Dear LoveLetter Magazine

Dear LoveLetter Magazine,

This year’s LLC experience has been one of my highlights in 2012 and I want to thank you for all your passion and the effort it takes to organize such an event. It was beyond my wildest dreams. When one of your organizers and I had a conversation I was encouraged to leave a card on the board with authors I would love to see in the future. I know I wrote down a few but when I got home I stood in front of my bookcases and I cursed my faltering memory because I forgot some of my most beloved authors.

I got in to a conversation with one of my friends, Pearl, about which authors I would love to see at the next LLC and that’s when it hit me. Instead of sending you an e-mail I thought it would be nice to send you a letter in which I could convey my author wishlist. God knows, I'm not a person who ever does short and to the point!

I will personally bake you all triple chocolate brownies if one or more...prefably more *wink* of these authors show up next year;

Kresley Cole – do I need to explain it? The Wroth brothers, hawt Lykea, humorous and fierce Valkyrie, wicked witches, Nucking Futs Nïx. If you can get her over to Germany a squee around the world will be heard originating from my little town!

C.L. Wilson – This woman’s imagination rocked the world of many a reader, including mine. She gave us; ’ Ver reisa ku’chae. Kem surah, shei’tani.’ And from there she took ‘epic romance’ to a whole other level with Rain Tairen Soul and Ellysetta Baristani. If this doesn’t convince you…she gave us spirit smexing!! I rest my case!

Anne Bishop - Like, C.L. Wilson this author effortless draws you into a world where characters touched my heart. I would be shocked if she wasn’t translated in German. Shocked, I tell ya!!! I would go weak in the knees to meet the woman who gave voice to Daemon and Jaenelle along with Saetan and Lucivar.

Tiffany Reisz – Please, PLEASE, tell me this author is on the translation list for this year?! This author needs to come to the LLC. Not only is she an intriguing author but let me introduce you to the awe-to-the-some Nora. Her leading lady in ‘The Original Sinners’ series. She rocks the sexy with confidence and attitude!! And we must talk Søren. He will rock your world with his edgy persona!

Delilah Marvelle – This author made me want a grandmother who was a courtesan too! I mean, a school of seduction for gentlemen. Yeah this pitch hooked me and I love the way she brings me to another time! She also has a sex thru history blog. Who said history was boring. Not me ;) Wouldn’t it be fantastic if she did a panel on sex thru history? Who wants to attend that, say I *grin*

Joey W Hill – The BDSM this author gives the reader is full of emotion and dark passions. Her vampires, angels and mermaids are characters whom explode of the pages and never left my reading loving heart. You want erotic romance authors at the LLC next year, she is one of the mistresses to go to!! I can’t even describe my anticipated reaction if I get to meet her. She has touched my heart in the most personal of ways.

Karen Marie Moning – She was one of my first loves as I began reading in English. The MacKeltars and Barrons…do I need to tell you ladies anything else? We could perhaps have a highlander in kilt walking around at the LLC. For promotional purposes of course. I personally wouldn’t have any problems with that *wink*

Lauren Dane – Aahhhh, the Brown Siblings. The wicked sexy this author gives with her heartwarming characters *dreamy sigh* Since erotic romance is conquering Euopre as well. This author should get an invite. Just saying *smiles*

Elizabeth Vaughan – I’ve read Warprize, Warlord and Warsworn years ago but to this day it still remains as one of my favorite romance fantasy trilogies. I think it would be fantastic if C.L. Wilson, Anne Bishop and Elizabeth Vaughan could do a world building panel. *Dream come true*

Shiloh Walker – I *love* the romantic suspense of this author…and her tortured heroes. Dear lawd does she do tortured! I will be utter fangurl waiting on my copy of BROKEN to be signed!!

And last but not least;

Laura Wright - The vampire world she created reignited my love for the vamps in the PNR genre. The vampires *rawr* very primal and toe curling sexay, the world is refreshing and starting this series (Mark Of The Vampire) only gives you a hunger for more ;)

I think, re-reading my letter, there's a lot of sexy going on in the descriptions LOL If you, who will or want to attend #LLC2013, have authors you want to meet, just comment with the names and let the LLC peeps know!

  1. OH, I think Abigail Roux would make a wonderful addition to your list! She's a very popular m/m romance author who I would love to meet. And I bet lots of other LLC2013 visitors with me!
    Great initiative, this letter, Leo! :D

    1. Oh...I do hope LLMag will someday have a M/M section. But even without such a section I would like to meet some M/M authors at LLC too. I just didn't include then in this post as I believe LLMag is still m/f oriented.

  2. :) If I could ever work it out, I'd love to meet you, too.

    Thanks for the mention!

    1. YAY - can't wait to see some of yours. Is there perhaps a spot on BookLovers Inc.? Where you can spotlight authors you guys love to meet?

  4. Great idea Leontine! How about some authors who are translated into Dutch like Gini Koch, Yasmine Galenorn, Laurell K. Hamilton, Suzanne McLeod, Gail Carriger, Jenn Bennett?

  8. Leontine, you warmed my heart. And flattered me into cartwheels, mentioning me among all these other fantastic and talented folks. I'll look forward greatly to the day we meet. I'm still working on the pesky problem of getting on a plane without a level of drug use that causes the airport canine units to sniff at me suspiciously, but lesser miracles have been known to happen (wink). Thank you, hon!

  9. Leontine,
    I love your list! A link to your blog was posted on Joey W. Hill's Fan Forum (http://jwhconnection.com/). I think yours will now be another blog I follow!

    If you can, plan to come to Savannah next year for Author's After Dark 2013. It's a ridiculously wonderful convention. Also, Joey will be in attendance. (She is as wonderful in person as she is in her interviews and posts!) Happy reading!
