I haven't written a newsletter in what seems like forever, so I figured it was about time to say hi.
I finally got a chance to redo my website and have posted all the info on my upcoming books this year. The reason it stayed outdated so long was because (as some of you know) this past summer I went through a devastating fire that destroyed my home and everything I owned, including my computer. The computer had all my web files on it and so I could no longer update, I'd have to start from scratch.
Anyway, I'm happy to say I finally got around to the redesign and I hope you get a chance to check it out and let me know what you think.
Right now I'm counting down to the release of my next teen novel, "Boys that Bite", which is coming out from Berkley JAM in April. Find out what happens when, through a bloody bad case of mistaken identity, my heroine, Sunny, gets bitten by a vampire one week before prom. You can read an excerpt of the book here and if you like how it sounds,pre-order it here .
Also, I am doing a really fun promotion for this book with my friend and fellow Berkley vamp author Serena Robar (who wrote the upcoming "Braced2Bite"). So if you have teen girls who like to read, watch this spot. We'll be launching in March and I'll be able to tell you more then.
For those of you here for the adult stuff, my next Dorchester comedic time travel romance is out in July. It's called "What, No Roses?" and is set in 1929 Chicago, site of the St. Valentine's Day Massacre. Something a little different than your standard medieval or Scottish time travel. :) You can read the blurb here and pre-order here .
As for appearances, for those of you in Massachusetts I'll be doing a "Teen Night" at the Bellingham Barnes and Noble on March 14th at 7pm. On Saturday, April 8th I'll be at the New England RWA conference, signing books at the Crowne Plaza, Route 9 in Natick, Mass.
I'll also be part of a Chick Lit panel at the Romantic Times convention in Daytona in May. And I'll be signing books there as well. I can't wait for that! I went to RT last year and it was a blast. :)
And for those of you who have been asking how I'm doing post-fire, I'm happy to say that everything is great. My dog Molly and I are all settled into our cute North End apartment in Boston and from the look of the place you'd never know just months earlier we didn't have anything but a suitcase full of clothes. I'm eternally grateful for all who helped me out in such a tough time.
That's about it! Til next time. And remember, for more frequent updates, you can always check out my blog .
