News roundup

Bad Vivien! I got so bogged down in work late last week and on the weekend that I totally forgot about Flashback Friday until Pepper mentioned yesterday needing something to blog about. So the fact that our flashback showed up on Sunday is totally my fault. Hopefully, this week will be better.

We have a new cover to brag about! Our upcoming release for Liquid Silver, Fortune's Return, is about a man who returns to his childhood home after a bad break-up, only to fall for his brother's new ranch hand. Pepper asked that we request David, who did all her solo titles there, because he creates original canvases that then get scanned in rather than using stock photography. The end result is quite evocative, we think:


On the review front, it's been good.

At Romance Junkies, Robin Snodgrass reviewed Chasing Silver and gave it 5 blue ribbons:
Jamie Craig has penned a thrilling adventure in CHASING SILVER. This time-travel romance is filled to the brim with non-stop action, sexy dialogue, and sensual love scenes. Remy is a sassy, street-smart heroine who refuses to give up, no matter what the obstacles. In my opinion, Nathan is the perfect hero for her. He is strong and protective toward Remy even though she is a strong woman who does not need coddling. They work exceptionally well together whether tracking leads, dodging bullets, or just having fun in the bedroom. CHASING SILVER is an inventive and exhilarating adventure that you do not want to miss. The explosive conclusion left me breathless! I cannot wait to see what Craig has in store for these remarkable characters in the future.
Natasha Smith at the same site reviewed Trinity Broken and gave it 4.5 blue ribbons:
TRINITY BROKEN by Jamie Craig took me on a rollercoaster ride like none other. I could not stop reading this book and while I winced, cried, and even got angry at the turn of events in the storyline, I relished and cherished the end result which was a truly magnificent story of love, forgiveness and the ability to overcome horrendous odds to find true love. Quite simply, it was glorious. Sara and Cameron are mates and while they love each other, their ability to love and accept Josh into their lives is very beautiful. Josh had never experienced anything as profound as Sara and Cam’s love and his ability to accept them as well is realistic and often times steamy! The trinity that is Cam, Sara, and Josh is written in such a way that unconditional love is endless – and to me, that is the way it should be.
We've also gotten an early review for our new release tomorrow at Samhain, A Hidden Beauty. Mrs. Giggles gave it an 83 and called it a "romantic gay story." She especially liked Jefferson: Jefferson has that nice tortured artist vibe about him that is most attractive. He doesn't overdo his whining or self-pity, in fact, he's an adorable woobie who is hurt and in need of some TLC.

Last but not least, we have a new contract with Samhain! The story we were working on last week, actually, at our editor's request. Querida is a May/December het novella and is scheduled for a July 22 release.

I'm so sorry you were busy last week! Hopefully this week will let up.

And the cover is beautiful. It has an Old Western feel to it and makes a nice change of pace from the stock photo covers, like you said.

And I've noticed Liquid Silver's been putting out a lot of Western/Cowboy stories for m/m fiction lately. Must be very popular with them!
