Coming Attractions for November!


by Anna Campbell

Wow, November is rockin' in the lair! We've shipped in extra cabana boys to cope with the extra strain on the bar!

We've got guests and giveaways galore and not one, but TWO infamous launch parties (yeah, you can see why we need extra staff!).

And don't forget, if you click on any of the covers, you go straight to Amazon!

First cab off the rank (such an elegant cab - clearly a Jaguar!) is fabulous historical romance author Sarah MacLean who will be my guest on Tuesday, 2nd November.

Sarah burst onto the historical romance scene this year with her fantabulous NINE RULES TO BREAK WHEN ROMANCING A RAKE. She's visiting us to talk about her November book TEN WAYS TO BE ADORED WHEN LANDING A LORD. Love the titles, Sarah!

Sarah is a load of fun (and she's doing a giveaway) so don't miss her visit.

On November 3rd, Jessica Andersen returns as the newest installment in the Nightkeepers saga launches. BLOOD SPELLS is Patience and Brandt's story. In their honor, Jessica will discuss "After the HEA" with us. She may also have a Big Surprise for us.



On 4th November, Caridad Pineiro visits the Banditas to celebrate the publication of her 25th release – STRONGER THAN SIN from Grand Central Publishing. This is the second in Caridad's Sin series. We like a bit of sin in the lair so that should be huge fun!














On Friday, 5th November, a dear friend of mine Emily May (who also writes brilliant fantasy romance as Emily Gee) will be here to talk about her latest Regency romance, THE UNMASKING OF A LADY. Emily is coming to the lair all the way from New Zealand and she'll be talking about her two identities and giving away a signed copy of her book.








On 9th November, Nancy will host Julie Kenner/J.K. Beck in the lair. Julie is here to talk about her latest series of vampire romances, WHEN BLOOD CALLS, WHEN PLEASURE RULES and especially her latest release WHEN WICKED CRAVES. Sounds like something the Banditas and their Buddies can get their teeth into! Oh, I do love the chance for a good meaty vampire joke!












On November 11th we have the lovely Donna Grant talking to us about her fabulous, pulse-pounding paranormal Scottish historical Dark Sword series. Her latest release is WICKED HIGHLANDER - ooh, I can see myself being wicked with him!












Aussie contemporary romance author Kandy Shepherd returns to the lair on Tuesday, 16th November, to talk about her wonderful new book HOME IS WHERE THE BARK IS. People who loved LOVE IS A FOUR-LEGGED WORD will adore this story about an FBI agent who gets involved unwillingly in a doggy daycare center. Kandy will be doing a giveaway!







On the 20th November, we have the first of our Bandita launches for the month. RITA winner and one of my favorite authors Beth Andrews lets her latest release A MARINE FOR CHRISTMAS loose in the lair. Swing by for mayhem and margaritas.

Here's the blurb:

It’s a wonderful life…?

Growing up in her perfect sister’s shadow wasn’t easy. Especially because JC Montgomery had been in love with Liz’s boyfriend for as long as she could remember. Brady Sheppard, a a guy who thought of her as only the kid sister. But that all changed when Liz married somebody else and Brady ended up in bed with JC! It was like a dream come true.


Except now JC’s pregnant. And Brady’s a wounded marine, so it’s going to be difficult for him to get down on one knee and tell her she’s his reason for living…But he will. Because she still believes in Santa Claus.

For 21st November we have a delicious treat for all you historical lovers. Delightful debut author Kieran Kramer is chatting with us about her Impossible Bachelor series. WHEN HARRY MET MOLLY, the first instalment in the series, hits the shelves this month.







To finish the month (11/30), we have another fabulous Bandita release to celebrate (oh, my poor aching cabana boys!). Tawny Weber's novella A BABE IN TOYLAND is out from Blaze in an anthology called IT MUST HAVE BEEN THE MISTLETOE... (Yeah, right!).

Here's the blurb:

They’re going to have a hot, hot Christmas...

The weather outside might be frightful—
but the Cole sisters are indulging in
something quite delightful...

Rita Mae Cole and Tyler Ramsey hail from feuding
families. Be together? Impossible. But the incredible
sex between them says otherwise....


After the huge success of my last contest where I gave away a pile of signed books, I'm doing it all again in my latest website contest. The question is really easy. Other than English, please name three languages in which my books are available. You might just find the answer on this page of my website. I'll choose TWO winners at random and those lucky entrants will receive signed copies of:

MY RECKLESS SURRENDER by Anna Campbell
DARK AND DEADLY by Jeanne Adams
NINE RULES TO BREAK WHEN ROMANCING A RAKE by Sarah MacLean
THE WICKED MARQUIS by Miranda Neville
PROOF BY SEDUCTION by Courtney Milan
Either WHAT HAPPENS IN LONDON or THE DUKE AND I by Julia Quinn

Good luck! The contest closes 30th November, 2010. Email your answers to anna@annacampbell.info For more information, please visit my contest page.

flchen1 said...

What a fabulous line-up for November! Woohoo!

And enjoy the GR, Gamistress! Hope he isn't too amped up with all the candy... He resisted all my best efforts to stuff him into an adorable pumpkin costume and snuck off into the night with his AK47 tucked under one wing...

Jane said...

Wow, it's already November. Ooh, it's always fun when there are Bandita releases to celebrate.

Congrats on the GR, Gamistress.

Anna Campbell said...

Hey, Gamistress, you're a November bub? Happy birthday! You might even have a rooster staying over to help you celebrate!

Anna Campbell said...

Fedora, laughed at you TRYING to get the rooster into a costume!

