Cover Lover – 7 New Titles

It seems I haven’t been finding that many covers that catch my eye lately – or maybe things are just slow this time of year. Either way, I grabbed this first one from All Things Urban Fantasy, so many thanks. It is from the White Trash Zombie series by Diana Rowland. White Trash Zombie Apocalypse will be released on July 2nd.

This next one was a surprise. For some reason, there will be a re-release of Gena Showalter‘s The Darkest Angel (Lysander and Bianka’s story), along with the story Shadow Hunter by Kait Ballenger. This duology will be called After Dark, and it will be released on June 25th.

Cover Lover – 7 New Titles

After getting behind the last week or so, I debated about going back and tracking down what covers I had missed, but it didn’t seem like too many at all.  This batch is a bit on the bigger side, with a couple of good ones.  Devon Monk continues her Allie Beckstrom series with the release of Magic for a Price on November 6th.

This one is from author Caris RoaneGates of Rapture is the 6th book in her Guardians of Ascension series, due out on December 26th.

Hmm, nice.  The cover is out for the second book in Stephanie Tyler‘s Eternal Wolf Clan series, Dire Wants.  This one will be released on November 6th.

Beth Ciotta starts up a new series this November called The Glorious Victorious Darcys.  Book one will be called Her Sky Cowboy.

Werewolf in Denver is the next book from Vicki Lewis Thompson‘s Wild About You series, which is due out on October 2nd.

And this final one is from author Maurissa Guibord.  I haven’t heard anything about Revel yet, other than that it is Young Adult, and will be released in hardcover on February 12th.

Cover Lover – 7 New Titles

I wasn’t expecting to find many covers on today’s hunt, so I was pleasantly surprised to come up with 7.  It seems to have been a bit of a dry spell lately, but hopefully there will be some new release info coming out soon, too.

The cover is out for the next book from Lexi George, Demon Hunting in the Deep South, which is due out on July 31st.

Werewolf in Seattle, the next Wild About You novel from Vicki Lewis Thompson, has a release date of April 3rd.

On June 5th, Amanda Ashley will be releasing a new book called His Dark Embrace.  I am not sure if this is part of a larger series.

J.D. Tyler continues her new Alpha Pack series with the release of Savage Awakening, due out on April 3rd.

Number five is from the almost-finished Final Prophecy series from Jessica AndersenMagic Unchained is the next to last book, and should be available on April 3rd.

Tami Dane recently started a new series featuring profiler Sloan Skye.  Blood of Innocence is the second book, due out on June 5th.

And the last one is on the Young Adult side of things.  Julie Kagawa starts her new Blood of Eden series on April 24th with the release of The Immortal Rules.

Penguin e-Specials

This is me, sighing.  I am so behind the times.  Turns out that Penguin Publishing has something called e-Specials, and several popular paranormal series have entries in it.  I had no clue.  Not sure if everyone else is ahead of me (er, probably), but I decided to list a few that might appeal…

  • Katie MacAlister has a story called Unleashed, and it is part of her Dark Ones series.
  • Red Blooded is a Gods of Midnight e-novella from Deidre Knight.
  • Never actually heard much about these, but Sunny has a story called Mona Lisa Three, and it is part of her Monere series.
  • This one may also be available in a print version anthology, (if I am not completely nuts), but Magic Mourns from Ilona Andrews is also available in the e-special format.
  • From Virginia Kantra comes a Children of the Earth story, called Midsummer Night’s Magic.
  • Wild About You is a new series from Vicki Lewis Thompson, and it features a short called Werewolf in Greenwich Village.
  • I have been looking forward to the new Heather Killough-Walden Lost Angels series, and I believe Always, Angel is a prequel story.
  • Moon Dance is the name of the Mageverse novella from Angela Knight.
  • From the world of Deborah Cooke‘s Dragonfire series comes Harmonia’s Kiss.
  • Eternal Embers is set in the Dragon’s Heat world, written by Tessa Adams.

There were a couple that were unrelated to the Penguin published ones above…

  • Charley Davidson returns in the short For I Have Sinned, written by Darynda Jones.
  • Early Girl Gets the Blood Wolf is a story by Michele Bardsley, part of her Broken Heart series.
  • Alyssa Day will have a Warriors of Poseidon novella coming out in October called Alejandro’s Sorceress, but I can’t seem to find any info about it other than on her official site.
  • and the upcoming Eternal Wolf Clan trilogy from Stephanie Tyler will get a prequel in the form of Dire Warning.  Again, no links available as yet.

I am not quite sure how adding the e-books to the new release pages will go, since there are just so darn many of them, and the suckers are proving slippery to track down with any sort of finesse.  It is sort of hit and miss, actually, unless I just haven’t managed to perfect my technique as yet.  What I will be doing is adding the e-books to the reading lists for any of the series already featured here, like the ones listed above.  Might take a while to get them all added, but should be straight forward enough to find.  It is a start, anyways.

Book News…

I get so excited when I get that first little tidbit of info about a series I love, and I found a biggie today (of course, I will leave it for last).

  • Dakota Cassidy will be adding to her Accidental Friends series with the release of book number six.  Accidentally Dead, Again is due out June 5th.
  • The Blood Moon Trilogy from Karin Tabke kicked off earlier this year with the release of Blood Law, and that book had what has to be one of the biggest, most shocking cliff-hanger endings I had seen in a long, long time.  But now Amazon is listing a book called Blood Vow as a June 5th release.  That was not originally one of the titles of the three books, so I don’t know if it is a re-name of the second or third books, or something new from the series altogether.  I just know I will be grabbing it, no matter what.  There has been no updating on the author’s site or blog, but I will update when I have more info.
  • Darkness Devours, the third book in Keri Arthur‘s new Dark Angels series, will be released on June 5th, as well.
  • The Lost Angels is a new series soon to start from author Heather Killough-Walden, and info is already starting to emerge about the second book.  Messenger’s Angel will also be released on June 5th.
  • There is also a bit of news about Regan Hastings‘ Awakening series.  Book three will be called Visions of Chains, and is due out next June.
  • Vicki Lewis Thompson‘s third Wild About You novel will be called Werewolf in Seattle, and is also scheduled for release next June 5th.


  • the preorder links are up at Amazon for the next Nalini Singh Psy/Changeling book.  Riaz and Adria’s story will be called Tangle of Need, and will be available on May 29th.  Or,  you know, 288 days from today.  Not that I counted.  Really.

Random Updates

Been a while since one of these.  Not a ton to report, but still something…
