So, I have been busy the last couple of hours playing around with some behind the scenes stuff, and I thought I should let you know there have been a few changes. They won’t matter to most people, but I am mentioning it on the off chance you go looking for something and can’t find it.
First off, I mentioned that since I was quitting the Arcana Chronicles series from Kresley Cole, I was also giving up the character guide. That has been deleted, along with a couple of others that I enjoyed but just didn’t feel like updating anymore – one is the Shadowhunters guide for Cassandra Clare‘s multiple series, and the other is the Rock Kiss series guide from Nalini Singh. On the Shadowhunters front, I have moved on from YA and don’t want to “have to” read it if I don’t feel like it, and Rock Kiss doesn’t fit the overall PNR/UF theme I have going on so I let it go, too.
I also deleted a few author pages. Tastes change, interests change, and having almost 30 different pages to try and keep updated and edited on a weekly basis was a bit over the top. I did delete the Cassandra Clare page, again because I am not doing young adult too much anymore, and that same reason made me say goodbye to the Richelle Mead section, too. Larissa Ione hasn’t really had much to mentioned for quite a while now, so that one was just taking up space, and I stopped reading Lara Adrian way back when so her page is gone, too. PhoenixFyre has a great character guide for The Midnight Breed that I definitely didn’t want to go to waste, so I moved it HERE.
There was other stuff I could’ve dumped, too, but I decided to wait and see. Maybe I am getting lazy, or just more realistic, but I don’t want this blog to turn into work. I spend a lot of time on it, but it is time I enjoy. When there are things that I start to dread, or have to force myself to do, then it is time to let those things go. I still have plans to add other guides, maybe new authors as I find them, but for now this will keep me busy.
I have been holding a few of these back for a while now, waiting to get enough to make a decent post. Let’s start with one that will be out really, really soon. Or rather, out again. A few of Ilona Andrews previous novellas are being re-released in e-format, and Magic Gifts is due out… Continue reading Cover Lover – 8 New Titles
It has been a while since I have done any housekeeping around here (er, around my house, either, but that is another story). I did manage to get one target reached recently, though. Originally I had done a guide for the Sisters of the Heart series, but since it felt like that was half the… Continue reading Site Updates…
I owe a big thanks to Phyllis Mayes, who sent over some Thea Harrison news. It looks like Shadow’s End, which is due out December 1st, will be the last traditionally published Elder Races book. The series, however, will continue with a new story arc and at least three more books. Thea is one of… Continue reading Spotlight on…Thea Harrison
I have to start off by saying I can take absolutely no credit for this. My sole contribution was to hit the cut/paste buttons. PheonixFyre was kind enough to once again share with us one of her character guides, this time for Sherrilyn Kenyon‘s Chronicles of Nick series. She has already contributed guides for Lara… Continue reading Chronicles of Nick Character Guide
Last year, Lara Adrian announced that she was leaving traditional publishing and striking out on the self-pubbed route. She assured everyone that nothing would change with her popular Midnight Breed series, except that it would no longer be offered in hardcover format. I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical, but it looks like… Continue reading Spotlight on…Bound to Darkness
Once again, it was time to do my duty and update the author pages. In the process, there were a few things that came to light. Beware, though, there will be what can be called major spoilers at the end, but it will be marked. Several times. You can’t unsee that sucker, much as I… Continue reading From the Author Pages…Bad News, No News, and Spoilers
As we head into another year, it is time to take a look back at what stood out in 2014. Most of my choices will surprise no one, since I have my favorites and I am not shy about going on, and on, and on about them, but it never hurts to give a shout… Continue reading 2014…A Year in Review
Just a little bit of random book info… If you were a fan of the recent C.L. Wilson release The Winter King, there is another book on the way called The Sea King. As of right now, it is scheduled for release on July 28th… From the author of THE WINTER KING comes a breathtaking… Continue reading This and That…
For the last little while, I have been noticing a slight change in my reading habits – or rather, in who I have been looking forward to reading. As I have bored everyone with for the last few weeks, my total disinterest in Kresley Cole‘s Dark Skye is something that I never, ever would’ve saw… Continue reading Love Them, Love Them Not…
