic of you!! Nothing reminds me more of you than Travis. You have been gushing about him for years. Personally, I think JM should gift one to you for all the promoting you have done for her books. (hint, hint Ms. McGuire if you are listening)

Maryse November 4, 2016 at 10:50 AM

I want one SO bad Leslie!!!! Actually, she gave me a Property Of Travis t-shirt back in 2013 when they were just released!!! So I DO have my Travis to wear. ;)

That said… I’d love this hoodie!

Maryse November 4, 2016 at 10:52 AM

LOL Amy!!!!! *snuggles the tantrumming book-twin*

Amy November 4, 2016 at 7:42 PM

Um, I’m gonna hang out on this post and take advantage of the book-twin snuggles ’cause bev is NOT pleased with us on the other ones. *giggle*
