Taking A Break from IKC for Today's Smooch Stop

Hi Everyone!

I know it's been IKC all the time around here but I just wanted to take a little break and talk about Tempest Unleashed, the follow-up to Tempest Rising.  It hits shelves June 5, 2012 and I finally have the finalized cover for it.  So, with no further ado, here it is:

And as an extra treat, here's the German cover for Tempest Rising.  It's totally different, but I think it's really pretty.  What do you think? 

Don't forget to leave a comment to be entered for today's daily prize on the Around the World in 80 Kisses tour, as well as the weekly and grand prize.  And thanks to everyone who came out for our booksigning this weekend.  We'll post the complete schedule for the rest of the book signing tour later this week.  Happy Wednesday :)

Thoughts on Release Week

Whew! Last week was a blur--coming right out of the holiday madness into The International Kissing Club's release week craziness was like sitting in the last car on the roller coaster. But, y'all, it was so much fun!!

Thank you to each and every one of you who purchased the book, or tweeted about it, or liked us on Facebook, or followed our blog tour, or came to our first Ivy Adams book signing! We could not do this without y'all.

If you live in Waco, Dallas, or Ft. Worth we're coming to visit the weekend of Jan 20-22 and Houston and San Antonio the weekends after that. Check out our Facebook Page for all the deets.

Around The World In 80 Kisses Blog Tour and Giveaway is still chugging along till Valentine's Day so don't forget to comment and get your entries in for the Kindle Fire giveaway.

It's finally here!

After 24 months of hard work and lots of love and laughter, we proudly present The International Kissing Club.

Thank you to everyone who supported us along the way:  our agents, Emily Sylvan Kim at Prospect Agency and Jessica Faust at Bookends; Stacy Cantor-Abrams, formerly at Walker Books (sniff--we miss you already!); the inimitable Sherry Thomas, who shared laughter with us along the way; and our families and friends who suffered and celebrated with us.

With much love,
Ivy Adams
