The Julie Anne Long Newsletter Archives

Below are links to past issues of the graphic version of my newsletter, which I introduced in January 2005. (The previous text versions issued in 2004, must, alas, remain lost to posterity, as fascinating as they were.) Clicking on a link below will take you to the newsletter; to get back to this page, just hit the "back" button on your browser. The popular "Magical History Tour" feature is also archived on the hmmm... page.

  01.27.05 Do you need a secret handshake to get in, or...? TO LOVE A THIEF will be a featured alternate in both the Rhapsody and Doubleday Book Clubs! (and no, you don't need a secret handshake!)

is this a secret handshake?
My firstborn is making me proud!...THE RUNAWAY DUKE was nominated for Historical Romance of the Year (2004) in two different categories by the Historical Romance Club! Take a look at all the esteemed nominees. :) Winners will be announced March 23rd. Cross your fingers!

A prize in Duke's future?

Fa la la la la, etc. ...
Take a sneak-peek at my next book, TO LOVE A THIEF, find out who won my last contest, enter a new (and, OK, decidedly silly) contest and...why are you still reading this?? Shouldn't you be out Christmas shopping?!? Isn't Christmas like...tomorrow?? (Just kidding. You can stop hyperventilating now).

take a peek, and preorder if the
spirit moves you.

THE RUNAWAY DUKE has already gone back for a second printing!! I'm reeling with joy, shock, and vertigo, although I think the last has something to do with my summer cold. LOL! Also, name a horse in my new contest, read lovely new DUKE reviews, peek at my diary, and... am I missing anything?
the answer is somewhere on this site!
hi ho, silver! who was this
cranky old horse?
