Hi Everyone,

As many of you know, my new historical romance, Enslaved is now available for direct order through Borders Bookstores or online through Independent Publishers Group. You can also pre-order the book at

The sequel to Vanquished, Enslaved is slated for worldwide release in October 2007. That said, about 2,500 copies of Enslaved shipped early and have already found their way onto bookstore shelves–and into eager readers’ hot little hands.

Sightings so far include Joseph-Beth Booksellers in Cincinnati, OH ( and Books-a-Million, Pinebrook Shopping Center on Airport Blvd., Mobile, Alabama. I’ve also heard from a ton of people who’ve ordered it through their local Borders store.

Do you have a copy of Enslaved? If so, I’d love, love, love to know where you got yours, be it a chain bookstore, an indy bookstore, a library or well… anywhere.

Over the summer months I’ll be building a list of “Early Enslaved Sightings” to track the progress of these renegade books. So if you could take two ticks (AKA moments) to post to this thread, you’ll be helping out by letting other readers know where they can find the book.

To reward “informants, ” I’ll be running a special “Get… Enslaved Sneak Peak End of Summer Contest” in addition to my regular monthly contest. The winner will be announced on September 1st. The prize will be a signed copy of Book #1 in my “Men of Roxbury House” trilogy, Vanquished, a signed cover flat of Enslaved as well as the winner’s pick of my backlist titles.

In the meantime…

Happy Summer Reading — and Sighting
