Awesome week - Updated book news!

Once again - Something Wicked This Way Comes volume 1 is available for pre-order at kindle and Barnes & Noble. It comes out at those sites on Dec 20th. It releases at Ellorascave and other vendors on Dec 28th. Here are the links.

Kindle - LINK


If you click on the cover, they take you to Ellorascave where you can read all the blurbs in the anthology. I've gotten a lot of emails about this and I'm so glad that everyone is looking forward to reading it. These authors are really talented ladies. There are three more volumes coming, I wrote stories for each one, and for those of you who don't read my blogs...one is Captain of Nara's heart. It's a futuristic alien story with a human. Two of the stories are about vampires who know each other. There's also a werewolf story. : ) I don't know the order they are coming in except that Captain of Nara's Heart is in the first volume.

Book 5 in the New Species series. The books can be read as stand-alone stories, but it is advisable to read them in order to get the most enjoyment from the series.

One look at Brawn and Becca is wondering how he’d look without his clothes. Brawn is instantly attracted to Becca but has sworn never to touch a human female. They just aren’t sturdy enough and he likes his sex a little rough. He is shocked to learn he’ll be living with her when she refuses to leave her home. He is there to represent New Species and to learn about humans so maybe this will be a good educational experience. He just has to keep his hands off her.

His good intentions go astray when they are kidnapped and locked together inside a cage. Brawn finds himself reliving a nightmare when he is once again subjected to breeding experiments at the hands of New Species’ enemies. They will use Becca to get what they want from him. Brawn will do everything he can to protect her but they only have each other to depend on while trying to survive.

Brawn has a release date! Two of them actually. It's going to be available for pre-order at Kindle and Barnes & Noble soon (I'm checking hourly to add the links so they will appear in this post or in the comment section as soon as they load them). It will release at Kindle and B&N on Dec 27th! It will be available at Ellorascave and other places on Dec 30th. The excerpt and blurb are up at Ellorascave. Click on the cover and it will take you to the site.

I've gotten emails about how it's releasing for kindle and nook first before Ellorascave. It just worked out that way...I'm not sure why. I own an Iphone and an Ipad. I got free apps on both to buy/read kindle books. I know they have them for other phones and kindle has a free app so you can buy and read the books on your computer for those of you who don't want to wait. This is awesome for those of you who have complained about having to wait for kindle/nook and...there won't be as many issues the morning of the book releasing since you can order them from now until they come out with pre-order. Plus...bonus...from my experience books on pre-order at amazon are available just after midnight! AWESOME!!!

I got the tree up. The war with the cats has began. It's actually a funny story but I bought a ton of presents and 98 percent of them don't fit under the tree. My living room is small, I stole 1/3rd of it for my office...so there was NO place for the tree. I have a cedar chest under the front windows so I decided to put the tree on top of it. The first tree I bought...was too big so yesterday I rushed out to buy a 4 foot tree. It fits and it's up. I still have to buy a star to fit it - will do that today...but here's a photo. I wanted a white tree with blue lights. That wasn't something I could find so I decorated the white tree with white lights...with blue. But then added in some red for color. So here it is. LOL.

I have no idea why there is a gray strip but I'm having spacing/placement issues with blog and it will be a nightmare to try to reload the picture. LOL. So...I'm leaving it as is.

Happy Holidays and I will post the links to Brawn for pre-order in the comment section. Keep checking back if it's not there when you look. Have a great week!


  1. WOW Brawn's book sounds so great! Can't wait till Dec 27. I will defenitly be preordering!

  2. Woo very nice picture of Brawn's I am agree with Clarisse. And your Christmas tree is beautiful

  3. Here's the link to kindle. I think you have to copy and past in the comment section. I could be wrong. It hasn't loaded to B&N yet but I'll keep checking.


    Clarisse - Thank you!

    Mannouchka - Thank you too! LOL.

  4. Okay....
    First of all...love ALL your books...very addictive. Read most twice. My husband has been wondering why I haven't put my Kindle down on over 2 months.....Love the cover for Brawn..makes me drool. Where do the hot guys from the covers come from....do they pose specifically for your book cover or are they random pics that you just buy? Keep up the great work....tree looks great!

  5. This New Species series is so amazing. I cant get enough of it. So looking forward to Brawn. Merry Christmas and love your tree.

  6. Really love all of your books!! I can't wait for BRAWN, so far JUSTICE and VALIANT are my faves!! I also love all the Zorn books, I even bought the hard copies, and can't wait for more....I love that you are so commited; and that I look forward to your emails/blogs! I really think your tree looks beautiful!! Thanks for writing things that makes me actually want to read. I never used to like to read but now I am addictted. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all your Family.

  7. Anon - Thank you and LOL about your husband. The cover model on Brawn is named Angelo. He's an Ellorascave Caveman. I got to meet him in person since I go to Romanticon. He's a very nice man, tall, and he posed for the cover of this knowing it was for one of my book covers so...ultra COOL! Ellorascave has Cavemen who pose for pictures of covers and sometimes stock photos are bought. Ellorascave has some really talented cover artists. I feel blessed.

    Tammy - Thank you and Merry X-mas to you too!

    Katelynn - Books can be a wonderful thing. I've always been seriously into reading. As a child I picked up a book to go to magical places and have fun adventures. As an adult...I realized I'm addicted to romance. LOL! Merry X-mas and Happy New Year to you as well.

  8. Barnes and noble have loaded Brawn for pre-order. Here's the copy and paste link.


  9. Your book is now out for pre-order at Amazon.com as well. Just checked and have it on pre-order now. Love your series.


  10. Just pre-ordered Brawn from Amazon. It sounds really good, can't wait to read it. Justice was everything I hoped it'd be. I really love the New Species series. Of course, I love ALL of your books, especially the Zorn & Cyborg series. I'm really looking forward to the next books in those two series. Your tree looks great! I have 5 cats (I work for a vet & they were all left on the hospitals doorstep when very little & had to be hand fed) so I know how hard it is to keep them out of the tree. So far they've left it alone, we'll keep our fingers crossed. Have a Merry Christmas!! Pam B.

  11. Hey Laurann,
    Love the New Species series, awesome! The cover art is really great! I can't wait for Brawn's release, was really excited to see that Tiger has a book coming and I'm really hoping to see Brass get hooked up! Dayna

  12. Delighted to hear that the next book has a release date, it sounds amazing from that snippet you posted. Absolutely cannot wait!! :-)

  13. I just finished reading Valiant. Smoking hot...! When will Slade be available at Amazon Kindle?
