Now in Print: Back to Normal (squee)


Look!  I've already bent the corner!  It's a real book!

So in the midst of selecting faucets and bathtubs, deciding on hardwood vs. carpet, agonizing over the colors of the exterior of the new house (oh, the tears that have been shed over this alone!) I get an email from Loose Id, telling me that Back to Normal will be GOING TO PRINT.

I can now hold in my grubby little hands an actual dead-tree version of this book.  It's mind-boggling.  Even more boggling, there are quotes from reviews.

The print version of Back to Normal can be found at Amazon and at Barnes and Noble.

My new house. Not.

This mega-mansion is scheduled for completion two years from now.  It's currently being built in Missouri.

Here's what it will probably look like when it's done:

When I saw this, I immediately thought of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, and the lair they occupy in Connecticut or Massachusetts or where ever they are.  So, is it possible a new band of good bad boys is moving in in the Ozarks?

Love is beautiful in so many ways!

A little Sunday breather. Just relax for a few minutes, with a cool or hot beverage or whatnot, and enjoy.

2nd Annual Author Fan Letter Blog Crawl

  Kassa has organized the second annual crawl of thank you's to favorite authors.  
The entire list of participating bloggers is here.
You may or may not have jumped to my blog from Alpha Heroes.
Tomorrow be sure to visit my new friend, Cecile, at All I Want and More
(she has some looooovely pics up for 4th of July celebrating!).

On to my letter:

Dear J.L. Langley,

Thanks so much for your excellent books!  I have enjoyed all of them, and appreciate the fine quality of the writing.  I think my first Langley book was My Fair Captain, and it's no secret that Nate is one of the finest alpha males ever, or the Steamy McSteamiest of Heroes.  You did a great job combining the culture of the Regency period with science fiction.  I can't think of another author who does that.  Historical mores, dress and politics run side by side with a planet where men are born to love other men and build families with them.  An interstellar navy, an action-adventure mystery and some BDSM elements make this a win all around for me.  Not to mention the compromised virgin and a long-lost heir.  You weave these bits together so fluidly, and build the action masterfully.  You followed this up successfully with The Englor Affair, and I'm patiently waiting for The Regelence Rake.

Can you tell this is a favorite book of mine?

Your With or Without Series is also excellent despite being very different from the Sci-Regency books in that it takes place in a current day setting with werewolves as the main characters.  I particularly like With Caution.  Particularly the relationship between Remi and Jake.  Particularly that scene by the couch.  You know the one I mean.

Let's not forget the Ranch series as well as the Innamorati, proving you are just as good with cowboys as you are with werewolves and sci-fi Dukes and Princes.

All in all, you've given me hours of entertainment, pleasure (and a few stray tears).  Keep writing!

Best Regards,
