Weekly Announcements - 13 Sept 2010

Veteran's Day was this past Thursday in the United States, and it was Remembrance Day and Armistice Day in other nations. My own parents both served in the US Marine Corps during Vietnam, which has always provided a reminder of the risks involved in becoming a service man or woman. Our heartfelt thanks to all of those who have risked their lives.

In keeping with that theme, reader Kim Adams reflected on Veteran's Day in a post that mentioned author Margaret Mallory's father, Norman Brown, among others. Check it out!


Lorelie Brown has sold her latest historical romance--a western set in the Arizona Territories in 1882 titled CATCH ME--to Carina Press for a July release. Congratulations! Here's the blurb:
Desperation has driven Maggie Bullock to rob a bank. Her father's stomach ailment treatments at the expensive sanatorium must be paid for somehow, and Maggie absolutely refuses to watch the last member of her family die. But the daughter of a sheriff should have known that there are consequences to lawbreaking.
Dean Collier is the gun-toting embodiment of consequences. A bounty hunter, he's shed enough blood to know every kill takes a little shard of his soul with it. So when he's offered a sheriff's post, just for bringing a slip of a woman like Maggie to justice, he's on her trail in no time.
But catching Maggie is the easy part. It turns out to be much harder to get back to Fresh Springs without falling in love with the little hellcat who rides, shoots and shows a determined spirit that disproves everything Dean knew about women. Meanwhile, Maggie does her best to escape from the dangerously broken bounty hunter...
