Bestselling novelist Nora Roberts, who with her husband, Bruce Wilder, owns Boonsboro, Maryland’s Turn the Page Bookstore, will be on hand at the store’s Nov. 3, 2012 book signing to sign copies of “The Perfect Hope,” book three in her “Inn BoonsBoro” trilogy. With Roberts for the Nov. 3 event will be writing colleagues Wendy Corsi Staub, Addison Fox, Sara Humphreys, Jill Archer, Katrina Shelley and S. A. Van.
“The Perfect Hope,” with its emphasis on the romance between Ryder Montgomery and Hope Beaumont, concludes the trilogy Roberts began in December 2011 with “The Next Always” and continued in May 2012 with “The Last Boyfriend.” Robert’s latest fictional work calls upon her real-life experience renovating Inn BoonsBoro, a bed-and-breakfast inn Roberts opened in 2009.
Thriller writer Wendy Corsi Staub concluded her “Live to Tell” trilogy with the September 2011 release of “Hell to Pay.” She has since begun a new “Nightwacher” series inspired by the 9/11 attacks. “Nightwatcher” and “Sleepwalker” were released in 2012; “Shadowkiller” is due out in 2013.
Staub also publishes romance novels using the pseudonym,Wendy Markham. These include the five-volume “Slightly” series as well standalone titles such as “The Best Gift” (2009).
Addison Fox, Sara Humphreys and Jill Archer have each written paranormal romances. Addison Fox released “Warrior Enchanted,” the fourth book in her “Sons of the Zodiac” series, in May 2012. Fox has also published the contemporary romance trilogy, “Alaska Nights,” which will end with the Nov. 6, 2012 release of “Come Fly With Me.”
Both Sara Humpreys and Jill Archer have recently begun their writing careers. Humphreys will release her first book, “Untamed,” on Nov. 1, 2012.”Untamed” begins Humpreys’ “Amoveo Legacy” series.
Jill Archer’s first novel, “Dark Light of Day,” which debuted Sept. 25, 2012, began her “Noon Onyx” series. It will be followed by “Fiery Edge of Steel” in May 2013.
Katrina Shelley departs from her contemporary romances with the July 2012 release, “Timeless Melody.” Her central character, Lyric Taylor, travels back in time from the present day to Sharpsburg, Md. just as the Battle of Antietam nears.
S. A. Van takes her “Counter” series heroine Jenna Reid on a search for Blackbeard’s treasure. The series debut novel “Counterplay” came out in April 2012 and will be followed by “Counteract.”
Turn the Page Bookstore has scheduled only one more book signing event for 2012. On Dec. 8 it will host the “Holiday in Boonsboro” signing.
