Happy leap day and book stuff

Today is leap day! Time to do things you’ve been saving up for the last four years. Such as, go buy new books! Since it’s releasing early I’m posting my review of Nightborn here:

From my Goodreads, “Go pre-order this now. Yes, you, right now. This is vampire romance on steroids riding a Harley, with all the badassery and twice the heart. Fans of the Darkyn will love the reunion with old friends and those new to the series will appreciate the author’s deft breadcrumbing to orient readers to who’s who without slowing down the high-adrenaline plot. Simone and Korvel remain at the center of the story throughout but the supporting cast and secondary storylines make this novel bigger, faster, stronger. Did I mention the steroids? Go! Buy!”

See, I could post an early review because I got an ARC. But now people can buy it early. Or wait until next week when you can also buy the new Patricia Briggs book, AND the first book in a new series that also started shipping early and I would hate to see die as a result: Discount Armageddon.

It’s up to you.

But happy leap day and as for me, next week is book shopping GOLD. In the meantime, if you haven’t been reading Shiloh Walker’s cliff-hanging ASH trilogy, the third book came out yesterday. Reading all 3 will keep you busy until March 6. And sleepless.

5 Thursday Things

Not much blogging lately due to the sudden attack of plague in the Teglia household, i.e. 2 kids got ear infections, the other one plus a parent got strep throat, and as the non-medicated family member I’ve been running around taking temperatures and administering juice and antibiotics. So in lieu of a real blog, 5 Thursday Things:

1. Lynn Viehl aka PBW aka many other pen names is doing a huge giveaway including a chance for an ARC of Nightborn! Go forth and enter.

2. Alison Kent’s upcoming cowboy series has the first book available for pre-order now. It is Undeniably pre-orderable, nab yours!

3. Kris Reisz has launched Books Love You. Check it out for recs and write your own book love story. 

4. Considering an information diet for Lent?
has some tips.

5. And finally, look, a cute cat picture. Who doesn’t need a
tube of cat

And now I must give the husband juice and antibiotics.

I’m over here, and there too

I’m not actually here today. I have a bonus day with my oldest, who in lieu of a field trip is here with me while little sister is at school. It hardly ever happens that I get solo kid time, so we’ve been making the most of it. You can see what we’ve gotten up to on Flickr. I didn’t take pictures of her
doing the maze
of Theseus and the minotaur, but I think I covered the rest.

And then head over to Genreality to read the post I have up there on the topic of writing spaces, with still more pictures.
