A New Year . . . And Two New Releases

Well, here we are in 2011 {!!} already, and bright and early this year we are officially on Bewitching Watch for not one release, but two from the Bewitching Mysteries! Book 7 in the series – HOME FOR A SPELL – was released in hardcover on January 4th, and right alongside it was the mass market paperback release of Book 6, A WITCH IN TIME. Which means, if you missed AWIT in hardcover or were waiting for it to come out in paperback, now is your chance!



I have to say, 2010 was a year of changes for me. Recapitulating, restructuring, revelations, a lot of hard work, and in the end, the greatest of rewards. It wasn’t an easy year, but wow, how starry bright the world looks right now! What are some of the things I have been up to? Historic home remodeling, world travel, worrying and fussing to previously unrealized levels, packing, putting the newly finished home on the market, moving one son with me to meet my husband in South Carolina {final ETA yet to be determined}, and suffering the separation of pets and family. My Christmas holiday season included two trips to Charleston, two stops in Morristown, TN, one dead alternator, a quick trip back to Indiana to return Number 3 Son, back to Charlotte, and then a flight to NYC, a whirlwind survey of northern New Jersey, and then a return flight to Charlotte. And it’s not over yet. My husband’s National Guard unit has a trip overseas coming up next month. After that? Who knows!

On the book front, I am finishing up Book 8, which has just been given the title IN CHARM’S WAY. And, I hope to have some good news for you soon about further releases in the Bewitching Mysteries. Cross your fingers that the PTB luuuuuuuuurrrrrve the sales numbers they’ve been seeing!

And to all of you who have been recommending my books to their friends, relatives, and perfect strangers in the bookstore aisles, you have my undying gratitude and forever love! Honestly and truly. You are all the bestest of the best!

That being said . . . Happy 2011, dearhearts!

Forever,


Mad {madly!}

Not sure if my comment went through.

I can't imagine how hard it is to write a book, let alone an excellent one. I love your books! I wish you could write more than one a year. "Home for a Spell" was great and reading it went by too quickly. I look forward to your next book. Maybe another in 2011?

I just finished reading "The Trouble with Magic" and excited to continue reading the other books in the series. Have you ever been to a store like Enchantments? You make it sound so vivid. Good luck with continuing the series.

I recently picked up book 1, and it took me quite a while to actually get into it. But once I decided to take the leap and buy the full version {I had the sample on my nook} I fell in love. I managed to purchase all 7 books. :] I started out reading one, then buying the next, by the time I started book 3, I decided to just buy all of the rest and read from there! It was probably the best and worst idea I've ever had! Best because as soon as one finished, I immediately had the next one waiting to be opened. The Worst was because I managed to finish 4 books in 2 days. I didn't sleep a wink because I couldn't stop!!!!

Anyway. I love your series, and CANNOT wait for book 8 to be released.

I just wanted to share that with you! :]

I love your book series. Once I read the 1st book I went back and bought all of them at once and finished them in less than a week. I can't wait to reread them and can't wait for your next ones to come out. I hope its soon because I'm pretty impatient. LOL
Thanks for your great writing and books.

Love the Bewitching series. I read the first one and couldn't put it down, so I had to get all 7 of them!! I'm also getting some for my friend's birthdays, I'm sure they'll become addicted!!! LOL

When will there be a paperback edition of Home for a Spell?

I picked up and read the first five books of the series this week. I really enjoyed them and cannot wait to buy the others.
I was also pleasantly surprised that my hometown of Morristown was a stopping point for you recently. Small world.

I'll definitely recommend the series to friends and family. Hope you enjoy the rest of 2011.

Any news on when Home for a Spell will be released in paperback? I just can't afford hardback books these days and it seems an awful long wait for paperbacks. I need to know what happens next! And soon!

I noticed with some dismay that "In Charm's Way", originally scheduled for release in early October 2011, is "currently unavailable" at Amazon, and not on Berkley's list at all. I love your books and I'm eagerly awaiting this one. Can you give us any idea of the new publishing date? Thank you!

I recently discovered your bewitching mysteries, but I'm concerned. www.MadelynAlt.com doesn't work, you haven't posted here in 10 months, and the latest book has been pushed back from October 2011 to May 2012. Is your series being cancelled? I'm curious to know if there will be more.
