German Shadow Kiss

This week (kind of) in books

Today is a great day because I sent in the Succubus Revealed manuscript to my editor. Like all manuscripts, it still needs polishing and editing, but the bulk of the work on it is done, which is a really wonderful feeling. And, in fate's funny way, I also just received a bunch of cover flats for SR, which really brings us full circle. My scanner's being a bit temperamental, but I should be able to have things up and running tomorrow so that you can see the cover to Georgina's last adventure.

I'm behind in giving shout-outs to all of my author pals who had new releases last week. Considering I was three days late in blogging about my own new release last week, I guess it's not that bad. Anyway, Iron Crowned was in very good company. Here's a quick rundown of what else is on the bookshelves.

In the world of adult paranormal fiction...

Green-Eyed Demon by Jaye Wells is the third book in the Sabina Kane series, featuring a half-vampire, half-mage kickass heroine. Her sidekick is a demon who looks like a hairless cat and--wait for it--actually has his own Twitter page. Jaye and I will be teaching a workshop in Dallas soon, so stay tuned for details.

Dead Waters by Anton Strout is the next installment in his Simon Canderous series. Simon has the blessing(?) of being a psychometrist, meaning when he touches something, he knows its history. New Yorkers can see Anton signing with Amber Benson at Midtown Comics Downtown on March 5 at 1pm.

How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf by Molly Harper Normally, I'd attempt some summary of my own, but nothing I could write is better than this blurb I found: "Even in Grundy, Alaska, it’s unusual to find a naked guy with a bear trap clamped to his ankle on your porch." 'Nuff said.

And, over in the young adult section...

The Iron Thorn by Caitlin Kittredge Remember when I said iron books were hot? This is my pal Caitlin's much-anticipated steampunk YA debut about a girl fighting a family curse, which says she'll go insane on her 16th birthday. It's set in an alternate Lovecraftian Boston, where technology rules and all things magical are condemned...but certainly aren't gone.

Falling Under by Gwen Hayes Gwen's debut YA is actually out tomorrow, so I'm ahead of the game on this one. It's about a girl who literally meets a hot guy she's been dreaming about when he becomes a student at her school. Whether he's a dream come true or presents danger to her remains to be seen... Washingtonians can see Gwen read and sign in Seattle and Port Angeles.

Okay, there are tons more that came out last week (and this week), but that's what I've got for now. So if you're looking for reading material, plenty abounds! Tomorrow I'll have the next Georgina cover for you. :)
