Because it’s Saturday and I like pizza, I thought I’d share a few goodies I’ve run across while surfing the bookish blogosphere recently. What this post has to do with me liking pizza I don’t know, I just thought I’d mention it. You know, so you know. Here we go…
Fans of the Southern Arcana series will be thrilled to know that Bree and Donna, the geniuses behind the pen name Moira Rogers, have posted a deleted scene, Math of Mating, from Crossroads. I, being a big fan of the series, was thrilled the ladies threw this puppy a little bone. I blew through Crossroads way too fast and now I’m anxious for more. Deleted scenes will have to do until Deadlock is ready for the world.
Also, since where talking about Crossroads, Lillie over at I Don’t Want To Wait, I Want The Book Now interviewed Nick and Derek from Crossroads. They are such a snarky but completely loveable couple. I should have them over for dinner sometime. On second thought maybe not, trouble seems to follow those Southern Arcana shifters everywhere they go. We’ll see.
For all you Urban Fantasy fanatics, be sure to stop by All Things Urban Fantasy for a very nice list of urban fantasy giveaways. If you’re not an Urban Fantasy fanatic why not? Just kidding. I’m not. Go ahead and swing by, click some links, win a book and see what you’ve been missing.
Ever wonder what goes on the brain of Keith Melton, author of Blood Vice? Me neither, way too scary for a mere mortal such as myself. But if you are curious about the diabolical musings of a mad writer (ok I might be exaggerating just a bit) stop over at Book Lovers Inc., read the interview and comment for a chance to win a copy of Blood Vice. I’ve heard it’s good. I have copy on my Kindle awaiting my attention. Oh and you really need to follow Keith on twitter. He’s a good tweet. @KeithMelton99 Be sure to tell him @fictionvxn and Phrank sent you. Trust me on this.
Here’s another one for your Urban Fantasy lovers. Rachel Vincent has posted a mini-excerpt on her blog from Shift, the 5th book in her Shifters series. I’m reading this book right now and let me tell you, you will want to read this book. It’s one of those books you think about even when you’re not reading. Good stuff. Head on over for a little teaser.
And finally, a little cover candy for you:
Coming July 2010
Some people will do anything to avoid it. Even trade their immortal souls for endless existence.
Secretly, inexorably, they are infiltrating our world, sucking the essence out of unsuspecting victims with their hideous parody of a kiss.
Adam Thorne founded the Institute to study and destroy his monster of a brother, but the key to its success is held in the pale, slender hand of a woman on the run. There is something hauntingly different about Talia O’Brien, her unknowing sensuality, her uncanny way of slipping into Shadow.
This is the place between life and what comes after – a dark forest of fantasy, filled with beauty, peril, mystery. And Talia is about to open the door.
This one is a ways off yet but it’s on my wish list!
Ok so that’s all folks. What’s new and exciting in your Google reader, Bloglines, Feedburner or however you keep track of your favorite bookish blogs?
PS-I was serious about the pizza. Please send pizza. Thank you.
