We had a very busy month in April here at Waxcreative, so busy we didn’t wrap up April until now, May. Nor did we post much (er, anything) here on our own blog (our cobbler’s kids conundrum continues). But we did help usher in a great big bunch of great new reads, each launching off of author sites containing some cool features, and –as ever– we’d like to share…
ELOISA JAMES released Paris in Love, and it’s not a novel. This is her memoir of her year abroad in Paris. AUTHOR WEBSITE BONUS: This whole site is a bonus — I hardly know where to start you off: book club kit, cast of characters, audio excerpt, video excerpt… Délicieux!
KATE NOBLE released two books this month: If I Fall and a related special e-Novella release The Dress of the Season. AUTHOR WEBSITE BONUS: Kate spent April touring blogs to talk about love, life, writing, and her new releases — so there is currently a lot more Kate to be had, which is a bonus unto itself.
NICOLA CORNICK released Notorious in the UK, Book 4 in the Scandalous Women of the Ton series. AUTHOR WEBSITE BONUS: Nicola’s Behind the Book feature sheds light on how Pride and Prejudice inspired Notorious. Bonus behind the scenes stuff.
PAMELA PALMER released Warrior Rising, Book 4 in her Esri series. (I am one of MANY readers who’ve been waiting a LONG time for this. YAY!) AUTHOR WEBSITE BONUS: Enter the World of the Esri and learn more about the characters in these books and the laws of the Esri universe.
JANE PORTER released His Majesty’s Mistake in the UK, Book 2 in Jane’s Royalty Duo — the pair is set to hit North America very soon! AUTHOR WEBSITE BONUS: Jane’s contests are always always always bonus events. Read an excerpt of this new release to enter.
JENNIE LUCAS released A Night of Living Dangerously. AUTHOR WEBSITE BONUS: In the mood for brownies? (I always am.) Don’t miss a delicious brownie recipe from Jennie, which makes an appearance in last year’s Sensible Housekeeper, Scandalously Pregnant. (Still my favorite all-time title.)
SUSANNA CARR posted an excerpt from Suddenly Sexy, due out on May 22.
PAMELA PALMER posted a special sneak peek from Blood Seduction, Book 1 of her new Vamp City series, due out on May 29.
GERI KROTOW posted an excerpt from Navy Rules, due out on June 5.
AND COMING VERY, VERY SOON: May will bring releases from a bunch of authors, and a couple of new site launches from us!
