It was wonderful to spend last weekend at the DFW Writers Conference, communing with my fellow agents, meeting and renewing friendships with the wonderful DFW membership and seeing some of my local authors! Here’s a wonderful pic of us at dinner at Italianni’s.
(From L to R: J. Kathleen Cheney, P.N. Elrod, Karen Whiddon, me, and Rosemary Clement-Moore)
Rosemary’s novel TEXAS GOTHIC, a fabulous story that appeals to adults as well as the young adult audience for which it’s intended, was just featured on Good Morning, Texas as a great book to take to the pool or beach, especially for the upcoming Memorial Day Weekend! Oh, and that first series that’s mentioned (“like Veronica Mars meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer”), Delacorte is bringing out the first two, PROM DATES FROM HELL and HELL WEEK, and publishing them together in September in an omnibus edition called BRIMSTONE. I highly recommend checking it out!
If you’re looking for romantic reading for the holiday weekend, RT Book Reviews has a “Which Self-Published Story is Right for You?” quiz up on their website featuring works by Sharon Sala, Diana Layne, Crista McHugh and our own Beth Cornelison (TRUST IN ME, currently just 99 cents!).
Here are some other great 99 cent reads!
THE MALORIE PHOENIX by Janet Mullany: a stolen family jewel, an abandoned child, mystery, intrigue and, best of all, romance!
Z by Lauren Baratz-Logsted: a contemporary re-envisioning of The Great Gatsby
Our you can “Take Five” with Lynn Flewelling, whose latest Nightrunner novel featuring my very favorite spies Seregil and Alec, will be out next week (CASKET OF SOULS).
They’re a bit more than 99 cents currently, but, of course, if you feel a sudden urge to run out for any of my books, there’s the Vamped series (Clueless meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer…nearly as cool as Veronica Mars meets…) or BAD BLOOD (mythology, murder and mayhem, first in the Latter-Day Olympians urban fantasy series).
