Wheeeeeee! Welcome to March!
Is it blowing in like a Lion where you are, or as mild as the proverbial Lamb? Aas usual, we’ve got a great lineup for March and a lot of exciting things going on. There’s also the Ides of March and the ever popular, green-beer-drinking joy of St. Patrick’s Day! WOOHOO!
We’ll all be lifting glasses of Guiness in March (or other beverages of choice…Irish Coffee, perhaps?) to celebrate book releases and MAJOR MILESTONES!
Lesseeee, where do I start? Bandita Trish has a fabulous new book coming out with Harlequin American. Her March release is COWBOY TO THE RESCUE, second in her Teagues of Texas trilogy.
Bandita Jo’s wonderful FRAIL BLOOD will hit the market later this month as well. It’s another brilliant read from Bandita Jo! (And I’m dying to get it b/c I only got to read a little bit….)
Our own Bandita Kate has a great new book out, ONE BOOK IN THE GRAVE, and yes, I know we talked about it last month, but did you know it hit the
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER LIST!? Kate’s latest debuted on the list at #15!! She also hit PUBLISHERS WEEKLY! Garnering a Starred review (nearly impossible!) and making a splashy #9 debut on THEIR list of great books!!
WOOT!!! Party Hats and Shamrock stew for EVERYONE!!!
Let’s see…ahem…okay, back to our regularly scheduled Coming Attractions pot….
So, what’s up in MARVELOUS MARCH?
Look out tomorrow, March 2, becauase our own Anna Campbell is coming on with the fabulous Annie West! (www.Annie-west.com) It’ll be a rocking day in the Bandit Lair with those two! Annie’s popping in to tell us about her latest American release, teh fabulous GIRL IN THE BEDOUIN TENT. Get out your Lawrence of Arabia gear for this wonderful sheikh romance, gals!
I don’t know about you, but I’m always up for (har, har!) a great read from Annie West! And when you get Anna and Annie together, in the same blog space….WATCH OUT!!
Diane Kelly makes her Lair debut on Saturday, March 3, with Bandita Nancy.I f you’ve never seen the humor in the IRS, prepare to have your eyes opened. Diane’s second mystery, DEATH, TAXES, AND A SKINNY NO-WHIP LATTE features the return of IRS agent Tara Holloway. Diane and Nancy will chat about Tara’s adventures and the hunky boyfriend she romances when the bullets aren’t flying.
Now you KNOW you want to be here for that! I’m betting that something goes BOOM! in this book, so I’m going to be front and center on Saturday to chat with Diane!
Now, as much fun as that’s going to be, brace yourselves for the wild and wonderful trio of authors coming on March 5! JD Tyler and Addision Fox visit with Bandita Suz to talk about their forthcoming e-novellas BLACK MAGIC and WAVE OF MEMORIES. A lot of you have your e-readers poised and ready to go for this one, I know. With all the wonderful success of Suz’s book, and the fabulous following both JD and Addison have garnered, this should be a fabulous day to tune in and hear about the amazing world of the e-novella!
March 6 is going to be yet another rockin’ day as Joan Swan (www.JoanSwan.com) visits the Lair with Anna Campbell again acting as hostess! This is Joan’s debut visit to the Lair with her debut book. She’ll be telling us all about her hot new romantic suspense, FEVER. Wow, that’s some cover!
On March 8, join Bandita Nancy for a Reader-Writer-Roundtable! Nancy hosts Maureen Hardgree, Eilis Flynn, Gerri Russell, Louisa Cornell, and Barbara Monajem for a discussion of who’s reading (and writing) what this month. I know you’ll want to join in THAT as all the Banditas, and Bandita Buddies are constantly updating their To Be Read piles!
Then we’re headed back to the dessert climes as Teresa Morgan, author of CINDERELLA AND THE SHEIKH, HANDCUFFED TO THE SHEIKH, AND SHEIKH WITH BENEFITS will guest with Jo on March 12. She’ll be discussing “What’s Your Hero Fetish?”
Oh my, THAT should get some interesting posts going, don’t you think? Hmmmmm? Grins.
Be sure to stop in. Sven and the gang are making hummus, importing a wide variety of olives, dates and other “desert-y” foods. (But don’t worry, if you don’t like hummus, he’ll have his usual array of other delicious delicacies!)
And Bandita Donna brings Jules Bennett to the lair on the 16th for an inaugural visit! Woot! We love meeting new authors in the Lair!! Jules new book IN THE SPOTLIGHT will be out this month from Harlequin Desire.
The ever-popular and well known Robin Perini guests with Nancy on the 18th, celebrating the release of her first Harlequin Intrigue, Finding Her Son.
And last but not least, join Bandita Nancy again on the 21st as she welcomes Jana Oliver to the Lair. Jana Oliver will return to the Lair with her demon-trapping heroine, 17-year-old Riley Blackthorne. Jana and Nancy will talk about Riley’s latest adventure, FORGIVEN.
