Welcome to 3 Quick Questions. Here you’ll find out about an author’s recent or latest release—in a flash. I’m very fortunate that New York Times Bestselling author Jayne Castle (aka Jayne Ann Krentz and Amanda Quick) agreed to stop by to discuss her current release CANYONS OF NIGHT and other upcoming projects.
ABOUT THE BOOK
CANYONS OF NIGHT
Book Three of the Looking Glass Trilogy
An Arcane Society Novel – Book #12
The island of Rainshadow is home to the mysterious, privately-owned woods known only as the Preserve. Now, after fifteen years away, both Charlotte Enright and her teen crush, Slade Attridge, have returned. But will their psi talents and Slade’s dust bunny companion be enough to keep them from getting drawn into the darkness at the heart of the Preserve?
1. Inquiring minds want to know. Who’s the dust bunny?
The heroic dust bunny in CANYONS OF NIGHT is named Rex. This dust bunny has a real sense of style. He carries a clutch purse. He’s the companion of the hero, Slade Attridge, the new police chief of Rainshadow Island.
2. Will readers get to see more stories based on Rainshadow Island?
They certainly will. CANYONS OF NIGHT is the start of a new series of adventures on Harmony. And, yes, there will be dust bunnies.
3. What’s up next for Jayne Ann Krentz?
This year I’m going to untangle my three names. I can already hear the sigh of relief from readers. Believe me, I am well aware that these last two trilogies which tracked through all three of my names have not been the easiest trilogies to follow! I appreciate those readers who followed me into all three of my landscapes — Quick, Krentz and Castle — more than they will ever know. But now I’m going back to a different series under each name.
As I said, CANYONS OF NIGHT starts a new Castle series. In January I will fire up a new contemporary series under my Jayne Ann Krentz name, the Dark Legacy Novels. The first book in that series is COPPER BEACH. And in April CRYSTAL GARDENS will launch my new Amanda Quick series, the Ladies of Lantern Street novels. There. Is that confusing enough?
I’m delighted to have this opportunity to chat with your readers. Thank you so much for inviting me. And by the way, Dara, I’m really looking forward to your September release, ALL I WANT IS YOU.
It was a pleasure having you Jayne.
Three different names, three different landscapes and one great promise–an entertaining read. Find out more about Jayne on her website and on Facebook.
I will read these books no matter what name you use! Dee
I loved Rex and his clutch purse. He’s absolutely adorable! And, Rainshadow is definitely an intriguing place and I can’t wait to learn more about it and the Preserve. I had no problem following the last two trilogies and loved the continuity of using all three eras to bring together the Arcane Society and the world of Harmony. It was wonderfully done. Last but not least, just want to say Keep Up the Great Writing!!
I love all your pen names and read the books no matter which name they are written under, but will look forward to the 3 new series.
Have read everything I can find under all your pen names.
Love your work and can’t wait for more. Something about
your characters resonates within me. Should be required
reading in high schools, teaching how to live with honor,
courage, and integrity – not to mention excellent “how-to”
sex manuals :>)
To Jayne Ann Krentz,
I Love All of you personalities and following along in the last 2 series has been an absolute Joy and wonder. I started reading the Amanda Quick novels ages ago and have about 20 of them, then I back read the Jayne Ann Krentz ones, and in the last year or 2 discovered the Jayne Castle ones. I love the bit of supernatural you have added to the stories, and the fact that your leading ladies are not always the bell of the ball, but find someone who finds them fasinating and true love concures the day, if not always easiely. Thanks for them all, and keep up with the good work!!
Been a fan since the beginning; read every book under each of your names. Simply in love with your writing style and characters. Can’t wait to read the current book. A dust bunny that carries a purse totally fabulous, as a handbag enthusiast I commend her style!
All of your books are like trusted friends that I revisit constantly.
I really like to get all the books in a series before I start, then just read them all in a row. Hate when I get to end of book and didn’t realize there were going to be more. Worst when the next one not out yet.
