Welcome to H&H's daily news roundup! Grab a mug of tea and a scone and let's gossip about what's hot in the romance world right now.
—Christina Dodd needs your help to pick a character name. Weigh in on her Twitter between names like Suzanne, Pamela, and more!
—Deal Alert #1: Kresley Cole's Sweet Ruin is still a few months out, however, Dark Skye, the latest book in the Immortals After Dark series is marked down to $1.99 at e-tailers like Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and iBookstore.* Need to discuss all things Kresley between now and the December release of Sweet Ruin? Never fear, I'm always here to talk about Nix's Perfect Match, dissect Dark Skye in our Spoiler Thread (and see Lucy Dosch's thoughts in her First Look of Dark Skye), or offer recommendations of authors to read if you like Kresley Cole.
—We've loved Phryne Fisher for a while (especially when we're talking Phryne and Jack). However, The Toast writer, Mallory Ortberg is apparently new to the 1920s kickass female sleuth, and wrote up this delightful piece on the things she yelled at her TV while watching Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries for the first time. For more Phryne, check out Willaful's Shipping Sunday on Phryne Fisher and Detective Jack—they will get together some day, gosh darn it!
—Deal Alert #2: It's never too late... well it might be if you don't snatch up Amara Royce' Never Too Late, currently marked down to $0.99 at e-tailers like Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and iBookstore.* See what Brittany Melson had to say in her First Look of Never Too Late.
—ICYMI: Today marks the 10th Anniversary of the publication of Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. For many, Twilight was the book that got them into reading, or into reading again, and sparked a revolution in the world of Young Adult, and later adult romance, books. We tip your hat to you, Stephenie, and thank you for this gender-bent version of Twilight, Life and Death. Will there be more to come? We don't know. Do we want there to be? Also, still on the fence. See all the other Twilight content at Heroes and Heartbreakers, and check out Molly McAdams post on 5 authors she wanted more from—which had included Meyer!—or Rachel Hyland's defense of Twilight's underlying message of faith.
*We don't know how long these deals will last, so get them before they're gone!
