Hope Flames Release Date Change

Dear Readers,

I wanted you to be the first to know that the release date for my new book in the Hope series, HOPE FLAMES, has been moved to January 2014.  This was at my publisher’s discretion because they believe moving it to January will help to make the book as successful as it can be.  The new release date is January 7th.  I understand you’re all very excited about this book and so am I.  We apologize for making you wait, but truly believe this is the best thing for the book.

But I do have some fun news. There will be a contest coming up in mid-November, offered by Berkley, my publisher. They will mail 200 early copies of HOPE FLAMES TO 200 randomly chosen readers. Stay tuned in the coming months for more details about this upcoming contest.

The other good news coming out of all of this is, the first three books in the Hope series will all release next year. HOPE FLAMES will release in January, HOPE IGNITES in April, and HOPE BURNS in October.  I’m very excited about this new series and I hope you will be, too.

In the meantime, if you’re looking for a Jaci Burton “fix”, I hope you will check out my Play-by-Play e-novella, HOLIDAY GAMES, on sale November 19th.  It will be a sexy, fun, good time with all of your favorite characters from the Play-by-Play series as they celebrate Christmas!  You can preorder that from Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

And again, thank you for your patience. I’m so sorry you have to wait until next year for the first HOPE book, but I appreciate your understanding.

    Dang I hate it when Publishers delay a book but I understand and hope it does help with it’s success. I had/have it pre-ordered with Barnes & Noble in print since 2/21/13. I hope I can still get it at the sale price of $4.69 I pre-ordered it. I’ll have to email B&N and find out…I’m reading Hope Smolders right now in Hot Summer Nights. It’s good and I can’t wait to get Hope Flames.

    I am feeling just a tad pouty–I am not a patient person–but here is hoping the publisher is right and that the new release date helps the book do well.

    And the advantage of having the three books releasing within months of each other can never bee over stated.

    Thank you, Jaci!

    Aww, I’m not going to pretend that I’m not gutted, because I am… I’ve been been dying for this since I read the prequel novella. I understand that these things do happen, and if it’s good for your book and good for you then, I’m good to wait for it 🙂

    In the meantime I’ll have a re read of The Perfect play to keep me going 😉
