So, tomorrow is normally the day my monthly newsletter goes out. It’s due by the 10th of the month in order to deploy on time and yet…we won’t have one this month. My computer ate it. I wrote it. I edited it. I went to lunch. I came back and it was gone. I’m blaming Bill Gates since it was a Microsoft Word doc. So if you haven’t subscribed, you can do so above and, in the meantime, here’s your January reconstructed newsletter…
- BELLE CHASSE is being worked on by my editor and I should be back in edits by the first of March. And….I got to see the roughs of the cover and it’s going to be fab. There might be a dragon. I will say no more. And…get ready…..there is a RELEASE DATE: November 8. And it’s up for preorder already. Sorry about the price, guys; I have no control over that whatsoever, but it WILL drop before it’s released, probably to about $20, so any preorders now will automatically have their prices adjusted.
- PENTON 5, tentatively titled ILLUMINATION, is absolutely positively going to be out this year, or that’s the plan. I’m shooting for late July so it’ll be ready before Authors After Dark in Savannah in early August. The Penton boys really want to go to Savannah, although Aidan has to drive. He’s the only one I trust–it sure won’t be Cage. (Inside joke if you’ve read ALLEGIANCE.)
- The next thing coming from me, in Susannah Sandlin guise, is WILD MAN’S CURSE, which will be released on April 5. I know a lot of you folks are my paranormal readers but I hope you’ll give this suspense series a try. I love this book, and besides, it has swamps and voodoo and mysticism, so it’s almost paranormal, right? It’s the first in the WILDS OF THE BAYOU series, and I’m currently hard at work on book two in the series, which currently has the excitingly sexy title of BAYOU 2. Stay tuned any day now for a cover reveal; I’m just waiting on the final.
Each newsletter has a unique giveaway, so I’ll offer it to everyone this time, although with a TBR book. Since the February 15 newsletter falls after Mardi Gras, you have three choices of prizes to enter for:
The Mardi Gras Pet Collar
The Mardi Gras Charm Bracelet
A Pair of Mardi Gras Wine Glasses
All you have to do to enter is leave a comment saying which one you prefer!
And that’s what a newsletter usually looks like :-).
