RT Loves Ellen!

Ann and I are both big fans of RT Book Reviews, and we can’t wait to see everyone at the RT Booklovers Convention in Chicago next April. Until then, we’ll bask in the glow of these two back-to-back 4 1/2 Star Top Pick reviews!

For NIGHTFALL:

Writing as Ellen Connor, Ann Aguirre and Carrie Lofty join forces to create a chilling, post-apocalyptic series, Dark Age Dawning. Frighteningly intense in its depiction of the struggle to survive in a world run amok, there’s edge-of-your-seat thrills mingled with supernatural forces, giving rise to a dangerous and passionate story.

For MIDNIGHT, coming September 6:

The middle book in Connor’s (aka Ann Aguirre & Carrie Lofty) post-apocalyptic trilogy revisits the world three years after the initial horrific Change. Chris Welsh was a secondary player in the first novel, but it is his exploits that are now examined. The authors’ writing styles blend together seamlessly, bringing forth a dark tale of endurance that manages to hang on to a flame of hope. A bare-knuckle struggle for survival gives this intense story poignancy and a gritty realism.

Shall we root for a third fantastic review for DAYBREAK, due out in December? Hell yeah! Go Ellen, go!

Oh, and All About Romance dug NIGHTFALL too. This just in:

With Nightfall, Ellen Connor kicks off an apocalyptic romance trilogy which, if this first book is anything to go by, looks like quite the inspired collaboration. This book features unusual and vivid world building, paired with a good, steamy romance. In addition, the authors aren’t afraid to take risks in presenting a story of love and hope set against a truly dangerous, bleak world.

Decision Goodness

It’s been a big week for Ellen Connor.

In addition to our RT feature, we also can tell you that our books will be coming out in trade through Berkley Sensation. After much contemplation, it has been agreed that these are romances, albeit dark, dangerous, different, and action-packed. If you prefer your romance on the edgy side, if you like the Ava Gray books, then you will probably enjoy Ellen Connor too. If you lean toward liking sweet romances best, then these may not be for you.

NIGHTFALL has a tentative June 2011 release date, with MIDNIGHT and DAYBREAK to follow in September and December, but that’s not sure by any means. When that’s firmed up, we will certainly post an update.

Update

Hi everyone. We’ve been fielding inquiries, so here’s the scoop. The books will be Ace or Berkley, but editors Anne Sowards & Cindy Hwang are still deciding if it’s UF or paranormal romance. We’ll be happy in either shelf. But we just turned in revisions on NIGHTFALL that should prompt a decision on imprint and release dates very soon.

In an exciting turn of events, we’ve sold the “DARK AGE DAWNING” trilogy to Germany already. This is big news and we’re thrilled about it. Stay tuned for more news! Meanwhile, check out the new excerpt.
