While updating the author pages last night, there are a couple of tidbits that came my way…
- There has been a slight change in title for the fifth Charley Davidson book from Darynda Jones. Looks like Fifth Grave Off the Beaten Path will now be called Fifth Grave Past the Light.
- Cynthia Eden has a new e-book novella release that I had no idea about. Bleed for Me has the potential to expand into a new series called Loved by Gods, if the interest is there.
- This isn’t so much an update as a personal plea – please, please don’t let the heroine of Kresley Cole‘s MacRieve (Uilleam’s story) be that hideously repulsive Doctor that had the hots for Aiden on the Island. I get the vibe that she didn’t really die, and she needs to. Stat.
- I like reading Ilona Andrews‘ blog. They tend to say things as they are, good or bad. For a while, it seemed like The Edge series was ending with the release of Steel’s Edge on November 27th. Looks like it might get a second coming at some point down the line, but for now they will be focusing pretty exclusively on Kate and Kate World books for the next year and a half (not that that can be called a bad thing. At all). So, the schedule from next year on will look something like Kate Daniels #6, Kate Daniels World #2 (Jim and Dali), Kate Daniels #7. If there is demand for Andrea and Raphael’s story to continue (and of course there will be), it will probably fall after Kate #7. They are also not locked into ending Kate Daniels at #7 books, so there is the potential for even more books, story permitting. All of this is great news, but I was surprised that there was no firm plans for a Gunmetal Magic sequel.
- and finally, the pre-order links for Gena Showalter‘s second Angels of the Dark book, Beauty Awakened, are up on Amazon – along with the blurb…
His name is Koldo. He is scarred, powerful, his control legendary-and he lives only for vengeance, determined to punish the angel who viciously removed his wings. But if he yields to the forces of hatred, he will be kicked from the heavens, eternally damned.
She is his last hope. Nicola Lane was born with a defective heart, yet this fragile human shows surprising strength as demons stalk her every move, determined to end her. She is the key to Koldo’s deliverance…and his downfall. Though he fights duty, destiny and his first addictive taste of desire, his toughest battle will be the one for Nicola’s life-even if he has to sacrifice his own….
Beauty Awakened will be released on February 26th.
