May 2018

Dear Readers:

Is anyone else sick of all the negativity in the world? It’s not just politics, either. There’s terrorism, and school shootings, and sexual harassment on a monumental scale, and sex trafficking of children, and climate change, and everywhere you turn, people are going nuts. The atmosphere is toxic, isn’t it?

But guess what? I have a solution. Books.

Don’t get me wrong. I don’t want to minimize the seriousness of all these issues, but sometimes you just need to escape from the madness. And I have found that a good book can lift your spirits, or at least take you to another world…at least for a while. And it doesn’t even have to be a humorous book. For myself, I’ve been glomming all kinds, especially series, or linked books. The Bodie and Brock Thoene religious series…there are so many to choose from. The Patrick Taylor Irish Doctor series…reminds me of Maeve Binchy. The latest Suzanne Brockmann Troubleshooters book…always entertaining! Susan Elizabeth Phillips…that woman is so good at the banter between a man and a woman. And Janet Evanovich…damn, but I love Joe Morelli! And currently I’m back on a Dorothea Benton Frank kick for my love of Southern settings. But then, I like Elin Hilderbrand for her Nantucket love stories, too.

And Sandra Hill books…don’t forget those. Boy, do I have a bunch of new and newly reissued books coming up, to satisfy every reader (Cajuns, Vikings, Navy SEALs, honestly, almost everything), and some special promotions, as well.


I’m about to put out reissued editions of VIKING HEAT and DARK VIKING in both print and eBook format These award winning Viking Navy SEAL time travels are part of my Viking Series II. Like all my series, the books can stand alone and do not need to be read in order, though some prefer that way. Honestly, I went back and read these books again for the first time in years, in order to update them, and they are so good! Even I had to wonder where I came up with this stuff. So funny!

I’m also in the process of writing a long novella tied to those two books, tentatively titled THE CAGED VIKING. Check back on this website ( if it ever gets redesigned, please God!), or my FaceBook page at Sandra Hill Author, or better yet, sign up for my mailing list to get the latest news.

Hachette is putting out a new reissue of TALL, DARK, AND CAJUN in print on May 29. It is already available in eBook format.

Then, Avon will be releasing another new Cajun novel in print, eBook, and audio on June 26, titled CAJUN PERSUASION. This is the story of Aaron LeDeux, twin brother of Daniel LeDeux from THE CAJUN DOCTOR. The book opens in a strip joint, and the heroine is a nun, or almost-nun.

On September 25, a new Bell Sound series will be launched, starting with THE FOREVER CHRISTMAS TREE. Fans will recognize some of the secondary characters from my Viking Navy SEALs as a crossover here. And there will be the beginning of a treasure hunting plot line, similar to that in my old Jinx series. The setting is the Outer Banks of North Carolina, sometimes called the Graveyard of the Atlantic.

After that, there might be a sequel to WHEN LULU WAS HOT. Did you read Tante Lulu’s very own story? If not, you should. Several fans told me they cried, as well as laughed, with this one. I love this cover!

On Nov. 18 a newly reissued version of THE CAJUN COWBOY in print format will be available from Hachette. It is already out in eBook, but you’ll be able to find it in both brick and mortar stores, like WalMart then, as well as on the Internet. Shades of the good old days!

A surfeit of riches, I say. Book riches!


I’ve mentioned it before and it bears repeating…I love hearing from readers. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your telling me how you feel about my books and how they affect you personally.
