First Sneak Peek of Wilde in Love!

Eloisa’s publisher is happily sharing the first three chapters of Wilde in Love! But it’s only available for a limited time, until June 29. It’s super easy to claim—and Team Eloisa wants you to know that they think Eloisa’s written her most amazing hero yet! Read an excerpt before the reviewers get ahold of it!

Eloisa is All Over New York City This Week!

Most exciting: she’s signing advance copies of Wilde in Love at BookExpo on 6/3, 3:00-3:30pm, Table 14!

If you aren’t a bookseller, how about coming along to see Eloisa with Julia Quinn, Sarah Maclean, and Maya Rodale on 5/30 at the Strand Bookstore, 7-8pm? She’d love to see you and she’ll have copies of her luscious recipe cards to give away!

Are you a writer? You can still sign up for Eloisa’s classes at Rutgers University on 6/3! She’s speaking at 2:00 and 4:10pm, and she’ll be giving all her writing students not just great advice, but Eloisa James journals!

Entertainment Weekly Loves Eloisa’s New Cover!

Entertainment Weekly was so excited by the cover of Wilde in Love that they made it #1 in a spread of their favorite romance novel covers! Lucky Eloisa — they included Pleasure for Pleasure as well!

Did you know that Eloisa takes a ballroom dance class with her husband AND her two kids every week? She and her friend Damon Suede did a mamba at the Barbara Vey Weekend!

Are you anywhere near New York City? Eloisa and Julia Quinn will be on a panel with Sarah MacLean & Maya Rodale in late May. Eloisa and Julia will also be attending the Historical Romance Retreat together this Fall in Spokane, Washington. (And so will Eloisa’s husband — guess who’s going to be dancing away the night in the ballroom??) Plus, if you’re going to BEA in June, Eloisa is signing ARCs of Wilde in Love! All details are on Eloisa’s Events page.

Speaking of Julia Quinn… did you know she and Eloisa put each other’s characters into their own books a few years ago? Readers loved it!

Have You Read Eloisa’s Very First Book? Want a Signed Copy?

Water Street Books is an adorable little bookstore in Williamstown, MA and right now they have signed copies of Eloisa’s very first trilogy, Potent Pleasures, Midnight Pleasures and Enchanting Pleasures. They also have signed copies of her memoir about living in Paris—Paris in Love—as well as her latest novel, Seven Minutes in Heaven. They even have a few sets of the gorgeous recipe cards Eloisa has been handing out at her appearances! Why not treat yourself — or give a wonderful present to a friend? You can call 413-458-8071 or email to place an order.

The beautiful cover for Wilde in Love was just released. The only thing more beautiful is the stunning stepback! Eloisa is particularly proud because she was at the shoot, watching the models laughing with each other, and asked for a joyous shot. It’s a new look in stepbacks, and we love it so much that we made space for it on the website. We know you’re going to love it too!

As always, if you loved signed books and want a copy of Wilde in Love (the gorgeous stepback, alas, won’t appear in the e-book), you can order from Eloisa’s next-door indy bookstore, Book Culture. They’ll have signed hardcover and paperback copies, and you can specify whatever greeting you’d like Eloisa to write in the book.

Wilde in Love Has a Cover!

BEAUTIFUL! Here it is, the cover for Wilde in Love!!

Visit Eloisa’s website to see the stunning stepback and watch a video of the photo shoot. Honestly, we all love it so mu​ch. The models had great chemistry and it really shows through in the final cover. Hop over to Eloisa’s Facebook page and let her know what you think of the cover.

EVENT! Eloisa is heading to Wisconsin this week…

If you are in the Milwaukee, WI area, the Barbara Vey Reader Appreciation Week-end is a fun-filled three day event featuring 60 authors! Several activities are free and open to the public, including a book signing on Saturday at 3:30pm. Eloisa hopes you’ll stop by — she’ll be handing out sets of her fabulous recipe cards at the signing! You can find a complete list of activities on the event website.
