It’s a BIG news day. Lots of our favorites are working on highly anticipated releases, and are teasing us!!! But that’s okay, bring on the tease! Better yet, bring on the books! ;)

“This will be a continuation of the story where CRASH left off, highlighting their time in college together….

Well, since Jude and Lucy cause something of a storm and an impact wherever they go, the second book is entitled CLASH. I just handed it over to my lovely editor so we are shooting for the first half of September to release it. That’s less than a month away!!!”

If you are a fan of the rock star bad boys, this is going to be an amazing rock star book release weekend! First:

  • Olivia Cunning is hoping to have the official first book of her “Sole Regret” series released this weekend (Tempt Me)! If you loved Try Me (One Night with Sole Regret) but wished it was longer, here’s hoping this weekend will give us just that! She says:

“*fingers crossed for it being available this weekend* We’ll see how the edits go. Sometimes I can fix everything in a couple of hours. Sometimes I need days just to think. So far I’ve been doing a lot of thinking. Yikes!”

  • But guess what!! We have a rock star book scheduled for release THIS FRIDAY!! Tomorrow!!! “The Mighty Storm” by Samantha Towle. Guess what I will be reading? Yep. That’s my official “currently reading” announcement for this weekend! Here is a little tidbit about it:

“Jake Wethers is the lead singer in one of the biggest rock bands in the world. Trudy Bennett is a music journalist. They grew up next door to one another, were best friends, until they were 14 years old, then Jake’s family moved to America. They lost contact and haven’t seen each other for twelve years…”

  • Caroline Hanson just announced a novella release for August 31st 2012 (part of her Valerie Dearborn) series. She updated her Facebook status saying:

“The Jack Novella is ready- except for formatting. It will defo be out by next friday, August 31, 2012. Which is funny because Love is Darkness came out at the end of August last year. It’s been an amazing year.”

  • Kristen Ashley and “Knight” fans!! She just posted a 4 chapter teaser for the next in her “Unfinished Hero” series (Creed’s book). Check it out here. She says:

“They’re Up! The first four working chapters of Creed can be found on this page, scroll down to the bottom. Remember! These are working chapters so there will be changes and edits before the finished product comes out.”

  • Christine Zolendz (author of Fall From Grace) updates us on the highly anticipated sequel:

“What’s up with book 2? Hopefully I’ll be done and edited within the next two months. I’m thinking about revamping the cover of Fall From Grace when I get a new cover for book 2…”
