WOW! Fourteen books highlighted this month! Thanks for stopping by…
JULIA QUINN released her 21st full-length novel and I, for one, am in heaven over it. (Sorry, couldn’t resist). Just Like Heaven features a (Oh, JQ fans are soooo excited) Smythe-Smith girl as a main character. I was lucky enough to have read this book months ago and adored it. And if ever a cover was perfect for the story… AUTHOR WEBSITE BONUS: JQ is giving away Heavenly magnets that we made for her! Don’t miss this fun freebie for fans. (While supplies last — but there are a lot of them!). Get yours — I am looking at mine as I type this — pretty!
ELIZABETH BOYLE released Lord Langley is Back in Town, the much-anticipated next installment in the Standon Widows series… AUTHOR WEBSITE BONUS: Elizabeth and Wax just overhauled the elizabethboyle.com site. There are lots of new tidbits, including a page devoted to book extras, and down at the bottom of every page, a wonderful randomized factoid about Elizabeth in her new DID YOU KNOW feature. What do you know about Elizabeth?
LORI FOSTER released Trace of Fever, the second in her brand new Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor series. AUTHOR WEBSITE BONUS: Lori has soooo much bonus content on her site, but brand new and cute are photos of her kitty (scroll past that handsome beefcake, ah-hem) who made an appearance in Trace of Fever. Sweet!
KATE NOBLE released Follow My Lead, her first book under her new Waxcreative-built website (Woot!) AUTHOR WEBSITE BONUS: Kate’s whole site is new — we announced it right here on this blog a few weeks ago. It’s beautiful (if we do say so ourselves — I just love her palette), and Kate Comes Clean is a fun interview format and tone. We encourage lots of browsing!
JANE PORTER saw her upcoming book: A Dark Sicilian Secret land in UK bookstores. The north American version will hit in August. AUTHOR WEBSITE BONUS: Jane’s site features fun book extras for every book, and this one is no exception. Check out this list of DID YOU KNOW?s about Sicily. And then if you like heavily trafficked blogs with gazillions of comments, look no further than Jane’s JaneBlog.
