A few things I’m really excited about today.  One is wishing J. Kathleen Cheney HUGE congratulations for finaling in the Locus Award for Best First novel for her wonderful fantasy THE GOLDEN CITY (to be followed July 1st by the sequel, THE SEAT OF MAGIC).  Such a worthy book in such prestigious company!

More exciting news: those of you already familiar with Molly Cochran‘s wonderful YA novels for Paula Wiseman Books/S&S will be thrilled to know that there’s a new Katy e-novella out called WISHES (and for only $1.99)!  Those of you who aren’t yet familiar, there’s no time like the present to dip into the world, especially with the specially priced novella out and the paperbacks of the first two books soon to be released: LEGACY and POISON.  Her third Katy book, SEDUCTION, is scheduled for December 2014.

Since I’ll be away in L.A. (look, Ma, I’m rhyming!) when Vicky Dreiling’s most excellent Regency historical romance WHAT A RECKLESS ROGUE NEEDS comes out on Tuesday, I wanted to wish Vicky an early Happy Book Birthday!  For those of you who haven’t yet been introduced to Vicky’s work, she’s a multiple-RITA-Award nominee and a wonderful, witty writer.  Her book description is below!

What a Reckless Rogue Needs WHAT A RECKLESS ROGUE NEEDS by Vicky Dreiling

“4 1/2 stars! TOP PICK! In the second of the Sinful Scoundrels series, Dreiling brings the Regency to life in a wonderfully evocative fashion. With believable, intelligent characters–including an honorable rake and a strong-willed lady–this moving tale, fraught with sexual tension, hits just the right notes.” —RT Book Reviews on WHAT A RECKLESS ROGUE NEEDS

WILL THE ROGUE’S PERFECT PLAN . . .

Colin Brockhurst, Earl of Ravenshire, has no desire to wed, this season or any other. So when his father demands he give up his wild ways and take a wife, Colin refuses. But his father raises the stakes and threatens to sell the ancestral home if Colin doesn’t comply. Now Colin has no choice but to find a wife. Unfortunately, the only woman he wants is the one whose heart he broke years ago.

LEAD TO THE PERFECT SEDUCTION?

Regardless of the ton‘s whispers, Lady Angeline Brenham won’t settle for anything less than true love. After rejecting more than her share of suitable suitors, spinsterhood looms before her-until the devilishly handsome Colin reappears in her life with a proposition. Angeline vows to keep her feet on the ground and her heart in check. That is, until one searing kiss melts her resolve and reignites a burning desire for more . . .

… to N.K. Jemisin for her Nebula Award Nomination for Best Novel for THE KINGDOM OF GODS, the third book in her already award-winning Inheritance Trilogy.

…to Ramez Naam for the sale of his debut science fiction novels NEXUS and CRUX to Angry Robot Books.

So excited for you both!
