Wild Light by M. Liu

17 September 2010 Tricia 2

I had only read the first book in the Hunter Kiss series by Marjorie Liu (and it was a while ago) before picking up Wild Light, and I actually really regret skipping ahead. I was really confused in several places and I am sure it had nothing to do with […]

Bookish Songs

2 April 2010 Jackie 1

Is it me or is this not a gorgeous cover? Suvudu released the cover for the George RR Martin anthology Songs of Love and Death and I so want it! Take into consideration some of the names that are tied to this project – Diana Gabaldon, Carrie Vaugh, Marjorie Liu and Robin Hobb – you just know it’s going to be fabulous. Songs of Love and Death comes out in November 16, 2010, but if you want a sneak peek at the stories, Suvudu has the table of contents as well.

Io9 has a really fascinating article on the Google Book Settlement. They go into a lot of details, including how it all began, and it’s great for anyone who is trying to figure this out. I get how it’s bad for authors, as well as being good, and I can’t say if io9 has a particular slate, but there’s a lot of information if you want it.

Mermaids & Shadowy Angels

7 January 2010 Jackie 9

I dislike putting up news post without at least one image, so since there wasn’t any new book covers (that I saw), I went hunting for a few new fantasy images. I love it when I go looking because I always tend to find someone really hot. This time around it is Yuehui Tang. Check this out….isn’t it awesome? And he has more, which I’ll be adding throughout the post.

Katiebabs has an excellent post on what authors should expect from book review blogs. The article came about because an author requested a review site to no longer mention their book. I’m not sure I understand the author’s reasoning since I thought it was better for a book to be talked about, whether it’s good or bad, then not at all. Check out the article; it has some really good points in it.

Marjorie Liu is giving readers the chance to pick what Long Nu, a beloved character from Tiger Eye, will look like in the new RPG game Tiger Eye. There are four drawings by four different artists and the winning concept will be transferred to the game. In more Liu news, Orbit has released the UK covers for the first three Hunters Kiss novels. The covers look hot!

Shadow Touch by M. Liu

8 October 2008 Jackie 4

The second novel in Marjorie Liu’s Dirk & Steele series, Shadow Touch was a really good read.  When I first read Tiger Eye, I wasn’t all that impressed (it reminded me too much of Fantasy Lover by Sherrilyn Kenyon), but after reading Shadow Touch, I can say that has changed. […]

Tiger Eye by M. Liu

3 September 2008 Jackie 3

I’ve been hearing a lot about Marjorie Liu and her Dirk & Steele series, so when I saw the first novel, Tiger Eye, at the used book store, I picked it up. I pride myself on being honest and I have to say, this story really didn’t do much for […]
