The blog is moving.
From here on out, all posts will be made directly at www.angiestanton.com.
I hope you’ll come on over and check things out. I’ll be posting more often as there’s lots of fun news coming up.
Two years ago, this month, I indie published Rock and a Hard Place. So many wonderful things have happened since then, including three more books. Readers found Rock and a Hard Place and made it a best seller. Today I am awaiting the book’s re-release by HarperCollins Teen. It will be officially out September 24th. It has a shiny new cover and has been polished up to make it even better.
So, please celebrate with me and enter to win one of five autographed books or one of ten e-books.
If you have the time, I’d love for you to like my author page at: www.facebook.com/AngieStantonAuthor.
For those of you wondering what I’m working on next, I’m happy to share with you that my next book is titled Royally Lost. As of now, the release date isn’t until next fall, so you’ll have to be patient. And after that will be the third book in the Jamieson Collection. Readers will finally get to see what happens when Garrett Jamieson falls in love.
Check out the inital cover and the new cover! Both great!
Last year I was in Prague and came across this bridge covered with locks. Our tour guide explained that they are called Love Locks. Of course, I knew immediately that I wanted to include Love Locks in my next book, which I affectionately refer to as my Royal book. It involves an American girl on vacation with her family to Europe, and you guessed it, she meets someone royal. That’s all I’ll say about that for now, but you can expect lots of teasers when the release grows near.
Here’s how it works. People write their names or initial on a lock, secure it to the railing and throw the key into the canal. The legend goes that if a lock is placed by two people in love, their love will be forever locked.
I’ve done a little bit of research on Love Locks, also referred to as Love Padlocks, and it turns out they appear in locations all over Europe. Some of the locations include Rome, Paris, Cologne, Florence and Dublin. In some cities there are great controversies over whether or not to remove them, as some consider the myriad of locks an eye sore. But to me, they are a romantic gesture of love.
So when that Royal books comes out, you can look forward to a romantic scene over the Vltava in Prague.
