12/30 Not Quite New Year’s Eve Facebook Party

Tessa Dare. Maisey Yates. Miranda Neville. Jeffe Kennedy. Megan Mulry. And me. All in one place! Mark your calendars for 12/30/14 from 7-9 ET/4-6 PT for a Not Quite New Year’s Eve Facebook Party!

There are so many great books to celebrate as the year draws to a close. Jeffe Kennedy released Under His Touch, the next book in her Falling Under series. Megan Mulry’s Roulette features a whirl of glitz, glamour, and a sexy international playboy hero. Maisey Yates’ 9th Chatsfield book came out – Sheikh’s Desert Duty. And Miranda Neville and Tessa Dare, two of the most talented writers of historical romance, both have new books out on December 30th! Miranda released the fabulously titled The Duke of Dark Desires, and Tessa’s heroine must decide whether or not to Say Yes to the Marquess. Talk about saving the best for last!

There’s something for everyone at this party – historical, contemporary, erotic, sheikhs and playboys, a duke and a marquess, a governess, settings ranging from the desert to the boardroom, and back in time to Regency England – including a chance to win an ARC of my March, 2015 release The List. Plan to stop by and comment to be entered to win a prize from each author, and a grand prize from all of us! I hope to see you there!

Anne’s Bday Bash!

Today is my birthday, and in the spirit of celebrating good times with good friends, the fabulous and talented Jeffe Kennedy is hosting a social media birthday bash for me!


Jeffe and I have releases a week apart, and my birthday falls smack in the middle. Rogue’s Paradise, book 3 in her Covenant of Thorns trilogy – which completes the trilogy for the first book Jeffe published – yay! - came out on Monday, and Afternoon Delight, first in my new IRRESISTIBLE series comes out on September 16. All of these things are worth celebrating, a release that brings closure to a series, the kick-off book in a new series, me turning *mumble mumble* a year older, friends and fun and, of course, books! Lots and lots of books.

The details, from Jeffe’s blog:

Therefore, I propose a game. For the next 24 hours, from midnight Central US time on September 11 up until the hands of the clock switch over to September 12, I want you to give Anne gifts.

Virtual ones.

Send her pictures of what you think she’d love. Tweet them to us, at@jeffekennedy and/or @annecalhoun – be sure to use the hashtag #annebday. Or paste them to our Facebook pages! Stick that #annebday hashtag on there and put them onhttps://www.facebook.com/Author.Jeffe.Kennedy and/or https://www.facebook.com/anne.calhoun. We’ll be picking our favorites, too, and sharing them. Be creative! Have FUN!

Send me pictures of things you think I’d love, and send me pictures of things YOU love. And, because nothing would make me happier than to give away presents on my birthday, we’re giving away books! Jeffe’s offering two digital copies of Afternoon Delight and I’m thrilled to give two lucky winners Rogue’s Paradise. International is okay, since these are digital…


We’re also giving away each other’s backlists. Watch our Facebook and Twitter feeds – especially that #annebday hashtag – for flash giveaways from us and our friends. Jeffe also claims to have dancing boys, but I don’t know anything about that. 😉

I’m so excited to celebrate my birthday with friends, readers, and readers who’ve become friends. Watch #annebday for giveaways, chatter, and lots of fun. I hope you’ll join the party!

Announcing…(drum roll please…) Anne’s Newsletter

Facebook curates your feed. Twitter’s thinking about it. The best way to be confident you’ll get the latest — announcements and news about my upcoming releases, events, and behind-the-scenes information about my books — is to sign up for my newsletter: Get Curious. Go Deep. 

I’m still working out details about frequency and content, but I promise you this:

  • Newsletters will be emailed to you no more than monthly.
  • Each issue will include exclusive content about the book I’m working on, a Q&A section, sneak peeks into upcoming releases, recommended reads, and contests/prizes open to newsletter recipients only.

I’m taking questions now for the first issue! Post them in the comments or drop me a line at anne (at) annecalhoun (dot) com. The winning question will get a copy of AFTERNOON DELIGHT, the first book in the Irresistible stories (out Sept 16th!). If you’d like to sign up, the form is on the top right corner of my blog; your email will never be shared, and the list is completely private. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!

JADED Releases Tomorrow (Feb 4)

Wheee! JADED, the second book in the Walkers Ford series releases tomorrow, Feb 4. I couldn’t be more excited! The fabulous Kat Latham included JADED in her February Contemporaries to Covet list, and she’s giving away a $10 gift card to one person who comments on the post.