Anna Campbell said...

Jane, isn't it scary how close we are to the end of the year? But November is definitely rocking here!

Cath's Chatter said...

am....running....out....of.....room...to...write...
Darn it!!! I need a new book to write down all of these great authors and book titles in and my hubby is going to flip if I have to get another bookshelf LOL
You ladies are having a very busy month =]......

Daz said...

What a fantastic line up. Every book listed there sounds delicious!

Christine Wells said...

Wow, what a line-up! Thanks for the preview, Anna. I'm looking forward to a fun November in the lair!

Helen said...

Helen

barb said...

well done gamistress66

What a fantastic month... will have to get the party hat out..... looking forward to reading about the books and authors and partying

Kim in Hawaii said...

Aloha, Anna! Missed the GR as I was handing out Halloween candy when my computer "dinged" with new post from the Bandits!

The Bandits have an exciting line up ... thank goodness we have a few holidays (Election Day, Veterans' Day, and Thanksgiving) to sleep in after the Bandits' parties!

Kandy Shepherd said...

Wow, Anna, what a great lineup. I'm looking forward to my visit!

jo robertson said...

Whooo hoooo, Faux Anna! What an impressive array of guests this month. Can't wait!

Which day is your birthday, Gamistress? I hope it's not close to Thanksgiving!

PJ said...

Congrats on nabbing the GR, gamistress! Hopefully, he's over the sugar high by now and ready to sleep the day away.

Another awesome line-up, Bandits! Looks like November's going to be one terrific month!

jo robertson said... Which day is your birthday, Gamistress? I hope it's not close to Thanksgiving!

It falls near (occasionally on) Thanksgiving -- the 22nd. My eldest sister moved across state when I was young so we always celebrated on Thanksgiving. Surrounded by family, lots of good food & laughter, pumpkin pie & birthday cake -- I never minded. To me Thanksgiving always seemed more my b-day than my actual b-day. Plus this way I got to spread out the celebrations more ;)

catslady said...

Oh, what great reads!! November is our birthday month with my husband, me, my nephew and best friend all having birthdays :)Many a time I've had pumpkin pie instead of a cake lol.

Anna Campbell said...

Hello, Miss Cath! Wow, that's one EXTREMELY stylish picture you have there! Laughed at the new bookshelf troubles. I desperately need some new ones - at the moment, everything I read is getting piled into the garage and that's starting to become unmanageable!

Anna Campbell said...

Daz, it's hard to keep up with all the great new stuff at the moment, isn't it?

Anna Campbell said...

Christine, it's going to be a blast, isn't it?

Anna Campbell said...

Helen, there's some fabulous guests on the way, aren't there? And I love that we've got TWO launches. I love it when there's a new Bandita book on the shelves.

Anna Campbell said...

Barb, I can promise you MUCH partying! Especially with the launches. The cabana boys have started asking for danger money!

Anna Campbell said...

Kim, you guys are nearly at Thanksgiving, aren't you? It's not a holiday we celebrate down here although I think it's lovely to have a holiday where you say thanks for everything great in your life. We do the big turkey dinner at Christmas when it's usually about a thousand degrees outside!

Anna Campbell said...

Kandy, it's always a blast to host you in the lair!

Anna Campbell said...

Jo, everybody's going to have such a fun month, aren't they?

Anna Campbell said...

PJ, lots of great books out this month. I suppose because the Holidays are coming and people are buying presents and hopefully finding a bit of extra time for reading.

Anna Campbell said...

And Gamistress, it must have been nice having people with time off on your birthday - including YOU!

Anna Campbell said...

Catslady, another November baby? Hope you have fun with all those celebrations!

Anna Sugden said...

Another great month - so excited to see some favourites returning and meeting some new authors.

Anna Campbell said...

Anna, it's kinda the ideal month, isn't it? A few old friends. A few great new faces. And TWO launches! I can hardly wait!

Daz said...

Anna, my TBR pile and wish list is out of control and it just keeps growing and growing. So much good stuff ...

Karyn Gerrard said...

Another fab month here at the Lair!!

Look forward to it! And wow, your contest rocks *scurries to your site*

Deb said...

Another great month in the lair!

Emily May's books are VERY HARD to come by in the States. I've been looking for her books at my little indie bookstore, but, sadly, none yet are on the shelves. I have a few of hers I want to read. (Karyn did a great review on Beauty and the Scarred Hero on her blog.)

Anna Campbell said...

Daz, I've had a reading break over the last two days and knocked a few books off the top of the TBR. Phew! Still so many great books waiting, though.

Anna Campbell said...

Karyn, this is one of the best contests I've ever run. All those books are FAB!!!! And I'm so grateful to my big-name author friends who signed them all for me. Collector's editions all! Good luck!

Anna Campbell said...

Beauty and the Scarred Hero is on its way to me, Deb. I have to say THE UNMASKING OF A LADY is one of the best historicals I've read this year. Just perfect in tone and emotional level and just EVERYTHING! You can get it from the Book Depository postage and packing free: http://www.bookdepository.com/book/9780263876147/The-Unmasking-of-a-Lady

Looks like they've got all her books still available.

Nancy said...

Gamistress, congrats on the bird!

Anna, great job with the lineup. We're going to have a rocking month here in the Lair.

Anna Campbell said...

Nancy, it's gonna be bigger than Ben-Hur!!!!

Anna Campbell said...

Thanks, everyone, for checking out the great stuff coming up in November! Lots of parties, lots of guests, lots of giveaways! No wonder the cabana boys are striking for more pay! See you round!
