Tuesday News

Good morning blog buds! First off, an announcement- we have a new reviewer. Mary Fitz, also known as Mfitz, will be reviewing Science Fiction for us every fourth Thursday starting in September. Her blog is here (I especially like reading about the cons she went to!) and you can find her hanging out at Galaxy Express. If any of our SciFi authors would like their book reviewed, please contact her. Welcome to the team, Mary!

Christine Feehan will release her latest, Dark Curse, in hardcover on September 2. Another in the Carpathian series, it has a heroine who is, according to the blurb, "...a Dragonseeker. Human, yet mage, she was of the blood of three species yet belonged to none. She walked her chosen path alone, guided by the wisdom of her aunts—to blend in and let no one know of her ancestry and powers." It also features an interesting twist for her Carpathians- a hero who is sick of hunting and longs for love without the bite, if you follow.

Jayne Ann Krentz, writing as Jayne Castle, releases her fifth Ghost Hunter book, Dark Light, today! She returns to the alien catacombs of the Earth colony Harmony, and the little fuzzy creatures who help them along. From the blurb: "Reporter Sierra McIntyre's stories on Crystal City's ghost hunters—and their mysterious guild—have earned her tabloid a bit of respect. And they've allowed her to clothe her dust bunny companion Elvis in rock-and-roll style. It helps that she has mega-rez intuition to fall back on..." I plan on being in the bookstore today for this one!
If any of our authors, reviewers, or readers would like to let me know about releases, signings, or other news, please contact me (Robyn from Picnic at Stonehenge) at the link on the left. Happy Tuesday!

Great job, Robyn!

I might add that Mfitz is happy to review Science Fiction Romance, as well as the regular stuff. Since telling Robyn about Mfitz, I've also learned she prefers paper ARCs.

On the topic of ARCs, Kimber Chin prefers electronic ARCs.

Do any of you fellow reviewers have preferences? I've always accepted electronic ARCs, but I don't think I should anymore. Tendinitis and a lack of time makes reading on the computer difficult. I am hoping to buy or receive some kind eBook reader between now and Christmas though. Recommendations on which one to get are welcome!

Either one is fine with me.

Mary, congratulations! Sounds like an exciting venture. Looking forward to reading your reviews.

Robyn, thanks for the shout-out!

And this post reminds me that I really need to dig into some Jayne Castle at some point.
