The Scoop on J.R. Ward…

All credit for this info goes to Amber, who found some info on one of J.R. Ward‘s new series on Twitter…

NAL Inks Ward to New Series

Bestselling author J.R. Ward has signed a three-book, world rights deal with New American Library to do a contemporary series. Called the Bourbon Kings, the series will, as NAL explained, “follow the intertwined fortunes of several ultrawealthy Kentucky families who have made their fortunes from bourbon.” The first Bourbon Kings book is set for late 2015. The deal was brokered by NAL’s Kara Welsh and Steven Axelrod at the Axelrod Agency. Ward, the pen name for Jessica Bird, writes paranormal romance (and romances under her given name); as J.R. Ward, her series include the Black Dagger Brotherhood and the Fallen Angels. Lucy Stille at Agency for the Performing Arts is handling film/television rights for the series.”

Like I said to Amber, I wasn’t expecting a non-paranormal for one of the new series, for some reason. It is nice to see an author branch out and try something different. Stay tuned for more info.

    Ward, like me is a Kentucky girl through and through. And what’s not to like about Kentucky Bourbon!

      The Brotherhood is so dark, it is hard to imagine her writing something on the lighter side. It sounds like fun.

  2. Jackie (Literary Escapism) says:

    Not so different for Ward. Her Jessica Bird series are all straight up romances, the majority of them are contemporary if I’m not mistaken (which I could be).

      That’s true…I haven’t read them, but I do remember they were re-released a while back. I really should check them out.
