Weekly Announcements - 30 May 2008

Jennifer Mueller just signed a contract with Robert Hale Ltd. for her first print novel. More details to come. Congratulations!


Bonnie Vanak's latest Nocturne, ENEMY LOVER, is now available for pre-order. Go reserve your copy!


Anne Whitfield's latest novel HER SHADOWED HEART, set in 1864 Yorkshire, was just released. You can purchase it at Amazon.
Anna Thornton leads a privileged life, but she's not content. When the dashing Matt Cowan sweeps her off her feet, she thinks her boring existence has changed for the better--only all is not as it seems. Although Matt loves her, he lies and leaves her. Once he has gone she finds she is pregnant. Heartbroken Anna flees her home with her trusted maid.

She buys a run-down farm in Yorkshire and is determined to make a new life and be independent. She begins again, but events occur that will test her strength and self belief. An Irishman comes along looking for work. Anna reluctantly hires him, but she's wary of men, of love, and hates to find herself attracted to him, a penniless labourer, so she fights her feelings. Then, just when Anna believes she is getting on with her new life, the past returns to confront her.

Carrie Lofty feels like a proper author this week, after having received her cover flats for her December release WHAT A SCOUNDREL WANTS, available for pre-order. Come, fall in love with the unusual green and purple!***

Michelle Styles' blog and website are now being archived by the British Library as part of their web preservation programme. She also received a really good review for VIKING WARRIOR, UNWILLING WIFE from Realms on Our Bookshelves:
The part I like best is Michelle Styles wields her talent once more to spin a Viking tale of long ago, filled with strong willed personalities, compelling love and secrets to uncover. VIKING WARRIOR, UNWILLING WIFE will give the reader a few enjoyable reading hours in the time of the VIken!
Michelle also received the cover of her upcoming release, AN IMPULSIVE DEBUTANTE. It's also available for pre-order ahead of its September UK release.


Join us Sunday when Blythe Gifford will be discussing her latest release INNOCENCE UNVEILED, set in 14th century Flanders, and giving away a free copy!


We'll also draw the winner of a copy of Victoria Trout and Penelope West's ETHAN'S FLIGHT. Leave a comment for your shot at winning.


Have a good weekend. If you have an announcement to make for next week, email Carrie. See you next week...
