New book vs. re-issues

Hmmm, have you read this book before?

Hey, all —

I just got an e-mail from a reader who was less than happy after having picked up Surrender, thinking it was a new book, only to realize that she'd read it before. D'oh!


Those of you who are new to this blog, please take note that Sweet Release (2003), Carnal Gift (2004), Ride the Fire (2005) and Surrender (2006) are reprints — re-issues of my backlist. If you need to read about them to see whether you've read them (or even care to), please go to my Web site and check out excerpts.

The new books for 2008 are Unlawful Contact (April) and Untamed (Nov. 25).

I've been very clear about this here, on my blog, as well as on my Web site and in my communication on the fan loop and in my newsletter. These are re-releases! But if someone isn't tapped into to that information, they might walk into a bookstore, see the book and mistake it for a new title. I feel very bad when that happens, but I'm not sure what to do about it, other than
post this information.

So there you go.

Only 16 days till Untamed comes out!

Here's a quick overview of the immediate future:

* There are a number of contests coming up. Prizes include:
* Signed copies of Surrender and Untamed
* A stoneware candlestick holder from ROGERS ISLAND (Ranger Island)
* A chance to get it on with the Rangers as a real, bona fide CAMP FOLLOWER
* Interviews with Alec, Jamie, Nicholas, Iain and finally Morgan MacKinnon

And some excerpt from Naked Edge...

Also, my website has been updated with downloadable wallpaper from UNTAMED,
as well as some reviews, including the starred review it received from
Publishers Weekly. (I'll post that in a minute...)

We'll have a "special edition Untamed wallpaper" for the book's release day.
It's secret and special. ;-)

Have a great rest of your weekend, everyone!

Sounds like the person wasn't paying attention or reads so much they can't remember what they have or have not read. Personally, I get too emotionally involved in your books to ever forget I read them. LOL

I can't wait for the contests to begin!! A signed UNTAMED? I want it, please? With sugar on top?

Camp Followers sounds interesting. *BEG* I can't wait to hear about that and become one.

I started a list of all the books I read this year because I tend to forget if I have read a book or not. But I do try and keep up with my favorite authors at their websites or on fantastic to see if any books are being reissued.
I received my copy of Surrender yesterday and wanted to thank you again. I am looking forward to reading all the books in the series as they become available.

Hey who cares if it is a re-release the cover is HOT! I saw it in the store the other day and was drooling and then I made sure that my bookstore was going to order Untamed and was assured that it would and I would be the first to know when it came in.

Amanda said...

Omg the release is sooo close!! I can't wait to read the next installment!!

I loved Surrender! Thank you. When I get my hot little hands on it i'll lock myself in a room and won't come out until I'm done!!

Amanda said...

The guys I work with are teasing me about the wallpaper and I just don't care he is so good to look at!

JennJ said...

Big Congrats on the rereleases hon! Hey I like to get my favorite books in the new release versions as well as keeping my old ones I'm a collector nerd LOL.

And you can't go wrong with your books anyway! :)
