August Coming Attractions

by Beth

August is going to be a GREAT month in the lair. We have guests and launch parties and, as always, good times galore *g*

Tomorrow, August 2, starts things off with the launch party for Donna's REDEEMING THE ROGUE, which we'll celebrate with a cruise from England to America.

On Wednesday, 3rd August, Anna Campbell brings some starlight into the lair when she hosts historical romance author Jenny Brown who will be talking about STAR CROSSED SEDUCTION, the second installment in her Lords of the Seventh House series.

JD Tyler will be here on August 4th to tell us all about PRIMAL LAW, the first book in her paranormal shape-shifter special op series, The Alpha Pack.
J.D. Tyler will be here August 4 to tell us all about PRIMAL LAW, the first book in her paranormal shape-shifter special ops series, The Alpha Pack.

On Friday, 5th August, Anna Campbell is hosting one of her favorite authors, Helen Brenna. Clearly the world agrees with Anna because Helen won a RITA at the recent Romance Writers of America conference. Helen will be talking about her August SuperRomance HER SURE THING.

Harlequin Superromance author Karina Bliss is here on August 6 to discuss her new release, STAND-IN WIFE.

On August 7th, lair favorite Denise Rosetti returns to launch the powerfully sexy GUILTY AS SIN from Ellora's Cave.

August 12, USA Today Bestselling author Sue-Ellen Welfonder stops by to talk about THE TEMPTATION OF A HIGHLAND SCOUNDREL in which a roguish chieftain's world is upended when a dangerous enemy shatters the peace of a sacred glen just as a determined lady proves true love can conquer the most unwilling heart.

USA Today Bestselling author Karen Ranney will be with us on August 16. MY BELOVED is the medieval story of a woman summoned from a convent to finally be the wife of a mysterious man who dresses in a monk's robe and tells her they must never touch.

August 19 we'll welcome Harlequin Superromance author Sarah Mayberry and get to hear all about her newest release, ONE GOOD REASON.

I'm throwing a party for the launch of FEELS LIKE HOME, the final book in my Diamond Dust trilogy for Harlequin Superromance, on August 20 :-)

On August 25 we'll have our third launch party with Kate's latest release for Harlequin Desire, HOW TO SEDUCE A BILLIONAIRE!

August 31 we'll close out the month by celebrating the launch for Jeanne's DEADLY LITTLE LIES!! Jeanne promises to make it a fun day with prizes and some smokin' hot fun to kick off her latest TOP PICK and 4 1/2 Star winning sequel to DEADLY LITTLE SECRETS! Romantic Times called this one "Unputdownable!" How's that for closing out August with a BANG!

Anna Campbell is running a Mammoth and Midnight contest in July and August. Anna’s giving away THREE signed copies of THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF REGENCY ROMANCE which includes her mini-novella “Upon a Midnight Clear”. Winners will also receive a bonus signed copy of MIDNIGHT’S WILD PASSION. All you need to do to be in the draw is email Anna on and tell her the names of the two characters who appear in the excerpt from “The Chinese Bed” on her website. You’ll find the answer here: The contest closes 31st August, 2011. For more information, please visit Anna’s contest page:

Check out Donna's website for details on how you can have a chance to win a Kindle!

Is that naughty rooster coming to the mountains??

Gannon Carr said...

It looks like August is going to be another great month in the Lair. You ladies always know how to have fun!

barb said...

Are you taking him for a hike up the mountains Gannon

Hi Beth .... what a month ...plenty to add to the TBR pile LOL... looking forward to all these books

Janga said...

Every month is a great month in the Lair, and I can see that August is no exception. I'm especially excited about the Superromance authors visting. That's my favorite category line, and all four authors are on my auto-buy list. I've already read and reviewed Sarah Mayberry's One Good Reason, and I eagerly await the others.

Landra said...

Sounds like I have some shopping to do. Ooh, so excited about the upcoming books for August. Donna's is first on my purchase list.
All the guests and everything. Best birthday month ever~
Look forward to it ladies, and Gannon keep that chook busy, he needs a little mountain hike to wear him out.

jo robertson said...

Another great month! Thanks for coordinating the announcements, Beth!

Trish Milburn (Tricia Mills) said...

A hot lineup for a hot summer month!

Beth Andrews said...

Gannon, congrats on nabbing the rooster! I'm sure he's going to enjoy his day at the mountains *g*

August is going to be a great month - and I'm not just saying that because school starts this month ;-)

Beth Andrews said...

