September just whooshed by and so much is happening with the authors here in the Underground that we decided to take a moment, take a deep breath, and relive the highlights of the last month or so. (Not only will we relive them, we'll celebrate them by giving away some autographed books, so read on!)
First, September was a big month for new releases -- all new work by Kerrelyn Sparks, Helen Lowe, Janet Mullany, Merrie Destefano and Colleen Gleason:
We got to see some GORGEOUS new covers for upcoming releases from Tracey O'hara, Kimberly Derting, Melissa Marr, Tera Lyn Childs, Pamela Palmer, C.L. Wilson and Juliana Stone:
Hollywood Insider!). She's also recently announced a new deal with HarperCollins for a brand new YA trilogy, coming in 2013.
The 9/16 episode of JEOPARDY! featured a question about Kerrelyn Sparks! The category was Bestsellers for $1200, and the Question: A vampire series by Kerrelyn Sparks is punningly titled "Love at" this. You can see it happen around the 5:42 marker at on this YouTube video!
And speaking of videos, we have three new, and very different ones for you this month! Nicole Murphy's SECRET ONES:
Janet Mullany's JANE AND THE DAMNED:
And Juliana Stone's HIS DARKEST EMBRACE:
(Don't forget, there are lots more book videos on our VIDEOS page!)
Going to be in NYC the first weekend in October? Then you might want to attend New York ComicCon on October 8th, 2010 where you can sit in on a panel discussion with Jeaniene Frost, Juliana Stone, Marjorie Liu, Pamela Palmer, Jocelynn Drake and Margaret Ronald, as they fight like cats and dogs over the appeal of feline vs. canine shapeshifters:
Panel Description: In the furball battle for supremacy, what shapeshifter is going to claw, bite, gnaw and scratch its way to the top of the pack? In recent novels by novelists such as Pamela Palmer and Juliana Stone, paranormal romance fans have gone absolutely feral over the emergence of cat shapeshifters…they purr, what’s sexier than a werepuma or wereleopard? Loping through the howling legions of the other side of the debate comes authors such as Jocelynn Drake, Marjorie M. Liu, and Margaret Ronald – who might argue that woman’s best friend is going to hound all the competition until they emerge triumphant. The argument may get catty; and the arguments over which breed of shapeshifter is sexier are going to be doggone good – so come and join the melee!WHEW! Did I forget anything? Oh, yeah... the book giveaways!! :-)
Panel Room 7 (1A22)
2-3 pm, followed by booksigning 4-6pm
