Shameless Promotion of My Fellow Writers

Just a few things I want to mention about some of the brilliant writers I have had the privilege of connecting with via the Internet:

L.J. Cohen's novel, The Between came out on 1/13/12. 

I've read it and it's fabulous.  I don't actually read much YA or Fantasy but I plowed right through this book.  It's refreshingly different.  Well-paced and wonderfully written.  I mean I felt like I was THERE.


Here is a blurb I borrowed from L.J.'s blog:

High school senior Lydia Hawthorne is less than grateful when Oberon has her snatched from the Mortal world and she finds out she's actually Fae. And not just any Fae, but a trueborn with enough inherent magic to tip the balance between Oberon and Titania's warring Bright and Shadow courts. 

But that's their game and she doesn't want to play by their rules. Together with Clive Barrow, a Bright Court Fae with embarrassing family ties to the Mortal world, Lydia fights to regain her old life, fueling her magic with the very Human power of love and loss, challenging the essential nature of Faerie itself.


One place you can obviously purchase it is on Amazon.  Also, here is a post from L.J.'s blog about her journey in publishing this novel. 

Check out this book!  It is well worth it!

Also I'd like to say congratulations to Melodie Wright of Forever Rewrighting who landed an agent recently!  WOO HOO!!!!  To hear about how she snagged her agent, read this post.  Congrats!  Can't wait to see your book on the shelves and really can't wait for others to read it because it is incredible.

On March 5, 2012 you can check out Suzan Stirling's Silence of Mercy Bleu which you can read about here

Moving on, the lovely J.C. Martin's novel Oracle has a cover!  Check it out hereOracle comes out on July 30th.  It's a fast-paced, thrilling read.  You don't want to miss it.

Finally, Jennifer Hillier's Freak will be out August 7, 2012 and not a moment too soon!  More on that here.

Hopefully I didn't leave anyone out! 

Who are you happy for right now?

  4. More for my TBR list! I'm counting down the days until Freak. (Which means I should probably finish that visual "review" of Creep I've been working on...) Thanks for sharing the release dates!

  5. A fight between Oberon and Titania is always going to be fun, though tricky for the one stuck in the middle. :)

  8. I am happy for my friend Eowyn Ivey, whose book The Snow Child, comes out next week. It's an Oprah Top 10 pick for Feb., is #1 in Norway and recently chosen as a Waterbrook 11 book, which means extra promotion for a debut author. I interviewed her in Nov. on my blog and I'm so SO thrilled for her right now.
    Also, very excited to read Jennifer's book this summer. It sounds like it's right up my alley.