Barb, I plan on spending quite a bit of this month reading *g* There are some fantastic books to look forward too!

Beth Andrews said...

Every month is a great month in the Lair, and I can see that August is no exception.

Thanks, Janga! It's going to be a fun month.

Another thanks for your support of the Supers line! Linda Warren and Tara Taylor Quinn have books out this month, too. I'm honored to be in such great company as the other five authors :-)

Beth Andrews said...

Landra, August is my husband's birthday month, too! Actually, I sold my first book on his birthday (the 21st) four years ago *g* Makes it easy to remember the date!

Beth Andrews said...

It's going to be a great month, Jo. And I'm looking forward to reading The Watcher (love that cover)! Sorry I missed your launch, though. Looks like it was a wild time :-)

Beth Andrews said...

A hot lineup for a hot summer month!

Definitely, Trish! Luckily, the lair is always cool. And it happens to get too warm, one of the cabana boys can fetch us a couple of cold drinks ;-)

flchen1 said...

Ah, what a month! Yay for the fun in the Lair!

Anna Sugden said...

Another great month in the Lair with some great books and guests to look forward to!

Of course, it's my birthday month too, so I love August anyway *g*.

Anonymous said...

Great line-up!!!

Who is the rooster, by the way?

Loucinda McGary aka Aunty Cindy said...

August and the Lair is HOT HOT HOT!!! (which I know our Oz gals appreciate)

What FABULOUS COVERS for all those lovely books. My TBR Mountain is about to divide into two! ACK!!!

Antonia, the Golden Rooster is the 'prize' for the first person of the day to post a comment. I use the quotes because our GR really isn't much of a prize. He eats up all the chocolate, drinks all the liquor, and generally creates havoc everywhere he goes. Why everyone loves him is a mystery to me!


~Sia McKye~ said...

Some great books to check out! I need to get some of you to wander over to OVER COFFEE.

I have Donna's book ordered and it looks like a great story. Primal Law and Star Crossed Seduction looks yummy too. The Harlequins look good this month too!

Sia McKye's Thoughts...OVER COFFEE

Anna Campbell said...

Hey, Gannon, looks like you're having roast chook for dinner. Only joking!

Wow, what a big month we've got coming up and some of my all-time favorite authors are visiting too which is fantastic. Can't wait! Thanks for putting this up, Beth. And can't wait to read your new book. I loved THE PRODIGAL SON and this one sounds wonderful too.

catslady said...

Lots of great books as always. And I'm waiting for Midnight's Wild Passion to come in the mail - yay!

Helen said...

Well done Gannon it is a while since he has visited you have fun with him

Whoo Hoo what an awesome month ahead in the lair launches and visitors way to go

Have Fun

Beth Andrews said...

Hey, Fedora! It's looking to be a fab month *g* A great way to end the summer!

Beth Andrews said...

Of course, it's my birthday month too, so I love August anyway *g*.

Yay for another August birthday, Anna! As I mentioned, my husband's b-day is August 21st. His brother and a sister also have August b-days while three other sisters were born in Oct. Only his youngest sister has a birthday month all to herself :-)

Sheree said...

What a great lineup! And PRIMAL LAW has Paul Marron on the cover! Woohoo!

The male cover model of FEELS LIKE HOME looks like Thierry Pepin. Yummy!

Beth Andrews said...

Hey, Antonia! Hope you'll have a chance to stop by often this month!

As AC explained our GR is a prize to some, to others he's a bit of a trouble-maker *g*

Beth Andrews said...

AC, I love the covers! I was oohing and aahing over them as I put the post together *g*

Beth Andrews said...

Hi, Sia! So good to see you here *g*

If any of you haven't checked out Sia's blog, I highly recommend you do so! She always has great posts and really fun interviews :-)

Beth Andrews said...

I loved THE PRODIGAL SON and this one sounds wonderful too.

Thanks, Anna!

Thanks, Anna!

Jane said...

Happy August. I can't believe summer is almost over.

Artemis said...

An excellent line-up. More to add to the towering TBR. One of these days Hubs will come home and find me under it. LOL!

Beth Andrews said...

Hi, Jane! Summer always seems to fly by but honestly, by the time mid-August rolls around I'm ready for Fall *g*

Beth Andrews said...

One of these days Hubs will come home and find me under it.

LOL, Artemis! My first thought was, "What a way to go!" ;-)
