I feel like a lot of my posts are titled “So Much….” Contrary to exaggerated predictions in 2011 about the death of publishing, 2012 has been probably the busiest year ever, so far! So, when I find a spare second to update my blog, I feel like I’ve got a ton all stored up.
To start with, I want to give a shout out and congratulation J. Kathleen Cheney on the sale of her wonderful historical fantasy series to Ace. Based on our announcement: J. Kathleen Cheney‘s OF AMBERGRIS, BLOOD, AND BRANDY, a novel of fantasy, suspense, and romance set in an alternate turn-of-the-century Portugal in which races of shape-shifters live in secret, and a fantastical underwater work of art and a psychopathic killer become tangled in a string of murders that threaten the stability of the entire nation, sold to Kat Sherbo at Ace Books.
And I’ve been remiss offering congratulations on a batch of other great new sales over the past month:
Beth Cornelison‘s final installment of the Black Ops Rescues series and a new trilogy featuring three Louisiana brothers who take on danger and natural disaster to defend the women they love, to Keyren Gerlach of Silhouette Romantic Suspense.
Congratulations to you all! I’m really looking forward to all of these forthcoming releases!
Also, you know that saying about how you can’t please all of the people all of the time? Well, on Magical Words, which I guest blog for regularly, AJ Hartley did a wonderful post a few days ago on Dealing with Negativity. It’s something we all encounter, and it can be so damaging to your psyche and reputation, but I think his post helps put it into perspective.
In other news, Chloe Neill is giving away two ARCs of BITING COLD, the latest novel in her New York Times bestselling Chicagoland Vampires series here on her blog. Contest ends at midnight on May 21st, so enter soon for a chance to win!
