New Things!

Mainly, a new series! I knoiw, PLEASURE just came out and you might still be trying to catch up on your Shadowdwellers, but I am very excited about the new The Gatherers series so I have to share. It's not related to the Nightwalkers world at all, which made me happy on a creative level because I was ready for a departure. Sort of like taking a vacation. Besides, I never want to become old hat or predictable.

That's not to say I don't love my Nightwalkers. I do! In fact I am currently writing book six of the NIGHTWALKERS series and I have plans to write book four of the SHADOWDWELLERS series as well. After all, we have to see what happens to Ruth, what happens for our strong-willed Jasmine, and what of Malaya's brother Tristan? I hope to answer all those questions in my next coming projects. But first you will meet THE GATHERERS and their extra-ordinary world and then I dip into the world of science fiction with a series from Ballentine publishing.

Have I shown you the cover for HUNTING JULIAN? This is book 1 in THE GATHERERS series.
I just got the ARCS for it (Advanced Reader Copies) and will be giving them away at my event in October to some lucky attendees! I will also have a ton of other books from other paranormal authors. Those who are attending the event are going to walk away with bunches and bunches of goodies! Wait til you see the surprise I have for the pajama party!

But back to HUNTING JULIAN. Want to read the back cover copy? Here goes!

Jacquelyn Frank, New York Times bestselling author of the Shadowdwellers series, invites readers into a dazzling new world of unstoppable desire and danger.

As an Gatherer for his colony, Julian Sawyer travels to Earth to bring back the Chosen—women who possess energy potent enough to help revitalize his people. The stunning, silver-clad beauty who strides into his club one night radiates a sensual magnetism unlike any he’s encountered, and Julian realizes that Asia Callahan is not just Chosen, she is his kindra: his one true mate.

For months, Asia has tracked the beautiful and mysterious Julian across the country, convinced that he’s behind the disappearance of her sister and a dozen other women. She’s prepared to believe he’s a ruthless killer, but when she presents herself as bait, she discovers that the truth is far more shocking. Taken to a strange, hazardous realm she never knew existed, Asia will face the ultimate choice—between abandoning the life she’s always known, and forsaking a passion as dangerous as it is powerful.

So? What do you think? Let me know and I'll give away an ARC to one lucky commenter on this blog. :) Otherwise, I'd say you are all up to date on what I'm up to. Oh! I am also attending Lora Leigh's RAW weekend in September. That promises to be a lot of fun! This year I may even be healthy enough to dance!

I wanted to take a moment to thank all of my loyal readers. Thanks to you I am #13 on the New York Times list with PLEASURE. Needless to say, my publisher is ecstatic to know the SHADOWDWELLERS series is a great success. I truly hope you are are enjoying Sagan's story and Malaya's story. For those of you who don't know, PLEASURE is a two for one book. Two stories in one book! Both are integral to one another and we simply needed to put them together for you. It smooths out the series perfectly.

Well, enough of my chatter for now. I will pick a winner for the ARC next month when I blog here again. If you hadn't noticed, I blog here around the fifth of each month. (I missed last month because I was on vacation!)

See you next month! (or sooner on my homepage blog at!)
Hugs and Kitties
Jacki Frank

I love the cover and the excerpt!

"Hunting Julian" sounds like a great read!

Congrats on making #13 on the New Yorks Time List for "Pleasure".

I've enjoyed following both series. Hunting Julian sounds great and I can't wait to start following this new series.

Just got my copy of Pleasure and can't wait to start reading it. Thanks for writing such awesome books.

Melissa said...

This new series sounds intriguing, Jacki! Can't wait to read it. I finished pleasure before lunch the day it was released. It was THAT GOOD! I saw some interesting possibilities for our friend Sabin's ladylove. I see her as an integral part of Ruth's demise. Can't wait!

Natasja said...

I love your other two series, so I cannot wait to read the novel in your new series.

RENEE said...

Wow! I am so excited to read this new series. It sounds full of suspence and action packed. And I love me some good suspense!

Ooh! I hope I'm one of those lucky winners at the Authors After Dark event in October! So what's the PJ party surprise???

And, please...some ideas for the masquerade ball. Are we talking like long ball gown type or anything goes? Or What?? I've never been to a masquerade ball before.

I'm SO looking forward to the party in October and praying for a copy of this new book...As much as I love suspense - I prefer it in my books...not waiting for them!!

Love ya, Jacki!

Hunting Julian sounds great!! Can't wait until it comes out :) said...

All I can say if WOW and can't wait until I can read more about Asia and Julian...sittin on the edge of my seat!

Asylumgirl said...

Sounds like a great series. It almost sounds at first like the women are being used, but my guess is that they can hold their own.

Hey Jacki!

Congrats on the NYT's list placement for "Pleasure!" That is so awesome. I can't wait for the new series, it sounds wonderful, but 1/5/10, seems like a long ways off, so I'm keeping my fingers' crossed for getting an ARC at the AAD event!

And yay for more Nightwalker and Shadowdweller books.

See you next month!

Amanda said...
