Meeting Her Match by Justine Elyot hits shelves today

What goes on in the bedroom tends to stay in the bedroom. Justine Elyot fearlessly brings all of those secret fantasies into the light in her new Meeting Her Match.

A music school teacher named Cherry decides to try one of her most secret fantasy (BDSM) in a book that’s finally due out in paperback today: Meeting Her Match.

“What I wanted to do with this book – apart from turn people on – was think about the point of intersection between public and private life,” Elyot writes on her blog. “I don’t want to pontificate on the subject here – it’s covered in the story – but it’s an issue that has troubled me for most of my adult life and I thought it was worth discussing.”

It’s an interesting fact: what goes on in the bedroom tends to stay in the bedroom. And even talking about with a friend goes too far. Elyot fearlessly brings all of those secret fantasies into the light in Meeting Her Match.

Tiger by Laurann Dohner hits shelves today, author shares story on how she met her hubby

Laurann Dohner releasing a follow-up to her bestseller Wrath (Book 6 in the New Species series). Dubbed Tiger, the book hits shelves on April 10, 2012.

Book 7 in the New Species series comes out in paperback today. In it, Zandy finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time after drinking too much. When she comes to, she’s in the arms of a miraculously hunky man named Tiger. Despite their mutual attraction, the special ops soldier Tiger has made it clear that he will never take a mate.

Laurann Dohner’s books have recently enjoyed a big spike in popularity with Wrath (Book 6 in the New Species series) hitting the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists recently.

“I’m…stunned,” Dohner wrote on her blog. “Honestly. Humbled. I was a housewife with a love for writing, a dream that I refused to give up, and I never expected my books to do this well or be read by so many. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Every day I feel extremely blessed because I get to do what I love so very much.”

In the same post, Dohner goes on to tell the story of how she met her husband.

“I knew he was the one when he took me and another friend of mine shopping at the mall. She had been invited to this formal event and we were sitting inside this dress store while she tried on gowns. A song came on over the speakers and he held out his hand to ask me to dance. Glass windows to the interior of the mall be damned. So there we were, slow dancing around racks of dresses to Wind Beneath My Wings and Under the Boardwalk (Bette Midler sung them). People stopped to gawk at us but we didn’t care because it was one of those moments when only the two of you exist.”

Nora Roberts to publish 200th novel with debut of The Witness

It’s hard to believe, but Nora Roberts is on the verge of publishing her 200th novel when The Witness comes out on April 17, 2012. Nora Roberts’ first book…

It’s hard to believe, but Nora Roberts is on the verge of publishing her 200th novel when The Witness comes out on April 17, 2012. Nora Roberts’ first book, Irish Thoroughbred, hit shelves in May 1981. Since then, she’s been publishing books at a rate of 6.5 a year. That means it takes her on average less than two months to complete each novel.

Roberts claims she’s able to write so fast due to her rather strict schooling. “I … have a great deal of discipline – a gift from the nuns who educated me for the first nine years of my schooling,” Roberts told BookBrowse.com in an interview. “Nobody instills the habit of discipline and the shadow of guilt (two essential writer’s tools) like a nun.”

All told, Roberts has more than 400 million copies of her books in print. That means sales of more than 2 million copies per book. Expect The Witness to wind up on a lot of shelves!
