It’s good news all around, friends!! From new releases, USA TODAY and NYT Best Seller’s list, contests, super bargain e-books and free reads too, I’ve got MANY updates for y’all below. Including a few highly anticipated tidbits for a few books we’ve been eagerly waiting for!

Wonder what happened AFTER Lucas leaves Sienna in Atlanta? How Kylie and Wyatt’s story ends? Want more of Lucas’s POV? It’s coming soon in a FREE weekly serial on Emily Snow’s blog!

ABSORBED is a FREE weekly mini-serial written in Lucas’s POV. It takes place between the end of Devoured: Chapter 19 (the Atlanta chapter) and the very start of Consumed, and will be published on Emily Snow’s blog and website from August 16 through September 13. CONSUMED will be released in eBook format from Touchstone Books on September 17 and in paperback in November.

sidenote: part 1, 2 & 3 have already been published!

  • Sherrilyn Kenyon is having a giveaway for her upcoming release “Styxx (Dark-Hunter Novels)“. She says: “Another chance to win an autographed copy of Styxx… Enter your photo for the drawing.”
  • Debra Anastasia is having a cover reveal & and twitter party on Sunday for her upcoming “Return to Poughkeepsie” release (releasing on December 31st 2013)! Check out her blog post here so you can get the links. Also, wanna read the synopsis? She also says:
“And I’ve been working on a groundbreaking Poughkeepise-related project for over a year. It will be like nothing you’ve ever seen before. I’ll be able to give you the details regarding that verrrrrry soon. So I’m so sorry to set you back a few weeks on the sequel. I do adore you all more than chocolate.”
  • Julie Hockley’s Crow’s Row is only $3.03 right now!!! THIS is an awesome deal. I bought it way back when at full price and I LOVED it. Started me on my kidnappy reads, and while not as dark as some of those that freaked us out, it still gave me that exciting forbidden taboo *jolt*. Plus…. that ENDING!!!! WHOA. Wanna read my review? Sooooo…. wondering about the sequel “Scare Crow”? I know, all of us that have read book #1 are highly anticipating the relief. Well, I heard a few things. One (from her twitter account) the author let us know that it IS in editing – she tweeted this on August 23rd: “The formal editing process for#scarecrow has started. Looks like everything should be moving along more quickly now that we are there!!“, and she posted the synopsis on Facebook:
“Okay, so I might as well share this with everyone…this is the blurb I wrote to describe Scare Crow (still no publish date). Obviously the publisher will be totally re-writing it, but just wanted to give you my version of what Scare Crow will be about…”“Mob king, Cameron Hillard has abandoned Emily “Emmy” Sheppard, for her own good, so that she can live a long and peaceful life. Now Emmy is grieving Cameron’s death, or at least his fictional death. She has been beaten up and spit out of his underworld, and is expected to move on with her charmed life as though nothing happened. As though her world hadn’t just been turned on its head and spun into a deep woven mess.While Cameron miserably tries to go back to what is left of his life and unfurl the mess he has made of the underworld, Emmy is holding onto a secret – one that in the wrong hands could get her killed, and take the one and only thing that she loves from her. She needs to kill the mob kingpins responsible for Cameron’s death before they come looking for her.

Cameron has no idea of the danger he has placed Emmy in and that it may already be too late for him to save her.”

“I’m still in shock. Truly. In. Shock. But…today I can say I’M A USA TODAY BEST-SELLING AUTHOR!!! Thank you everyone for your support of me and my books and for your love of Ellie, Camden and Javier. YOU got me there with Shooting Scars. #DreamComeTrue#USATODAYBESTSELLER Maybe NOW the local newspapers will give a damn lol”
  • Pamela Ann updates us regarding her upcoming releases! :)
Undeniably Yours is not coming out on the 31st due to a list of reasons (moving, 3 weeks of being sick and so much more), I didn’t get to finish Undeniably Yours as scheduled. Emma’s novel, Fixated On You is still on for Sept. 28 release. I’m weighing if I should shift Undeniably after Fixated before Unveiled and make it as #5.5.. Or I can hopefully finish Undeniably Yours along with Fixated and release it before Emma’s novel, but I’m not making promises on that yet.Here’s the list of the novels to be expected soon…Fixated On You (Sept 28)
Pieces of You & Me (Coming Soon)
Unveiled (Oct 30)
My Summer in Venice (Coming Soon)

  • Rebecca Donovan, author of the hit series “The Breathing Series” was interviewed on “word of mouth” marketing! Here’s the video.
  • K.A. Linde teases us with a tiny excerpt from her upcoming release “Off The Record” (expected release date February 4th, 2014)
She wanted to tell him, Yes, God, yes a thousand times yes! But what if she got invested? What the hell! She was already invested! It was impulsive and downright insane compared to her normal behavior, but she knew now that if she said no, she would regret it forever. And she never wanted to regret Brady Maxwell.
