Awesomest Book Video Ever

Back when we were doing Operation Auction, my amazing friend Maya Banks bid on a book video to be designed by the ever so talented author Tessa Dare.

Tessa creates incredible videos using the toys in her children’s bedroom. She created this video to highlight Maya’s upcoming Highlander series. (The books are amazing, by the way). To say this book video is hilarious and epicly awesome is an understatement.

You don’t want to miss it. I wonder if Tessa would create a video for me? 😉

Dear Readers

I read a blog post yesterday that disturbed me greatly. I won’t link to it or discuss the specifics, but it leads me to this.

Thank you. Thank you for buying and reading my books in print, or digitally, through the library, book club, either online, through your local book store or UBS. I am so grateful you found my books and found something in them you enjoy, and that you keep coming back for more. I don’t care what format you read my books in, or where you buy my books, as long as it’s convenient for you. I don’t care if you preorder them, buy them on release day, or during the first week of release, or a month or two later. I’m grateful you read my books, I always have been, and always will be. I love to get emails and read Twitter and Facebook posts from you where you talk about my books and my characters and who and what’s coming up next. Your enthusiasm fires me up and keeps me going.

There isn’t a day that goes by that I’m not grateful for you. Without you, I don’t have a job.

So again, thank you.

This ‘n That

A few items:

Operation Auction, the auction for our romance community member Fatin, is loaded with some amazing items. If you want to see some of the incredible things going up for bid when the auction starts on March 27th, check it out here and start making your list. Something for everyone!

And speaking of awesome, editor Angela James will be teaching her online self-editing workshop, “Before You Hit Send”. It’s a three week bootcamp of some of the best self-editing I’ve ever had. I’ve taken the course twice. I’ve been writing a long time, and believe me, no matter how good you think you are at editing your own book, you can sometimes forget the basics, or no matter how much you think you know, you might be missing some things that will make your book better. I highly recommend this detailed, informative workshop. Click here for details and registration.

I had a great conversation with my Berkley editor yesterday about the Play-by-Play sports series. We finalized a title for the hockey book which will now be known as TAKING A SHOT. This will be Jenna’s book for those who are wondering. TAKING A SHOT will release in February, 2012. Yay! We also discussed the fourth book in the series, at least as far as which sport I’ll be doing. But I’ll leave you guessing on that part for now. Yes, I’m a tease that way.

The DABWAHA tournament voting is up and running! Even if you didn’t register for the DABWAHA tournament, you can join in the fun and get your vote on. New books to vote on every 12 hours, so get to voting!
