Star Light, Star Bright....Interstellar Interview 2008 Extended Edition


Instead of having another author today, I thought it would be nice to see what the authors featured over the course of this year have been up too seen we last talked. So please peruse the roll call below and stay tuned for more bright publishing stars next year!

When we last chatted with Angela Knight, her latest releases were SHIFTER from Berkley and DARK ONE from Changeling Press. Her non-fiction book, PASSIONATE INK, which teaches writers how to write erotica had also hit bookstores. Since then her new series The Time Hunters has debuted with WARRIOR and the second book is due out in May 2009. Her novel CAPTIVE DREAMS, co-authored with her friend, Diane Whiteside, will be re-released in mass market paperback this month! Angela also announced that she’s been offered a new three book contract with Berkley! She says the order will be—a new Mageverse novel, a third Time Hunters book, and then another Mageverse novel with two novellas interspersed. So be on the look out for more from Angela in the future!



Jenna Black has a new Morgan Kingsley series novel called THE DEVIL’S DUE out this month! When Jenna did her interview in April HUNGERS OF THE HEART, the fourth novel in the Guardians of the Night series, was about to hit shelves. In August, she also celebrated the release of THE DEVIL YOU KNOW, the much awaited follow-up to THE DEVIL INSIDE. Jenna has also signed a multi-book deal for a new fantasy YA series! So stay tuned for exciting new releases from Jenna in 2009.




In May, FIRE IN THE BLOOD had just hit shelves as the latest Sexth Sense release by Kelley St. John. BED ON ARRIVAL came out in June, followed by LIVE AND YEARN in September, which we got a sneak peek of! These Harlequin series titles are books four through 6 of Kelley’s spicy original tales set in Louisiana and centered around some sexy ghost mediums. In February, she also has a new single title due out from Grand Central called FLIRTING WITH TEMPTATION!






Since June, Patti O’Shea has received more awards! IN THE MIDNIGHT HOUR, the first book in the Light Warrior series, won the Booksellers Best Award for Paranormal as well as the Laurel Wreath Award for Best Paranormal, and the Barclay Gold Award for Best Paranormal! The follow up to IN TWILGIHT’S SHADOW, and the third book in the series has also received a new name—EDGE OF DAWN. Be sure to look for this next installment about the Gineal in July of 2009!




Virginia Kantra’s Children of the Sea series is doing smashingly since we last touched base in July. SHIFTER, which included the prequel to the series, reached the bestsellers ranks. When she joined us for her Q&A the first book, SEA WITCH, has just hit stores, and in August the second book entitled SEA FEVER scorched readers hands with its hot cover. Stay tuned, because the third book, SEA LORD, is headed your way in May of 2009 with another gorgeous hunk front and center!






KISS OF FURY is Deborah Cooke's follow-up to the novel that kicked off her Pyr series called KISS OF FIRE. If you're into hunky men with an air of mystery as well as mythical dragons, the next offering, KISS OF FATE, will be hitting stores in February 2009 in time for Valentine’s Day!








Jennifer Estep is still recovering from her back-to-back Bigtime releases—KARMA GIRL, HOT MAMA & JINX—plus she’s hard at work on her new series, Elemental Assassin. The first book, GIN ON THE ROCKS, is set to debut in the fall of 2009 from Pocket Books. If you’re looking for giants, dwarves, and vampires, oh my, stay tuned to this writer’s website!

Mindy Klasky has created and started selling a new Cake Walk Calendar to benefit First Book, one of the charity’s she champions. 100% will go to First Book to give kids the chance to have their very own books. The calendar is a collaboration from Mindy and other romance authors to recreate the divine concoctions at Cake Walk from the Jane Madison series. Mindy is also hard at work on book two of her new As You Wish genie/vampire series. No date yet about the release of book one, so stay tuned to her blog. Her latest book, MAGIC AND THE MODERN GIRL, is still available! Make sure to grab a copy or ask for it for Christmas so you can find out what happens at the conclusion of the series!
