I stink at updating! BUT I HAVE COVERS!!Posted by in Blog - Jessica Clare | Blog - Publishing Stuff | Jessica Clare
I really do. To be honest, I've been swallowed up by the deadlines that never end. Not that I mind - I'm happiest with a deadline in front of me. But that means that some things suffer...like my webpage. And um, my email. Which I'm still behind on, but whatever!
I do have some news! For those of you asking about upcoming Jill Myles releases, since those are self published, I don't have firm deadlines on them. I am working on a few things, like a few more LIGHT stories (starring Muffin, of course!) and a sequel to WICKED GAMES.
For my Jessica Clare books, I have a whole helluva lot of info!
First of all - mass market reprints of THE GIRL'S GUIDE TO (MAN) HUNTING and THE CARE AND FEEDING OF AN ALPHA MALE. Woohoo! For those of you that buy ebooks, that means the price on those will go down to $7.99. GGTMH will be released in paperback on MARCH 5, 2013 and C&FoaAM will be May 7, 2013. I'm excited!
Another question I get asked. When is Bluebonnet #3 coming out? The release date had to be shuffled a little, and is now set for January 2014. I believe the title is THE EXPERT'S GUIDE TO TAMING YOUR MAN but don't quote me on that. We threw around a lot of titles and I'm probably messing up the final one. It's Brenna and Grant's book, and it promises to be fun and steamy.
Need a Bluebonnet fix for 2013? Not to worry! I'm in a summer anthology with Carly Phillips, Jaci Burton, and Erin McCarthy called HOT SUMMER NIGHTS. I wasn't sure if I could share the cover, but I peeked around and it's posted online, so here ya go!
My story in this one is about a stunt blogger who films weird things like cow-tipping and ghost hunting and makes a living doing this. It's not the most normal of jobs, but she's not the most normal of girls. Anyhow, she has a run in with a fine looking officer from the small town of Bluebonnet, and you can guess where things go from there. It was a lot of fun to write and I can't wait to see what you think! HOT SUMMER NIGHTS comes out on July 2, 2013 and looks like it'll be in Mass Market Paperback for about $7.99.
Now the BIG news.
I have a new Jessica Clare series coming out! Yes, I know! Another! I'm not done with Bluebonnet, of course. I'm contracted for Brenna and Grant's book, along with another that features two characters that are introduced in their book but you haven't met yet. My new series is about...BILLIONAIRES.
*waits for the inevitable groans*
No, seriously guys! It's about billionaires! I had so much fun writing THE BILLIONAIRE OF BLUEBONNET that it got me thinking about more books. And I might have laughingly told my editor that if she wanted more billionaires, I'd be happy to write her some. You can guess where this went, right? She was interested! So I wrote a proposal, and she bought them. They're typical Jessica Clare books - fun, flirty, and ultra sexy. They just happen to deal with some guys who have a lot of cash at their disposal. It allows me to play with the setting and scenarios a bit more outside of Bluebonnet (which has normal people and normal jobs). I just finished writing book three and they have been SO MUCH FUN. I can't wait for you guys to read them.
Curious? Here's the cover for book 1: STRANDED WITH A BILLIONAIRE.
And the blurb:
He’s had a rough time after the death of his father and the betrayal of his fiancée. But with a visit to a recent business acquisition—a private island resort in the Bahamas—he has a chance to mend his broken heart.
When a hurricane blows in, a misplaced passport and a stalled elevator bring Logan together with an unusual woman named Bronte. She’s unlike anyone he’s ever met—down to earth, incredibly sensual, and even quotes Plato.
She also has no clue that he’s rich…
Bronte Dawson, a waitress from the Midwest, is stranded with the hotel’s domineering yet sexy manager Logan. What’s the harm in a little fling when it’s just the two of them, alone in paradise? But after several steamy island nights in Logan’s arms, Bronte’s ready to give her heart—and her body—to the man in charge.
But she soon discovers there’s more to Logan than he’s told her…a billion times more. Now, Bronte’s caught in a whirlwind affair with one of the world’s most powerful men. But can their love endure their differences or will it all just blow over?
Love. Sex. Money. Want more? Look out for the next steamy title in the Billionaire Boys Club series from Jessica Clare, coming from InterMix.
