Weekly Announcements - 1 Oct 2010

This week's guest author, ZOE ARCHER received a great review for the first of her "Blades of the Rose" romances, WARRIOR. Buried by Books gave it an A and wrote, "I love that this book is hard to pin down to a single subgenre. There's suspense. There's paranormal. There's history. Even some steampunkish elements. But all of it is woven with such subtle skill that no one element dominates any other. It's entirely new, yet borrows from an extensive film and literature lore—which only adds to the richness of the storytelling."

In addition, Zoe's second "Blades of the Rose," SCOUNDREL, is up for best cover over at Bitten By Books. Take a look and cast a vote if it strikes your fancy!

Congratulations to LILA DiPASQUA, whose collection of fairy tale retellings set in 17th century France, THE PRINCESS IN HIS BED, received a great review from Publishers Weekly.
