Gothic Blue reprint out today in the US!!!


Well, US chums, it's out today, so I hope you're racing to the shops to get it!

It's a long time since I wrote it [1995] but I do remember that Gothic Blue was huge fun to write and the first time I'd forayed into a full length paranormal erotic novel. I'm not sure what else was around at the time, but my editor reckons this was a book ahead of its time, considering how popular paranormal romance is now... And it's definitely a romance. There are two main love relationships in it, and one's so enormous that it spans centuries! There're are also plenty of spooky goings on at mysterious Sedgewick Priory and loads and loads of sex of all persuasions! So I'm really hoping you'll take a visit there and meet sexy Count Andre, Belinda and Jonathan, and quite a cast - for me - of other fairly libidinous characters!

If you wanna try before you buy, there're excerpts here and here and tomorrow there'll be another one over at LustBites.

To celebrate US Gothic Blue Day, I'm going to do a prize draw here today. Just leave a comment on this post - doesn't have to be about GB... can just be a hello - and on Thursday, I'll pick a name at random and announce the winner here! The prize will be a couple of books from my backlist.

Hello! Would love to win a copy of Gothic Blue!

I think what's so great about the 'book ahead of its time' comment, is that publishers are always saying they are looking for the next big thing. And you were there! Ahead of the others.

Well done, Wendy. Hope you and Kuffer are both well.

Yay, on the release, Wendy. I've not read any of your books yet, I'm sorry to say. They haven't shown up in my bookstore. If I'm not lucky enough to win, I'm defintely ordering - Gothic Blue and Continuum looks like must-haves. Have a great re-release day!

Hi guys! Glad you're all here joining in the fun... and don't worry, *this* comment is out of the running for a prize... although I may award myself an extra slice of cake or a chocolate treat!

ps. I'm an ultra cautious blogger, and this blog is comment moderated. So there may be a time lag before your comment appears...

Your book sounds very interesting. You must love the fact that an older book is being reprinted- that is neat. Kudos to you fellow Diva!

Hi Guys!

Just wanted to drop in and thank you all for commenting... It's lovely to have so many people drop by. I wish I had enough books on hand to give everyone a prize... I'm definitely going to give two prizes though, and maybe more if more people comment. I'll keep the draw open until tomorrow teatime GMT.

Love
