So, as any bookworm, I have my favorite authors and if you follow me for a while, you already know that Ava March is my favorite author ever, haha! And, as it is, I follow her updates very closely – almost to the point of stalking her social media channels. I have it bad, haha!
Today is Ava’s birthday as an author – Bound by Deception, her first published book, was out of the oven exactly seven years ago. Coincidentally – or maybe not, fate is really funny sometimes – this morning I was re-reading this very same book during a free class and felt that I owned her a special post when I learned about the date – which was only an hour or two ago, haha!
As a faithtful fan, I’ve read all Ava’s available works to this date and I love them. Some more than others, but my first book from her was Bound by Deception, first read in 2012 (I was 17 then and had just found out about m/m historical romances), so today is a very special day for me too. And I’ve never stopped. I’ve read book after book, yearning for more, as I’ve never found a genre and a writer who understood my tastes so well. Each couple of Ava’s works is unique in their own ways and I fell for each one of them. I have my favorite couple and book, of couse, that would be All In With The Duke (review here!) and its couple, Max and Tristan, but I pin for every one of them and always get bubbly when they make cameo appearances on her other works – sometimes, it happens!
Moreover, I wanted to apologize to Ava, as I’ve been bothering her with tons of e-mails since I found her on Goodreads and she was always so sweet and understanding. I own her much of my profissionalism as a book reviewer now as well. When I told her I had started blogging, she was all cheers and tips and I can’t describe how happy I was and still am. I’ll never forget how hard I screamed when I learned that she was releasing a paperback version for The Bound Series (the series that contains Bond by Deception) and, again, when the book arrived at my home. I was so bold as to send her a picture of me holding the book. And again, when I purchased All In With The Duke, another paperback edition. Ava must have laughed hard at my happy-oh-so-psicotic-face in both pictures, haha! *blushes*
The nicest thing is that Ava is holding a giveaway to celebrate this birthday! You can win a copy of a book of hers of your choice, ebook or paperback editions! Of course I already signed in, haha! (You must be wondering why, since I have all her ebooks and books, right? Elementary, my dear reader. I still don’t have Sharp Love’s paperback edition, as the dollar is crazy in my country in the last few months and I’m cheering my ass off to win it on this giveaway, haha!). The giveaway is international and you can enter until septtember 30th, as the winners will be chosen on oct. 2nd ❤ For full information on how to enter, please visit Ava’s blog here.
But hold your horses, that’s not all! Ava has been working a lot and gave many good news to her readers this week!
Sharp Love, second volume in the Gambling on Love series, is now available as well in audiobook format and I will spoiler you and tell that the narrator’s voice is very sexy, haha! You can take a look and hear a piece of it here.
In the coming soon department, there are tons of news!
The London Legal series is going to be re-released on January of 2016 with new covers and some minor edits and Ava has already revealed just how yummy the new covers are!
Convincing Arthur (London Legal, #1)
Convincing Leopold (London Legal, #2)
Much better, right?! I have the old versions and Ava said that the edits are minimal, so unfortunately I don’t have a good excuse to buy them again I’m still hoping for a paperback edition with those hot covers, haha!
As I’m on the re-releasing news, earlier this year, Ava also re-released His Client, one of my favorite books of hers. As in the London Legal series, the edits were minimal and I also didn’t buy the new sexy cover edition… Don’t get me wrong, I like the old cover, but I loved the new one, haha!
And there’s more! Ava is working on two new books right now and they will be here in 2016ll! They are:
- To Kiss a Thief (part of the Brook Street series, if I understood correctly)
- Convincing the Secretary (London Legal, #3) [UPDATE: review here!]
There’s no much info in their official pages just yet, but I can tell you that both couples seem awesome from my e-mail exchanges with Ava ❤
See? I told you Ava was working hard, haha! And, to make things even better, Ava shared in her latest newsletter a deleted scene from Viscount’s Wager (review here!), third book in the Gambling On Love series! As there’s another deleted scene coming soon to her blog in October, I’ll make one post for both when the time arrives, okay? 🙂 I assure you the waiting is worth, though! The first scene was delicious and I can’t wait to see the second one!
Wow, that was a big post, haha! Anyway, I hope you got as excited as I am with so many good news, haha!
I’m working on a decent review for Bound by Deception, with my new journalist insight of things, so be prepared to see more posts about Ava over here, haha!
That’s it for now, thanks for reading and Happy Author Birthday again, Ava! ❤
