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. read on

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.
