TORMENTOR MINE release week is over, and I’m simply blown away by how awesome you guys are. The book already has over 200 reviews on Amazon (OMG!), and I’m in seventh heaven reading all of them, as well as the ones at iBooks, Goodreads, Nook, Kobo, Google Play, etc. I LOVE hearing what you guys think, and some of your reviews are so heartfelt they literally bring tears to my eyes. So THANK YOU. Not only that, but Tormentor Mine is officially a USA Today bestseller!! Thank you for loving Peter and Sara as much as I do, for pre-ordering and buying, for sharing about the book on social media and telling your friends about it, for reviewing and letting me know how much you love the story.
Okay, now on to the big question: when is OBSESSION MINE coming out? Unfortunately, I can’t give you the answer yet, because my very own Russian hubby (yes, Dima is Russian and has Peter’s sexy accent :)) is not allowing me to commit to a date and put up the pre-order until I’m further along in the book. He’s doing it for my sanity and for his, as well as for my health. It’s also so that I can release the book SOONER. Unlike some authors who need to have the pressure of deadlines, my muse clams up under stress, and I write slower, not faster, once a date is set.
So, here’s what I CAN tell you:
1) Barring total Armageddon (or its equivalent in my life), the book WILL come out this year. I know the iBooks pre-order (the only pre-order I’m allowed to set because of how easy it is to change) says March 2018, but that date will be moved up to earlier.
2) There will be a pre-order for Obsession Mine at all retailers. I will set it as soon as I have a release date, and I will announce it when I can be certain that I can meet the pre-order deadline without stress. I’ve never pushed back a release date, and I don’t intend to do that to you guys if I can help it.
3) The best way to learn when Obsession Mine comes out is to sign up for my newsletter here at annazaires.com. Just scroll up on this page, and you’ll see the subscription form. I will send out a pre-order announcement, a release-day email, and maybe some other reminders in between. Alternatively, you can keep an eye on my posts on social media. If you message me privately to ask about the release date, my response will be the same as my public one—that I can’t tell you the date yet—so please keep an eye out for an announcement. I will be making a lot of noise when I have the date and all the pre-order links, so I promise you won’t miss it :D.
The other question I’ve been getting is how many books will be in this series. Again, I can’t tell you at this point. Currently, I’m fluctuating between 2 and 3, and I won’t know for sure until I complete book 2. I’m a pantser (i.e. I write by the seat of my pants instead of outlining), so my stories often take turns I don’t expect when I start them. (I swear, I had no idea Peter would do that at the end!)
Again, thank you guys so, so much! You are the absolute best readers an author could wish for, and I’m beyond honored by your love and support.
