Yesterday while at the bookstore I ran into that feeling that I have had many times over the past few years.
I was frustrated.
Maybe it's the authors I read but it feels like none of my auto-buy authors get published for about 5 months and it seems to be right about Christmas. I've been hard pressed to point out books people can buy for me because nothing of interest is around. This then carries into the first few months of the new year. There was one year where I had to wait until May for a book that I knew I would love (it was an Anne Stuart).
So in the spirit of lifting uh, my spirits, I thought I would write up an 'anxiously awaited' list.
Anne Stuart's Ice Blue (April 1st)
Kresley Cole If You Desire (April 24)
Kresley Cole If You Deceive (May 22)
J.R. Ward Lover Revealed (Mar 6)
Lisa Kleypas Sugar Dady (Mar)
Nalini Singh Visions of Heat (Mar 6)
Nalini Singh Bound By Marriage (Feb 13) Silhouette Desire
Adele Ashworth The Duke's Indecretion (April 24)
Lisa Valdez Patience (May 1 - if I'm lucky)
Excuse me while I get a paper bag to breath in.
And, we're back.
I need some help guys! Where do you guys go and read about upcoming books? I mean, Stuart is going to have more than one book published this year right? *please say yes, please say yes, please say...* J.R. Ward also publishes about every six months. So where do I go to find out this information? (Amazon is useless unless there is a secret part I don't know about)
I know I ran across a site at one time that seemed to have many romance books listed for the publishing year but I can't find it. I've been googling and searching and I can't find anything.
I go to AAR for the month by month book releases but they are normally only a month in front. I want a list of books that are almost surely going to published in 2007. Someone must have this information.
Another question, why are authors no longer putting up their publishing schedule? I go to Stuart's site and she only mentions the next book to come out. I go to J.R. Ward's and see only Butch's book up and well, even saying something like 'A Brotherhood book November 2007' would keep my eye from twitching! I just need an inkling - I don't need to know who it's about or even the title, I just need to know that something, anything is coming my way!
Whoops, did you just get an eyefull of my crazy slip?
Like you didn't know it was there.
Remember when they (who the hell are they and where are they located) used to say 'so and so has a book coming out in 2010' and we'd all ooooh and ahhhh?
Where the hell did those people run off to!!
Damn, the bag ain't working.
Off to surf and calm the hell down.
