I did a little snooping over at Goodreads, and came up with a few new covers. This first one is from the upcoming new series called League of the Black Swan by Alyssa Day. The first book, The Cursed, will be released on May 7th.
The Anita Blake series from Laurell K. Hamilton rolls on next June 4th with the release of Affliction.
Richelle Mead starts up her new Age of X series with the release of Gameboard of the Gods, due out on June 4th.
I have been updating the new release pages over the last week or so, and there were a few things that popped up worth noting…
Kate Daniels 6 now officially has a name, and any info on an upcoming Ilona Andrews‘ book is a good thing. Magic Rises will be released next July.
It looks like the next Morganville Vampire book from Rachel Caine will be called Fall of Night, and it will be released in hardcover on May 7th.
Jean Johnson will be writing what appears to be a spin-off of her Sons of Destiny series. This one is called Guardians of Destiny, and the first book is The Tower, which should be released on June 4th.
Looks like the Zombies are back. White Trash Zombie Apocalypse, the third book of Diana Rowland‘s White Trash Zombies series, will be released early next year.
Book number 22 (if I remember correctly) of Laurell K. Hamilton‘s Anita Blake series will be called Affliction. Look for it in hardcover on June 4th.
The next Yasmine Galenorn Indigo Court book, Night Vision, will be coming out on July 2nd.
Book two of Kris DeLake‘s Assassin’s Guild series, Killer Rivals, will be released on July 1st.
Donna Grant will have at least four more titles in her Dark Warriors series. Midnight’s Kiss will be out on June 4th, and Midnight’s Captive will be out June 25th, with two more to follow later in the year.
Alexandra Ivy‘s new series, called The Sentinels, will start off with a novella in the anthology Predatory. It also features Nina Bangs, Dianne Duvall and Hannah Jayne, and it is due out on May 7th.
The third book of Jessica Shirvington‘s The Violet Eden Chronicles, Emblaze, will be out on March 1st.
Cold Copper is the title of the next Age of Steam novel from Devon Monk, and it will be on the shelves on July 2nd.
I finished my third read of the second Darynda Jones Charley Davidson book, Second Grave on the Left, and I will update the character guide for it by tomorrow night. I had read both books two and three once for enjoyment, and then once for the guides. Then I deleted all of the notes I had made, so this is actually round three. I want to have them updated by the time Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet hits the shelves on October 30th. Also, the Thea Harrison novella Hunter’s Season (I hate e-books) slipped by me, and that will be added to the Elder Races guide within the next couple of days, as well. WordPress has been bitchy and not updating properly, so I had to take a bit of a break. That will hopefully get back to normal tomorrow.
Well, this is a post about a bunch of…stuff. You know, not enough to have its own post, but rattling around in my head bugging me that it has to be said? Looks like strange info-dump time, with no theme…
first of all, I noticed that Wicked Scribes doesn’t work in Internet Explorer very well. Things look funky sometimes, and fixing them for IE made them look wonky in in Firefox. So, if you have the choice, Firefox is the way to go.
um, yeah. I am in the process of adding e-books to the author pages and their reading lists. New sections will be added, especially for authors like Ilona Andrews and Jeaniene Frost. I haven’t tackled adding e-books to the new release pages yet, since I figure that will take a good long while and I have to track the suckers down first.
the Elder Races Character Guide has now been updated to include Storm’s Heart (on the day The Book Depository shipped out Serpent’s Kiss, no less). I will be starting the re-read of Archangel’s Blade tomorrow, and hope to have the Guild Hunter Guide updated by the end of next week.
and on the book front…
looks like the next Anita Blake officially has a title now. Kiss the Dead will be the next book from Laurell K. Hamilton, and is due out on June 5th.
and Andrea’s book now has a name, as well. The first book from Ilona Andrews‘ spin-off from the Kate Daniels series will be called Gunmetal Magic. Look for it next May.
I was hoping for the next Christine Feehan Ghostwalker book next March, but seems like Thorn’s story will now be pushed back to July. Blech.
looks like Lover Reborn might be getting a cover-makeover. The original version of the J.R. Ward book has been pulled recently from the publisher’s site, so here’s hoping. Dude was fugly.
I think that is about it. Still looking for covers for Once Bitten, Bear Meets Girl, and a few others. I do love my hunting…
Number 2o from Laurell K. Hamilton‘s Anita Blake series, Hit List, now has a cover. This one should be available on June 7th, and I must say I am not really sure about this one. Part of me likes it…and part doesn’t.
Seems to be a lot of action on the charts for the whole paranormal genre this week. Some, like Charlaine Harris and MaryJanice Davidson seem glued to it, but it is nice to see Christina Dodd placing with Chains of Ice, and Gena Showalter for her second week withThe Darkest Lie. Nalini Singh‘s latest Psy-Changeling book, Bonds of Justice, comes in at number 14, followed by Sherrilyn Kenyon‘s In Other Worlds at 15.
There isn’t much mystery on the hardcover side of things. Urban Fantasy rules with Charlaine Harris on her tenth week with Dead In The Family. She is joined by MaryJanice Davidson with Undead and Unfinished, and Laurell K. Hamilton with Bullet.
Not a lot of change on this one…both Laurell K. Hamilton and Charlaine Harris have seemingly taken over the lists, both hardcover and softcover, and don’t appear to be going anywhere. Ever. Gena Showalter places well with her latest, The Darkest Passion.
On the hardcover side, it is again Hamilton and Harris, but with Jacqueline Carrey thrown into the mix with Naamah’s Curse.
