It’s been a while since I wrote a newsy little post about my exciting life as a soon-to-be-published author. I know a lot of you who read this blog do so because you’re either traveling the same journey or will be soon, and want to know what lies ahead. So here’s the status update:
Cover art for Goddess of the Hunt exists, but I cannot yet show you. 😛 It’s pending approval by…all those mysterious, powerful people who approve such things. Covers for the second and third books are in the works, and I hope to get a peek at them soon! My relatives can breathe a sigh of relief, because (unless something drastically changes) the “look” for the trilogy is very tasteful and pretty, with nary a nipple in sight.
I am expecting my line and copy edits on GOTH any day now…I’ve been assured I’ll have a whole week to go over them. 🙂 My second book, Surrender of a Siren, has been sent off for copy editing too, after I added a few pages to the epilogue at my editor’s request. No word yet on the third book, A Lady of Persuasion.
I was mentioned in Romantic Times! Okay, so it was half a sentence (maybe a third-sentence?) in a 2009 preview article (page 10 of the current issue, if you’re curious), but hey – Romantic Times!
Oh, and this is super exciting for me – that little novella I wrote over the summer? It’s going to be published as an e-book with Samhain Publishing, next May! SQUEEE! So there will be a little taste of Tessa Dare out there in the world a few months before my print trilogy releases. More about that in months to come…
And of course, I continue to work on The Desire of a Duke, AKA Stud Club, book one. LOL. You don’t know how much I want to write a scene with this dialogue:
“The first rule of Stud Club is: You do not talk about Stud Club.”
“The second rule of Stud Club is: You do not talk about Stud Club!”
Um, that would be referencing this movie, for anyone who’s scratching her head.
Oh, what the heck. While we’re breaking the rules and talking about Fight Stud Club, let’s have some shirtless Brad Pitt.
