First, let’s get the bad news out of the way.
I know I said Shooting Scars was coming out in July, but it just got pushed back to August 20th. Why? Grand Central Publishing’s team felt they could do me and the book better justice this way and donate more manpower to publicity. It’s a pretty good reason that I think will benefit everyone in the end.
They know that you, the readers, will be disappointed by this news and they want to appease you (and me!). I will be working with GCP’s publicity department to come up with some treats for you — maybe along the lines of posting the first chapter to soften that Sins cliffhanger blow? Maybe giving away THREE Camden bracelets in this blog post? Well, that’s not a maybe…I’m going to personally do it, so keep reading to enter.
So there you go. August 20th is the official release date of Shooting Scars (will be on Nook as well as Amazon and all the major e-retailers at the same time).
Book #3 Bold Tricks (working title) is being released on October 15th. Hey, just a two-month wait!
Sins & Needles and On Every Street will both be taken over by the publishers next month in early June. This ALSO means that On Every Street will finally be available on Nook at that time.
Once again, I’m sorry to disappoint you with this pushback but there’s obviously very little that I can do about it. The publishers said they’d try to get it published in July but sometimes things don’t work out and they are trying to get things to work in my favor.
So, please, keep that in mind. It actually hurts my soul to see readers being upset with me over this or upset in general. Your support for me and my new publishers is MUCH appreciated.
Meanwhile, here’s the NEW cover for Sins & Needles.
Yup! It’s pretty much the same, except white font and my name is ridiculously big. So happy they kept the cover, I love it!
