In the Romantic Times Book Reviews, April 2008, Issue #290, page 17, Quote "[Avon Senior Vice President/Publisher Liate Stehlik] brags a bit about some of the imprint's paranormal stars. "Lynsay Sands has arrived," she proclaims about the three-time New York Times bestseller; could October's Devil Of The Highlands be No. 4?" Unquote
This is in a full page article "Avon And Her Sisters" by Liz French & Faygie Levy who met with Avon/Harper Collins editors and publicists about some of their 2008 lineup of authors of various romance.
Well, we know that the release of Mortimer's book will come out first, with the historical coming out in 2009, which probably came about after this interview that touches on several of Avon's authors (many of them in some of our favorites list)and the different imprints and online ventures in the works.
Way to go, Lynsay!
I just love it when I see your name in print! wren
You made me curious to see what else I could find in the way of articles that mention Lynsay. This is what I found:
This link goes to a site where they mention Vampires Are Forever and includes a link to a letter written by Lynsay:
This is an interview by Lynsay dated March 11,2008:
The following is about writing humorous romances and, of course, Lynsay Sands is mentioned. Very briefly but the rest of the article is interesting and lists some other authors who use humor in their books:
And here is a great review of Vampire, Interrupted:
This is primarily about another author but there is a quote in there by Lynsay's agent about the increase in popularity of vampire novels:
Don't you love the internet? All this information right at my fingertips.
I agree. The internet is our friend. You can be amazed at what you can find.
And somethings you wished you didn't
I found an interview that I hadn't read before. Here it is:
Lynsay talks a little about where she comes up with some of her ideas and how some thoughts she had during A Bite to Remember led to The Accidental Vampire. Good stuff!
Just found another interview from Lynsay. This one is an old one (2005) but it has a lot of useful information about getting published if you are a writer.
I found this on Barnes and Nobles website. I never noticed that some of the books had Tabs where sometimes there is Meet the Writer information.
And here's another one:
I keep thinking I might find a hint or two in one of these interviews. Lynsay seems to plan out her books so far ahead, I hope that even in the old interviews, a gem might be found. Great interview but no hints.
Oh, well. At least by searching for and reading these articles, I'm passing the time while waiting for the next book.
