Author Appearances:

The Cassie Palmer series by Karen chance is one of my favorites and I’ve been really hesitate to get rid of my Cassie novels since I would have to buy them for the Kindle almost immediately and I was thinking tat was going to be expensive.  Guess what!  It’s not.  The first four novels – Touch the Dark, Claimed by Shadow, Embrace the Night and Curse the Dawn – are being sold as a collection for $7.50.  Now that is a deal!  Not to be outdone, the first three novels in Gail Carriger’s Parasol Protectorate series – SoullessChangeless and Blameless – are being sold for $10.  And just as a hint – both of these series will be featured Bookish Escape discussion, so here’s your chance to be ready.

And because I can’t resist a great deal, both Amazon and Kindle have Jana Oliver’s The Demon Trapper’s Daughter for $2.99 right now.

With all the fabulous genre shows right now, there’s a lot to chose from if you want some good CGI effects and io9 have listed their top 10 CGI characters.

Lauren Danehas posted the blurb for the final Phantom Corp novel, Captivated, which is due out May 2012.

Vincenz Fardelle, exiled son of the Supreme Leader of the Imperialist Universe, has spent much of the last ten years working to stop the threat his father poses. But he’s not alone in his quest. Julian Marsters has lost his best friend and countless others in the war and has made vengeance his only goal. In each other, Julian and Vincenz find not only like minds, but kindred spirits.

However unexpected their relationship, everything changes for Vincenz and Julian when Hannah Black comes into their lives. Having been captured and held in near total isolation by imperialist troops, their immediate response is to protect her.

Emotionally shattered but resilient, Hannah rebuilds herself. Because of the warm safety she finds in the arms of Julian—and Vincenz she becomes someone harder, stronger and bent on preventing the Imperialists from harming anyone else.

For the two men, wrestling with their passionate feelings for Hannah is only the beginning. War is about to send all three into harm’s way and an equally dangerous secret could tear them apart.

So I don’t normally embed book trailers because they take up a lot of space (I post them on the FB page instead), but Orbit made a badass one for Brent Week’s new novel, The Black Prism, which releases. Seriously, I want to see the movie now. *grin*

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.
