I wanted to make a quick note regarding the client website listed along the right side of the blog. Adding these links is requiring a tedious amount of coding, and so I am slowly adding all of our wonderful agency authors, but it's taking a bit of time. If your name is missing-or if you don't yet see your best friend-please don't despair. I'll have the rest of the listings up shortly.

And now another wonderful upcoming book I'd like to mention to all of you. Beverly Brandt, who writes romantic comedy for St. Martins and Berkley, has her first trade paperback publishing later this summer. As a Southerner, I can attest that she absolutely nails the southern voice in this novel-it reminded me very much of the small Georgia town where I live.

How great is this cover above? I think Beverly's book is going to fly off the shelves! Especially when you read about it below.

Georgia Elliott grew up in a small Gulf town full of Southern charm-and a super-efficient grapevine. So the few secrets she's managed to keep are precious, including that she invented TV's hottest new kitchen gadget, the Miracle Chef. A second-generation beauty queen, Georgia turns to women she knows she can trust to keep her secret from her controlling society Mama: the Tiara Club. All the members are veterans of the pageant circuit, but they've just admitted one woman who doesn't fit in-a Yankee who's never taped her breasts or smeared glue on her butt to wow the judges. And this year the Tiara Club is determined to help this outsider win the coveted Shrimp Queen crown. Add in an impending wedding and the Club's attempts to keep Georgia's secret, and the Tiara Club have all they can do to hold on to their poise, their friendships, and their sense of humor.

Deidre, I picked up the VERY LAST COPY of The Tiara Club last night from our local indie book store.

This is actually a pretty big deal, because Square Books, although a great bookstore, is a bit snobby when it comes to Romance. They do carry quite a bit of chick-lit, but Romance--not so much. And the fact that The Tiara Club was prominently featured on the front display table with other southern authors, is a very big thing. :)
