I’ve finished most of my revisions on A Night to Surrender–just a few little things to wrap up, hooray! (And I do think that title’s going to stick.) It also looks like the release date will be August 30, 2011. I really hope I have a cover to show you soon! Thank you so much to everyone who left “anxiously awaiting” comments on my previous post. 🙂 They really mean a lot to me.

Next week, I hope to post a little more about the new series.

In the meantime, I’m moving house on Facebook! I was getting too close to the limit for Friends, so I’ve opened a new Fan page that will eventually house all the updates, giveaways, and such. If you’ve been a Friend on my profile page (or even if you haven’t), I’d love it if you’d come “Like” my new page now. To kick things off, I’ve uploaded a new photo album of some pictures from my trip to England that inspired locations in the new series. You can view it here. And all next week, I’ll be giving away an autographed book every day, so don’t miss out!

I’ve updated my contest page with a new giveaway – and I’m making up for lost time by giving away five hot new historical romances in one bundle!

I recently learned rights to my first trilogy (Goddess of the Hunt, et al) were sold for French translations. C’est magnifique! Finally, a translation I might be able to read…just a little. My high-school French is quite rusty.

And I’m very excited to be a guest of the Friends of Huntington Beach Library for their Romance Authors’ Tea on February 10. Romance and tea and libraries – three of my favorite things! Other authors on the panel will be Patricia Wynn and Carol Snow.

Hope all is well with you and yours, and you are not buried under too much snow, or nursing some horrid winter cold. Cheers!

    Hi Tessa–your new fan page is a beaut! I look forward to more news on your new series next week (especially since I am both buried in snow and nursing a horrid winter cold–I’m craving happy news). Have a great time at the tea tomorrow!

    I really would like to see a book about Claire (Stud Club). I found her story very interesting.

    Too bad August 30th isn’t my birthday which is coming up in early March but I shall patiently wait and buy myself a late present when the new book comes out! I’ll be a frazzled first time “momma” by then and in need of a distraction when baby is napping…unless I happen to be napping too…

    Dear Tessa,

    I just watched your homemade “Stub Club” video. P-r-e-t-t-y Guuudddd, quite creative of you. I have a good chuckle. 😛 😀

    L-O-V-E your books too, right from the very first one I read which was in reverse, read the 3rd book in the Stud Club series first. Duhh! 😳

    P.S. Don’t worry, w/ good books like that.. You’ll have lots of $$$$$$$ soon. 😛 😛

    It’s thrilling to read all of this. I just saw some comments on one of the fan fiction sites from 2007 where someone was asking about your story, and someone else said, OOOHHH I love that story! Me too, I said to myself. And look at you now! I am SOOO(OOOHHHH) happy for you!I’m a little behind, having read only the first trilogy, but I’ll get there. I might even try the French version.
    Best Historical Romance in 2010 (nominated)? Words fail me.
