THIEF OF SHADOWS Hits the NYT Bestseller List!

Thief of Shadows is out and it’s number 18 on the New York Times bestseller list! Thank you to everyone who made this possible by buying the book!

More lovely reviews have poured in for Thief of Shadows:

4 Stars
“Once you have finished reading this book, you will fully understand why Elizabeth Hoyt is considered to be one of today’s best writers of Regency Romances! BRAVA!”
— Detra Fitch, Huntress Reviews

and:

“Ms. Hoyt makes me laugh, makes me cry, and makes me fall in love with each couple. There is pure delight on each and every page! What more can you ask from an author? Thief of Shadows is another 5 star read from the stellar Elizabeth Hoyt!”
— Leslee from Night Owl Reviews

and:

“5/5
I feel like I’ve been waiting for this book for forever! After what felt like a lifetime, I have read, finished and loved Thief of Shadows!”
— Adria, Breath of Life Reviews

My lovely website designer, Vibeke Courtney from Dreamforge Media has put together an absolutely fabulous addition to my website: all new Maiden Lane pages. At the top of the navigation bar on my website, you can find the Maiden Lane tab. Click it and it opens a whole bunch of stuff, including:

  • and an Interactive Map of Georgian London

I hope that you’ll enjoy exploring the new Maiden Lane pages!

Finally, quite a few of my books are on sale this month:

  • And The Ice Princess is on sale in ebook (because it only comes in ebook) for $0.99.

Enjoy!

Audio Book News

Hoyt Manor is abloom with violet-purple crocuses–despite Darla‘s tendency to want to gallop through my flower garden. Hopefully when more things start sprouting she’ll stay out–although I’m not holding my breath. ;-)

I just sent back the galleys for Thief of Shadows. Whew! The galleys (printed pages that show the layout of the finished book) are the last step I have to go through to finish the book. It’s a lovely feeling to know that a book is finally all done. If you’re a reviewer, you should be getting an arc (Advanced Reader Copies) soon.

Meanwhile, I’m hard at work writing Lord of Darkness, the fifth book in the Maiden Lane series, which will be out February 2013. And! I’ve just heard that all three books in the Princes Trilogy: The Raven Prince, The Leopard Prince, and The Serpent Prince will soon be made into audio books, with a release date of February 2013 as well. This means all of my books will be available in audio book!

Finally, some website updates: Check out my Books of the Month for January and February, I’ve posted an article about Lad, the dog from Scandalous Desires, and I have a new Contest prize up for March if you haven’t already joined one of my newsletters.

Enjoy!
