Random Chattering

27 July 2008 Jackie 1

I have to hand it to Amber, I tend to find some really great items over at her site. This time around, artist Rachel Anderson. It’s a bit feminine, but completely fantastical and I like her work. If I had a little girl at home, I think I would know where to look for room decorations. However, I have a boy and now I’m floundering.

Amber also happens to have an interview and contest with Ms. Jenna Black. Her new novel, The Devil You Know, is out Tuesday (yea!) and you have a chance to win it with Amber (or the first novel if you have been under a rock and haven’t checked out The Devil Inside).

Warrior & Witch by M. Brennan

27 July 2008 Jackie 0

Warrior and Witch by Marie Brennan is the second novel in the Doppelganger series. Just so people don’t get confused, this same novel is also known as Witch. Why the change… My publisher wants them to have continued life; the reissue is timed for two months after the release of […]

Grimspace by A. Aguirre

25 July 2008 Jackie 3

Have you ever found a novel that isn’t in your normal comfort zone, and yet when you read it, you can’t put it down? Grimspace, by Ann Aguirre was like that for me. I don’t have anything against science fiction, but there are some novels that are just a bit […]

Don’t Hex with Texas by S. Swendson

24 July 2008 Jackie 1

The fourth novel in the Katie Chandler series by Shanna Swendson, Don’t Hex with Texas, takes place a couple of months after Damsel Under Stress and it is just as good as all the others. Katie Chandler has fled fast-paced Manhattan and returned home to a simpler life, working at […]

Pride

24 July 2008 Jackie 1

Look what Rachel Vincent got in the mail over the weekend. It’s the cover for Pride which isn’t due out until early next year. I like it, but there’s just something about it that doesn’t say the same thing a Stray and Rogue. Then again, maybe I just didn’t get […]

The Great Revelation

23 July 2008 Jackie 1

HBO has finally produced a poster for the True Blood series that is due out in September. It’s actually really pretty and you really can’t read the tagline from here, but it says “Thou shall not crave thy neighbor”. I think it actually works with the novels. What do you […]

Witchling by Y. Galenorn

22 July 2008 Jackie 7

So I finally did it. I’ve been hearing about Yasmine Galenorn’s Otherworld series for awhile now and I just finished the first novel, Witchling. The story itself is unique and yet it’s not. There seems to be a lot of things that ring familiar in my head, yet I can’t […]

Tor.com is giving away a lot of free e-books… now that the life of our doughty little holding page is drawing to a close (shed a tear), we thought we’d make everything we gave away there–all the novels, all of the desktop wallpaper–available for one additional week, starting today and […]
