A Preview of Coming Attractions!

HANK: Thanks so much for the kind words about yesterday's New Years Eve poem! Next year, more verses. I’m already keeping notes on rhymes for next year: Lesa (piece-a cake?) and Rhonda (easy one. Quite fond a).

A funny thing happened on the way to the 2010 preview. I thought it would be fun, you know, to compile a list of upcoming books and stories from the friends of Jungle Red. Fun to see the coming attractions. So I asked around, requesting just the basics and figuring I’d just put it all together, slap it on the blog, and have a fun look into he future.

But it turned out to be more than that. As I sat at the computer, copying and pasting and downloading and alphabetizing, it became more than an edit session. Forgive me for being sappy, but it became a lovely ritual. Here were so many peoples’ hopes and hard work and years of devotion and persistence. Each time I made name bold, or put a title in caps, I thought of the person who created it. How often they’re thought about it, how they certainly struggled , and how excited they must be to have their pub date draw near.

It started as a kind of little gift to you—a way to let fellow authors have a tiny moment in the spotlight. (Such as it is.) But it turns out, it’s a gift you have given to me. To allow me to think of each of you, separately, and as part of our writing and reading community. And to share in your happiness. Thank you.

Anyone who’s not listed—put yourself in the comments!

(And the covers are randomly interspersed…and some didn't work at all. Blogger wins that round. Sigh. Think of the spacing as...surprising.)

And happy happy new year from all of us at Jungle Red Writers.

Happy New Year all. So glad I discovered this blog. Next year I have a romantic suspense, NOWHERE TO HIDE coming out on July 16th. I've also got two short stories in a mystery anthology, but no title or release date yet.

Sheila Connolly said...

Orchard #3 is coming out in March: Red Delicious Death, which is all about opening a new restaurant, complicated by the death of the sous chef. Lots of good food!

I'd tell you more about my new Museum Series, but we still haven't named Book 1. Berkley's marketing department and my editor are deep in discussion... Look for it in October. I think. Nobody tells me anything--I'm just the author.

Elaine Viets said...

Wow, what a lot of work on your part, Hank. But thanks for listing all those book. I see my 2010 TBR pile growing into a tower.

Hank, what a wonderful thing to do! And some great books now on my reading horizon.

My first paranormal/time travel, FAERIE FATE, comes out April 9, 2010. The second one, FAERIE FIRE, at some point after. I'm still in revisions for it.

May the coming year be bright, wonderful and filled with magic for all of us!

Hey Hank! Thanks for including Winging It: A Memoir of Caring for a Vengeful Parrot Who's Determined to Kill Me! Looks like lots of fabulous books (with awesome covers!) to look forward to in 2010~

Thanks for the opportunity to say that Last Writes, my fourth Forensic Handwriting Mystery is scheduled for July. Just waiting for the cover to post the first chapter at www.claudiaroseseries.com

I am grateful for this exciting list, and also grateful for the opportunity to share my news. My first mystery, Deadly Dues (TouchWood Editions) will be released February 18, 2010. Deadly Dues is the first in a series of rollicking Lulu Malone mysteries, set in the world of film and television, from the POV of a 40ish actress who moves between fame, and anonymity, while discovering dead bodies, dodging overweight and inept assailants, shopping for shoes and reveling in thrift store finds.
I would attach the cover but don't have the faintest idea of how to do it for this list. It is lime green with a black patent stiletto with a tasteful drop of blood on the toe. I especially like how my name is really BIG at the bottom of the page. :)

Great list of new books. I especially enjoyed seeing all the covers. Don't you think cover art has taken a huge step forward during the past few years? It is not only provocative concerning a particular story, but most of it really is...art! The cover art for my upcoming book, JOURNEY TO DIE FOR (sixth in the "To Die For" series featuring Carrie and Henry)isn't complete yet, but here's a hint: Not since "Silver Streak" has a train ride led to such danger. Thanks for the list! Radine

I'm so late to this party, it's embarrassing, but thanks for mentioning IMMACULATE DECEPTION. What a gracious bunch of writers you ladies are!

Today, though, is the launch for Mary Kennedy's DEAD AIR. (The protag is a radio psychologist.) I got a sneak peek, and it's terrific!
