I’m a reading machine these days, and while privately, I’m having fun with most of my latest book finds, none so far have wow’d me into *squee* mode.
Bummer, I know!! I’ve even been getting plenty of sleep! I miss my inner zombie…
So they’re good… just not crazy-good. I’ll still tell y’all about ‘em one by one, in case you’re in the mood for a bit of angst and love drama (as opposed to the intense rip-your-heart-out, but love-him-to-death kind), but do not despair, I’m still on the hunt for the next great one!
In the meantime, here’s the latest author news I’ve compiled. Good stuff to look forward too, including a soon-to-be paperback version of Travis (see below for the “announcement”).
- Diana Gabaldon has announced the title of book # 8 in the Outlander series (and insists that this is probably NOT the last book in the series)
“WRITTEN IN MY OWN HEART’S BLOOD
(I still want an octopus on the cover, but we’ll deal with that later.)”
- Lara Adrian is hosting a contest!! Would you like to win an autographed ARC (advanced reader copy) of Lara’s hardcover debut, DARKER AFTER MIDNIGHT? Click here for details
- Michelle Rowen has posted a link to the first three chapters of her upcoming release “That Old Black Magic (A Living in Eden Novel)” (you know… that series with the sexy cover model that I won’t stop woohoo’ing over!?). Hrmmm… maybe I should get started on a cover model post dedicated to him…
- Katie MacAlister was featured in an interview and discussed her book Much Ado About Vampires: A Dark Ones Novel, on the RT Book Reviews website (Romantic Times)
- Jeaniene Frost blogged her ComicCon schedule
- Caridad Pineiro posted a couple of “cover shots” of the upcoming anthology A Vampire for Christmas: Enchanted by Blood\Monsters Don’t Do Christmas\When Herald Angels Sing\All I Want For Christmas (Hqn) Maybe it’s not really “news” per se, but it’s eye candy, that’s for sure, and I couldn’t resist including these!! I heart them both. Wouldn’t they look SO good on my bookshelves?
- Jamie McGuire has just announced:
“That announcement is: Beautiful Disaster will be available in print as soon as Justin McClure finishes the cover. (No pressure, Justin. Only thousands of fans waiting.) That is all.”
- Jill Myles is a writing machine!! She blogged her entire writing schedule (including more for the Succubus Diaries series), and her “hope-to-writes” too!
- Kim Harrison releases the book cover to her upcoming “A Perfect Blood (Rachel Morgan)” – gorgeous cover, ‘cept that… doesn’t that look like the latest model for Cat and Bones? Come to think of it, the whole thing looks like a Cat and Bones cover.
she will also be at a book signing (she posted this on Oct 6th):
“I will be at the NYU bookstore on 726 Broadway (at Astor Place) a week from today at 6:30 pm for Q&A and a signing.
- Kerrelyn Sparks will also be at a book signing. Go meet her, and get that sexy Gregori (Sexiest Vampire Alive) signed She’s so nice! She says:
“Booksigning this Saturday, 3-5 pm at the B&N in Plano, TX. (I know my name isn’t listed on the page, but I WILL be there!!! Sophie Jordan will be there, too!)”
