Glimpsing Shadows

A Glimpse of DarknessSince I’m getting back on schedule, this will be the last news post for September as I’ll be starting to work on the next Escapist Newsletter so I can have that up by the 1st.

Dark Faerie Tales posted the cover for A Glimpse of Darkness and I thought it was going to be another fabulous anthology. I mean, check out the authors involved – Lara Adrian, Harry Connolly, Kelly Meding, Stacia Kane, and Lucy A. Snyder – lots of potential, right? Guess what, it’s not an anthology, but a “fan-driven, multi-authored, chain story, where readers have the chance to decide the outcome of a wholly original paranormal story”. The first chapter was written by Lara Adrian (author of Taken By Midnight) and at the end, readers were able to decide what would happen next. Well, the second chapter is now available and was written by Harry Connolly (author of Game of Cages).


Katie MacAlister is looking for suggestions…well, ideas as to who she should write a short story about for Penguin Putnam’s November Paranormal Page.

Dark Faerie Tales has another fabulous Books to Watch (aka Publishing News) and Reel Time News posts.

Check out what you can now buy online – it’s the soundtrack to Outlander: The Musical.

ShadowspellJenna Black has unveiled the cover and official blurb for her second Fairewalker novel, Shadowglass, which will be out January 4, 2011. Plus, in her latest newsletter, Jenna also mentioned that Sirensong will be the title for the third novel.

On top of spending most of her time in a bunkerlike safe house and having her dates hijacked by a formidable Fae bodyguard, Faeriewalker Dana Hathaway is in for some more bad news: the Erlking and his pack of murderous minions known as the Wild Hunt have descended upon Avalon. With his homicidal appetite and immortal powers, the Erlking has long been the nightmare of the Fae realm. A fragile treaty with the Faerie Queen, sealed with a mysterious spell, is the one thing that keeps him from hunting unchecked in Avalon, the only place on Earth where humans and Fae live together. Which means Dana’s in trouble, since it’s common knowledge that the Faerie Queen wants her – and her rare Faeriewalker powers – dead. The smoldering, sexy Erlking’s got his sights set on Dana, but does he only seek to kill her, or does he have something much darker in mind?

I am a 30-something SAHM with two adorable boys and a supportive husband who is very tolerant of my reading addiction. I love to read and easily go through about a dozen books a month – well I did before I had kids. Now, not so much. After my first son was born, I began to take my hobby of reviewing a little more serious and started Literary Escapism to help with my sanity. I love to discuss the fabulous novels I’ve read and meeting all the wonderful people in the book blogging community has been amazing.
