Coming Attractions for November

While we Aussies are getting out our swimming cossies and slapping on the sunscreen,  soon, all our American friends will be hauling out their winter woollies and gearing up for Thanksgiving. 

(Perhaps some will be shivering sooner than others. There’s been some extreme weather up there. We hope our Bandita Buddies and their loved ones are all safe and sound!)

 Whether you’re trying to beat the heat or getting warm by the fire, it’s a balmy day poolside in the lair.


Here’s what we have coming up for you this month:

On November 2,  Catherine Gayle will chat to us about her book SEVEN MINUTES IN DEVON.

November 3 brings a very special guest–Lorna Doone from Suzanne Ferrell’s new small town contemporary romance, CLOSE TO HOME.

Lorna runs the Peaches ‘N Cream cafe, the local hangout where all the good stuff happens (you know the mayor tends to hold court there, most dates start or end there, and any good gossip can be found there), and Lorna has no problem sticking her foot into people’s private or not-so-private business. So if you’re in the mood for a gossip and a good dose of Lorna’s medicine, drop by on Saturday. You’re in for a treat!

What a very special event we have coming up on November 6! It’s Election Day in the US and party time in the Lair as Jeanne interviews Nancy to launch RENEGADE.  

Join us as we celebrate the Bad Bandita’s highly anticipated debut!

All good things must come to an end, and SPELLFIRE, the book Nightkeepers fans have been waiting for, will close that series.  On November 8, Jessica Anderson joins Nancy to chat about the finale.


On Friday, 9th November, Tiffany Clare  is returning to the lair to tell us about her fabulous new series, the Dangerous Rogues, and to introduce her new release WICKED NIGHTS WITH A PROPER LADY.



November 12 brings Vanessa Kelly back to the lair with HIS MISTLETOE BRIDE:

“This holiday, seduction is the sweetest gift of all.”




On Friday, 16th November, Nancy Robards Thompson  and Katherine Garbera visit the lair to tell us all about their latest releases TEXAS CHRISTMAS and CALLING ALL THE SHOTS.

 This should be a lot of fun!





Addison Fox visits the lair on November 21st to chat with Suz about COME FLY WITH ME.





On Tuesday, 27th November, lair favorite Miranda Neville will visit to tell us all about her great new series and her latest release THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING WICKED 





Anna Campbell is running a Women of Style Unite to Win Totes! contest on her website.

    November already???! Aack! Thanks for the exciting run down of what we can look forward to this month! 🙂

  • Jane says:

    Happy November. The last few days have been surreal. Hopefully things calm down in November.

    • Cassondra Murray says:

      Jane you mean the weather?

      I saw some shots of Manhattan all dark. That was surreal for me, too.

      • Jane says:

        Yes, Cassondra. We still have no power in our building and most of downtown Manhattan. I’ve been staying in my cousin’s house.

  • Helen says:

    Whoo Hoo another fantastic month in the Lair with great books releases and great guests as well

    I am looking forward to it

    Have Fun

    • Cassondra Murray says:

      Helen is it hot down there where you are yet? We had our first freeze here last night.

      • Helen says:


        Yes it is warming up we have had a couple of days this week in the very high 30’s C already I think we are in for a long hot summer and we have had a few fires as well sad .

        Stay warm

        Have Fun

  • Barb says:

    November already…means it is too close to Christmas …. going too fast

    Some more great books to add to the list and great authors….

    • Caren Crane says:

      Barb, I feel just the same way. I practically panicked yesterday when I realized Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Ack! What happened to October??

  • Janga says:

    Clearly November is going to be another fab month with the Banditas. I look forward to all the new releases, all the guests, and more of the usual mayhem and mischief. Happy November!

    • Caren Crane says:

      Janga, you’ve got our number. It’s all mischief and mayhem, all the time. Be sure to stop in tormorrow, because I’m hosting Catherine Gayle. There will definitely be mischief and, if the GR has anything to do with it, mayhem as well!

  • pjpuppymom says:

    Another great month in the lair! I’ll be here with bells on! No, wait, that’s next month. I’ll be here with turkeys on? No, that’s not right either. How about, I’ll be here with sore feet, swollen knees and a permanently fixed smile, dragging crazed, glassy-eyed holiday shoppers behind me. That’s right, folks. I work retail!

    Thanks, Bandits for giving me a safe place to retreat to for fabulous authors, soothing cabana boys and lots of fun, fun, FUN!

    • Caren Crane says:

      PJ, if anyone can herd glassy-eyed shoppers while wearing a perma-grin, it’s you, girl! We’ll be over here, munching on pie and sipping pumpking spice latte whenever you get a chance to stop in. 🙂

  • Connie Fischer says:

    I’m so excited yet again! Each month keeps getting better and better. If seeing these gorgeous novels continually appear on the scene doesn’t keep one happy, I don’t know what would! Congratulations to all of the debuting authors!

    • Caren Crane says:

      Connnie, aren’t all the new releases exciting? It’s like Christmas every month! I know everyone is thrilled about Nancy’s debut novel, Renegade. Not only does it have a smoking-hot cover, but it’s a great story too. What more could anyone want? 😉

  • jo robertson says:

    Whooo hoooo, Christine! Good times in the Lair this month!

    • Caren Crane says:

      I have a feeling this will be another fast-as-lightning month, Jo, don’t you? Before you know it, we’ll be wiping turkey gravy off our chins and wearing the stripes off our credit cards…

  • Susan Sey says:

    Whoa! This is some month here in the lair! I can hardly wait for Jessica Andersen’s wrap up to the Nightkeepers (Rabbit’s story!), but what’s really ringing my bell this month is Suz’s Close to Home & Nancy’s Renegade. Can’t. Wait. Wheee!

    • Caren Crane says:

      Susan, it’s all action, all the time this month, isn’t it? We get to hear about Suz’s Close To Home on Saturday and Nancy’s Renegade next week. Then I’ll be popping down to Grand Cayman for Pirate’s Week. I’m just saying…

    • Susan, thank you! I’m looking forward to Jessica’s visit, too, though I’ll be sorry to see the Nightkeepers end. And I’m also eager to read Suz’s Close to Home.

  • catslady says:

    A wonderful lineup as always. We have 3 birthdays in our family this month and then it’s Christmas before you know it. I am not ready for this!!!

    • Caren Crane says:

      Catslady, it will be one big party for you this month! Three birthdays in a month will wear a woman out, now. Throw in Thanksgiving and a hefty dose of early Christmas shopping and you may need B-12 shots before December! 🙂

      Be sure to check in here so we know how well you’re weathering all the paryting and whatnot!

  • Pat Cochran says:

    Great line-up of guests for this month!
    Looking forward to “seeing” both new-to-
    me authors and current favorites, like
    fellow Texan Bandita Suzanne Ferrell !

    Pat C.

    • Caren Crane says:

      Pat, the visit from Lorna Doone from Suzanne’s new book Close To Home should be a hoot on Saturday! You won’t want to miss that one, for sure. 🙂

  • Cathy P says:

    November looks like another great and fun month in the Lair. Really looking forward to it.

    I sent an email to Anna about her 2nd book in the Sons of Series and got it back both times. I sent it to

  • I’m extremely late to the party, but I’m glad to be here. Christina, great job pulling everything together.

  • Melody May says:

    So many great selections for this month. 😀

  • Mary Preston says:

    Bring on the Christmas reads. I am SO ready!!
