It is no secret I’ve been a long time fan of Carole Mortimer and it pleases me so much to have her as a guest on my blog again to tell us about the latest book in her Alpha series. Carole has written over 200 books in contemporary romance, Regency, and her own hot romantic suspense series, Alpha.
She is Recipient of the 2015 Romance Writers of America Nora Robert’s Lifetime Achievement Award, 2014 Romantic Times Pioneer or Romance, and in 2012 was recognized by Queen Elizabeth II for her ‘outstanding service to literature’.
She is very happily married to Peter, they have 6 sons, and live on the beautiful Isle of Man.
Here she is to tell us about Shadow Alpha. Welcome, Carole!
This summer is such an exciting time for me!
On July 15th Shadow Alpha, my 200th book, became available in trade paperback as well as ebook. It’s for those readers who don’t own an ereader, or so many other who have asked me to publish a physical copy of my 200th book for their ‘keeper shelf’.
July 24th sees the release of Renegade Alpha, the 5th book in my bestselling ALPHA series. I have been overwhelmed by readers’ response to this romantic suspense series. All five books, so far released in the series, are currently all in Kindle Top 100 Bestseller lists. I absolutely love writing the ALPHA books, and Lijah Smith, the hero of Renegade Alpha, is a particular favourite of mine. He’s really hot!
The pre-order for Warrior Alpha, the 6th book in the series, to be released October 4th, will also be available on July 20th.
I am currently in New York at the Romance Writers of America conference, and tomorrow evening the RWA are very kindly presenting me with the Nora Roberts’ Lifetime Achievement Award. This is such an honor for me, the pinnacle of my 37 years as an author.
Even more exciting, my whole family are joining me in New York tomorrow, and they arrive in time to be able to attend the RWA awards ceremony. Then we’re all going to have a wonderful week’s holiday together in New York, one of my favorite cities in the world. We’re also going to celebrate my birthday while we’re there. It isn’t till August 5th, but who can resist celebrating in New York, so wonderful they named it twice? I certainly can’t!
Also this month my cover design lady and I have been putting our heads together and coming up with some spectacular designs for the covers for my new Regency novella series. The pre-order for the first novella will be available early September this year, with a release date of November 4th. I am so excited about this new Regency series. It will be published alternate months with my Alpha series during 2016.
August 27th sees the publication of Pursued by the Devil, by Bad Boy book for Tule Publishing. What fun I had writing this novella! Mikhael is exactly the sort of dark and brooding hero I love to write about, and Lindsay is every bit a match for this “bad boy”.
Hope you all have a great summer!
