A Note From Lynsay

Hello all! Well, we've made it to spring. YAY! I'm not sure mother nature knows that though since I woke up to snow this morning. Let's hope that was winter's last hurrah and we are in for sun and fun in the future.

In the meantime, I have some news... the Sands' ranch has finally moved! Another YAY for that. The moving bit of our move is complete... as in all the furniture and boxes are here at the new hacienda, now we just have the 'tiny' job of unpacking the boxes and organizing it all... groan. The upside is that at least we now know where Emma the cat and Tori the house elf are. You see, we sort of lost them in midst of our packing. Locating them was a tad difficult as we couldn't even see our furniture from the mountain of boxes that was in our living and dining rooms. It got so bad that we sort of packed in some important items that we still needed. Things like envelopes, glass cleaner, dishes, Emma, Tori, etc. You know... the usual. Normal people lose a blender, a book or two, maybe even a plant but we lost Emma and Tori. God that must be a record... LOL.

Enough of this, I suppose you are all waiting for the results of the Argeneau contest which asked If you were single, which character from the Argeneau/Rogue Hunter series would you want for your Valentine? The two lucky winners that won a signed ARC of The Immortal Hunter were Anna Ford and Kimberly Klug.

Which brings me to my final bit of news in this month's newsletter. The Immortal Hunter is now on the bookstore shelves! This is the 11th book in the Argeneau/Rogue Hunter series and this story starts where The Rogue Hunter left off. With Decker and Bricker pursuing a rogue in cottage country. Along the way, Decker stumbles across Dani who leaves him completely disoriented which leads to some pretty awkward moments. Nice moves there Decker!

And of course the reissue of Love Bites is also hitting the bookshelves. This is the 2nd book in the Argeneau series and involves Etienne, Marguerite Argeneaus' 300 year old son and Rachel, the night coroner that Etienne's body was brought in to. Sound fun yet? ;-) And please keep in mind that the story is the same guys. It's just the cover that is different.

 
New Release

March 31 2009: The Immortal Hunter, the 11th book in the Argeneau/Rogue Hunter series is here. It's about Martine's son Decker Argeneau Pimms. He's a sweetie and his Dani is a doll, so I hope you enjoy their story, as well as the secrets coming out in this one. By the way, for any who don't know yet, the promised sample chapter is now up at the website for your perusal. Enjoy!

Also March 31 2009: The reissue of Love Bites hits the stands. I know this is good news for those of you who have been writing me complaining you can't find a copy of that story anywhere.

 
Upcoming Releases

Sept 29 2009: The Renegade Hunter, which is the 12th book in the Argeneau/Rogue Hunter series is coming out this fall.  It will introduce you to an Argeneau who has been out of the picture for quite a while.  Intrigue and mystery surround this character and many of the Argeneaus you’ve met in the past will get involved in this story, along with your favourite enforcers and even a Willan or two.

January 2010: Another paranormal anthology called Bitten By Cupid will be coming out this winter. And because four very different writers will be contributing to this anthology, there will definitely be something every reader can sink their teeth into.

Winter 2010: The second book tentatively called Sweet Shrew from the Devil Of The Highlands series will be coming out this winter although no definitive release date has been set as of yet. It involves Evelinde’s brother Alex d’Aumesbery and his bride to be, Merewen, the Stewart Shrew.

The Latest On Lynsay's Foreign Books

There’s an adage familiar to most people that says something along the lines of how modern technology is making the world a smaller place as each day passes. Now, while the internet and newsletters such as this one prove the point extremely well, I have, over the past few weeks, been made even more aware of the truth of the smaller world sentiment. Only this time it’s been a rather strange and peculiar occurrence which has made particularly conscious of this concept.  It seems like every other day there’s been a knock on the back door of spice acres which, upon opening the door, is revealed as yet another express mail delivery through the international networks of UPS, DHL, NCIS, SVU, CSI (Ontario), or whoever it is that delivers packages and solves crimes in our neck of the woods. So many of these recent deliveries have been samples of foreign language editions of Lynsay’s books... read on.
