Okay, so much good! First, happy one-day-belated book birthday to Faith Hunter and Carol Malcolm, whose JANE YELLOWROCK WORLD COMPANION came out in digital yesterday and is available everywhere! They’re having a release party starting at noon today (though you can RSVP now) over at Bitten by Books and giving away a $50 gift card! Also new and exciting, Audible has just released an audio collection of Jane Yellowrock stories called CAT O’NINE TALES, which is available here. (Incidentally, Jane Yellowrock made the Barnes & Noble Book Blog’s list of “The 10 Most Badass Women in Fantasy Literature”.)
Congratulations to R.S. Belcher whose amazing debut novel THE SIX GUN TAROT has now made two (count ‘em, 2!) Best of the Year lists:
Forbidden Planet Blog: http://www.forbiddenplanet.co.uk/blog/2013/best-of-the-year-2013-andrew-girdwood/
Passionate Foodie Blog: http://passionatefoodie.blogspot.com/2013/12/my-favorite-fiction-books-of-2013.html
Faith Hunter’s BLACK ARTS cover won one of the first rounds of voting for the Hottest Heroine Covers 2013 at Addicted 2 Heroines. I count two Knight Agency authors (I’m sensing a numerical theme here) in the 3rd round voting: Chloe Neill and Kerry Schafer. Go, see for yourself which is your favorite. You might win a $30 Amazon Gift card (US/CA) or $30 in books from the Book Depository (INT) via their Rafflecopter giveaway.
Speaking of giveaways, if you haven’t checked out J. Kathleen Cheney’s debut THE GOLDEN CITY (which, incidentally, made Library Journal’s list of Best Books of 2013:SF/Fantasy), GoodReads is giving you the chance to win one of eight copies. Twenty-nine days left to enter. That’s more than the shopping days left until Christmas!
If you want your own say in best of the year lists, you have until 11:59 pm on Friday, December 20th to vote in Paranormal Haven’s Best of 2013 Awards. There are some amazing choices here, including, of course, books by Chloe Neill, Nalini Singh, Gena Showalter and other favorites!
In other news, Diana Rodriguez Wallach was amazing enough to mention my YA novel VAMPED in her post “Give an Indie Book for Christmas – 3 Books for Paranormal Lovers” along with SUPERNATURAL HUNTERS by Kelly Parra and the anthology VERY SUPERSTITIOUS, so, of course, I have to include this in my round up as well!
One thought on “Book Birthdays, Giveaways and Best of 2013!”
Such pretty covers! And yup, VAMPED def deserves to be on the Christmas list. One of my favorites books. Congrats for making her list!
