Catch up: Romance @ Random, a 20% off sale, Starling teasers, and some new story news

There aren’t really words for how busy things are right now.  We’re in various stages of edits for three different novels, and we’ve started a fourth.  And of course, we’re deep, deep into the planning for Starling‘s release next month.

Since there’s a lot going on, here’s a round up on some things you may have missed, or things we missed telling you.

Item the first:

td-lakeeffect1400Torquere Press is having a 20% off sale on everything in the store now through Monday with the code  hapaug2014. Haven’t grabbed “Lake Effect” yet?  Now’s a good time!

Item the second:

dfta200You may have noticed a new cover on the banner for this site.  Torquere Press’s Please Don’t Feed the Alligators anthology will be available for FREE download from Torquere and All Romance on August 4.  It contains over twenty 500 – 1,000 word stories, including one from us featuring the two main protagonists of Starling.

“Bad Idea Alligators” is, however, technically a spoiler, as it’s set between Starling (available September 10, 2014) and Doves (available January 21, 2015).  We’ll post detailed download links when it’s live and give you some more information to help you decide whether to read the story now or later.

Item the third:

He’s been coming here a lot in the last year. The beach is one of the only places he doesn’t get recognized, if only because he appears to be one more pretty kid in a stupid beanie nursing unlikely dreams. Fame isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. On September 10, discover the truth. Starling by Racheline Maltese and Erin McRae. From Torquere Press in ebook and paperback.Racheline has Photoshop and she’s not afraid to use it.

Actually, she has an awesome Photoshop clone called Pixelmator, and she’s been making these promo cards for Starling featuring quotes from the novel.

These ones feature her photographs of L.A. "I’m sorry.  But I didn’t know we were together.  And I really didn’t know we were married.  I’m 21, and trying to do TV and a movie a long way from home.  I can’t do this right now." Fame isn’t fun. Find out the truth.  Starling by Racheline Maltese & Erin McRae. Coming in ebook & paperback from Torquere Press this September.Erin hasn’t been there yet, so the last time she was out there, she systematically documented locations in the series.

Future promo cards (keep an eye out) feature the book’s other locales: Washington DC (with photos from Erin) and New York City.

Item the fourth:

Racheline is still recapping True Blood for Romance@Random.  You can get her latest recap here.

Item the fifth:

We have several thing in the hopper of great news we can’t share with you yet as we wait on paperwork, but we expect to have a least one new announcement for you as soon as later today.  It’s about a story we first promo’ed on this blog, so stay tuned!
