Author Gossip(7) and Cover Coveting(2)

As a reader I always want the download on what's going on with authors. Do they have new books coming out, how the latest tour going, any thing 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.

WarpedWarped is a debut title that I have been itching to get my hands on, unfortunately it’s only a hardback release so I’m holding off until paperback.  School Library Journal will be putting in a star review and here's the last bit.

This absorbing and mesmerizing read has it all–fantasy, romance, witchcraft, life-threatening situations, detective work, chase scenes, and a smattering of violence. Imaginative and compelling, it’s impossible to put down.–Genevieve Gallagher, Charlottesville High School, VA 
Needless to say, but I will of course:  Woot!! Team Unicorn!
I am absolutely thrilled!!!

Hereafter Speaking of debut books of the year, Hereafter by Tara Hudson is another title that’s caught my eye.  Hudson wants readers to get a chance to read her pride and joy.  That’s right ACRs people. 

Check out the authors post to learn how to get the goods!  Click here.   Contest runs tell March 7th.

The Art of Seducing a Naked WerewolfThe reviews for HOW TO FLIRT WITH A NAKED WEREWOLF are in and the fans are loving it!  Usually I’m not in to these kind of comedy/paranormal romances, but it sounds really fun.

So if you’re one of the lucky ones who have already read the first book, an excerpt for the first one is already out!  Well at least is was supposed to be out as a little sneak peek of HOW TO FLIRT WITH A NAKED WEREWOLF, but there was some issues and it wasn’t included.  So Molly Harper has generously released an excerpt on her blog.  Just click here to get more on the Naked Werewolf fun!

City of Fallen Angels (Mortal Instruments, Book 4) Legions of fans everywhere I counting down the months, days, hours, minutes, and even seconds until the release of City of Fallen Angels.  That’s no exaggeration, have you seen all the counters out there?  This time I am beyond excited to not give you little paragraphs but a whole excerpt!!

So read Chapter 1 right now!!

Blood Wyne (Sisters of the Moon, Book 9) Yasmine Galenorn is celebrating that she writes KINKY SEX SCENES in her books, and she’s not stopping any time soon.  How is she celebrating?  By giving away two Amazon gift cards!

So help her celebrate those KINKY SEX SCENES just click here.

The Ghost and the Goth

The Ghost and the Goth ended up being a really great read for me, which was a bit of a surprise. (Check out my review here.)  So with the second book out and the third one on the way it’s sad to think that the fun will be coming to an end.  Luckily that’s not the news!  The author posted a little tidbit from Publishers Marketplace Announcement.

Author of The Ghost and the Goth Stacey Kade's THE RULES, about a girl who was raised as a genetic experiment hiding from her creators under the guise of being a "normal" sixteen-year-old, and the boy who tempts her to break the rules that confine her existence, to Christian Trimmer at Disney-Hyperion, in a very nice deal, in a two-book deal, for publication in Summer 2013, by Laura Bradford at Bradford Literary Agency (World English).

My pretty ladies

Angelina’s Secret by Lisa Rogers

Source:  Jennifer L. Armentrout

Shera’s Thoughts:  Totally agree with Armentrout, it’s creepy beautiful!  I love how her shadow is being cast by the light coming in the window.  As a photographer I fully appreciate the artistic talent and thought that went into it.


Author’s Thoughts:

Okay. I am so excited about this cover and author, because I got to read a bit of this a little while ago and I FELL IN LOVE WITH IT.  Not to mention Lisa is such a sweet heart. You guys got to check this book out. 
So here is the cover that was revealed earlier for Lisa Rogers' debut novel. Isn't it just creepy? - Jennifer L. Armentrout

The Gods of Dream by Daniel Arenson

Source:  Far From Reality

Shera’s Thoughts:  This cover is fantasy.  Just looking at it makes me remember why I love Epic Fantasy so much.  It’s beyond stunning.

A hint of the far off land waiting to be explored.  The feather hair that’s just begging me to ask “Feather?”   The Hawk is so commanding.


Someone Elses Thoughts:

Every once in a while I will come across a cover that just takes my breath away.

I have not read this book yet, but the cover is just so pretty and  well done, I had to share it! – Far From Reality
