So I really did let it slip in my Monday blog (down below) what it is I am writing. Yes, it is true, I am writing Pippin and Dash’s book. If you can’t recall who Pippin and Dash are, then you haven’t read This Rake of Mine or Love Letters from a Duke. I’m not holding it against you, but really this news is hardly going to be as thrilling to you as it would be if you’d read those books. So if you haven’t, stop here, go read those two books and then come back so you can join in with all the other “Pippin & Dash” fanatics in a collective “huzzah!” We’ll wait for you. Really we will.
Well, of course we won’t really, because I know you P&D folks. You want their story like NOW. Well, it will come out close to now. As close to now as you can get in publishing. Because, here is the real news, Tally’s book and Pippin’s book, (now if you don’t know who Tally is, you really are in trouble, so your only choices are to go read the two aforementioned books or there is always my woefully out of date knitting blog to keep you entertained) so now if you are still with me, Tally’s and Pippin’s stories will be coming out next year back to back.
Yes, you read that correctly. In March of next year you will have Tally’s book (which, have no fear is finished and in NYC), then in April, P&D finally get their story told. No waiting 12 months. No waiting for an age. First one book, then four short weeks later, the next. Phew. And me? I’ll be the one in hand braces from all this furious and frantic typing.
But what if you can’t wait until then for something cool? Then remember, Tempted by the Night comes out August 26th, and if you can’t wait even until then, I have a really cool surprise, a freebie like you’ve never seen before, designed just for you coming out on Monday. At least I am told I will have it by Monday. And since Julia Quinn, Eloisa James and Laura Lee Guhrke are also part of the surprise, doesn’t that make you perk up and take notice. Intrigued? Come back Monday.
Anyhoo, what are you doing reading my blog when you could be reading the sneak peak for Tempted by the Night? Did I forget to mention that? I’ve posted a sneak peak. Right here.
So there it is. Tell all your friends, post it on all the boards. Sneak peak now. Very cool freebie on Monday.
Between now and then? Well, I don’t know about you, but I’ll be writing.
Way! To! Go!! I’m definitely huzzahing! I loved Pippin, and having two Elizbo books back to back is even better. High five, girl!!
Cool! Tempted by the Night comes out on my birthday! That’ll be a nice present for myself!!!
Finally Tally and Pippin getting their own stories and best of all coming out back to back. WOOT!?!!?
I am so excited about these books always love your stories Elizabeth can’t wait to read them
Woohoooooooo! I am so thrilled to see that Pippin and Dash finally get their story!!! And right after Tally, too! The good news just keeps on comin’! Thanks, Elizabeth, for emailing the news; I still haven’t figured out RSS feeds and I’ve got a reeeeeeeeallly long list of blogs and websites to check and I’m always afraid I’ll miss something. I’m marking down not only August’s but also March’s and April’s release info RIGHT NOW so I can order them for the library as well as for myself.
Holy Elizabeth Boyle!!! I am SO bloody excited to read them!!!! But how on earth do you find the time?! I bow to you (repeatedly) oh writing Goddess.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, for all the good cheer and enthusiasm. I must say I have been busting with this news, and writing furiously to get them done. And how am I doing it? Two words: The Plan. Which is what my husband and I will be speaking on at National. Organization, determination and really, really, loving the stories I am writing. Hey, who wouldn’t want to get up and spend the day with Johnny Depp, I mean, er, a pirate?
thanks for all of the enjoyable characters you have introduced us to in all of your terrific novels.I have always liked meeting new people and your heroines are so credible
Not know Pippin, Dash and Tally!! The very idea!!
Read the excerpt from Tempted by the Night and YES August is far, far away! And to learn that we get back to back books in 2009….well I’m all in alt!
THEN, we learn about surprises from three more of my fav authors – it just doesn’t get any better. Marking my calender!
I am soooo glad I signed up for your newsletter!
You are such an evil tease!!! I adore you, truly, but this is a new kind of evil. You know this right?
BTW, I’m hoping to take home the ARC! You know what I’m talking about and if you don’t, I’m not telling. See I can be evil too.
w00t! I’m so excited that we get Tally’s and Pippin’s story back-to-back! Love it when that happens.
And what a great excerpt! *sigh* Love me some Rockhurst. August 26 can’t come soon enough!
Will check back Monday . . .
Pippiiiiiiii~n youhouuuuuu *_* I’m so happy she was my favorite!!!
Now I’m gonna tell all my friends that read romance to check for the book when it comes out (I’m the one who keeps the schedule for the books realese lol = call me the ” reading planner”)
see you on monday for the “cool surprise”…
Haven, you can hold the lead for so long, (on the only ARC of Tempted by the Night out there) but what if someone where to tell people to go to my Event page and click on the link to Brenda Novak’s auction where they may find the chance to the read the book early? I suppose that would be wrong if someone told people about that, right?
Cornelia, we all need reading planners. It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it.
That’s so great, Elizabeth! I’ll definitely have to do a promo and book giveaway contest for you on my blog when “Tempted By The Night” comes out! And wonderful that the next one will be so quick to follow.
Nah, that just means the charity will get more of my money hehe.
My design package I’ve donated is going for a pretty good sum right now. I’m super excited about that!
And in case anyone missed the blatant hints given, you need to hop over to Brenda Novak’s auction. There are some awesome things up for bid (like Elizabeth’s ARC)!
This is so exciting. First it’s Tempted by the Night Aug this year, now we are going to have Tally’s book in March 2009 and then Dash’s book a month later!!! *Dancing in circles*
It is still to long a wait. I love your books. Can’t wait for this one
Pippin & Dash? Oh happy dance! The only fly in the ointment is the looong wait. But we get Tally at almost the same time, so I reckon I can practice on my patience gene and be a good girl about. I won’t pout too much.
