CCrane-Head RushCarolyn Crane has posted the cover copy to her third Disillusiost novel, Head Rush, which will be available from Samhain on December 6th.

In an attempt to put her unhappy past behind her, Justine Jones throws herself into nursing school and planning her wedding to Otto Sanchez, the man of her dreams. But something is off. Random details aren’t adding up…and is it her imagination, or are her friends and fiancé keeping secrets from her? And what’s with this strange sense of unease, and her odd new headaches?

Justine tries to stay upbeat as Midcity cowers under martial law, sleepwalking cannibals, and a mysterious rash of paranormal copycat violence, but her search for answers leads her into the most dangerous mind game yet.
With the help of unlikely allies, including her paranoid dad and best frenemy Simon, Justine fights her ultimate foe…and unravels the most startling mystery of all.

Kim Harrison has announced the cities she’ll be visiting for her A Perfect Blood tour. This time she’s listing Detroit instead of Ann Arbor, so I’m hoping this means I won’t have as far to drive. *grin*

Jennifer Estep has announced the title to her seventh Elemental Assassin novel. The anticipated release date for Widow’s Web is September 2012 (so realistically, August 28th, 2012).

About Jackie 3282 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.
