Debut: Lip's Don't Lie

As a reader I always want the download on what's going on with authors. Do they have new books coming out, hows their latest tour going, anything juicy! So, I decided to bring the news to my readers. I'm lurking around all of those author blogs anyway, might as well do something productive.

Well, it's finally here. I'm so giddy and hopeful about this post. It's been a crazed obsession for me, trying to make sure I got all of the good authors newsletters and blog feed up. Honestly it was way past time. Sifting through author site after author site wasn't healthy. So with out further babble, here it is!

Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices, #1)
Cassandra Clare's Clockwork Angel  is debuting at #1 on the New York Times children's best seller list!

Ann Aguirre just sold two more Corine Solomon books. Devil's Punch (book 4) and Bloody Maria (book 5) are scheduled to be released April 2012 and 2013.  Those are some hot names, let's hope the covers are just as hot.

Grimspace (Sirantha Jax, #1) Wanderlust (Sirantha Jax, #2)
Doubleblind (Sirantha Jax, #3) Killbox (Sirantha Jax, #4)

Deborah Cook is coming out with a YA Dragonfire series. No titles or expected dates posted.

Bitter Night (Horngate Witches, #1)Diana Pharaoh Francis sold book three and four of her Horngate Witches series to Pocket Books. Book three is Shadow city, "the apocalypse of magic has destroyed most of humanity and magical creatures of every stripe are crawling out of the woodwork to take back the world. Horngate is the only independent covenstead that remains. Vastly outpowered, they fight to survive against both human and magical enemies. If only their friends weren't trying to kill them too.…"

Voices of Dragons
Carrie Vaughn can no longer ignore the persistent emails from her fans asking, "Is there going to be a sequel to VOICES OF DRAGONS?"

Yes! So rejoice fans there's a sequel in the making. Bad news is that she's working on her latest kitty book first. So really it's nothing but good news!

Hush, Hush (Hush, Hush, #1)
Becca Fitzpatrick has been avoiding the question, "Will there be a third book in the Hush, Hush series?" Well finally she's got the answer and it's a yes. After sending a daring proposal for book 3 that she thought would not go over well with her editor (of course her editor went crazy), she got the OK.  So Tempest is on it's way, she's only the third of the way through yet so not much to be said. However here's what she can say:

. . . it's shaping up to be all kinds of things I love: Twisty-turny, full of suspense, a little creepy, and most of all, there are some pretty electric scenes between Patch and Nora.
It's supposedly due Fall of 2011. Becca's not sure if this will be the last in the series, nothings certain.  See the authors full post here.

Wings (Wings, #1)
Aprilynne Pike releases the name of book three in the Wings series, Illusions. Apparently the name picking for the series was really tough. Using season names was a first choice, Spring, Summer, ext. but vetoed as not catchy enough.  Some of the spoof names are pretty great. Flower Girl, Petalwings, Roots, and Venus Boy Trap.

Check out her full post here.

Karen Chance is sharing some sample chapters of Hunt the Moon, the fifth Cassie Palmer novel. It's like torture reading it, knowing it's still going to be a long wait. If you'd like to torture yourself too, click here.

Chloe Neil's latest cover! Isn't she a beauty.

Now I will leave you on a more somber note.  Lot's of authors had really beautiful 9-11 posts this week, but Meg Cabot's post really hit me. Pretty much I was clutching my Kleenex box and crying a river. Really, you need to read this.

Hope you enjoyed the first of what I hope is a beautiful feature. Let me know what you didn't like about the post or liked?  What would you like more for this feature? Give me your feedback.

Glad you like it!!

The info comes from a lot of hard work, and author surfing. Signing up for Newsletters just don't cut it. Authors post stuff on their blogs, or even over at goodreads. Basically it's everywhere. It's just all about filtering.
