Fun publishing news

February 11th, 2015 | Comment »

IHOW trade coverWhile I’m brainstorming and researching ideas for Book 9, I thought I’d share some fun publishing news: IT HAPPENED ONE WEDDING is going to be re-released this summer in trade paperback!

Now, I realize that many of you already own a copy of It Happened One Wedding, so this news is probably mostly exciting for me. My publisher and I think that re-releasing the book in trade paperback is a great opportunity to reach new readers, and that’s always a good thing.

The trade paperback will hit stores on August 4th. The front cover is the same, but the stepback cover (the cover insert inside the book) and the back cover blurb are slightly different than the mass-market and ebook version. Any of you looking for a pretty trade paperback version of the book can pre-order a copy at Amazon. I’ll post links to other retailers as soon as they become available.

And here’s another nice thing: I just saw that It Happened One Wedding was shortlisted for the American Library Association’s 2015 Reading List for Best Romance!

Also, all eight of my books (including the upcoming SUDDENLY ONE SUMMER) are going to be translated into Croatian! That now makes my books available in seventeen countries world-wide, which is a very cool thing, indeed.

Some book news (And a giveaway!)

February 2nd, 2015 | 244 comments »

*Please note: the giveaway is now closed.

Hey everyone!

I have some news that I wanted to share: the release date of my next book, SUDDENLY ONE SUMMER, has been pushed back one month, to June 2.

Now, I know that I’m a bit of a slow writer, so I can guess how some of you might be feeling after hearing about this slight delay in the release date.

Or, for the super-fans, maybe even something like this:

But I promise you, there’s a very good reason for this teeny, tiny delay. And that reason is . . . I simply needed more time with the book. :)

On the upside, I’m really, really happy with the way the book turned out. I don’t want to say too much, but I did some different things with SUDDENLY ONE SUMMER–although don’t worry, it’s still very much a “Julie James” book. And it’s also the longest book I’ve written. Not to mention, the hero, Ford Dixon, looks like this:


Surely, he’s worth a one-month wait, right?

So that’s the low-down. SUDDENLY ONE SUMMER will be out June 2. You can pre-order it now from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Google Play, and iTunes. In fact, it’s currently only $5.99 in Kindle and Google play, so if you pre-order your copy now you’ll lock in that sale price. And who doesn’t love a sale, right?

Now for the giveaway part: As many of you probably recall, Ford, the hero of my upcoming book, first appeared in LOVE IRRESISTIBLY. So this week I’m giving away five copies of LOVE IRRESISTIBLY. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment below. (Those of you reading this on my Goodreads page should click here to enter.) Winners can choose between a signed paperback or a Kindle/Nook ebook. Giveaway is international and will remain open until 9pm CST on Thursday, February 5. Good luck!
