I know it's a few weeks late - mea culpa, all you lovely romancers - but the Winter Newsletter for Embrace Books is out and winging its way to subscribers. It's also available via Facebook and Twitter, for those who befriend us there.
If you're not on the subscribers' list, you can sign up here.
We have news on Michelle Styles and Kate Allan's jointly written and highly unusual Regency romance, The Lady Soldier, complete with 'deleted scenes' reinstated.
There's also a Love Letter written specially for us by romance writer Phillipa Ashley, from the point of view of a yearning Anne to her distant Captain Frederick Wentworth (a 'what happened afterwards' look at Jane Austen's Persuasion).
Not to mention some detailed How To tips for new writers on 'Writing the Opening to Your Novel' and more news on the impending launch itself.
In fact, the next newsletter will be our Launch Issue!
I shall pass swiftly over how terribly exciting that prospect is, and merely say that the elves have been very busy at Embrace this past week, with e-proofs winging their way to and from authors. This kind of activity will continue over the weekend and into early February, and then .... drumroll! ... we intend to launch Embrace Books officially on Valentine's Day, February 14th 2011.
So watch this blog space in the next two or three weeks, for some tremendous things are starting to happen here at Embrace HQ!
