Normally, on Mondays, we’d have an interview here with one of the Carina Press team members, but I had to interrupt our regular blog content to share some really exciting news with you.
I’ve tried to write and rewrite this post several times, and, well, it seems the best way to tell you is to just announce it…
I’m so absolutely, unbelievably, freakin’ bouncing-off-the-walls pleased to announce that Shannon Stacey’s trilogy of books Exclusively Yours, Undeniably Yours and Yours by Design will be appearing in mass market print via the Harlequin HQN imprint in January, February and March 2012 respectively.
Seriously, my stomach is jumping just typing this and I’ve known since last Tuesday. I’m excited for Shannon, because the work she put into writing, editing and promoting these books was outstanding, and for the Carina Press team as a whole. It’s hard to believe how much we’ve accomplished in the last 9, going on 10, months of publishing books. Less than a year! I am so proud of how hard everyone has worked, from the authors and editors, the copy editors and cover artists, to the behind-the-scenes team members we’ve been showcasing on Mondays, to the people you may never hear about who work in the background for us, to get us to this point. Thank you to everyone who’s shown faith in us from the beginning (especially those authors who’ve trusted their work to us). And I know (oh yes, I know) there are more good things and announcements to come.
Last, a major thank you to all of you readers for your tremendous support of Carina Press and these Shannon Stacey books in particular. It’s thanks to your interest that we’re taking this next step!
Excuse me while I step out of my professional for a moment and just say…
