A Note From Lynsay

Well... there is a lot going on here or at least that's what my assistant Terri keeps telling me. I'll qualify this statement by explaining that I have my head buried in copy edits at the moment so I'm a little focussed on the things directly in front of my nose, which happens to be my newsletter right now. It has been some time since I sent out a newsletter so I felt it was long overdue. read on

August 31, 2010: Born To Bite, the thirteenth book in the Argeneau/Rogue Hunter series, will be coming out this September. Armand Argeneau has been living on a farm squirrelled away from public life for decades without anyone bothering him. Until now that is. Lucian has been kind enough to volunteer Armand to babysit Eshe d'Aureus in order to protect her from a rogue vampire out for revenge. At least that's the story he's told. In reality, Eshe was sent to Armand on assignment to find clues to explain his many wives' 'accidental' deaths. This installment of the Argeneau/Rogue Hunter series will also answer the unanswered questions from Nicholas's story, The Renegade Hunter.

November 30, 2010: Hungry For You, the fourteenth book in the Argeneau/Rogue Hunter series will be coming out this December. It involves the last of the Willan sisters, Alex, and one of Martine Argeneau's older sons, Cale. Alex is a successful chef and restauranteur trying to expand her business, unfortunately the new location's debut seems to be riddled with bad luck. Can Cale, a successful european chef . . . er . . . businessman, help her keep her business afloat and still keep her frazzled attention long enough to see him for who he really is . . . the love of her life?

 
Contest #13 For Some of Lynsay's Swag!

At this point, no one's heard much about Armand. He has remained outside the Argeneau's inner circle for some time. About the only thing we know is that he doesn't see his children and he's lost 3 wives. Basically, he could be anyone or anything. However, there's an excerpt from Born To Bite posted on my website and I want you to read it and tell me which actor you think would make a good Armand? Name the actor, describe why in a maximum of one paragraph and submit it to Terri by midnight on Tuesday, June 15th. The winners will get a promotional bag from the publisher.

For example - I think Jackie Chan would make a great Armand. He has lost 3 wives therefore Armand would to be able to defend himself and his family at a moment's notice like Kung Fu Panda. He would have to have a sense of humor to survive his tragedies and be so long lived. He would have to be a bundle of energy to manage a farm like he does... you get the picture. <G>
