Author Appearances:

BGriffin-Masque of the Read DeathThere are always more fabulous covers popping up. To see them all, head over to facebook, where I’ve added them to the FB album for your viewing pleasure.

I’ve finally gotten the New Releases page updated. A printable version of the New Releases page was requested on facebook awhile back and that is now available.

PC & Kristen Cast have some fantastic news. Their House of Night series has been picked up by Samuel Davis Films to be a film franchise. Well a movie for sure, but Davis sees the potential for the franchise. Everything is still in development, so no there’s no tentative release date, director, cast, etc announced yet; but there will be in the future and that’s what counts.

Rachel Vincent has announced the title for her new Soul Screamers novella. Never to Sleep that will take place during If I Die and the narrator is still unknown. However, Rachel does answer a few questions about Never to Sleep.

Rachel Caine will be back in Michigan TONIGHT, but this time over on the west side of the state in Muskegon.

Dark Faerie Tales is looking for some help. If you’ve ever wanted to try your hand at reviewing, and doing it for a great site, make sure you head over and fill out DFT’s application form.

Wicked Scribes has posted a couple of different updates on book release dates. I’ve already included these in the latest New Releases page update.

There’s been lots of cover blurbs being posted lately and Lauren Dane has the newest with her Chaos Burning synopsis.

The life of Lark Jaansen, hunter in Clan Gennessee, has been shaped by violence and unrest—and it defines her future. Well-trained and resilient, she’s met her militaristic match in Simon Leviathan, a warrior not of this world. Locked in mutual admiration, and a desire so hot it burns, Lark and Simon have something else in common: they love the dark, and as a shadow is cast over their world, they’re each coming into their own.

A mysterious war has been waged among the Others. As witches and humans turn against each other, as fae retreat in fear, and as vampires rise, Lark and Simon discover that an unseen force is behind it. A single, hungry entity older than recorded history has returned to gorge on the magick of his victims. He is the Magister, nothing less than the end of time. Finding him is Lark and Simon’s first hope. Surviving him is their last

SSingleton-Dark StormI am so not amused. What does Jeaniene Frost mean that Cat and Bones will end in nine books?! I don’t want them to end and I don’t remember hearing that they were going to. On the one hand, I understand the need to end a series while it’s still going strong, but it definitely saddens me. Thankfully we’ll have Vlad’s series to keep us company (and we’ve been promised more) and there are 3 more Cat & Bones books coming out before the end.

If you’ve been curious to see how Elijah Wood was going to be involved in The Hobbit, the prequel story that takes place 60 years before The Lord of the Ring, then look now further. Blastr has found out exactly what role he’ll be playing (or I should say Frodo) and it’s going to work well.

io9 has four new Breaking Dawn clips that show some key sequences in the film.

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.
