Releases Galore, Reading, Writing & Life

Happy Tuesday All,

Well Blogger has changed its format on me, so I'm learning the new format. Please bear with me while I figure it all out (it doesn't look hard, however, like with all changes you have to get used to them).

The other thing you'll have to bear with me on is the fact that I'm behind on new release reports:

Two of my chapter mates have recently released new novels, and I wanted to make sure I let you all know about it:

Suzan Harden has put out a brand new e-book called Amish, Vamps & Thieves book 4 in her Bloodlines series. You can get it on Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble Nook. Also available is Ms. Harden's newest Erotica, Seasons Of Magick: Autumn on Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble Nook.

Melissa Ohnoutka has also put out a brand new short e-book, entitled, The Wicked Secrets Beneath which you can find on Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble Nook.

There's a lot going on in my life, mostly good stuff, but it sure keeps me busy. I'm working on one of my WIPs (Works In Progress), which is one of the things keeping me busy. The other thing is family and friends--but I enjoy that kind of busyness.

The other thing is, if you haven't checked out Beth Fantaskey and you like vampires, please check out her Jessica books! The first one is Jessica's Guide To Dating On The Dark Side, which I got on my e-reader. I read it and thought "Interesting...I might read more." I found out she posted a prequel to the sequel (short story) on her website, read that, and fell even more in love with the story and purchased the sequel, Jessica Rules The Dark Side, on my e-reader. The e-book version of the sequel came with the short story that was on Ms. Fantaskey's website, which is really cool because now I have all 3 stories. I love them. Very romantic, and the second one has so much suspense! I stayed up late to finish reading it. They're in print and in e-book form (well the short story isn't in print, but the other two are). These vampires are unlike any I've read. They're slightly darker than some of the other vampires out there, but not by much. It's a YA series that I truly have enjoyed and if she puts out any more, I'll be wanting to read them.

The sequel to Josephine Angelini's Starcrossed, entitled, Dreamless comes out in May (release date: May 29, 2012). I've already pre-ordered this one (in print). I loved Starcrossed. I've read it probably around 3 times and would read it again. I cannot wait to read this one, and I've been chomping at the bit to read it since last year!

I'm hoping to finish reading Nicholas Sparks' The Lucky One before I see the movie. We'll see if that happens. LOL. Either way, I think I'll like the movie. The previews look good. My favorite N. Sparks' books (and movies) are A Walk To Remember and The Notebook. I think those two are his best.

So what's going on in your world? Read anything good lately? Seen any good movies? Feel free to chime in :-)

Update Added 2:57 p.m. Central Time 4/24/2012:  A follower posted this comment (I saw it waiting for me in moderation and decided to post it here instead of in the comment section):  "In December, the City of Mesquite, NV is hosting a "Weekend of Writers" including booths, workshops, and many other events for the city. Authors can come and sell books, do signings, and many other activities. For more information:  mattjenbennett@yahoo.com"  ***PLEASE NOTE:  I don't have any further information about this, so if you're interested, contact J.J. at the email listed in the quotes. Thanks!***

Have A Terrific Tuesday!
