As 2015 begins, I have exciting news and two humble requests!
First, THE NEWS! As some may know, my husband and I were in a serious car accident in August 2012. After not writing for a year, I was finally able to resume working last spring and am thrilled to announce that the long-interrupted saga of the Ransleigh Rogues will be completed soon! Alastair’s book, THE RAKE TO RESCUE HER, will appear in March 2015 and Dom’s book, THE RAKE TO REVEAL HER, in May 2015. Reminders will be sent as the release dates approach.
Which brings us to the requests. First, REVIEWS!
With the shrinking shelf space in stores, on-line book reviews have become ever more important. The more reviews a book has on Amazon, Goodreads, Barnes & Noble and other reader sites, the more likely it is to make a list that will announce its presence to other readers. And for that to happen, I would like to enlist your help.
Several of my older releases have very few reviews. In an effort to increase their visibility, I am offering free copies of FROM WAIF TO GENTLEMAN’S WIFE and THE SMUGGLER AND THE SOCIETY BRIDE to readers who will make a good-faith attempt to read them and post a review on Amazon, Barnes & Noble or Goodreads.
Any reader who writes a review and notifies me of its posting will be offered an Advance Reading Copy of the upcoming Rogue books, either in digital or in print. To request a review copy, go to my Contact page and fill out the form.
And finally, JULIA’S REGENCY FANATICS!
I am forming a group of reader/fans known as a “street team.” Members should passionately enjoy the Regency period in general and my books in particular, be enthusiastic about reviewing upcoming books, sharing information about new releases on social media and with friends in person and on-line, and distributing bookmarks and other goodies to reader groups and reader friends. Julia’s Regency FANatics will communicate via a private email loop/Facebook Group, which will offer sneak peeks of upcoming works, Regency tidbits and lore, links to Regency info online, and occasional prizes. It will be a place to learn about, discuss and support the Regency and Julia Justiss books.
Any reader interested in reviewing books and/or joining the Julia’s Regency FANatics is cordially invited to contact me at the following link: http://www.juliajustiss.com/streetteam.php
Happy New Year, and many thanks to you all!
