Ok, today I’m blog-stalking while I work (bad me! but so much fun!). Let’s see what the authors are revealing in their blogs this week 🙂 I’ll try to post book related news only but check out their blogs anyway for some cool introspective posts (ok, note – some are older posts, but still news to me! So now, news to you 😉 )
- Shiloh Walker has blogged about the book she self-published called Beg Me (she controlled everything about it, and enjoyed that, but admits, it’s hard). Here’s the cover, and an excerpt. She’s also giving away a copy of Haunted by Your Touch – check out her blog for details.
- Alyson Noel blogs her cover of “Shimmer” – so cute! She’s also signing “Night Star (Immortals)” at her book release on Nov 16th (Barnes and Noble in California)!! Check out the link for details. ALSO she tweeted: Her last book in the Immortals series (Everlasting) is scheduled for release in 2011.
- Ann Aguirre posts her “Shady Lady: A Corine Solomon Novel” cover and the cover and title for her new YA novel —>The Enclave (formerly known as Razorland)
- Michele Bardsley is writing “Now Or Never” (book #2 in her Nevermore Wizards series), and blogs about writing in general and the difference between her two series:
Broken Heart has a casualness to it, an informal approach to narrative where slang, cussing, contractions, and colloquialisms create the familiar vibe.
Nevermore, despite being a small town in Texas with a slightly Southern feel, is more sophisticated. Urbane. Dark. Formal. It’s not without its humorous moments, but unlike Broken Heart, the style is meant to loiter on the edge of urban fantasy and paranormal romance.
- Michele Bardsley is also excited because: “I’m doing the happy dance because my proposal for Broken Heart 9 has been approved. Woot! And yes, it’s another werewolf: Drake. And an archaeologist named Moira. And we get to meet Shamhat and Amahte. Finally, right?”
- Ilona Andrews posts her “Magic Slays (Kate Daniels)” cover
- Stacia Kane is writing Downside 4 and is pleased with her progress 🙂 I can’t wait!! She blogs about her Halloween, a cute pic of her is posted with her glasses, and she ever speaks of that new show “Walking Dead”. I watched it and loved it – and like her, I’ve never been a zombie fan (that’s more my husband’s thing…) What is it with guys and zombies? Anyway all that to say, I LOVE her blog. I can relate to her so well. And it’s not just cause she invented Terrible 😉 ALSO! She has a short “Downside” story that will be included in the Home Improvement: Undead Edition Anthology.

- Jacquelyn Frank discusses her latest release “Drink of Me” – it’s a standalone, and she says:
Of course, I know you people…you’re all gonna fall in love with this group of guys and you’re going to start pestering me for more books and to make a series out of it. Well…I have learned to never say never, so let’s just say ‘not at this time’ and leave it at that, shall we?
