Author Appearances:

Rachel Vincent has revealed the cover for her third Bound novel, Oath Bound, as well as the blurb:

RVincent-Oath BoundThe Tower Syndicate will fall… 
The secret daughter of the head of an infamous Skilled crime family, Sera Brandt has hidden her past, her potential and especially her powers. But when a tragedy strikes her other family, Sera needs justice. And the only way to get it is to reveal her heritage– including a rare Skill– and take the reins of the Tower Syndicate from her cunning and malicious aunt.

If he can figure out how…
Kristopher Daniels might have the answer. He’s fought the syndicate to protect his sisters, but he’d never realized just how close to the new heir he needed to get….

And if they can survive
Neither is used to trusting. But there’s something between them that can’t be ignored. And now Sera is on the run with a man she can’t figure out, a target on her back, and the new knowledge of just how powerful she really is….

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

Jaye Wells has some fabulous  news.  She’s sold a new series and has been contracted for three novels.  There will also be two new Sabina Kane e-novellas

The PROSPERO’S WAR series focuses on an ambitious cop, named Kate Prospero, whose goal is to rid the streets of the covens that sell addictive dirty magic. I pitched it to Orbit as “The Wire with wizards.” The first book will be titled DIRTY MAGIC (Fall 2013).

Parajunkee’s View has another edition of Blogging 101 and this time she’s tackling that dreaded TBR pile. I know mine is terrible and only gets bigger by the day, so I’m curious to she how Rachel deals with hers.

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.
