Our Lynsay is a very busy girl at the moment so I am subbing in for her again this month. I will do my best to keep you entertained and informed as to what's happening in Lynsay land. :-)
October is here and you know what that means... Yes, our favorite holiday is quickly approaching, All Hallows' Eve! Remember the good old days when our parents helped you make your costumes? They'd rip up old sheets cut out some eyeholes, tie a rope around your waste and send you off into the night. And if the eyeholes didn't match up correctly with your eyes (which, lets face it, they often didn't!) you'd be peering out of only one, bumping into your trick or treat buddies all the way down the street. Or how about the poor kid whose parents thought it was a great idea to dress him up as a robot but he couldn't navigate very well because his box body was just too big and kept running into everything. I remember one year my mother dressed me up as scarecrow... wow, that was a bad costume. There was straw stuffed in my collar, wrists, ankles, even under my shirt. I was itching all night. I really don't know what she was thinking with that one but I still had fun. Back then they had to put some effort into it. Nowadays you can go to a store, buy a plastic cat outfit or a felt witch costume, slap it on and hope that it lasts the night without the fragile seams tearing. I think I like the homemade costumes better. They may not have been as flashy or precise but they were made with love... and possibly a lot of duck tape. Those were the days!
We were recently informed that there have been a few changes made to the release dates of some of Lynsay's upcoming books. Here are the new release dates. They will be released as mass market paperback.
The Husband Hunt will now be released on February 28th, 2012
Under A Vampire Moon will now be released on April 24th, 2012
The next release coming out on October 25th is the anthology The Bite Before Christmas. This novella is about Teddy Brunswick, the chief of police from that little town like no other, Port Henry. Teddy has seen both his longtime friends, Mabel and Elvi, find soul mates. Singledom has become a scarcity now that the Argeneaus and their friends have found Port Henry. Christmas is one of Teddy's least favorite holidays so he decided to escape up north to be alone. Too bad it didn't work out that way.
Jeaniene Frost will also be contributing a story to this anthology and both stories revolve around vampires and Christmas. I guess this year we can say "Bite Me!" at Christmas.
Congratulations to the winners of contest #21 who will receive a signed copy of The Deed, Cindy Colohan and Virginia Campbell! The answer to the question in order to be entered into the draw was Emma. Lynsay's cat shares the same name as the main character in The Deed, Emmalene. Over the years Emma has made more than a few guest apearances in my newsletters and it was nice to see so many readers knew the answer. ;-)
And there are a couple of new contests. One is for a signed copy of The Bite Before Christmas and the second is a bonus contest in celebration of Halloween. Both contest details you will find below.
I think that's enough news for now. Hope to hear from you all soon when you enter the contest(s).
