I am really excited about this one, so fair warning.
On November 22nd, The Other Guy’s Bride, the long, long, long(!) awaited sequel to As You Desirewill finally hit your Kindle, with the print version following one month later. I’ve read the book and it’s fair to say that’s one of the reasons I’m so excited. I’ll have more to say later, but this new book is a worthy successor to a book so fondly remembered by so very many of us.
You know, there was so much controversy over how this book is being published and now we’re down to what really matters.
We’ll be back in a few weeks with a giveaway, but, in the meantime, Connie offered us an exclusive excerpt from the book to whet your appetite. So, read it, enjoy – and leave a question or your reaction for Connie in the comments.
We had quite a party around here when Connie Brockway announced her intentions to self-publish several books that readers have long been waiting for, including sequels to As You Desireand, my personal favorite, All Through the Night. While this discussion was punctuated with many booyahs, there were also quite a few complaints from those who don’t have an eReader and no plans to get one. Turns out more than just readers were listening.
About a month ago I was here announcing my intention of “going rogue” by writing and publishing my own books. The announcement certainly garnered more attention than I’d expected, including from Amazon. Soon afterward, they contacted me with a fabulous proposition: Would I like to be the launch author Montlake, brand new digital and print and audio publishing imprint dedicated to romance.
It didn’t take long for me to say yes –even though it meant I had to down-grade my status from “rogue” to “roguish.” Because I’d been impressed with AmazonCrossings, and I knew they could do similar wonderful things for the romance genre. Now I don’t mean to sound disingenuous, but my first consideration really was the reader. One of my greatest regrets in “going e” was the thought of disappointing those of you without an eReader. (Oh, yes. I read every comment.) Montlake will make my books available to everyone, in every variety of formats, including print, though digitally the books will only be formatted for Kindle—but remember, you can download a free Kindle app that you can use on your phone or your computer.
