All sorts of things are going on today, so I’ve got a bunch of little things noted below:
Carina Press is releasing three seasonal anthologies this week, Winter Wishes which is collection of paranormal stories, a contemporary anthology Naughty and Nice and His for the Holidays which is a GLBT anthology.
Naughty and Nice features stories by Lauren Dane (Believe), Jaci Burton (All She Wants for Christmas), Shannon Stacey (Holiday Sparks), and Megan Hart (Unwrapped).
Winter Wishes includes stories by Vivian Arend (Tangled Tinsel), Moira Rogers (Freeze Line), and Vivi Andrews (No Angel). (Inserting a personal note here — I read Tangled Tinsel while Viv was writing it. It’s a winner.)
The great thing about this is if you want to read a story by a particular author you don’t have to buy the entire book. Or you can buy all four together–Carina’s letting you choose.
Texas Tangle’s cover is up on Clash of the Covers for Cover of the Year. But there are a lot of beautiful covers nominated, so head on over and vote for your favorite. (Honest, you don’t have to vote for Texas Tangle’s. Just go over and vote for one of them and make someone’s day.)
Smokin’ Hot Books has a poll up for the “Best Sex Scene“. I am making notes of the books being nominated. (Yes, like my TBB/TBR pile just isn’t big enough *eye roll*)
I HAD to add this after seeing it on the brilliant Jill Shalvis’ blog. I can’t stop laughing at it.
I heard from my Carina Press editor yesterday that my edits for Tangled Past will be arriving next week, so if I’m quiet here on the blog, it’s because I’m deep into edits. Oh, and I have an actual date now for its release — May 30th!
**EDITED** My edits just arrived and are due back next Wednesday (as in the 15th) so I’m definitely going to be quiet for a while, especially over on Twitter. But though I may not be chatty, you’ll know I’m busy making Tangled Past even better for you. If you need to reach me, email me at leah DOT braemel @gmail DOT com (remember that’s a before e) or leave a comment on my blog.
** More news — Mom has just phoned to say she’s being released from hospital this Friday, almost two weeks earlier than the original date they’d given her. She’s doing so well, she’s able to work with just a cane most places, though she’ll still have to rent a walker for those times she’s tired. But she’s doing terrifically. What a great Christmas present.
