Teagan: Lulu! What the Sam Hill are you doing here? I’m trying to work on Atonement in Bloom. You are not part of the “Atonement-verse.”
Lulu: I figured you could use my help. I mean, Lilith is the cat’s pajamas, but she’s snoozing. You were supposed to finish that novel before spring ended. I hate to break it to you, Sheba, but you’re about out of time.
Teagan: Ha-ha… the cat is the cat’s pajamas. If you don’t skedaddle back to Valentino’s train right now, I’ll sing Don’t Bring Lulu. I know how you hate that. How am I supposed to do anything else when you keep doing the Lindy Hop into my head? Now scoot!
I’ve seen so many great books making their debuts already this month! Silly me (after all this time) I thought Atonement in Bloom would be one of them. Unfortunately it doesn’t seem likely. I’ve promised myself all year that I would publish Bloom this spring. But the only one I’ve been kidding is myself. The solstice is nearly here.
So, I decided to feature other new releases for this month — or at least the ones I know about. I humbly apologize if I missed anyone. That seems unavoidable. Let me know and I’ll do a follow-up. In no particular order…
Sir Chocolate and the Sugar Crystal Caves Story and Cookbook. Authors: Robbie and Michael Cheadle. Blog: Robbie’s Inspiration
Soul Swallowers. (Pre-order). Author: D. Wallace Peach. Blog: Myths of the Mirror
The Gemini Connection. Author: Teri Polen. Blog: Books and Such.
Cusp of Night. Author: Mae Claire Blog: From the Pen of Mae Clair
Extra Innings. Author: Don Massenzio. Blog
Sweet and Sassy Weddings (boxed set). Includes “Hold ‘Em” from author Jacquie Biggar. Blog: It’s All About the Romance
So many wonderful writers with brilliant books.
I hope you’ll be at the station Wednesday to get aboard the diesel-punk train for Hullaba Lulu. It’s my latest pantser serial, featuring illustrations by Rob Goldstein.
What the heck. Let’s make it a party!
