Exciting upcoming news about books

 
Hello everyone! I have some exciting book news. First off, next month I’ll be in Ohio with Mr. Laurann for Romanticon. While there, I’ll be passing out promo items and on Sunday there’s a book signing. Valiant is coming out in PRINT exclusively for the conference. Unless you’re going....I know that isn’t too exciting but it’s being released for sale at Ellorascave, Amazon, and B&N on November 20th.

 
We have a cover for Shadow if you missed it revealed at Ellorascave’s Redlines and Deadlines blog! His book is the 9th in the New Species series. I don’t have an official blurb but I will say that it’s about Shadow and Beauty. You met her in Justice’s book when she was rescued by Jessie. Beauty is a Gift female who is a primate. I’ve let that information slip a lot when asked about Shadow’s book. I’ve been asked a lot about if she just a visitor in the book or more. MORE! LOL. Shadow and Beauty...run into each other and that’s just the beginning.  
 
 
 
I DO NOT have links yet because they aren’t added to the sites yet BUT...I know the release date! I got an email today giving me that information and I asked if I could share the news. I can! You ready? It’s going to show up available for pre-order at Kindle and B&N within the week (hopefully - it could take less or a little more time) for a October 30th release date. It will come out on October 31st at Ellorascave.  I’ll post the links once they are added so check the comments or I’ll just wait until it’s up on all three sites and post a new blog.
Whooo Hooooo! See? I think that’s exciting! LOL! To everyone wondering when the next Species book is coming...now you know. The end of October!
 
I am currently working on Blackie’s book from Cyborg. I’m hoping to finish it around the end of this month and get it turned in. It will probably come out at the end of the year or the beginning of next year. Edits take time so always give it at least a few months from the time I turn a book in until release date. I’m working on other books too. I can tell you this. Moon will be the next in the NS series. I’m working on books from the other series.  I don’t know which will finish next but...I’m working on them. Even if it’s just to add in a few thousand words every time I open up their files.
 
Happy reading! Now...I'm going back to writing.

  27. Love all your books. Love the pictures you showed us of the new home. So happy to hear you and the family have settled in nicely and VERY happy to hear the next Cyborg book will be out soon. I was missing them. Waiting patiently for Shadow to come out. I'm currently re-reading the Cyborg books for the 3rd time. When I finish them, I'll go back and re-read the New Species books. By the time I finish re-reading, Shadow should be out. LOL

    Now to update the NS database and dish with the discussion group.

    1. Database? Discussion group? Please share!

    2. Yeah What Charity said!?!?!? What discussion group?

      Delete
    3. Yes please! I'd like to know as well!

      Delete
    4. Oh, I am in a discussion group in Yahoo Groups with a few people who like paranormal romance novels and NS is one of our frequent topics. We are fans, but the group focuses on discussing topics whether we like or dislike something and such. We don't always agree. As long as discussions stay civil, any topic goes. We've also made some fan videos in YouTube and have some fan art posted (it's amature fan art but its cute).

      There are so many characters in NS we decided to make an NS database which we keep updated as new information comes out about characters. No bad guys though, just NS and their allies. There are enough of them to keep us busy without having to add bad guys to the list. The database is very helpful in keeping all the characters straight. We are constantly editing it and making corrections when we need to. The goal is to keep it as acurate as possible.

      If you would like to check it out, the address is http: // groups.yahoo.com/group/ParanormalRomanceR/ (take out any spaces).

      Anyway, that's what I was referring to.

  38. I tried to join in and site would not let me. I guess it doesn't like me! But I love my NS men!

  39. Love the NS series... Can't wait to see who gets stories next... I have my favorites who have been featured in previous books. Brass, Darkness, Jericho, Vengence, Moon, and Flame. I'm excited to see what their stories will be! Thank Laurann for making me a erotic romance believer!!

    1. I had the same idea! I don't think its crazy at all. I'm dying to see the two of them together!! Please, please Laurann!

  49. Really??? Moon is next? Man, no body has any love for Smiley. The guy has been waiting for ever! I want to see a little switch up and read a book about a primate (Beauty doesn't count). I'm really waiting for Smiley Ven and Jericho's books. Shadow comes out on my birthday!!! That will be my b-day gift form me to me :D

    1. Smiley is sweet. I have love for him..lol

    2. I have love for Jericho. He is so hot!

  50. I want someone for Smiley!!!! Please!!! and also Jericho too!! I am also eager for more of the cyborg series. So excited for the next one. I've been trolling Amazon for other similar books like yours but NADA! ZIP! purchased one book of other authors to try but nothing come close to all your books. Awesome!BTW Keep up the Excellent Work!!! Hugs from a Singapore Fan

    ReplyDelete
  51. Yeah.
    I'm voting for Jericho or Smiley's book right after Moon's . We crave for primate male story, L. Please hear our calling.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Yay for Shadow! Loved Obsidian! I felt like you were talking to me, because one of the comments I made on Amazon was that if I were talking to a new species and they made a mistake with their grammer I'd point it out to them, not make the same mistake to them. I know that if I were speaking a language I didn't fully understand, I'd want someone to tell me when I made a mistake. And you included it in Obsidian. With alot of authors their books tend to get boring over time, not yours! They get better and better! I preordered Shadow, I have to pace myself. It's like eating cheesecake. I can gobble it up and only enjoy for a few seconds or I can go slow and enjoy it! I have a suggestion for a herione in a New Species book, make her Aspergers, or at least on the spectrum. It would be cook to see her relate with the New Species and the New Species relate with her, since they have alot in common! Great books, and keep writing, FAST!

    1. Hi Jackie
      I had to look up your word "Aspergers", the book would be interesting to say the least, but let's look at the possibility of having our sexy NS men coupled of into some interracial loving.

      I know it may sound a little boring, I think it would be a good start.

      Happy reading

  53. Well, I was a bit surprise to read Moon will get his book, before Smiley. I'm now looking forward to Brass, Smiley, Ven, Jerihco, Darkness and let's not forget Jade, Bestial.

  54. Hi Laurann

    What do you say about some interracial loving for our sexy NS for your next book. After Moon:)

    LoL

    Thank you for your New Species Series.

    ReplyDelete
  55. If we can fantasize a little bit...

    What about a NS book with supernatural heroine? Catshifter maybe? Imagine her being captured in human form by unaware Mercile workers and putted into the cage with some untamed NS male, who wasn't freed yet - in order to breed them. I would love to see his confusion about human woman who smells nothing like human. And then she goes into heat (remember how intense catshifter female's heat was in "His Purrrfect Mate"?)and this stranger male is the only one who can soothe her pain.

    :)
