Crescending News

The RT Booklovers Convention is just around the corner and Rayna over at Naughty Editions has already scoped out the Hyatt.  I’m still hoping that I’ll be able to show up on Saturday for the massive book fair since it’s only 4 hours away, but we’ll have to see.

All Things Urban Fantasy has found the cover for Becca Fitzpatrick’s Crescendo, the follow up to Hush, Hush.  The cover reveal was actual done at the Denver Teen Lit Festival via sidewalk chalk by Laurie Maves, which in itself is fabulous.  I have to say, I love this cover.  Especially the red feather.  Crescendo comes out November 16, 2010.

The Book Smugglers have kicked off the second edition of their Steampunk Appreciation Week.

Suvudu would like to remind everyone that Neil Gaiman will be speaking, both in person and online, tonight from 6-8pm EST in celebration of National Library Week.  There will be a video streaming the live event and if you want to ask Neil a question, just hit up gaimanatjcpl.org.

  • Jennifer Estep has two short stories frrom her Elemental Assassin’s series – Web of Death takes place in between the events of Spider’s Bite and Web of Lies and focuses on what hap­pens when Gin gets some unex­pected vis­i­tors one night and Web of Deceit is another pre­quel story about Gin’s first solo job as the Spi­der when she was a teenager and is told from Fletcher Lane’s point of view.

Yeah, that’s all you’re getting because there’s that many great stuff and Doug says it soo much better than me.  Make sure you check out his Weekend Report.

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.
