Susan Grant, Lisa Shearin, Gwyneth Bolton, Linnea Sinclair News!

Susan Grant is adding her brilliance to MYSTERIA LANE, an anthology, this June, I think.
I've never read anything by the other authors, MaryJanice Davidson, Gena Showalter, and P.C. Cast. I keep meaning to, but ARCs take priority and I have them stacked to the ceiling, metaphorically speaking. Of course, Susan's a Blog Buddy, so she can get her stuff reviewed anytime she wants on Enduring Romance. Lady Bronco reviewed one of MaryJanice Davidson's novels last year. Additionally, Susan garnered a P.E.A.R.L nomination for Best Futuristic for HOW TO LOSE AN EXTRATERRESTRIAL IN 10 DAYS, which was reviewed here last year as well.
Lisa Shearin had a stellar week. She signed the contracts to sell foreign rights to MAGIC LOST, TROUBLE FOUND to Russia! And she found out it's sold so well it's going back for another printing. The best news, however, is that she's agreed to let us throw a Cyber-Launch Book Party on April 24th for her next book, ARMED & MAGICAL, which hits the shelves April 29th. Sharpen your stilletos, ladies. Her goblins are hot!
I'm not sure how long the covers for Gwyneth Bolton's new books have been out, but I just saw them on MySpace so I had to tell you all.

Omigoodness, they are so gorgeous!
Last, but certainly not least, Linnea Sinclair won the P.E.A.R.L. for Best Science Fiction or Fantasy for GAMES OF COMMAND. She also garnered an honorable mention for DOWN HOME ZOMBIE BLUES. I'm reviewing GABRIEL'S GHOST, Linnea's Rita-winner, this coming Thursday. It's the first book in a series. The second book, SHADES OF DARK, comes out this summer. I'll be reviewing that next month.

Not sure what the other Blog Buddies are doing. This all is just what I'm aware of.

Woo hoo!

Cyber party! I LOVE cyber parties.

(Sigh) I'd ask if you could host mine (in May) but my novel is definitely out of place in your line up (no babies, no sci fi, a very aggressive alpha male - I know how you "love" them! LOL). Your readers will think I plied you with chocolate or something stronger to get the spot.

So instead I will continue to crash other author's parties. That is a lot more fun anyhow!

Hi, Kimber Chin!

Oh, I like Alpha Males, so long as they're not jerkwads trying to pass themselves off as Alpha Males and the Heroine is smart and strong enough to know the difference.
Your novel does look cool, but I can't count to ten when I have my mittens on. So, you can just imagine how scary a novel set in the business world is to me!

P.S. I can't wait until the Cyber-Launch Party. Just don't come dressed-up as a calculator or I might run away screaming. Zombies and mummies are okay, but, please, nothing with numbers!

Can't wait for the party... you throw the best!

Thanks for posting the covers for the first three books in my upcoming Hightower Honors Series. I like them a lot. :-)

Hi, Gwyneth. Yeah, you really lucked out with those book covers. They're beautiful.
