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.
—Rainbow Rowell's Fangirl spinoff novel, Carry On (which can be read as a standalone), isn't out until October, but BuzzFeed is already bringing us some great coverage. They sat down with Rowell to discuss the impact fandom and fan fiction have had on her own life and her writing as well as why she thinks “we've been using fiction and story to sort out our lives since always,” which I think many of us can relate to. Want more? Read Rowell's H&H guest post on the most satisfying love stories ever.
—Gearing up for Stephanie Laurens's next Cynster novel, A Match for Marcus Cynster? Bibliophilia, Please has an excerpt to further whet your appetite. Laurens's Cynster romances regularly end up on H&H lists on topics like Top Historical Sex Scenes and the 10 Regency Romances You Should Read. For all Cynsters all the time, read this take on the best books in the series.
—Game of Thrones is on notice with many of us right now (read our recap for more on why we're upset about Sansa's storyline), but I can never resist Peter Dinklage, who for Red Nose Day performed Game of Thrones: The Musical in tribute to all the characters who've died in the show so far. Only the teaser has been released for now, but it's a good one!
