Hop on over for my rec’s on digital books from Maya Banks (erotic romance/2013), Keri Arthur (urban fantasy romance/2000), and Kristin Hannah (contemporary romance/women’s fiction hybrids/2000-2006). Did I like what I read this month? Check it out for yourself!

My monthly e-book reissues column for August just went online at Heroes & Heartbreakers. Hope you’ll find time to check out August 2013 New Reissues in Digital: Krentz, Gardner, Johansen, and More!

It begins:

Those of you looking to enter a digital way back machine will be happy this month. A couple of very early releases from Jayne Ann Krentz under her Stephanie James pseudonym are being reissued, as is an early book from Lisa Gardner when she wrote as Alicia Scott. You’ll also find an early Iris Johansen, and as with last month, I’ll tell you about the second Nikki & Michael books, Keri Arthur’s first series.

Series Finales: Finding the Happy Balance

Just online at Heroes & Heartbreakers, my newest article, which begins:

What did you think of the Seinfeld finale? What about the final episodes of The Sopranos and Lost? Do you worry about how Breaking Bad or Mad Men might end? It’s the same with romance series. Think about some of the series you’ve loved, and whether they ended on a high note or landed with a disappointing thud.

"Sometimes You Just Need a Good Cry: Unhappy Ever Afters in Books" Click thru to my new Heroes & Heartbreakers article.

Here’s how it starts:

I read JoJo Moyes’s Me Before You a couple of weeks ago, and after I finished explaining it to my husband, I asked him, “What would make an author write such a sad book?”

His response was, “Really…that’s your question? How about what would make you want to read such a sad book?”

I hope you’ll read the article in its entirety and comment there.
