We interrupt our regularly scheduled programming


Normally, on Mondays, we’d have an interview here with one of the Carina Press team members, but I had to interrupt our regular blog content to share some really exciting news with you.

I’ve tried to write and rewrite this post several times, and, well, it seems the best way to tell you is to just announce it…

I’m so absolutely, unbelievably, freakin’ bouncing-off-the-walls pleased to announce that Shannon Stacey’s trilogy of books Exclusively Yours, Undeniably Yours and Yours by Design will be appearing in mass market print via the Harlequin HQN imprint in January, February and March 2012 respectively.

Seriously, my stomach is jumping just typing this and I’ve known since last Tuesday. I’m excited for Shannon, because the work she put into writing, editing and promoting these books was outstanding, and for the Carina Press team as a whole. It’s hard to believe how much we’ve accomplished in the last 9, going on 10, months of publishing books.  Less than a year! I am so proud of how hard everyone has worked, from the authors and editors, the copy editors and cover artists, to the behind-the-scenes team members we’ve been showcasing on Mondays,  to the people you may never hear about who work in the background for us, to get us to this point. Thank you to everyone who’s shown faith in us from the beginning (especially those authors who’ve trusted their work to us). And I know (oh yes, I know) there are more good things and announcements to come.

Last, a major thank you to all of you readers for your tremendous support of Carina Press and these Shannon Stacey books in particular. It’s thanks to your interest that we’re taking this next step!

Excuse me while I step out of my professional  for a moment and just say…

  18. Thank you, everybody! Have I mentioned how much I adore and appreciate the Carina Press team?

    I’m outrageously excited! And I’m using more than my share of exclamation marks today!!! I felt bad when Angie called because I get very quiet when I’m processing news and she had to yell at me. “ARE YOU EXCITED?”

    I’ve been buying many of my new books in e because I am out of space on my bookshelves. But even though I have this series in e (well, except Yours by Design obviously), I will also buy the pb.

    I figure if I can justify buying all the In Death books and other faves in e even though I have them in print, I can justify doing the reverse, too.

    Congrats Shannon and everyone at Carina.

  22. Janni Nell says:

    Wonderful news! Congrats, Shannon!! Yay you!!!

  23. Rita Oberlies says:

    Love those Kowalski men…looking forward to seeing them in paperback! Congratulations Shannon!!!

  24. Bev Stephans says:

    First of all, Congratlations to Shannon. You definitely deserve the honor of seeing your books in print.

    Second, I want to congratulate Angela and the great job she has done at Carina Press.

    Third, I want to say that print books are still my favorite way to read. I know, I know, I’m a Luddite! I always have trouble downloading books from your site. I’m probably the only one so just disregard my bitching.

    Congratulationa again Shan!!!

  25. Brian says:

    Congrats. I have both the e and audio of the first two and thought they were great. I hope the ebooks will still be available DRM free through Carina and won’t going ‘out of print’ and moving to HQN DRM’d versions.

    Mass Market Paperbacks of Doom!

  26. azteclady says:

    Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! :grin: this is awesome news indeed–congratulations, Ms Stacey!

  27. Rhonda Stapleton says:

    I am SO EXCITED!!! This news is fantastic. :D

    Brian–as far as I know the ebooks will still be available, and on Carina.

  28. Jan says:

    Congratulations to Shannon, her books are well worthy of print editions!

    Also congratulations to the team at Carina, I’ve mentiond it on fb before, but your books are beautifully produced. The best I’ve read for their lack of blank pages, typos etc.

    You and your authors deserve all the sucess you get and more, brilliant authors and well produced books has got to be a recipe for sucess.
