What Kimber An Wants

Kimber An is happily knocked up these days, which means she's thrilled to be expecting a new little blessing, but she's also tired, spewing into a bucket, highly emotional, and expects to be this way for the duration because she always is.
The good news is she has more time to read.

What Kimber An Wants
.

I've never been into Contemporary Romance, but Karen Templeton, Kara Lennox, and Gwyneth Bolton can send me whatever the heck they want, so long as it's not Erotica. Otherwise, don't email me, I'll email you. Check out the cover art of PREGNANCY SURPRISE by Kara Lennox. The Hero is wearing glasses! And he's an accountant! Can it be true there's finally a Beta hero in the Romance genre again? Oh, please, God, let it be so.
;)
Science Fiction
.
Since I started http://youngadultsciencefiction.blogspot.com/ a couple of months ago, I've been constantly on the lookout for excellent YA Sci Fi which doesn't sink into stereotypes which assume all teens are depressed, hate their parents, and want to sleep with blood-sucking dead guys. I've asked for COMET'S CURSE by Dom Testa, but haven't heard back yet.


.


Any Science Fiction will do, so long as it's also appropriate for my younger friends. Huge bonus points for *Fun & Adventure!* I am so sick of *Dark & Sexy* I could just puke. Of course, I could just about puke over anything these days, but you get me drift.
.
I'll make an exception for Science Fiction Romance, but only if the Heroine actually gets knocked up from all that Hot Nookie in Outer Space. I don't suppose I can ask Susan Grant here if THE WARLORD'S DAUGHTER qualifies without giving it away. So, if she happens by today, she can just email me.
.
Ditto with the Fantasy genre.
.
When's THE TROUBLE WITH DEMONS by Lisa Shearin coming out? When will my copy of THE KING'S DAUGHTERS by Nathalie Mallet get here? And who left the dang lid off the toothpaste again?!!!






.
Historicals
.
Regular Historicals, Historical Romance, and YA Historicals are all welcome, though I really do NOT want to see anything set during popular time periods, like Regency. Check out the blogging schedule. K does an awesome job with those and she prefers eBooks. Ancient History, Medieval, and World War II are my favorites. I've already got THE KING'S DAUGHTER by Sandra Worth waiting in line.

.
YA Fantasy Historicals! Love 'em! Can't get enough! Yes, Marissa Doyle, this means you. Where's my copy of BETRAYING SEASON? While you're at it, if you have a copy of BEWITCHING SEASON I'd appreciate it. Getting out of the house to the library and/or bookstore right now is really hard. Besides puking my guts out, it's been averaging 20 degrees Below Zero Fahrenheidt here in Alaska these days.

.
Well, okay, that's it. Except maybe a cinnomin roll. Anyone got a cinnomin roll they can send me? Can't eat chocolate right now. Makes me spew. Cruel, hmm? Happy Sunday, Bl0g Buds
.
P.S. I can only accept print copies now. I don't have an eBook reader yet and my time on the computer is even more limited. Sorry. I really want to! Hey, my birthday's coming.

Hi Kimber An,

Email me your mailing address and I'll make sure my publicist sends you a reviewer copy of The Trouble with Demons.

Happy spewing! ; )
Lisa

Dom Testa said...

Hi Kimber An,
I'd be happy to send you a review copy of The Comet's Curse. Let me know where to send it.
And thanks! I look forward to reading your review.
Dom Testa

Kimber An said...

Hey, Lisa, it's done. But, what? No cinnomin roll?

Thanks, Mr. Testa! I emailed your publicist. I'll send you my snail-mail too, just in case. Sometimes wires get crossed and vanish into cyberspace black holes.

Susan Grant said...

Got an alert on my name all the way here in Sydney!

My pirate captain is a already a mom! How cool is that, Kimber?! Of course, it makes for a very big complication because she never told the father. heh heh. Well, he was an enemy of the family, in prison, left for dead, etc, etc. And their young son wants to be just like him!

Hugs to you on having to spew into buckets. That part is not fun!

Susan Grant said...

Well, darn, I answered about the book I am writing NOW, due out in 2010. lol. As for Warlord's Daughter, in the end, one assumes they will eventually make a family, as they are married from pretty much the first chapters.

Kimber An said...

Totally fab, Susan. I'll take 'em both! I knew I could on you.
;)

Marissa Doyle said...

Can't oblige with the cinnamon roll--it would get pretty stale between Alaska and Massachusetts...but I can certainly do something about Bewitching Season and probably about Betraying Season...e-mail me your address at doyles@surfgate.net
--I'll send the one and Holt will probably be happy to send the other.

And congratulations! I hope you're over the spew stage soon. It's demoralising. :(

Kimber An said...

"Can't oblige with the cinnamon roll--it would get pretty stale between Alaska and Massachusetts..."

Darn. You're right, of course. Takes about two weeks for a package to get her from the East Coast. It'd either be stale or moldy. Makes me want to throw up just thinking about it.

Oh, well, gotta save tummy space for protein and prenatal vitamins.

Looking forward to your books!

Nathalie Mallet said...

Hi Kimber An,

I will send you a copy of The King’s Daughters as soon as the book is released, promise! Thank you for your patience.


Cheers,
Nathalie

Kimber An said...

But, but, I waaaant it nnnowww!
(sigh)
Okay, I'll wait.
;)
Thanks for popping in!

Kimber An,

Hope you stop the spewing part pre-mommess soon.

I've never been pregnant but when I was on chemo on the down days of the cycle any little change in smell could set out bouts of nausea despite the meds. Even someone walking by chewing gum, or my husband kissing me after having washed his hands with dial soft-soap, could set me off so I have buckets of sympathy for the constant random bouts of wishing to turn inside out.

When are you due? I jones to knit baby stuff, especially hats, which has grown into a small side business for me. I'm superstitius about making something for people I know before their baby is born, but I'd love to send you something. I make a few bucks selling the stuff I design but I get an even bigger emotional kick out of knowing my knitwear is keeping people warm.

Kimber Chin said...

Hey, I'm an accountant
and I'm an alpha.
Big assumption, girl, BIG!
LOL

Thanks for the shout out.
Hopefully some up and coming historical romance authors will send me their eBooks!
(grinning)

Oh, you're right. Well, that's double-good because I love it when stereotypes are dashed to bits.

Thanks, Mary!
I'm not stating my due date on the Internet for personal security reasons. To make it even more confusing, I never give birth anywhere near my due date.
