What a difference two years makes. Almost to the day two years ago I wrote a blog about authors, or author styles, I wished would come back to us readers. I wasn’t planning to revisit the blog, but as I was browsing the Overdrive website today I saw something that made my eyes pop: Laura London, aka Sharon and Tom Curtis, will be available on eBook on April 1st.
I’m so excited, I can barely contain myself. I didn’t love all their books, but each one is still a treasure. And maybe we can get up a petition so they’ll finally — FINALLY — write Cat’s book.
Yeah, two years makes a difference. I decided to go back and check up on some of the authors we’d mentioned, as well as a handful of other “old-timers” (forgive me, please):
- Laura London — They’re baaaaaaack! Or at least, they’re accessible.
- Carla Kelly — She still writes for Harlequin, and Cedar Fort has republished most, if not all, of her old Signet Regencies. Yup. That includes Reforming Lord Ragsdale.
- Theresa Weir — It looks like she’s writing New Adult right now.
- Maggie Osborne — She’s not writing any more, but her books are available as eBooks.
- Judith Ivory/Judy Cuevas — According to Anne Stuart two years ago, “she’s alive and well, just concentrating on being a grandmother.” Which is great news.
- Anne Stuart — Still going strong, despite ups and downs from what I can tell. She’s currently celebrating 40 years of publishing, which means 40 days of freebies, discounts, and lots and lots of blogging. Check it out and buy her books!
- Connie Brockway — She wrote the sequel to All Through the Night, called No Place for a Dame, released in December. Yay!
And yup, as readers commented two years ago, there are also plenty of amazing authors to read nowadays, as well as all the oldie goodies. So if it’s still sub-zero weather where you are (minus 4 Celsius in Toronto today), five days before April, here’s some good news to go to bed with.
