Summer’s Hidden Treasures: Week One Update!


Bunches of contest stuff to throw at you before we all go the best-seller route with some dude named Harry…

1. My thoughts are with the Hatchette Group. Their office is scarily close to this week’s steam pipe explosion in New York City. While the staff is reportedly okay, I’m sure their lives are a bit upside-down right now, so any good vibes you can send their way will be appreciated. A reminder that Hatchette is a sponsor of Summer’s Hidden Treasures, and I’ve got a box of books here to send you guys as prizes. Be sure to enter — and to check out some of their great offerings.

2. Today’s the release day for West of Mars groupies Christine D’Abo and Joely Sue Burkhart! They have new books out with Ellora’s Cave and Drollerie Press, respectively. If you like your romance hot and spicy, be sure to stop by and pick up their books. And if you post a review online somewhere, come on back and enter the permalinks in the Summer’s Hidden Treasures contest! Yes, both Ellora’s Cave and Drollerie Press are publishers I recognize for contest purposes.
