January’s Coming Attractions!

Welcome to the Lair!! It’s a blustery cold day outside. The weatherman has been predicting colder than usual temperatures and possible flurries this month, so Sven and Paolo have been busy stocking in warm drink supplies, (cocoa for hot chocolate, rum for hot buttered rum, whiskey for hot toddies, dark red wines for mulled wine), while the gladiators have been cutting down trees in the forest outside the Lair so we have plenty of firewood!

As always we have a steady stream of zany, provocative and fun posts from all the Banditas. (17 different personalities pop up monthly!)

Starting tomorrow with an art gallery tour of my house! Intrigued? Wait till you see it!

And to help keep you warmly entertained, here are our guests for this month:


On Monday, 7th January, Anna Campbell will host sparkling Aussie author Jennifer St. George in the Lair. Jenn will be talking about her debut romance The Convenient Bride.




January 21st Caren Crane will host Regan Black, who will give us the intel on the newest installment of her 2096 futuristic romantic suspense series, In the Interest Of Security. The novella is included in The Mammoth Book Of Futuristic Romance.



On the 24th self-publishing sensation, Liliana Hart makes her first appearance in the Lair with Suzanne Ferrell to talk about self-publishing and Liliana’s newest release Shadows And Silk. Love that cover!



We just love debut authors in the Lair, (heck we all were one once, too!) and on Jan 27th Joan Kayse hosts author Alison Atlee with her debut book The Typewriter Girl.



On January 29th, Grace Burrowes chats with Nancy Northcott about the pleasures of writing a long series and her newest book, Lady Eve’s Indiscretion.



On Jan 31st, New York Times bestselling author Carla Neggers will be here to discuss her latest release That Night On Thistle Lane, with Bandita Beth Andrews.

  • Jane says:

    Happy New Year. I’m excited about Carla’s upcoming visit to the lair. I just finished “Saint’s Gate.”

    • Caren Crane says:

      Jane, Happy New Year!! Not sure having the GR show up as the first visitor on your doorstep is a sign of good luck, but…better than nothing, I suppose! 😀

      We’re excited about Carla coming to visit. I hope we see you long before then, though!

    • Jane, I love Carla’s books too and she’s absolutely lovely in person if you ever get to meet her, unlike our feathered friend! Happy New Year!

    • Jane, congrats in the rooster and Happy New Year to you, too! I haven’t read Carla’s books, so her visit will be an intro for me.

  • Happy New Year, everyone! It’s heading for late afternoon on the 1st down here in Oz so I think 2013 has definitively started. Let’s hope it’s a good one. And wow, it’s starting off with a bang with all these great things happening in the lair in January! The joint’s a-gonna be rockin’! Poor Paolo! Thanks for the roundup, Suz!

  • Mary Preston says:

    Happy New Year!!

    Lot’s to smile about in the post. The year is looking good from the get-go.

  • Kaelee says:

    Happy New Year!!!

    Just finished some bubbly and some hors d’oeuvres. My husband woke me up so I could see the new year in. Back to bed now dreaming of gladiators, hockey hunks and hunks in general.

  • Amy Conley says:

    WOW! What an exciting month for guests and booty. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

  • Helen says:

    Happy New Year Everyone

    I wish it was cool here LOL another hot one today 39c so the air con is on again.

    Sounds like another fantastic month in The Lair I am looking forward to all of the guests and the great times this month

    Have Fun

  • Carol Cork says:

    Happy New Year to all you lovely ladies!

    There’s actually a clear blue sky here in Cardiff. Such a lovely way to start the new year after all the rain and grey skies recently.

    Really looking forward to all the goodies you’ve got in store for January!

    • Anna Sugden says:

      Blue skies here in Cambridge too, Carol. Hope you haven’t been suffering with floods.

      • Carol Cork says:

        Anna, we’re very lucky because the Cardiff Barrage, which was built some years ago to provide a fresh water lagoon for water sports, provides protection against flooding down on the coast here. Excess water just flows away through the locks into the Bristol Channel.

        • Anna Sugden says:

          Very glad to hear it, Carol. We’ve managed to escape here too! Though we’ve had more rain than normal, it’s nothing like what all of you in the west have suffered.

    • Happy New Year, Carol! I’m glad the weather has improved and you missed the floods.

    • Amy Conley says:

      You live in Cardiff? I have a picture of my great-great grandmother walking along a beach or boardwalk in Cardiff.

    • Joan Kayse says:

      Cardiff Carol? As in WALES???

      SO cool!

      I’ve been to Ireland five times would love to visit Wales, Scotland and of course Cambridge. Ahhhh Someday…someday

  • Anna Sugden says:

    Popping in to wish all our BB’s a very happy new year and hope 2013 is a great one all round!

  • Barb says:

    Happy New Year

    Another good month and doesn’t look like the TBR pile is going to get any smaller… looks like it will get bigger still lol

  • Beth Andrews says:

    Happy New Year! Looking forward to another fabulous year in the lair 🙂

  • pjpuppymom says:

    Happy New Year, Bandits and BBs! Looks like another terrific month in the lair to kick off a brand new year!

  • Louisa says:

    Happy New Year to all of the Banditas, the BB’s and even the GR – wherever he is!

    Another great lineup in the Lair.

    Wishing everyone love, laughter, health, prosperity, success and most important – lots of reading material in 2013 !!

  • Happy New Year, Louisa!

  • Happy New Year, everyone! It looks like the Lair will kick it off in style. And if Suz’s art tour is what I think it is, I can’t wait to see it.

    I’ve replied to all of yesterday’s comments. Sorry I didn’t get back before midnight. The prize post will go up tonight.

  • Joan Kayse says:

  • Dianna aka Hrdwrkdmom says:

    Wow! What a great way to start the New Year, it is going to be an exciting month in the lair.

    Happy New Year everyone! Sounds like a fantastic beginning to a great new year at the Lair.

  • Sorry to be absent here today, y’all. Started out the new year with a sore throat and no voice.

    Hope YOUR New Year is much better!
