Dear Book Lovers,

It's been a busy but exciting month as we get ready to open registration for the RT Booklovers Convention in Dallas, May 12-17 — which is very, very close to completion and should be live by October 1. We have a 900-room block at the Hyatt, but this year you will have to register for the convention before you get a link to reserve your room. There will NOT be an overflow hotel, so if you are planning on attending I suggest you register early to ensure a room at the Hyatt at the convention rate of $129 for a single.

More excitement going on this month at RT: After being on Bergen Street for more than 25 years, we are packing up and getting ready to move to our new office in historic Downtown Brooklyn, very close to the Brooklyn Bridge! It's a landmark building built in 1898 which was headquarters for the then growing New York and New Jersey Telephone and Telegraph Company that served New York, New Jersey, Long Island and Staten Island at a very exciting time in our history.

Our office is on the 7th floor and has huge, amazing floor-to-ceiling arched windows. We are restoring the space with mindful touches like grinding down the floor to its original Terrazzo finish, commonly used at that time. If you are ever in Brooklyn, please do come visit us at 81 Willoughby Street. We’d love to show you around.

Now onto the new issue, which you will already have received if you subscribe to the digital edition. The print edition in the mail so you should be receiving it within a week.

One of our favorite authors is on the cover for November. Jill Shalvis wraps up her Lucky Harbor series for Grand Central with three back-to-back, full-length novels, the last of which is ONE IN A MILLIONIT’S IN HIS KISS was released in early September, and HE’S SO FINE will be out September 30. According to Senior Contributor Lauren Spielberg's article, a bonus Lucky Harbor novella, "Merry Christmas, Baby" will be out for the holidays. Jill is looking forward to meeting fans in Dallas next year and invites you to attend the Big Fun in a Small Town Reader Event she is co-hosting along with Brenda Novak, Sheila Roberts and Nancy Naigle!

Rose Caraway, who hosts The Sexy Librarian Blog-cast, offers insight into the audiobook world with advice for what it takes to be successful in this flourishing market. Also look for an article written by Lori Wilde who tells us about her journey as a writer and how it brought her to the fictitious town of Twilight, modeled after her real-life hometown of Granbury, Texas. To celebrate her November release, CHRISTMAS AT TWILIGHT, the author will host a Twilight, Texas Town Takeover and Christmas celebration in Granbury December 6 - 7. Go to for more information.

Carly Phillips candidly discusses her decision to self-publish after being traditionally published for 15 years and talks about her self-pubbed series, which began last November. Look for her all of the books in the Dare series — Dare to Love, Dare to Desire, Dare to Submit and DARE TO SURRENDER — on her website,

Fans of Brenda Novak are in for a real treat with two back-to-back releases that couldn't be more different but are equally wonderful romances. A MATTER OF GRAVE CONCERN, published by Montlake, is set in 19th century England and based on an eerie truth about body snatchers stealing corpses which would then be sold to medical schools. In true Novak style, the author mesmerizes us with impeccable research sharing all the historic details — all this drama and suspense with a heart-stopping romance woven in. And THE HEART OF CHRISTMAS takes us back to Whiskey Creek for another fun-filled heartwarming romance just in time for the holidays.

Senior Editor Regina Small's Q&A with Maya Banks talks about her new romantic suspense series that launches in November. Slow Burn book one, KEEP ME SAFE, earns Banks a 4.5 star review and sets the stage for another blockbuster series. The article reveals the genesis of this book that was rattling in the author’s head for five years and the joy it brought her to see it published. You can meet Maya in Dallas next May at the RT Convention, so bring your questions!

Janet Evanovich and co-author Lee Goldberg are also back in November with another Fox and O’Hare novel titled, The Job. This unlikely duo chatted with reviewer and contributor Jeff Ayers about their happenstance collaboration and how much fun they are having with it.

Last, but not least, there's a short but revealing Q&A with YA author Julie Kagawa who tells editor Elissa Petruzzi why she's all about dragons.

Happy fall and happy reading,
