CAPA And Other News

So yesterday I was thrilled to learn GODDESS WITH A BLADE won the CAPA for Fantasy Romance! Thank you The Romance Studio and your wonderful reviewers 🙂

And it’s always a happy day when I see my deal in Publishers Marketplace:

Author of Heart of Darkness, Lauren Dane’s GOING UNDER, continuing her Bound By Magick series, to Leis Pederson at Berkley, in a two-book deal, for publication beginning early spring 2013, by Laura Bradford at Bradford Literary Agency.

Got a lovely review for HEART OF DARKNESS from Reader to Reader Reviews – It says in part: Funny and sexy, Heart of Darkness is a dynamite paranormal romance and a great start to Dane’s new series “Bound by Magick”. Dane develops the paranormal world which exists alongside our own skillfully, and the modern version of witches and their covens now being multinational corporations is an intriguing one. Meriel is tough and strong but not obnoxiously so. Dominic is her perfect match, as well as being seriously sexy. Heart of Darkness is such a good read that waiting for the next in the series is going to be so difficult, especially if Dane’s next book focuses on Dominic’s friend Simon, a gorgeous werewolf.


And a Recommended Read for HEART OF DARKNESS over at Joyfully Reviewed as well! Jo says: With two strong and loving lead characters, passion, magick and suspense, Heart of Darkness became an instant favorite and earned a space on my keeper shelves. Joyfully Recommended to all paranormal lovers, who want a paranormal that is a little different. I can’t wait for the next book and I bet you will be waiting with me after reading Heart of Darkness.

This sniffle-worthy review of NEVER ENOUGH over at I Just Finished Reading was a very nice part of my week I must say!Thank you for this: Every word, beautiful. The emotion, palpable. This was the best book I’ve read in the last 10 years. Easily.

And now I’m back to work! Looking to finish up Laid Open this week. Have a great Wednesday!!!
