Let’s start off this week’s news round up with a naughty little teaser from Christina Lauren:
Heads up: Dirty Rowdy Thing – Book 2 in the Wild Seasons Series is expected to come out November 4, 2014 and it’s currently available for Pre-Order! Go get it!
We received exciting news from the lovely Katy Regnery this week – apparently her series The English Brothers is getting so much positive feedback, that she’s adding on a new book Kiss Me Kate, a novella featuring the brothers’ cousin, Kate English, whom you will meet in Seduced by Stratton. – The Smutsonian LOVES all the books in this series so far – our reviews will begin rolling out next week starting with Breaking Up With Barrett – Also, it was Katy’s birthday on September 3rd – go wish her a happy birthday!
Shout out to Tara Lynn over at the blog: Two Unruly Girls with a Romance Book Buzz who posted this lovely sentiment on Facebook this past week:
As a reader/blogger we not only fall in love with a book, but the author who gave it to us. Who made it come alive. We love when you interact with us and it’s nice to know that you’re human too and appreciate that we may “fangirl” a bit. When you share a book sale or new release and see the author you love say thank you because even though they have 25 thousand likes and you’re just starting out they fucking appreciate it. This is why I love the book world. This is suppose to be an escape from the real world not a playground in second grade pulling each other’s pigtails..
I couldn’t have said it better myself. There’s an astounding amount of unnecessary bickering on social media lately – mostly between street-teams who post in support of various authors – While it is admirable to support authors in this way, it bothers me that many of these groups are chosing to tear down those they consider to be “rival” authors. Keep it classy, people.
Congratulations are in order: Back in July, I reviewed an anthology Erotic Poetry titled Revenge of The Orgasm. It was written by a gentleman who calls himself The Greatest Poet Alive. In my review I wrote that it takes massive balls to use that as your nom de plume – and it turns out G.P.A. is living up to the name – this past week we learned that Revenge of The Orgasm was a winner in the 2014 International Book Awards. Congratulations on your award, and on your massive balls.
I also want to congratulate Ben Burgess Jr. – His novel Wounded won the Gold Award in Urban Fiction at the 2014 International Book Awards.
Katy Regnery also deserves congratulations – her book See Jane Fall (Heart of Montana: Book 4) is a finalist in the 2014 Kindle Book Awards – Good Luck!
