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!
