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.)
RT didn’t neglect Eloisa’s upcoming Seven Minutes in Heaven either! Check out their cover breakdown—they’re “envious of all that bling.” Us too, RT, us too!
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!
Bustle just revealed the gorgeous cover for Seven Minutes in Heaven! I was able to have a lot of input for this cover — I even chose the cover model! It’s very dear to me and I love it. Stop by Facebook and let me know what you think.
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.
“A Gentleman Never Tells,” a brand new novella, is available in eBook now! Make sure to order so that you have one of Eloisa’s giddiest, sexiest novellas ever. All About Romance called it “witty and delightful” and gave it Desert Island Keeper status!
Want another short, fun read? There’s a brand new novella, “A Midsummer Night’s Disgrace” in her Essex Sisters Companion. That’s not to mention all the fun fashion facts from the time.
Reader favorites Josie and Mayne show up in both novellas! And at only $0.99 and $1.99 respectively, they’re a fantastic bargain (and frankly, they won’t stay that way. Avon will raise the price of Gentleman within a few weeks of pub date).
Eloisa’s alternate ending to Kiss Me, Annabel is throwing fans of the Essex Sisters into a tizzy! Some readers love the alternate ending—“Finally Annabel as she was intended”—but others think it’s way too dark! Where will you fall? Get your copy of the Companion now and read the alternate ending as well as a brand new novella, published nowhere else!
Don’t miss Eloisa’s new novella, “A Midsummer Night’s Disgrace,” a fresh, sexy story about a young lady who rebels against convention, dresses as she likes—and flirts with a gorgeous musician!
But the Companion has much more than the novella inside. Do you love history? You’ll find a wealth of historical knowledge on fashion, horses and the theatre! Plus you’ll love reading Eloisa’s original notes as she was writing the Essex Series, along with deleted scenes and extra chapters. Most exciting of all—a 100 page alternate ending to Kiss Me, Annabel!
For now, the Companion is only available digitally for just $1.99. You can order from Kindle, Nook, Kobo, iBooks.
