Per Alice's suggestion, it would be nice to list any upcoming new releases for this year as we are aware of them. Do we want to give this a try?

I'll start with one that I'm only too aware of:

A Murderous Procession by Ariana Franklin - To be released in April, 2010

Wild Romance: A Victorian Story of a Marriage, a Trial, and a Self-Made Woman

The Queen's Lover: A Novel

The Sheen on the Silk: A Novel

The Queen's Pawn

The Botticelli Secret

The Highest Stakes: He's racing to win back his country, his fortune and his one true love

I can't quite figure out what I'm doing wrong and get them to display side by side. Another PBS learning curve. Sigh...

Sigh.  Why do I open these types of threads?  I added several to my wish list, and I've pre-ordered the Franklin, the Weir and the English.  The last two are about Eleanor of Acquitaine, so how could I resist?  And I so love the Franklin series.  I just wishlisted the Cornwell.  I know - gasp!!  However, that's not a time period I usually love. I can wait.  Hopefully he's done with this one so he can return his attention to Uhtred!

Note to all HF writers:  STOP!!!!  I need to catch up on all the awesome HF I haven't read in the last 20 or so years.  Let me catch up and then you can write some more.  And those of you who have been faithfully reading all this time, you can just go find some cheapy bodice-rippers or vampire books to read while you wait for me to catch up.

I am not sure how I will ever keep up with all my historical fiction, mysteries and paranormal (and whatever my book club throws at me) At this rate we will need Spark notes for all our new books (I am joking) My daughter is reading Romeo and Juliet in high school, her English teacher told them to read the Sprak Notes if they don't understand the play. I wasn't thrilled.

Why is it that I'm already excited for the 2011 Challenge, when I'm only halfway through this year's Challenge #1 and a fraction of the way through Challenge #2?  LOL!

I love looking at the lists at HNS! It's a great resource, especially since it lists all of the H/F being released, not just the ones being published here. I like seeing what other countries have to offer as well. Then, you can order it from the Book Depository and get free shipping; always a good thing!

I wish I'd been keeping a list of all the forthcoming books I find instead of being greedy and only taking note of the books I want for myself. I'll stop doing that now that we have this thread! ;-)

Valli - I've been checking HNS and I don't see a release date for "Heartstone" by C.J. Sansom. Do you have any idea as to when that might be? Or does anybody here?

I think Heartstone is coming out in the UK this summer. I don't know the pub date for us yet. I'm looking forward to it too!
