Author Appearances:

MBardsley-Now or NeverThe Smart Chicks Tour is coming to Lansing, Michigan and Schuler Books & Music is selling tickets for the event.  Basically, instead of having people preorder books, they are charging everyone $5 and then you’ll get it back as a gift card the day of the event.  It’s simply to get a ticket for the line and only the first 100 tickets sold are guaranteed seats.  If you’re going (and I’m expecting all of my SE MI peeps to be there), I would get your tickets soon.

Would you like a signed personalized copy of Leanna Renee Heiber’s new upcoming young adult novel, Darker Still?  Guess what, you can not only get one, but also support an independent bookstore at the same time.  Leanna has all the details here, but if you want the quick version, contact WORD Bookstore in Brooklyn, New York City.

The latest Moon Daughters comic, featuring the girls from Yasmine Galenorn’s Otherworld series, is now out.

If you haven’t read Jeaniene Frost’s Halfway to the Grave, the beginning of Cat & Bones, then now is your chance.  From now until October 25th, Halfway to the Grave is only $1.99 and it even includes never-before-seen deleted scenes.

Stumbling Over Chaos has another fabulous Misadventures in Stock Photography, this time featuring Lounging in Bed Buy (LiBG).

Are you a fan of Christine Feehan’s Ghostwalker series?  Have you been waiting for an update?  Wicked Scribes has recently uncovered a bit of information (like the next book will be about Thorn) and she is totally sharing it.

Tez Says has the scoop on a bunch of new publishing deals including one for Melissa Marr’s new YA short story collection, Rags & Bones, which will feature authors Neil Gaiman, Lev Grossman, Kelley Armstrong, & Carrie Ryan.

There are always more fabulous covers that have been popping up. To see them all, head over to facebook, where I’ve added them to the FB album for your viewing pleasure.

A new trailer has been posted for the upcoming Breaking Dawn: Part 1 movie.  There’s a few more scenes than what we’ve seen previously and it definitely gives us more of an idea as to Bella and Edward’s wedding celebration.

About Jackie 3273 Articles
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.
