Well, sometimes timing just works out perfectly. Last night I finished up the quick little character guide for the first book of The Innkeeper Chronicles, and today the first chapter of book two was upped on Ilona Andrews‘ site. This one is called Sweep in Peace, and as before, there will be a chapter upped roughly every week with hopefully another print version to follow at the end.
Also, for those who are impatiently awaiting the next Guild Hunter book Archangel’s Shadows, Nalini Singh upped a small excerpt featuring Janvier and Ashwini. Since this is of course one of my most anticipated releases for this year, I was pretty happy to see a little something to tide me over.
On the cover side of things, there are five new ones for today. This first one is the cover for the upcoming Sookie Stackhouse anthology featuring short stories from authors like Seanan McGuire, Rachel Caine and MaryJanice Davidson. Dead But Not Forgotten is due out on November 25th.
Cover #2 comes from Lexi Blake‘s Thieves series. Steal the Night is due out on June 3rd in e-format, with a print version to follow at a later date.
There are three young adult titles, too. Collide is the long delayed third book from Melissa West‘s The Taking series, and it is now set for a December 2nd release.
I must admit, I am digging this next cover. The Girl Who Never Was, from author Skylar Dorset, will be out on June 1st.
