All of What’s New in Eloisa’s World!
For the most up-to-date info about the newest book, what’s coming soon, and more, this page has it all.
Kirkus said that Eloisa “takes a complicated conflict and infuses it with emotional depth, then heightens it with sexual tension, loss, misunderstanding, pride, and class bias with an interesting twist.” We’re celebrating at Eloisa Central—and we hope you’ll preorder this “bright, delightful read!”
Seven Minutes in Heaven doesn’t release until January 31, 2017, but if you’re like us here at Team Eloisa, you’re already counting down the days. We would be hugely grateful if you could help us get the word out—preorders in particular have a huge impact, not only on the print run, but on how strongly Eloisa’s publisher will support the book.
The best way to help is to preorder your personalized signed copy in hardback or paperback from Book Culture. Or, if you’re a digital reader, preorder from Kindle, Nook, iBooks, GooglePlay or Kobo. Be sure to save your confirmation (take a screen shot, or file the email). We’re putting together the best prezzie ever for everyone who preorders. We know you’re going to love it!
But could we also beg you to help by adding Seven Minutes to your Goodreads shelf? Or follow Eloisa on Amazon, Goodreads, or BookBub —a bonus is that these distributors will let you know whenever there’s a sale on one of Eloisa’s books. Another big help is if you’re active on Eloisa’s Facebook page. Whenever you “like” posts and share a favorite, it makes Eloisa a lot more visible.
She appreciates it, and so do we!
RT Book Reviews just gave A Gentleman Never Tells 4 1/2 stars and a Top Pick! Here’s our favorite part of the review: “It’s smart and sexy while being short and snappy. James is a storyteller extraordinaire who lets us believe in second chances and happily-ever-afters.” And you can still get your own copy for only $0.99! (The price will go to $1.99, the price of the rest of Eloisa’s novellas, soon.)
Of course, Eloisa’s heroines are always witty as well as bling-y — and we were happy to see that The Booklist Reader included My American Duchess in their Witty Heroines, Steamy Romance Novels article along with lots of other great romances.
Are you a long-time reader of Eloisa? Want to know how much help her readers have given her over the years—figuring out plots and characters? Eloisa talked to Bustle all about her readers and how they’ve helped shape characters, especially Josie, from Pleasure for Pleasure, whose story was radically changed by what readers told her about their own lives. You can read the article here—and after this, don’t forget to let Eloisa know about your own thoughts, especially early in a new series!
Eloisa sends a huge thank you to everyone who has read her new novella, A Gentleman Never Tells! We’re thrilled to share the news that A Gentleman Never Tells has debuted at #5 on the New York Times bestseller list. If you’ve read the story and could take a moment to leave a review on Amazon or Goodreads, it would be wonderful!
Everything the aspiring historical romance writer needs is in Eloisa’s Essex Sisters Companion Guide for only $1.99: Eloisa chronicles the publishing process from conception to publication including editing, copyediting, marketing, and covers. The historical essays about clothing, newspapers, and the Regency world at large are invaluable tools for writing your own historical! You’ll have an honest glimpse into the complete publishing process—including the 150 page ending that her editor at the time deemed too dark for publication.
