The Lasaran News, Favorite Quote & Giveaway

Happy Friday! I hope you and your loved ones and friends are safe and well. I've been busily preparing for the release of The Lasaran and penning posts for my blog tour. (I think the Character Interview will make you laugh. Sheldon was his usual outrageous self.) I admit it feels weird going about business as usual when so much is happening. But if you're like me, you could use a distraction. So hopefully I can provide you with one. 😊

I have awesome news! The Lasaran is now available for pre-order on Audible. Woohoo!! I was so distracted by Sheldon that I didn't even realize it had popped up on Audible until a Facebook friend tagged me in a post. (Thank you, Debbie B.!) And it's already #2 on the Science Fiction Romance Bestseller List! You all rock!!

Less than three weeks to go until the big release!! I'm celebrating with another giveaway on Facebook and will choose a winner tonight (Friday night). I plan to have a giveaway every Tuesday leading up to and including release week, so keep an eye out for them. 😉

I received a lot of comments, messages, and emails this week from readers who were dismayed that they were just hearing that I have a new book releasing this month. Some have asked what they can do to ensure they don't miss any releases in the future, so here are some things you can do:

1—If you aren't already a subscriber, you can subscribe to my blog so book news will be delivered right to your inbox. 

2—You can follow me on BookBub. I almost always have them send Pre-Order and New Release alerts for my books.

3—You can follow me on Amazon. Amazon will send you an email alerting you to new releases, but sometimes there's a delay of a week or two.

4—You can join my Dianne Duvall Books Group if you're on Facebook. I always share book news in the group and just plain enjoy hanging out in there. 😊

Look what I have: some lovely new swag. *whispers in a Gollum-like voice* My precious. 😀 I intended to wait longer to open the boxes and take it all out because this COVID19 thing has brought out my inner Adrian Monk. But I couldn't wait. I love it!! I even bought stickers this time. (That's the square thing in the front.) I'm pretty sure some of those will soon adorn my electronic devices. LOL.

It's time once more for Favorite Quote Friday! I loved your reactions to the quote in my last post. Poor Chris. And Seth. LOL. This week, I thought I'd share a playful moment from The Lasaran that features Taelon and Lisa, the hero and heroine.

“Your face is pink again.”

The heat in her cheeks intensified. “I know. I can’t help it. As I said, I’m not an exhibitionist. And we’re both sitting here naked.”

His smile turned roguish. “I like you naked.”

She laughed. “Ditto.”

“I’m beginning to understand the definition of that word,” he said on a laugh.

Stay safe and well!
