What's coming up in 2011

We have some exciting new features coming up this year.

First up, as you may have noticed in the right sidebar, January is dedicated to the launch of Mills & Boon's new Riva imprint, with four Riva authors in our Wednesday Spotlights. The year also kicks off with a contest: Kimberly Lang is offering one of her back list titles to a random commenter this week.

February is the turn of Embrace Books, a new romance imprint being launched by Salt Publishing, with Jane Holland at the helm. We are doubly proud to be hosting four of Embrace's launch authors here since they include not only some good Minxy friends but also our very own Sally Clements.

Starting this month, we'll also be running monthly themed polls, with plenty of mouth watering eye candy for you to vote on. Please drop by every month to view our nominees and to cast your votes. We really want to know which heroes you like the most. January's theme is Irish Hotties.

Another new feature we're introducing in 2011 is Ask An Editor. On your behalf, we will ask editors to spill the beans on what happens behind the scenes in publishing. Leave us a comment or drop us an email with your burning questions, and we'll ask one of our friendly editors to answer.

As our regular blog followers already know, a few of us Minxes have a serious addiction to The Vampire Diaries. To feed the craving, I'll be devoting five Monday Minx posts (starting mid January) to what we aspiring writers can learn from this series.

We'd love to hear your news and views. What would you like to see more of in 2011? Feel free to share any bright ideas with us!

Thanks, Rach & Sutton. We're all very excited :-)

Rachel Lyndhurst said...

In danger of getting a little over excited. Can't wait, hate waiting. *Pained look*

Love the Minxes!
